Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge


I have been wanting to play the challenge over on Sugar Creek Hollow for a very long time and finally, today, I took the time to do just that!!  This week's challenge is to use LACE on your creation along with one of their images (and they have some awesome images!).  I happened to have a couple of images they offered up over on CDAC (Crafter's Digital Art Center) so that's what I chose to use.

I just thought this image was so clever and I wanted to make a couple of cards using it for the upcoming craft show I'm a part of this weekend.  I think it will be snapped up in a jiffy!! (Be sure to click on the image to enlarge ... so you can read the words!)

I have used a 'copper' metallic paper for the background scallop circle as well as the photo corners.  The Kaiser pearls are also copper colored and were purchased at Joans Gardens.  A Wilton's paper doily helped showcase this beautiful digi along with DCWV dp and Wrights Lace trim from the sewing department of JoAnn's.  I wished my photo really showed how pretty this card really is!!!

Now that you've seen my card for the challenge.  Here's another image from Sugar Creek Hollow that I thought was really clever and turned it into a CAS creation to add to my stash for the craft show!

How clever is this digi!!  I simply rubbed Pan Pastel Artist Chalk over the front of the image with my finger then inked the edge with Old Olive SU ink.  I also added Gold Stickles around the black lined border of the image as well as around the outside parameter of the Graphic45 background.

A very easy, CAS (clean & simple) creation that looks awesome (my opinion of course! LOL).

If you're not familiar with Sugar Creek Hollow you really need to take a moment and pop over!  The DTs work is AMAZING and Tracey is a BEAUTIFUL ARTIST!!  Their work will definitely INSPIRE you!!

THANKS so much for stopping by ... your visits mean SO MUCH to me!!  Have a happy day!
