Sugar Creek Hollow.........

Morning peeps today I normally show a card for the challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow but the regular teamies are having a week off, however there is still a challenge this week, past design team members have got together for this weeks challenge which is ........you'll have to click here to find out......ok I'll tell you its WE ARE FAMILY.

Yesterday I spent the day crafting at the Great British Craft festival, we did 4 workshops working with Hunkydory Craft products......which I have to confess I don't ussually buy as I love to colour and create, one of the workshops was with IndigoBlu using the gilding flakes with their glue as well as using Pan Pastels........now this was the wokshop I was really looking forward to but it was by far the messiest, my fingers turned green and very sticky......not a good combination. I love the blending effects of the pastels but you need to fix afterwards as they transfer, not sure if I will be getting into these as they are rather messy, but at least I've had a play and satisfied my curiosity. The day went by so quick and was thoroughly enjoyable as we were all well looked after with plenty of tea and coffee and a lovely buffet lunch, then at the end of the day they gave us a goody bag which contained enough Christmas goodies to make about 100 cards......I kid you not.
Today I'm going back to the show as its SHOPPING day, today and tomorrow.......yayyyyyyyyy!!!. sorry getting abit carried away as I really don't need anything but it would be rude not to go.

Thought I'd show a Christmas card that I made using images and papers from the new Polka Doodles Here comes Christmas Cd, I layered up the letters for more depth, but this was a real nice and easy card to make after all the manipulation I did in gimp.
