Quilting with Sugar Creek Hollow - A Sneak Peek


Happy Saturday everyone! We have snow here in Charlotte, NC...can you believe that one? We just didn't want to miss the party with the rest of the US! This has been one wild winter. Doesn't it make you want to hunker down under a nice cozy and comfortable quilt? These wonderful quilt images are from an awesome new digital stamp company that is officially debuting on March 1st. However, you can get in on the ground floor! Hop on over to the Sugar Creek Hollow blog and become a follower. There are images already available for purchase and even some freebies!

Our challenge with these three images was to use them on one card. I used the sentiment on the inside of the card, and I was able to use some scraps inside. The quilt block image is a fun one, and it actually has two names. Coming from a quilting background, I consult my mother for all quilt-related questions. And, she told me that this block is called both Bird of Paradise and 54-40 or Fight. Wow, they always have wonderfully rich names for quilt blocks, and they all have a unique history.


Another wonderful part of this preview...you can buy all three images for $4.99, and if you buy all three by today, you can have two more adorable stamps for free!

My card is also for two challenges:

Color Throwdown #79 - Sage Shadow, Blush Blossom and Riding Hood Red
Mercy's Sketch Challenge (MTSC60) - a sketch
