Sugar Creek Hollow......


Aternoon peeps hope you are all well and enjoying the start of the weekend. At least the weather has improved and is more spring like, only a week to go to Mothers Day so its starting to get busy at work. Its amazing how many women come in buying chocolates for their hubbys mother. I do love this season though as I love the children coming in to get their Mothers a gift especially the boys......so sweet.

Todays sees the start of a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow, this week the theme is Monochromatic green, the stamp that I have used is a new one that I picked up when I was in France the other week. I found this delightful shop full of scrummy goodies at the next town that we were staying. I think the town was called Lagney sur la Marne, the shop was open on the Sunday and the town was delightful with a local market on at the time. The stamp was made in France so it was a great souvenir. I stamped the image with green and sprinkled some gold embossing powder on part of the cage
