What a Wonderful World




The challenge theme this week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is What a Wonderful World.    Are you all singing the infamous song by Louis Armstrong now?

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
But they're really saying I love you.

I hear baby's cry, and watched them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The design team has come up with great artwork to share.

Tea Time

Hello! It's Alyson here from Create with Alyson and it's Tea Time this week at Heart 2 Heart. Have you ever wanted to just relax with a friend and have a hot cup of tea? It is often the perfect touch to a long, hard day or just to share with friends or family. How about sitting by the fire with a cup of tea, or perhaps just watching TV with the cat or dog cuddled up beside you. A cup of tea often seems to make everything just a little bit better, doesn't it? 

Well, here at Heart 2 Heart, we want you to share your cup of tea with us! Of course you don't have to use the Close To My Heart March stamp of the month, Tea-rrific, to participate in this final March challenge.  It is a great choice, however!

Here is what the design team wishes to share with you. 





















Be sure your project contains at least some Close To My Heart products. If it isn't obvious, list the products in your description. 
You have until the end of March to enter this or any of the March challenges. Make sure you mention Heart 2 Heart in your post. 

Happy Creating!

Background (random) Stamping

Hello and welcome to Monday where we at the Heart 2 Heart design team have another fun challenge for you. This week the challenge is to use a background that you have stamped, this can also be known as random stamping. There are no other requirements other than at least one part of your card needs to have a Close to my Heart product on it. So lets get our fingers all inked up (I mean stamps!) and start creating some awesome backgrounds for some great projects.

To help get you inspired, here is what our wonderful design team has come up with.
