It is with a heavy heart that due to personal reasons Tonya, the owner of The Heart Desires, has decided to shutter the challenge and blog for the next few months effective immediately.  Tonya will keep us apprised as she's able. The DT has enjoyed providing inspiration to you and we all wish Tonya the very very best.

But, let's end this post with happier news by announcing the winners and honorable mentions of Challenge #17.

The winner is #24 Cris G. Congrats!

The honorable mentions wowed us too. Congratulations in order of entry to #8 Lea L, #11 Dana Kirby, #14 Christina Luna, and #17 Karin Akesdotter!

Thanks to each and every one of our players. You have made this experience so fun and inspiring.  Hopefully we'll be back stronger and better than ever!

Special Guest Dana Kirby

Hi THD fans!  Today we have another amazing guest designer joining us on the blog.  Ms. Dana Kirby!  She was the winner of Challenge 15! and she has some holiday inspiration to share.

This first card features Lawn Fawn's Pumpkin Spice Latte set as well as some Echo Park holiday paper.  It is so fun, in love with the colors and layout. The scalloped edge is so sweet. 

She also created this fun card and gift card holder!  The embossing folder is Echo Park and the stamp set is Lawn Fawn Love you a Latte.  The black is just so bold for a holiday set but it works so well!  Perfectly cute Dana and thank you for joining us with these amazing creations!

You can find more of her fun creations on Instagram here,

Thanks for you visit!

For You

Seriously, what's not to love about squirrels and acorns?!  Hey, this is Amy here with you today sharing a fall inspired project.

I've been wanting to ink up the Neat & Tangled - My Favorite Nut stamp set.  I combined it with the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags stamps.

That little baggie is from my stash.  I was digging around and found it all by its lonesome and thought it matched wonderfully with my color palette.

Don't forget about the current challenge, there's still time to join in the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome week!
