Out of the Cold

Hello, it is Cec here and if you are like me you are already tired of Winter you'll want to get Out of the Cold! I am the hostess for the new challenge starting today and that is what I am calling it. I describe it this way:

"It is winter and that means snow and cold in so many places so let's head to the tropics. Create any vintage or shabby chic project that will make us feel warm - think lots of sunshine, bright colours, flora and fauna and even animals hiding in the rain forest."

The team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $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 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. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words Frilly and Funkie Challenge. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

For this challenge and the next two after it, the Design Team is excited to be celebrating all things Wendy Vecchi. We will all be using her fabulous products, new and old, in our creations - you'll be blown away at how versatile they are since we all have different creative styles. When you enter the challenge, you are not required to use Wendy's products in your creation but it would be great if you did. Don't have any yet? Check out her product range at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
