Most Memorable Gift

Hi! Suzz here. I am back to bring your our final challenge for this year! We will be hosting the challenge for the next two weeks and then we will all be off until the New Year!

December for many of us is a time where we give and receive. That had me thinking about the most memorable gifts I have received over the years. These including a signed book from one of my favorite authors, handwritten notes from my children, a singing hot dog condiment stand and the first gift my husband gave me when we were dating. I want you to be inspired by one of your most memorable gifts. Use that inspiration to create a vintage or shabby chic project. You can make a card, a tag, share a journal entry or any kind of project you desire. Just be sure to mention the memorable gift and how it inspired your creation.

The team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join us as a Guest Designer here at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive Top 3 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.

To add to the inspiration here are some fabulous creations from the Funkie Design Team Members;

Sara Emily - sarascloset

Jenny Marples - Pushing The Right Buttons

Suzanne Czosek - Suzz's Stamping Spot


To get you started here are some beautiful creations from the Frilly Design Team Members;

Kathy Clement - Kathy by Design

Cec Wintonyk - CW Creations

Autumn - SewPaperPaint

I hope this has you remembering wonderful times and places with loved ones. Be inspired and share with us your memories and your art!

This challenge is open through 11:55 Eastern Time on Tuesday, December 19th, 2017 and the Funkie Design Team Members will be back next Wednesday December 13th with more inspiration for you.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!

  4. I have taken quite an abstract take on the "gift" but if you read my post it will make sense as to why my milkman brings me a gift every year which rekindles the spirit of my past, present and future Christmasses! Merry Christmas to you all, such lovely DT work xx
