Are you ready for our final Heart 2 Heart challenge for 2014?!?  It is time to drag out the tinsel!  We are throwing down a glitzy color challenge for you: Silver, Lagoon, and Black!  Here are a few photos to inspire you.

All of our Design Team members have been asked to interpret this final 2014 challenge, and here is their inspiration for YOU!



It has truly been a wonderful six months working with all of these talented ladies!

You have all month long to take either (or both!) of our December challenges.  We will be back in late 2014 to thank our "retiring" DT members and in early 2015 to welcome our new team members.  Are you going to be part of the action?  We hope so!  Link up your Tinsel Time creation here and happy crafting to finish out 2014!
