Christmas Time! Part One

I KNOW!  Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner and my FAVORITE - Christmas!!!  This week's challenge is to create anything Christmas.  This will be the first of our Christmas challenges and you get to pick whatever - be it a card, tag, scrapbook page, etc.   Grab those Close to My Heart goodies and show us what you can do with them.

This is our last challenge for September so please make sure to get your entries in for all the September challenges by thius coming Saturday at 10:00 pm EST!!

Take a look at what our guest designer, Amy, has whipped up for us:


And now what our design team B has come up with and I do hope it will inspire you:














Love it!  Aren't you just ready to play along???? I hope so. 


Here's how to join in this week's challenge:
  1. Use mostly Close To My Heart products, though it doesn't have to be 100%.
  2. Create your Christmas Project.
  3. Post your project to your blog or other online gallery.
  4. Come back here and directly link to your blog post, not your blog home page. 
  5. Mention Heart 2 Heart somewhere in your blog post indicating that you are playing along with us and link to our site. 
  6. Consider adding the H2H badge to your blog. We'd love to spread the word and see more crafters participating.
  7.  Please consider turning off word verification if you'd like to get comments (you can always enable comment moderation if you're concerned about spam).
  8. Thank you to all our H2H participants and Design Team.  You all help keep our creativity on!
