HQFCB (was TFATU) #3.5 Reminder Notice on 20 March 2024

We at HQFCB/TFATU are hoping your dreams and wishes are coming true! 

It's close to the midway point of the 3rd competition ending on March 31st so DT Granmargaret and I are bringing some more magical inspiration to tantalize your creative mojo! 

Come and join our 'always anything fantasy goes' theme competition. Bragging rights are possible. Starting in 2023, the winner will be offered an invite to be a Guest Designer in the following month's competition. And then there are a minimum of Top 3. If there are 41+ entries, there will be a Top 5 which gives a couple of more crafters a chance at bragging rights. 

In 2024,we're also starting a new monthly fantasy focus option and will have a best pick of those as an additional winner. March's fantasy focus is Leprechaun. There is a separate bragging rights badge possible for this focus so make sure to have at least 1 March focus entry to be considered.

In January 2024, "TFATU" will be renamed since I will be making it part of my Heart's Quest family of challenge blogs. It's new name is "Heart's Quest Fantasy Challenge Blog". 

The blog address will remain the same for 2024. We hope that you will continue to support our unique niche in the paper-crafting/cardmaking blog world.
