Sugar Creek Hollow Sensational Saturday

Welcome to Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and a new challenge.

First, I want to announce that I will be leaving the design team at the end of the year.  Designing for Sugar Creek Hollow has been such a joy and I have loved every minute!  I will miss everyone, especially Tracy who was my vintage mentor.  Heide will also be leaving, she is a fabulous designer and will be greatly missed.  Renee will be staying, but scaling back her participation.  Starting in the New Year Renee will become our Feature Artist and will show us all how Recycling and Repurposing are done the vintage way when those challenges come up. These ladies have made valuable contributions to the Sugar Creek Hollow team and have become lovely online crafting friends.

Next, we have three new designers coming on board and they are joining us with their vintage beauties for the challenge this week so you can get a preview of what they will be showing you starting in January.

Give a big welcome to:

Linda Payne from Payne Holler Cards
Peggy Marsh from The Wired Angel
Daniele Haddon from The Musings of a Chocoholic 

Now on to our challenge. With Christmas close at hand, our challenge to you this week is to make CHRISTMAS CARDS IN NON-TRADITIONAL COLORS. Don't forget that we are a vintage, shabby chic or primitive challenge and want you to create in those styles.

We have a lovely new sponsor this week. Please welcome Delicious Doodles who will be providing one random winner with 4 digis of her choice. The random winner will also receive a Sugar Creek Hollow winner's badge to display. The Design Team will also choose a Card of the Week and the creator will also receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Don't forget, we also have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from our challenge entries between now and Christmas Eve.
To inspire you all of our current and our new designers have created some fabulous Christmas cards in non-traditional colors using a couple of the images from Delicious Doodles.  Here is my creation using the image "A Crofter's  Winter":

Card ingredients:
The Paper Studio's "A Country Christmas" design paper
Georgia Pacific and SU cardstock, distress inks, Copic marker
Cricut embellishments and sentiment

Thanks for visiting, I love reading your comments and appreciate all your support!

Hi Marsha, what a gorgeous blue/green you have used to create your beautiful card...isn't this just the best image? Love the snowflakes scattered around your card. I know you will be having your hands full in the next few months, but I will so miss working with you on the DT. Since I have followed you for a long time, I will still be around, but it won't be the same as sharing each week. Take care and know that I will always be your friend. Have a great weekend.
hugs, Patti
