Sugar Creek Hollow Blog Hop and Prizes!

Welcome to the celebration of the Sugar Creek Hollow Anniversary!  Not only are we introducing a new challenge this week, but we're also having a Blog Hop today with lots of prizes to win on each designer's blogs and all-new digi stamps being introduced.  If you arrived here from Heide's blog you're on track. If not you can start at the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog to stay in the right queue or follow the list of the designers blogs toward the end of this post. 

So to get started, I'm introducing the new digi from Sugar Creek Hollow called "Dressmaker's Form". 

This vintage looking image is perfect for all occasions including Mother's Day this year. I've combined it with papers from Cosmo Cricket "Material Girl" and October Afternoon's "Thrift Shop".  The scissors are another Sugar Creek Hollow image called "Dressmaker Shears".  



Our new challenge this week is "ANYTHING GOES" so create a card any way you'd like and enter it in the challenge! 

Today, in addition to announcing our weekly challenge, we are having a Blog Hop at Sugar Creek Hollow as part of our first anniversary celebrations. All the designers have a giveaway for a winner chosen randomly from the people who leave comments on their blogs. There will be a grand prize winner chosen from the people who leave a comment on the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge Blog.

The Sugar Creek Hollow Blog Hop will run in conjunction with the challenge from today Saturday, March 19th until 12:00 midnight ET on Friday, March 25th. Winners will be announced on each designer's blog and the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge Blog on March 26th.

WIN THIS BLOG CANDY PACKAGE HERE ON MY BLOG!
Here's what I'm giving away to some lucky crafter - quite a package that includes two 6x6 designer paper pads each with coordinating embellishments, two clear acrylic stamp sets that are newly released, Flower Soft and other wonderful embellishments. I selected and purchased these from Archivers - just the kind of things that I would love to use. So if you like my work, you'll love this blog candy package.

To be eligible for my giveaway you must leave me a comment telling me which stamp in the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe is your favorite. While I don't require you to follow me to win, it sure would be wonderful if you did. In fact, I'll automatically add your name a second time in the random draw if you do follow me - that gives you an additional chance to win.  In addition, if you'd like you can tell me what types of stamps you might want to see added to the Sugar Creek Hollow line of digis. Don’t forget to leave a contact email in case you are the winner on my blog.  I'll announce the random winner next Saturday, March 26.

Now here's the order of the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog Hop - your next stop on the hop from here is Cec.

Sharon (you are here)

I look forward to hearing your comments and hopefully seeing your creation entered into the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge.

Have fun and thanks for stopping by!






I'm entering this card in the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge #85 for the sketch I followed in creating my card today. Here is the sketch (I flipped it for my card):

I love seeing images with dressforms - something about them really appeals to me but I can never seem to find the right way to use them myself. Your card is amazing!
As for digi images - I love all kinds but I'm particularly drawn to silhouettes, text art etc - or images that are easy to paper-piece, because I don't have Copics or other suitable medium to colour home printed images.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Love your card! I will be happy to sign up to receive your blog. I am a big fan of MoeJoe, I mean Mary, so I am sure I will soon be a big fan of yours. My favorite - while I am liking the new daffadil image ( really love the Joy to the World one and the poinsettia tea cup and sentiment. I keep forgetting, I would love to see a dog - there is a cat angel, I think, and us dog people need equal time. Now, if it is a basset hound - I would have it in my hand in a New York Minute!!!! OR, since I am from Iowa - maybe a pig to go with the cow? Anyway, gotta scoot and sign up and then check more of your blog for some fun creations. Thanks for sharing.

Scrolling down your blog, I love your cards!

I love the 'Call Me Beautiful Digi Stamp', but after seeing how Heidi used 'Lizzie Bunny' I'm torn between the two.

Your blog candy are items I would buy. (I have all four 6x6 pads of the Stella and Rose series!) Thank you for being so generous with your candy.
