Dressed Up in Lace

Hello friends,

Hope you are all well and enjoying your day. Time for another challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow today – time just flies. I decided to make a pink shabby Christmas card with a lace tree, a few roses and pearls for the challenge. The challenge theme is one of my favourites – we want to see the distress technique. Your project must be made in a vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired style. Hope you will hop over and share your creation with us at the Sugar Creek Hollow Distressing Challenge this week. Thank you to the following challenge blogs I entered and their design teams, your hard work is much appreciated.

A Vintage Christmas

Hello friends,

Saturday again and we have a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow . Christmas is around the corner, only 32 days to go, and then we  celebrate again this wonderous time.   The challenge this week is to create a vintage Christmas card. I can remember when I was a little girl (way back in the sixties) we received the most beautiful Christmas cards from friends and family. These cards were all glittery with the most amazing images. My face was permanently covered in glitter because of the many times I pick them up to look closely at this little pieces of art. For my card today I tried to capture those memories with a sweet vintage image from Graphic45 and lots of gold glitter. Hope you like it!

Challenges:
