Go Green

Hello everyone and thank you for joining us at H2H!

Our challenge this week  is to Go Green!  Now what does that mean?  Well you could "go green" like a leprechaun since St. Patty's day is next weekend and you could create artwork with a St. Patrick Day's theme.  Or you could "go green" as in repurposing, recycling, or reusing something in your artwork.  Or you could create something that is green.  That is just some of the things that come to my mind.  What comes to yours?

Before I show you what our Design Team has come up with for this challenge, I wanted to remind you  that we have started MARCH MADNESS here on our challenge blog.   This will add some fun  to our challenges for you our readers, subscribers, and crafty peeps.  Now you do have to play to win and follow our usual challenge guidelines.  We have a couple of prizes that are not just for our usual players - we're looking for YOU -- our first time players!  

That's right, our first prize is for a first-time H2H player!  We're looking for someone who joins us for the very first time ever. To be eligible for this prize, you must NOT be a current Close To My Heart consultant, you need to follow the challenge guidelines, AND you must leave a comment in our comment section of that challenge telling us it's your first time participating at H2H challenges.  (One randomly-selected lucky newbie will win!)

We will also have a prize for a CTMH Consultant who participates AND the non-CTMH Consultant who participates the most in March!   Every time you link up, add a number with your name to help us keep track of the number of times you play, starting with your second time in March.  So, my second entry might look like "Melinda#2" in the linky.  If you don't number your entries, we won't be able to count you for the prize.  (In the event of a tie, multiple prizes will be awarded.)

AND to make this even MORE fun, some of our craft Design Team members may be offering prizes on their blogs -- who is doing that you might ask???  Well, you will just have to check out each DT's blog for the details on their project to see who might be offering some blog candy.   You just never know who will be doing a giveaway throughout the month.

So are you ready to see our Design Team members' interpretations of our Go Green Challenge to inspire you to join us in this challenge?  Please don't forget to click on the Design Team member's name under their creation to visit their blog and see additional photos and details and don't forget to leave them some love -- they just LOVE to read your comments:

I think it was tons of fun to MAJORLY use a color that I normally reserve for leaves on flowers, lol! Loving everyone's beautiful paper (and fabric!)creations! :)

I am LOVING the craftiness of the DT. Papercrafts are my favorite, but I' love the inspiration to take my love of crafting one step further!

This week I've forgotten to mark my entry as my second (I played along last week as well.) I've enjoyed this blog for a while but never played along because I don't sell CTMH products. (But I sure do enjoy buying them!)

Thanks for sponsoring the March Madness which was like a personal invitation to join in the fun.
