A Harvest of Gratitude Challenge

Hello, Friends! It's Kathy here to welcome you to the current challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog. November has arrived, and we find ourselves settling in for the winter months and all its wonderful festivities. Here in the US, we are getting ready to celebrate our Thanksgiving Holiday, which is my favorite holiday of the year. What could be better than a day set aside to give thanks for this good life with friends, family and food? This is the inspiration for the Harvest of Gratitude Challenge that I am honored to host this fortnight. Here's the scoop:

Challenge Theme: A Harvest of Gratitude

There is always something to be thankful for.  In this gratitude themed challenge, we are asking you to create a vintage or shabby chic project that portrays something that fills your heart with thanksgiving.  Use harvest colors and be sure to tell us how your project reflects your thankful heart.

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And there are Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team, because choosing just one winner is so hard!

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.

This week the Funkie side of the Design Team share their own projects to inspire you further;
