Sugar Creek Hollow Saturday

Tracy, the wonderful and generous owner of Sugar Creek Hollow has a freebie for you to pick up for one week only when you go to the challenge blog during the blog hop.

My Card for the Blog Hop - This card is included in the Blog Candy.

I used the new Petal Cross image that is being released today to create my card. I colored the image with my Copic markers and added clear at you spice glitter pen.  In real life it is super glittery.  (It's hard to see in the photo.)   The background is part of a glassine bag that I cut apart and stamped on with Staz-On ink, I added a piece of vintage sheet music, some Hero Arts clear round gems and some Crinkle ribbon to finish off my card.  Super simple, but pretty.

Today 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 our blogs.  There will be a grand prize winner chosen from the people who leave a comment on the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog.  
The blog hop will run in conjunction with the challenge from 8:00 am EST on Saturday, March 19th to 12 midnight EST on Friday, March 25th.  Comments left after the deadline will not be included in any of the draws.  Winners will be announced on each blog and the challenge blog on March 26th.

BLOG CANDY CONTENTS: The card that I made for the hop will also be included along with doilies, Kraft paper bags, Large & Med. glassine bags, Pink, Red, Manilla Small tags, Large Manilla tags, Marmalade & Lilac Hand dyed Crinkle ribbon all from my Etsy Shop.  I will also throw in a few extra surprises. I will also be including a mini stamp set or two from inkadinado.

To be eligible for my giveaway:
  1. Become a follower, if you are not one already.
  2. Leave me a comment telling me which stamp is your favorite from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe.  
  3. 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 stamps.  
  4. Don’t forget to leave a contact email in case you are the winner on my blog.

Hopefully you have arrived here from Marsha’s blog but if you are lost, here is the order of the blog hop:

Hi Mary, I love your card - so very elegant. My favourite images are the insect tiles. Hmmm I would love to see more silhouettes and heavy line images that can be printed and used without too much colouring. Great for CAS style and people like me who don't have Copics or Prismas.
PS - I also took a peek at your Etsy store, and I'll be back for a closer look ;)

Hi Mary! Gorgeous card - love the colors you chose. I already subscribe to your blog. My favorite image - well I really like the new daffadil one but I really liked the card you did with the Joy to the World one and then I am just in love with the poinsettia tea cup and the sentiment. I have another poinsettia tea cup stamp so I am thinking do I really need another - I think yes - esp. for the semtiment that goes with it!

Fun blog candy!

I love the fibrant colors you've used. The blues are beautiful. I misunderstood about having to tell each team member what my favorite is. I'm leaving it at the end of the contest. Hugs, dj1952
