Craft Hoarders Anonymous March Challenge...GO GREEN!

     It's time for another challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous, but before we get to it please make sure to read the following announcement from Gloria (our Chief Hoarder)....

    Dear Friends. It's Gloria here. I am so sorry to tell you that this will be the LAST Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge. After the March Challenge ends, we will NOT be posting more challenges. I started this challenge blog as a way to keep busy while I recovered from an injury. Once I started to feel better, I started to take on more design work, and now I am over-burdened (again). I am still suffering pain and lack of mobility due to the injury, and once again, I need to down-size my crafting work. In an effort to make the best choices for myself, for my family, and for my finances, I have decided to close the Hoarders blog. This has been an amazing 14-month journey! I have the best team of ladies to work with! They are all so very talented. I have gotten to know some of our regular Readers and have discovered new artists. It is very painful for me to have to say good-bye. The blog will remain up on Blogger for a time, to allow people to derive inspiration from the work posted here. But, folks, this is our last challenge. 

Please play along and visit with us one last time! We will pick Favorites for March, as always. Thanks to each of you for your support this past year! It has been a blessing! You are all welcome to visit me at my Scraps of Life Blog, where I may have some surprises up my sleeve starting in April. Happy spring!

Go Green
Use this color board as inspiration for your green challenge. Make a challenge which has green as the predominate color. Use the other colors in this color board as your accent colors. You may make any type or theme of project that you wish. You do NOT have to use all of the colors represented here, but green must be the star of your project! There must be some green in your vast hoard...dig it out!

This is such a happy piece, Christy! I love all the different shades of green and the sweet little circle flowers. They make me think of what dandelion would look like in the Land of Oz! I'm going to miss being on this team with you. You have been such a great voice of encouragement, a true class act, and your innovative art has really inspired me. Let's keep in touch! xo

This is such an amazing mixed media layout Christy! Your work has really inspired me to dabble more in that art form this past year. I am so happy I got to work with you on this great team. I can't wait to see what you do in the future!

I always love seeing your creative genius with mixed media. Always amazing and always inspiring, you never cease to amaze me. I have loved being a part of this amazing experience with you-designing on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. Looking forward to continued inspiration from you.
