Happy New Year - Welcome to 2011's first Sensational Saturday!

this week we were asked to make a card or project using this sketch:
The sketch is on SCH Blog and everyone is invited to enter a card using this sketch; you are not required to use an image from Sugar Creek Hollow but if you do you will get two entries into the random prize draw.  The winner of that draw will receive a digi of their choice from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe and a badge to display on their blog.  Once we reach a minimum of 10 entries, the Design Team will select a Card of the Week and the creator of that card will receive a special badge to display on their blog.  NOW GET THIS...Every month there will be a Guest Designer chosen from the Cards of the Week and that person will be invited to join the Design Team in a challenge.  There are lots of reasons to enter so we can't wait to see your fabulous creations.

My card loosely follows the sketch but I mirrored it :) This paper is a digital paper from DCWV, it is called Ciao Bella; it has that very special DCWV look to it doesn't it? I just love this entire series of paper and you will probably be seeing more!! I thought it had a romantic, valentiney look to it. The Sugar Creek Hollow image is the "A" in the Alpha Flash Card image. If you don't have this set, you should think about how versatile it is; lots of possibilities here! There are so many images over at Sugar Creeks's Shoppe, please stop by and browse though all the images. There are certainly some there screaming to live on your computer!!

Did you know? - - - The proceeds of sales from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe go to provide food, clothing and shelter for those who are less fortunate.  If you don't have any images from the Shoppe yet, check it out and when you buy something to use on your creations you can say that you have helped out too.

 You can see each of the design teams creations on SCH's blog or you may visit each of their personal blogs, they are all listed on the side bar!! When visiting their personal blogs you will be able to browse and fill yourself with inspiration. Enjoy our efforts today, good luck on your entry!!
