Craft Hoarders Anonymous March Challenge - Go Green

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you this morning, this will be the LAST Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge.  After the March challenge ends, we will not be posting any more challenges.  Gloria started this challenge blog as a way to keep busy while she recovered from an injury.  She began to feel better and began to take on more design work and now is faced with having to downsize again or face more injury.

It has been an amazing 14 months and I have enjoyed seeing all the wonderful projects you all have submitted during this time!  The design team has been such a joy to work/play with and I will truly miss everyone but  will continue to follow their journey as we all go forward.  I am having such a hard time saying goodbye to this team and all of you; this design team was just what I needed when I needed it.

This month the challenge is to Go Green.  Go into  your hoard and pull out all the green papers, ribbons, buttons, etc. and create a project to show your love of all things green!  Think Spring flowers and leaves and let your imagination run wild!  The challenge is open until April 12th. at midnight Pacific Time.  Our favorites will be featured on April 20th.  Please play along and visit with us one last time.

Now here is my card:

Now I've shown you mine, get busy and make something wonderful and show us yours!  I look forward to seeing what you create and I just know you are going to WOW us!

Now in closing, I would like to wish Gloria the best of luck in all she does!  She is such a talented lady I just know she is going to be successful!  I will be watching!

You've been so good with this challenge, Glenda, and I don't doubt you're going to miss it. Such a pretty card you've made with the green, which just happens to be my favorite color. I just love the border down the side and the pretty papers and gorgeous flowers and dyed ribbon.

OH, Glenda! Those flowers combined with that bow are nothing short of magical! I know you don't care for green...but this card is stunning!

Oh my stars! This is just gorgeous! I'm so sorry to hear of Craft Hoarders closing ... and totally understand how much you will miss the team ... what a fabulous group of talented people!!! But I sure hope you'll continue to share your amazing talents with us!! LOVE your flower making and have JUST ordered this seam binding so I can 'make it match' like you do. You are a true inspiration! I'm sad for you but understand Gloria's decision and wish her well.
Happy Day my friend ... Spring is nearly here ... that will certainly help to lift all our spirits!
