Sensational Sketch at Sugar Creek Hollow

Hi everyone! I am so glad it's the weekend! We're putting up our Christmas tree and decorations this weekend and I love the transition to the Christmas theme in our home. I also look forward to Saturday's when I showcase Sugar Creek Hollow and the beautiful vintage digi stamps they offer. This week we have a sketch challenge for you and if you enter a card following the sketch below you could be selected to win a free digi stamp of your choice at Sugar Creek Hollow.

Here's the wonderful sketch this week. Stop by the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe and pick up a freebie image if you don't already have an SCH image to use. Better yet, you can purchase this gorgeous Baby Jesus image there and use it like I have here with the sketch.

I love this image so much. It's a beautiful portrait of Jesus drawn by a young lady from Poland. When you see the image printed in real life it takes your breath away. Here I've mounted it in a Spellbinders Foliage Frame and added one of their Fancy Tags. The paper I've used is My Mind's Eye "Holly Jolly" and I like the non-traditional but vintage look it sets for this Christmas card.

For more inspiration from our fabulously talented design team see links below to the designer's blogs or visit the Sugar Creek Hollow blog and see their creations. Your eyes will be delighted that you do!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, this card is a show stopper! That frame is totally perfect for this amazing image. It is such a joy to see how you have made this card into a real "praise and worship" of our Lord. I like the word Nancy used, exquisite!!

Sharon, as usual yours is one of my very favorite cards. I have a frame very similar to this one and thanks to you I want to pull it out and use it again. I admit that I have so much that some things start collecting dust because I forget about them. Thanks for the inspiration! This is absolutely beautiful.
