'Welcome, Spring!' Challenge

Hello, dear friends! I hope you're having a wonderful week. It's Nancy today; I have the honor of hosting the current Frilly and Funkie Challenge.

Our theme this time around is 'Welcome, Spring!' It's fresh, soft breezes and fragrant blossoms have finally arrived. Create any vintage or shabby chic project that welcomes the advent of this glorious season. Think budding trees, birds and nests, butterflies, and beautiful blooms!

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing 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 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 the guidelines, 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 (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.

The Funkie Team joins us today with some seasonal inspiration;

Suzanne Czosek - Suzz's Stamping Spot

Jenny Marples - Pushing The Right Buttons

Zoe Hillman - iGirlZoe


The Frilly Team joins us today with some seasonal inspiration:

Now it's time to turn the challenge over to our most inspiring designers... YOU!! We can't wait to see what you have in store for us. Don't forget to check back tomorrow to see what our latest Guest Designer has created for this challenge, and in one week for the big reveal of the Funkie Team's Spring themed projects.

Thank you so much for joining us at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog! I send wishes for a day of peace, joy, and many crafty endeavors!
