Saturday with Sugar Creek!

This week we had an awesome sketch to work with and gorgeous winter and Christmas images to chose from! I chose the beautiful street lamp for this card! Check out the Shoppe for all the new images!! Here is the sketch:
 
You are invited to play along with us, we would love to have you join us and show off your art! This sketch is such fun and easy to work with!  Here is a close up of the image I used:
In fact, this sketch was so much fun I decided to make two cards this week. This next card is using a gorgeous tea / coffee cup. I did some paper piecing on this one, what do you think?

The designer paper on this card was computer generated from some Christmas images I have collected. I think it made an interesting background! Both the beautiful cup and the sentiment are SCH images. The sentiment is a FREEBIE, just go to the Shoppe and click on Freebies.

You will definitely want to visit all the other design team members sites for more inspiration and eye candy! You can find them listed on the side bar or you can click below! Thanks for visiting, I hope you will take the time to leave a comment before leaving!

Donna, these are both gorgeous cards! They look like the old cards you find in a tattered box in Grandma's attic. Beautiful colors and I LOVE the sparkle ribbons and paper on them.
