Sugar Creek Hollow New Fall Images!

Hello, and happy Saturday to everyone! It is an especially happy Saturday for me because it is my husband and I 17th wedding anniversary! We were married on September 11, 1993. I don't want to down play the terrible tragedy that happened on September 11, 2001, but I doubt that the good Lord would want me to be too terribly sad on my anniversary. I am married to one of the best men I have ever known, and it is cause to celebrate. But still, please everyone take a few moments of silence or prayer for the victims and their loved ones that were effected by the horrific events that took place on that day in 2001. Lets not forget to include the gracious people who assisted in the rescue attempts that day as well. God Bless them all!

Ok, Sugar Creek Hollow has recently added some new Fall and Halloween images to their store, and thanks to last weeks blog hop, they are being snatched up like crazy! Yay! I am so honored to be among the very and I mean very talented design team members, these ladies are amazing paper crafters! With that said, lets move onto the card that I created for today!


Is that pumpkin image exquisite, or what? I so love the pattern in the hat, and the swirls around the pumpkin! Gorgeous! We were asked to follow a sketch challenge this week, which I absolutely love to do! Love sketches, simple and complex, doesn't matter to me!

Here is what I did to create my card. I first printed the image out on some vanilla card stock, colored the image by using very small ink daubers and several different colors of ink starting with the lightest color. I used Stampin Up Ink colors Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, and Dusty Durango. The card base is from DCWV, and so is the orange/rust layer. the Designer paper is from a paper stack by Provo Craft, the leaf embellishments are Prima Marketing. The ribbon layers are all from my stash, and I have had them for so long, I am sorry to say that I can't remember what brands they are. I also added some ink distressing with a sponge and Creamy Caramel SU Ink. I used a darker color to distress with last week and I didn't like it, I think this is much better. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Now, Tracy the owner of Sugar Creek Hollow is working on some Christmas images, so keep coming back to visit we DT member's blogs each week and the SCH blog everyday, to see when the new images will be ready and in the store!

I will be back later today with an announcement!

Until next time..... Blessings, Lisa

I love how the pumpkin pops on the rich gold color you chose. The add-a-face jack is one of my favorites from Sugar Creek Hollow. Great job with it. You've really showcased it's beauty.
