Hi there!

It feels like January is flying by already, doesn’t it? Spring cleaning is in full effect at my house and sports practices are starting up again. With Christmas and New Year’s behind us, I can’t believe I’m saying it, but we are already looking ahead to February (my son’s birthday month) and Valentine’s Day!  I don’t usually make a huge deal out of Valentine’s Day in our house, but the kids usually get a little treat and a card by the breakfast table.  My husband also gets a card of course (it is also the anniversary of when my husband and I started dating years and years ago!).  So with hearts and love on the brain, I created the sketch for this month’s Third Thursday Challenge.


As always, we will randomly pick one of you who play along to win some goodies from the Crafty Steals warehouse! How do you take part in the challenge?

1. Create a project (card, layout, canvas, etc) based on the sketch above.

2. Photograph and upload your project to this blog post using the LinkyTool at the bottom of the page.  Please note, you DO NOT need a web page or blog, but you do need a photo that can be linked.  This is easy to do – you can use a photo placed in a public Facebook album,  or to a photo uploaded to a photo-sharing site like Flickr or Photobucket (all free).

3. If you have any problems or questions, please email me at blog@craftysteals.com. :)

Be sure the projects are uploaded by midnight on Sunday, January 27th.  We will randomly pick the winner the following day, Monday January 28th.

Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
