My MTTC #529 Fantasy Theme DT Card project for 8 March 2024

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog!

purpose: this posting share my DT/manager commitment to My Time To Craft challenge blog (MTTC); I've been managing for just over 2 full years now!!! However my design team involvement started long before that! 

when: MTTC #529 releases on March 8, 2024 for 13 days

what: gnome Valentine


1. gnome hug and kiss paper panel = cut from a gift bag purchased on clearance after Valentine's Day; 2 bags were $1 that were marked down to 30 cents; so 15 cents for the bag that this was cut from!!! 

2. script/text and white with dark purple floral print papers = Stampin' Up

3. puffy dots and hearts = Freckled Fawn

4. purple cardstock panel, pink 6" square, and white 6" square = Art Skills/Crafter's Closet

5. black ink pad for paper edging inking = Hero Arts

**this card would also work at Heart's Quest Fantasy challenge blog (previously known as The Fairy and The Unicorn challenge blog and still using its web address) . So to my readers, please keep this blog in mind. :)

other places to share/link are:

a. As You Like It Challenge; new/started March 7; theme is monochrome or colorful and why; COLOR-- the more color the better is generally what my cards reflect; occasionally I'll do a monochrome but it sometimes a struggle to do those; with my favorite colors of pink and purple, this card reflects these both as the major colors


b. Craft Rocket Challenges; new/started March 7; theme is for the girls; this gnome card is mostly feminine creative colors (tones and shades) of pinks and purples; a girl gnome with her pigtails


c. Creative Inspiration Challenges; new/started March 7; theme is anything goes


d. Word Power; new/started March 6; word/phrases with big impact; my recycled gift bag panel has the jumbo XO (for hugs and kisses), script text paper backdrop (SU paper), and also a stamped 'love you always' at the top of the card


e. The Sisterhood of Crafters; still has about 3 days left; theme is dots and/or stripes; on my card's recycled gift bag panel with the gnome, the X has dots and the O has stripes for its main area and micro dots on its inside space
