If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick ONE winner from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
It's February and it's all about HEARTS! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, your challenge this February is to create something with a heart.
NOTE: You might have noticed that this post had disappeared for a bit. This challenge is now extended till February 29th to give you extra time to participate. Winners will be announced on March 7th with March Take The Challenge. Sorry if this caused you any inconvenience!
