Sensational Saturdays at Sugar Creek Hollow

Saturdays are always sensational at Sugar Creek Hollow!  That's when the design team creates new cards to share with you for inspiration.  Now who doesn't need inspiration when it comes to making Christmas cards?  Well, I'm all about Christmas right now - I've jumped across Halloween and Thanksgiving already!  Today I'd like to share "Christmas Cardinal" designed by Tracy's very talented daughter, Hilary.


I love birds!  Not only do I like to color them, I also like to photograph them.  I'm so glad I purchased the newest Basic Grey "Jovial" collection early.  I think this pattern just compliments this gorgeous Cardinal image.  My coloring is with Copic markers and the bow and lace are from my "stash".   The poinsettia flowers are from Prima.

Please make sure to visit  the Sugar Creek Hollow store here and my team mate's blogs to see their creations, they are listed on my sidebar.  Thanks for visiting!
