April Showers Bring May Flowers Challenge

We have the perfect challenge for this end of April/start of May week.  But before we get to the details, we'd like to let you know that since this week does at least begin in April, we will be counting it as an April challenge.  This means you can play along with all April challenges until May 5th at 10:00 pm EST to be possibly included in the month's Top Ten.


This week we'd like to see what kind of flowery creations you can come up with.  As always, our DT is ready to get the inspiration flowing!








We hope you'll find some wonderful ideas here - and please share your creations with us!  Don't forget to include CTMH products.  Just get crafty, post your creation on line, and then copy and paste your direct URL into Mr. Linky, below.

As a reminder, here are the updated rules/guidelines for our challenge:

* All links must be to artwork that fits the challenge for the week and contain Close To My Heart products. If it does not include CTMH products, the link will be removed.

* All links must be directly to the specific post with the artwork for the challenge. To do this, compose your post, publish it and then click the title of the post. This should take you to a page that has only that one post on it. This is the page we need a link to - not to your whole blog. If the link sends us to your entire blog, your link will be removed.

* Your blog post MUST mention that you are entering the challenge at H2H and link to our site. If you don't mention H2H in your post, your link may be removed. This is a new rule.

* Please consider turning OFF word verification for your comments as it makes it much more time consuming for our DT members to leave you comments.
