Color Challenge

It's time to say goodye - and hello - to some H2H people starting with our October sponsors - Nichole and Jena. Thanks for sponsoring us this past month - we appreciate you!!! The drawing for their prizes will be held and posted later this week so be sure to come back and see if you're a winner!

Our new sponsors are Wendy and Teri and here are their prize offerings for November:

From Teri, you could win a CTMH chair caddy filled with a few goodies as a suprise! Woot! Woot! Who doesn't like a good surprise? You can visit Teri at her blog The Midnight Artist.

Wendy has the following prize goodies up for grabs:


Included is a Caboodle WOTG, an envelope pack, a circle album and a little petite perk (autumn). You can stop by and say hello to Wendy at her blog Just Paper and Ink. These will be our last sponsors of the year so be sure to play along with our challenges all month long and increase your chances of winning one of these two great prizes!

I also want to thank Debra, our outgoing Guest DT, for playing along with us in October and welcome our new Guest DT, Allisa, who will be joining us in November. You can read a little about Allisa on this post.

And finally, we have a sad farewell to send out for DT member Brenda, who has decided to step down from her spot. All for good reason though - Brenda is just one super busy lady! Thanks for hanging with us at H2H, Brenda, and best wishes for the future from all of us!

Now on to the challenge. We have a color challenge for you this week. The colors are Autumn Terracotta, Juniper and Bamboo:


or use something close. Here is what the team came up with, starting with our Guest DT, Allisa:

Fabulous! And perfect for the Fall season! Thanks Allisa!







Beautiful work, ladies! Now it's your turn. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

ALL ENTRIES MUST INCLUDE PRODUCTS FROM CLOSE TO MY HEART OR THE LINK WILL BE REMOVED. We have had a lot of entries not follow this one rule so please be sure you have included CTMH products in your artwork.

question...??? Do all items have to be CTMH? I was thinking that you could use other things too as long as you had CTMH products included.?

Hugs,
