Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog--Welcome to the first challenge!!!

I am the first sponsor, and I am offering this prize for the first week's winner: Be Yourself stamp set, Winter Cozy Chenille Sassy Strands, From the Heart card kit, Autumn Harvest Organdy Ribbon Rounds, My Creations Circle Album, and Spring accent beads. Retail value of this prize package is over $55! Everyone at Heart 2 Heart is so excited to start this challenge blog, and want you to help spread the word with everyone you know!



Let's Get started! This week the challenge is to make whatever your little heart desires using the colors: Your creation doesn't have to be 100% CTMH, but try to use mostly CTMH, and feel free to use up your retired products as well. Anything used that is not current or CTMH, please let us know if/where we can find some. After you have your creation all finished, post on your blog, and post a comment on the Heart 2 Heart blog with a link to your artwork. Your artwork will be judged, and there will be 5 picked for Friday Five--perks like having your artwork recognized, and getting a Friday Five Badge, and a chance to be asked to be a guest designer!!! How cool is that!?! For more details about how this will all work, check out the home blog Heart 2 Heart. Don't forget to check out the fabulous eye candy offered by the design team!

As a sponsor, I get to find out the challenge about a week in advance so I can have my art ready to go with the release of the challenge. Here it is: I made a gift bag with a matching card. Gift bag was made with a modified Box in a Bag pattern. The handles are cut with a cricut, use the number 0 from any font set. Cut out 4 of them so you can put another on the inside.
Teachers love to get apples, so if you want to show me some love, click on "Apples on my Desk" below. Thanks for visiting!

I love the colors on this card. The little bee is so cute. I will have to pass this onto my CTMH consultant when we have a crop in a couple weeks.
