Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow

Happy Saturday everyone! It's another sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow with the start of a fun, new challenge I know all of you are going to like. We're challenging you to create a card or project with "Handmade Flowers" and excited to see what inspiration you can share with us!

Here's a closeup of the handmade flowers I created for my Sugar Creek Hollow card this week. Isn't this hydrangea flower beautiful?! I learned of this from a fellow blogger, Zulma (My Little Scrappy Owl blog), from a challenge entry she submitted in the Sugar Creek Hollow "Inside Out" challenge a couple weeks ago. Zulma has a fantastic tutorial on making this flower and you can view it HERE on her blog. Please visit her blog and tutorial and leave her a little love - her creations will inspire you.

I created my card using the Sugar Creek Hollow digi "Eastern Bluebird". I colored this wonderful bird using Prismacolor pencils and gamsol for blending. It's framed in a diecut only available from Heartfelt Creations. The papers used for the frames and card background are from Webster Pages.

Now for some other exciting news, I'd like to introduce the newest guest designer at Sugar Creek Hollow and the first guest designer selected from our "Card of the Week" winners. It's LANEY and you can see her wonderful creations at her blog, "Laney's Place".

We love your comments each week about our cards and projects and would love for you to share your creativity with us in the "Handmade Flower" challenge this week. Hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by!
