Picture Perfect

Welcome to another challenge at Heart 2 Heart! It's Picture Perfect time. 
This week, we are challenging you to think about pictures in your life. These could be pictures of anything - physical pictures of people, items, events, etc. They may be word pictures or other types of pictures. The title of the challenge is Picture Perfect. How you interpret that is up to you. 

Here is some inspiration from our guest designer and our design team. 


Guest Designer Jody G.

























 
You have until, the end of January to enter this or any of the January challenges at Heart 2 Heart.
Be sure to use some Close To My Heart products in your projects.
We can't wait to see what you create!

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

WINTER BLUES

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!

Pun Intended

Welcome to the final challenge of 2017! We decided to go with a fun theme of "Pun Intended" to take advantage of CTMH's December Stamp of the Month as well as this year's Operation Smile fundraiser stamp set. However, these aren't the only ways you can make a punny project.

The design team has come up with some PUN inspiration for you.

















We hope you'll play along with us. This challenge (and our other 2 for December) will run until December 31 so you have plenty of time. Be sure to visit the design team's individual blogs as many of them will have additional instructions and maybe even a bonus project to see.
