From the Heart

The first challenge of the year at There's Magic in the Air - From the Heart. 

We are kicking the year off with a challenge that is "from the heart". We would like you to use an image that has a heart in it and your overall card has to be some kind of thank you card or card of encouragement.

The twist to this challenge is after you have created it you are challenged to send/give it to someone who has touched your life with some type of kindness over these last several weeks or someone that needs some type of encouragement/lifting up.
Oh my gosh, check out this adorable image on Paper Cupcakes titled Know in your Heart - the bunny has the sweetest face and the kindest intentions - to make someone feel loved!  I know exactly who I'm sending this adorable card to within the next few days!
Drop by the Paper Cupcakes store to check out all the adorable digis and then get your card ready and enter the challenge.  You could win 2 digis (and if you use a Paper Cupcakes digi - you get entered into the contest twice).  Hope to see your card in the challenge!

Note:  The challenge at Paper Cupcakes will be going from weekly to bi-weekly  - so, you now have 2 weeks to get your card(s) made and posted on the challenge blog.  (Also, Nina has a Freebie up (shown on my card above) until Wednesday, January 11th, so hop over and grab it, make your card and enter the challenge)!
