The Heart Desires Challenge 6

Elements:  Color, Creature (manimals included), Sketch

Fall is here and in some places it feels more like winter, so flannel and cocoa and perhaps even a beard are in order.  We hope you're inspired by the pic and sketch and will have loads of fun using the colors, creatures and manimals, or the sketch in your projects.  You have until November 30 to join in.  While you're at it, please tag us on Instagram!  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!


We'll be announcing winners for Challenge 5 next Wednesday so check back!

Now onto the really good stuff.  Michele, one of the honorable mentions from Challenge #3 has done an amazing job interpreting the challenge.  Check out her fantastic colors and layout.  Did you notice the strip is a scarf with fringe? Say what?!  Such attention to detail.  Thanks for playing along with us this month, Michele!  The DT have worked their magic as well.  I love them all!
