Sugar Creek Hollow Non-Traditional Christmas colors

Welcome to Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow
and a new challenge. Before I get to the challenge, let me tell you
about some changes to the Sugar Creek Hollow Design Team.

First, we are losing a couple of our wonderful designers because of
family commitments. Marsha has been with Sugar Creek Hollow
since the very beginning and her wonderful vintage designs will be
missed. While Heide hasn't been with us as long, she has
inspired us all each week with some gorgeous designs. 
 These ladies have made valuable contributions
to the Sugar Creek Hollow team and have become lovely online crafting

I am
going to stay with the team but will be scaling back my participation.
Starting in the New Year I will become a Feature Artist and will
show you all how Recycling and Repurposing are done the vintage way when
those challenges come up.

Next, we have three new designers coming on board and they are joining
us with their vintage beauties for the challenge this week so you can
get a preview of what they will be showing you starting in January.

Give a big welcome to:

Linda Payne from Payne Holler Cards
Peggy Marsh from The Wired Angel
Daniele Haddon from The Musings of a Chocoholic 

Now on to our challenge. With Christmas close at hand, our challenge to
you this week is to make CHRISTMAS
. Don't forget that we are a
vintage, shabby chic or primitive challenge and want you to create in
those styles.

We have a lovely new sponsor this week. Please welcome Delicious
Doodles who will be providing one random winner with 4 digis of her
choice. The random winner will also receive a Sugar Creek Hollow
winner's badge to display. The Design Team will also choose a Card of
the Week and the creator will also receive a badge to display and will
be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Don't forget, we also have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from
our challenge entries
between now and Christmas Eve.

And now, on to my card made with the beautiful A Crofter's Winter.

My border punch is from Martha Stewart.
The flourish is from Marianne's Creatables.
Cuttlebug makes the embossing folder
and the sparkle comes from Stickles in Diamond.
