Sheparding a Sensational Sugar Creek Hollow Saturday!



Saturdays, as you know, are utterly sensational at Sugar Creek Hollow. We were challenged to use one of two digital images this week. It was either this primitive sheep or Christmas Cardinal, which I used a couple of weeks ago. This was a fun image to work with. I actually printed it out twice on both white and kraft cardstock. I then cut out the body and layered it on the kraft paper. I used black liquid applique to give some texture to the sheep's fur. I printed it out a third time and popped up the heart. I used Stickles to give it a little sparkle!


I used the new Labels 16 from Nestabilties (a current favorite!), and I topped it off with some fun lace!! The sentiment is my own from my computer...a little cheeky, but it was fun, and I thought it went well with the card!! The red is Riding Hood Red from Stampin' Up. Thanks for stopping by today...I hope that you are enjoying the crisp fall air! See you soon!

Hi Nancy, this is too FAB!!! I looked and looked over on the DT blog and could not find your card for this week. However, I am loving the colors you have used and the texture in the little lambs face.
