Welcome to this week's Belli Challenge! Before we begin with our BELLI CHALLENGE, we would like to take a moment and THANK EVERYONE for submitting projects for the BELLI DESIGN TEAM CALL!

We are SO excited to announce the addition to our Design Team! Please help us welcome our NEW Design Team Members!

Jenny Gropp - she actually started a few weeks earlier after being a Guest Designer
Maria Matter
Joy Hadden
Liz Williams

Now... The challenge for this week is to make a project using HEARTS.

What is the Belli Challenge you ask? Each week, we try to give you a challenge that will use things we have lying around your stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter!

Here is what you need to do...
1. Anyone can play! Spread the word! :)
2. Make a completed project with any type of HEARTS - You can use chipboard, gems, brads, stamps, stickers... Pretty much anything you have lying around that is in the shape of a HEART!
3. Share the link here in the comments linking to Mr. Linky - CBC83. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your blog, be sure and put CBC83 as the KEYWORD and mention the challenge - with a link!

This week, we are pleased to introduce you to our Guest Designer! Her name is Christine Nay!

Here is a little information about Christine...

I live in Boise, Idaho, with my doggie, Chloe, and my cat, Tuxie. I love all types of crafting but now my favorite is cards. My style is quite eclectic from romantic, shabby chic to cute and simple. I primarily color with water color paints so I love scenery type images.

I started making cards while I was away from home Christmas 2007 and wanted to do something special for my friends and family. I made a few cards here and there until I started blogging and saw all the beautiful inspiration in blogland and the rest his history. I now love playing with my paper and I am completely hooked.

I love butterflies, lavender (actually, herbs in general), cupcakes, hearts, chocolate, and my garden (not necessarily in that order; it depends on the day), oh, and how could I forget, cookies. I am very thankful for the generosity that a grieving family showed to me by letting me have their beautiful daughter's heart. It's the ultimate gift and I could never be grateful enough.

Now without further adieu here are everyone's HEART projects!
