The Birds and the Bees

This week brings our final March challenge, and we can't wait to see what you make with the theme "the birds and the bees!"  We are extending this challenge until April 2 to give you almost a week to play.  All of our other March challenges close on the 31st.  (BTW, we are loving your submissions so far!  Keep them coming!)

Our talented guest designer Lilian has this lovely to share with us this week:

Team Pomegranate is up this week (and I am filling in as hostess) with these inspirational projects.



So how are you going to interpret the birds and the bees?  We know you'll keep it G-rated! ;)  You have until 4/2 for this challenge only; the others close on the 31st.  Happy crafting!

Happy spring to our northern hemisphere friends and happy autumn to those of you Down Under!  Are you feeling the change where you are?  We hope that you'll be able to play along with any of our March challenges; they are all open until the end of the month.

This week's theme is monograms, a trend that has been around for a long time and showing no signs of fading.  What will you make?  We can't wait to see!  Our Peacock Design Team has some ideas for you, and we'll get the inspiration started with our very talented Guest Designer, Lilian.




Are you ready to create a monogram project?  We hope so!  All March challenges, including this one, need to be linked up no later than March 31.

We had a great turnout last month here at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!  Thank you to everyone who dropped by and especially to those who left comments and most importantly played along.  The February Perfect Attendance badge goes to the lovely crafters who participated in all four of our February challenges.  Congratulations to...

Now we want to recognize our H2H Darlings, the creations that really caught our eyes and our hearts.

Aren't these projects fabulous?  Our Design Team members have so much fun seeing what you create (although you really make it hard to narrow down to our favorite ten much less our Sweetheart top pick).  Don't forget that all of our challenges are open for the entire month so be sure to join us.

Now we are pleased to announce our H2H February Sweetheart...


Please let our winners know how much you love their projects, either with a comment here or directly on their blogs.  Thanks for joining us and happy crafting with Close To My Heart and H2H!
