Handmade Flowers Challenge

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday here at Sugar Creek Hollow.  Today we want you to create a card or other paper crafting project and embellish it with flowers that you make yourself.  The flowers can be punched, crochet, fabric or whatever else your creative mind can come up with. Remember, you can't use commercially produced flowers this week - this is a HANDMADE FLOWER challenge.

Each week we will choose one random winner, who will receive a free digi of their choice from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe and a badge to display on your blog.  If you use a Sugar Creek Hollow image you will get two entries in the random draw.  Just follow the instructions on the sidebar to link your second entry.

The Design Team will also choose a Card of the Week and the creator of that card will get a badge to display.  One overall winner will be chosen each month from the Cards of the Week.  That person will be invited to be a Guest Designer and participate in the next challenge.  An image will be provided to them to work with. 

We also want to remind you to come back next Saturday, March 19th for our blog hop. You will see wonderful new cards by our designers and each of them has candy for one lucky winner who comes to comment during the hop as well as a grand prize winner from the challenge blog comments. If you haven't left a comment for a chance to win the anniversary blog candy make sure you do that now so you don't miss out.  The winner of the blog candy will be drawn on March 31st.

This week we are pleased to be joined by LANEY, who is the first Guest Designer to be chosen from our Cards of the Week. All our designers have created some wonderful inspiration for you this week and we hope you will see some new flowers you want to try your hand at. You can check the details of their creations by clicking on their name, which will take you directly to their blogs.
