Magical Monday - From The Heart

Happy 2012!! We have added 3 new designers to our team so please welcome Danie May, Kathy Bradley and Wilma Zengotita! We welcome back the remaining of our team Audrey E., Gloria Westerman, Ildiko Cseh, Shirley Quarry and Sonia Rivera. Our Guest Designer to help us kick off the new year is Dawn Barrett! Please take the time to visit their personal blogs as well!

We are kicking the year off with a challenge that is "from the heart". We would like you to use an image that has a heart in it and your overall card has to be some kind of thank you card or card of encouragement.

The twist to this challenge is after you have created it you are challenged to send/give it to someone who has touched your life with some type of kindness over these last several weeks or someone that needs some type of encouragement/lifting up.

You do not need to use one of our digital images to play along, but of course we would love to see a Paper Cupcakes image used. Please note: Everyone that uses a Paper Cupcake's image will be entered into the drawing twice to win.

Note: The freebie will only be available for 48 hours.

This freebie has now been moved to my store; you can find it HERE)

You can always pick your own out at the Paper Cupcake's store which you can find HERE.

The prize for this challenge's random drawing for whoever participates and follows this weeks challenge and links their work back here will get to pick two images of their choice from my store Paper Cupcakes.

Now for the oh so talented...

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year! A big welcome to 2012!!

I have been absent from blog land so I could enjoy the full time off and spend time with my family over the holidays with their vacation time and breaks. I truly have enjoyed it too!

I am making a quick posting because I have changed some things up for our challenge blog. The following is what you will need to take note of:

- Our challenge will now post at 6:00PM vs. 6:00AM on Mondays. So if you show up here tomorrow morning and we are not here, come back at 6:00PM.

- Our challenges are going from weekly to bi-weekly. So each challenge will now run for 2 weeks.

- I will still be offering freebies, but instead of it hanging around for a full week it will now post only for 48 hours. So it will post on Monday's and be taken down on Wednesday.

Those are the main changes. I just wanted you to be informed, plus it will help keep tomorrow's posting to the norm . We will be back with you tomorrow at 6:00PM with our challenge to kick off the New Year and there will be a freebie as well!

Here's to a great 2012!
