From The Heart

It is Trace here as your host for the second week of a new challenge here at Frilly and Funkie. I am thrilled to be choosing the theme this fortnight which is 'From The Heart'. Your challenge is to create a vintage project that has hearts as the focal image; you could make a dimensional piece, a card, ATC or tag, as long as hearts are the main focus.

The winner will earn a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters will have the chance to win a randomly drawn $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

The guidelines for entering are simple: create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it up below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past when they have entered too many other challenges. If you are entering through a public forum please use keyword F&F. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our design team can leave comments on your blogs.

You've seen the pieces created by the Frilly side of the team (below) so now let's check out how the Funkie side of the team have interpreted the theme. Remember, if you click on the names you'll be taken to the relevant blog posts for more details and photos;
