Welcome to the Hoedown! If you are new to our challenge, please check the left sidebar to see how this all works!
For those of you with your dancing shoes broken in, let's get started! Please read the challenge carefully!
Today's challenge is a tribute to all of the special women (young and old) in our lives. We would love for you to use the Heart Basket and sentiment and create a special project for that special woman in your life. Mother's Day is coming up, and it is a great set for that, but there are many friends, daughters, aunts, daughters-in-law -- LOTS of special women that we come in contact with everyday. Make up something girly for them! FLOWERS (paper, silk, fabric) AND LACE (fabric, paper) ARE A MUST for this challenge!! We will love to see what you create!
Let's take a peek at the beautiful cards the Bacon Bits created this week:
