CHD challenge blog June 2021 monthly challenge starts Tuesday 15 June 2021

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart had to make a card miracle tonight because we unexpectedly became pet parents tonight of "Junior"! A little nine year old dog that is a Dachshund and Poodle mix. This is on a trial basis. For us and him. In 25 years of marriage we've not been pet owners, so we will see how we adjust. 

Meanwhile, Createful Heart Designs or CHD challenge blog is an anything goes non-theme paper-crafting challenge. Find out details and how to 'earn' 1 or more CHD digital images from the link included further in my posting. For the #33 June 15th start date for this month's challenge, I selected Mary's "Floral Hugs" digi. It is versatile to fit many occasions.
