Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge

Hi again, I have been anxious for this challenge - love love love coloring this one (-:

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we have a great challenge - EMBOSSING. You can create your vintage, shabby chic or primitive card with dry or heat embossing.

Join us in saying hello to Digi Doodle Shop, a lovely new sponsor who will be providing one random winner with a $10 gift certificate to their store.
The random winner will also receive a winner's badge from Sugar Creek Hollow to display on her blog. In addition the Design Team will select one project as Card of the Week and the creator of that card will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.
The Design Team has used a number of the fabulous images from Digi Doodle Shop and have created some wonderful inspiration for you.

I dry embossed but it doesnt show well ..used my Score Buddy and scored the lines in the designer paper (my wallpaper) ...

This image was a real joy for me but for a personal reason - My Grandmother aka MawMaw, had a hutch (or "stand" as she called it) so similar to this one....along with the lamp, perfume bottles, pitcher, hat, books (she was a school teacher) and vase of flowers. In that little pink pot - she kept her Bobby pins!! who remembers spinning and curling our hair with them LOL....In her picture frame was a pic of her mother - very stern looking lady in a black and white picture. This stand sat over by her bed....its been almost 30 years since she passed but it feels like yesterday in so many ways...
the only thing she didnt regularly have on her hutch was the teddy bear (that was upstairs in the very old crib she hung onto ..and I wish I had kept ...big sigh)..Anyway, coloring this image was a welcome open door to my childhood and treasured memories.


hope this has in some way inspired you....and you get time to enter our challenge this week.
hugs,

This is one super image, and reminds me of my house! I have a wash stand in my dining room and we still use the brass Rayo lamps with the glass shades. This card feels like home, so I know how you feel. Your coloring has brought this to life, my friend. Your GM would be proud.
