January's fantasy focus is: Yeti or Abominable Snowman


November 2024's Overall Winner with a Guest invite for January 2024 was Pauline C!!!

Pauline creates these fanciful, fantastical magic-filled scenes of delight! This is an awesome card! Very dreamy! 

A few words from Pauline: Hi, my name is Pauline. I live in Liverpool in the UK and have been crafting since 2005 though I took a long break between 2013 and 2021. I am now retired so have a lot more time to craft, and love stamping and colouring. I like to try different techniques but am a particular fan of Lavinia stamps to create magical fantasy scenes!

Thanks for accepting the guest invite and for being a supportive participant!


Design Team members for 2024 are: Granmargaret, Claire, Ilonka, Vannessa H (NEW) and Becca!!!

Thanks gals for getting 2024 begun with amazing imaginative creations!


Fantasy content has had a few tweaks: witches and wizards will no longer be allowed; my desire is to highlight fantasy characters and creatures that are teasing, playful, imaginative, magical, and/or have a role of rescuer/protector or vanquishing evil. 



1. There is a page with free clipart images to use for some of the more uncommon fantasy creatures that we don't see normally on the blog. 

2. For January 2024's option focus, there is an Abominable Snowman and a Yeti/Bigfoot clipart images on that page.

3. Bragging rights post for January will be published after the competition ends on January 31 at 12am central time/Chicago.

4. In order to be eligible for the new bragging rights about the month's focus, you will have to create at least 1 Abominable Snowman/Yeti creature project. 

5. In order to be eligible for at-large overall winner or Top 3/Top 5, you have to submit at least 1 fantasy creature project. 

6. Have fun all month at Heart's Quest Fantasy Challenge blog (previously known as TFATU or The Fairy and The Unicorn). We accept more than fairies or unicorns, so think about Cupid, angels, gnomes, mermaids, dragons, centaurs, Pegasus, and others.
