Shabby Bird House

Hey there,

This week I have been laying low and trying to recover from my unexpected surgery last week. I was happy to find my way into my craft room and allow myself to craft a bit.

Today, we are featuring this adorable bird house by Sugar Creek Hollow. Isn't it just the cutest?

I decided to create a shabby birdhouse for my card. I colored the birdhouse using a distress technique by combining different colors of browns and tans. I added the bird, a branch, some ribbon and blue stickles to put the look together. I also did some stitching since it didn't require too much work in my part.

Altogether, I think it turned out pretty good despite me being on pain killers {wink}.

Now, it's time to go on over to the SCH blog to see the rest of the DT's cards. Then, don't forget to participate to play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by. Stay warm and have a blessed weekend.

Flutter Butterfly

Hey there,

I hope today where ever you are, you are filled with warmth.

We are digging out from another white out new storm hitting us with 13" of snow. My DH has the job most husbands have today to dig out from the storm. For me, I'll stay inside and in my craft room where I know it's safe.

Last week had to have surgery again so I'm still recovering. I just found yesterday that this is not the end. I have another 6 months of more pain before I get any relief. In two weeks I start Lupron shots to help with the endometriosis. If any of my readers have ever been on Lupron, I would love to hear from you. Please share the good, the bad and the ugly.

Right now being in my craft room is the only sanity I have. This week, I actually made two cards. This card I'm showing you today is for the Flutter By Wednesday White on White Challenge with either a Butterfly, Fairy or Angel.

I decided to use one of Sugar Creek Hollow's newest digi. After I colored the butterfly, I used some glimmer mist to give it some extra shine. I colored two of them and popped one up.

The rest of the card was pretty easy to put together.

Okay, time for me to get some rest and lay down for a while. Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to your comments. Stay warm my friends!!

Thank You

Hey there,

Welcome back to another Sugar Creek Hollow Sensational Saturday!! This week's challenge is to make a card using FABRIC.

For my fabric piece , I decided to make a flower. I used the Tattered Flower die from Tim Holtz. Once I put the flower together, I added a pearl for the center.

The image is the Barn Swallow. I used my copics to color then, I added a thin layer of Glossy Accents.

I hope you give this challenge a try. It's a lot of fun!! For more inspiration, check out the DT's cards by clicking to their links on the sidebar. You are going to be blown away!!

In His Image

Hey there,

Welcome back!! I am so glad you are visiting!!

Today, we are starting a New Year at Sugar Creek Hollow. We have new challenges and prizes you won't want to miss.

But, first... Did you know that the proceeds of the sales from Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe go to provide food, clothing and shelter for those who are less fortunate? If you don't have any images from the shoppe yet, make sure to check it out and when you buy something to use for your creation, you can say that you helped too.

This week we're having a Sketch Challenge. These are my favorite challenges since the hardest part is already done for you.

Everyone is invited to enter a card HERE using the sketch provided. You are not required to use an image from Sugar Creek Hollow, however if you do, you will be entered twice into a random prize draw.

The winner of the draw will receive a SCH digi of their choice and a badge to display on their blog. In addition to this, once we receive a minimum of 10 entries, the DT will select a Card of the Week and the creator will receive a special badge for their blog. Every month, there will be a Guest Designer chose from the Cards of the Week. The winner will be invited to join the DT in a challenge.

How's that for a New Challenge and Prize Giveaway?!! So, make sure play along!!

For my card, I used the Cameo Ladies set. I love this digi set!! It comes with 5 different images of women and a frame.

Now it's time to take a look at the other cards the DT created for you. Take a look here. Then, join us for our weekly challenge.
