Fine & Dandy

Welcome to Heart 2 Heart challenges' final January challenge! Our theme this week is Fine & Dandy. There has been some discussion amongst our design team about what exactly Fine & Dandy means or what it entails....what does it mean to you? Our designs should give you and idea of what we all think is Fine & Dandy.

 First up is our Guest Designer Jody Gustafson and she has made these adorable tags and banners and cards. I love them!

December Winners - Addicts, Darlings & Sweeheart

We loved seeing all of your amazing December creations! 
Thanks for sharing with us and being part of our challenges.

This past month we did not have any participants awarded  the H2H Perfect Attendance. December was a very busy month for a lot of crafters, and with the Holidays behind us, hopefully in 2018 we will find more time to participate.

Remember...you can go back to any theme in the current month and still enter a project up to the last day to earn this badge. New H2H Themes announced every Monday and can usually be combined with other challenges...please invite and encourage your friends to participate.  

Let's see how many of you will become a future

OUR DECEMBER SWEETHEART is the amazingly talented...

Hi to All our Crafty Friends.

This is Suzanne from Iluvscrapping2, Hostess for this week's Challenge "Winter Blues".

Maybe you have the Winter Blue as cold and snow sets in, or maybe your Winter Blues are a favorite swimsuit (for our friends in the Southern Hemisphere)! Or maybe it's a gorgeous color scheme! However you interpret this Challenge, we're sure you won't leave us feeling BLUE. 

To get you started here is some inspiration from a few of our Design Team members. My inspiration came from these words of wisdom "Let us Love Winter, for it is the Spring of Genius". Since living in Arizona Winter Blues have not been tough and I can't complain about cold and snow; however, I do miss the spring flowers back East after a long Winter Blues.   

Remember that you have all month to play along with all of our January challenges (with links in the sidebar at right). Be sure to join us to beat the Winter Blues!
