Welcome to Sugar Creek Hollow and another Sensational Saturday.  This week we are challenging you to make SHAPED CARDS.  Now everyone will tell you a square or a rectangle is a shape and they are correct but we want you to stretch your creativity and to try making cards in lots of other shapes.  We want to remind you that we are a vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired challenge blog so lets see your shaped cards in one of those styles.  And one other reminder - our challenges go live on Saturday morning at 8:00 am EST so please do not link to a post prior to that day and time.

Here is my shaped card this week:
Wash Basin Water Pitcher
I have a basin and pitcher just like this!  I was delighted when Priscilla created this digi, so vintage and I can use it for so many different occasions.  My card was made with the Grand Caliber, the Grand Circles and Grand Scalloped Circles.  My design paper is from My Mind's Eye 29th St. Market Carefree collection.  I used a MS border punch, lace and a Magnolia Doohickey die.

This week we have a wonderful sponsor, "priscillastyles" Store.  The random winner will receive $10 worth of digis of their choice from "priscillastyles" Store and a Sugar Creek Hollow winner's badge to display on her blog.

The Design Team will also choose a Card of the Week and that creator will receive a badge to display on her blog and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

The Design Team has created some wonderful cards for your inspiration using images from "priscillastyles" Store.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

GORGEOUS! I love the shape, the colour scheme and most of all the colouring of the pitcher and basin. They look so realistic.

Good morning Marsha, what a wonderful card you've made this week. I adore it in these purples. I have a set like this too that belonged to Rick's grandmother and wouldn't take anything for it. I love the soft shading you've done on the image and that center piece on your gorgeous bow is lovely. Have a wonderful weekend.
