MTTC #479 Top 3 Announcement

 #479 Theme of Springtime Insects Top 3 


The MTTC design team members have been trying to rotate turns for selecting and Mags B has narrowed the 23 entries down to these 3 for bragging rights:

 No 3 Chris N. with springtime 

 No 9 Jeni Mc  with butterflies

 No 22 Mandy  C. with birthday

Congrats to Mandy C, Jeni Mc, and Chris N!!! Fantastic entries and we appreciate your support of MTTC!

To the other 20 entries/creative artisans, we thank you for sharing the amazing talents you exhibit in your projects with us at My Time To Craft. 

We hope you all will find time to craft the unique current theme referred to as 'outdoor property markings'. Whatever is on the outside of  a house that helps define or mark the property like a fence, wall, gate, arbor, trellis, gazebo, etc. will work. 

Also our sister blog, MTTCChristmas, has a few days left in its current theme 'bells'-- cowbells, choir handbells, jingle bells, sleigh bells, etc. Can you find time to craft Christmas in the next couple of days?

My Time To Craft is soul-good, folks!!! It's my happy time. 

Hope to see your project entries at MTTC and MTTCC! 

We are thankful for you!

MTTC #480 Theme is Outdoor Property Markings

MTTC #480 Theme of Outdoor Property Markings

such as

Fences, Gates, Walls, Arbors etc.

*Some brainstorming thoughts: springtime gardens, farm scenes like horse corrals or ranch barbed wire fencing, neighbors talking at the fence, hedges or hedgerows grown to show property line, rock or brick or concrete block walls used to protect your garden or yard or property line, arbors, arches, trellises, gazebos, etc.

starts April 22-May 5, 2022

start and end time is same at 6am UK or 12am Central time/Chicago

MTTC's worldwide design team has made quite a creative variety for this theme:

That's right, crafty artisans, if you noticed that these projects for #480 don't have to be spring season looking. What can you work ahead on for a card needed in a few weeks or months? I can imagine sea shore dwellings with moorings and posts for boats. Backyard fencing for pets. Climbing rose or clematis on a trellis leaning against the house. A gazebo decorated for a birthday party. So many amazing possibilities with this theme. We look forward to seeing your submissions.

Participation for #480 starts at 12 am CST/Chicago or 6am UK time on Friday, April 22, 2022 and will end at the same times on Thursday, May 5, 2022.

The Inlinkz tool address will hold 50 entries. It will be monitored during the 13 days of competition and if time still remains a 2nd Inlinkz address will be added. Best wishes. Bragging rights for Top 3 will be selected after the competition period has ended. A separate blog posting will be made, so please check back for that.

If you have time to craft Christmas, our sister blog MTTCC has 1 week left on its bell theme. And the cards can be Kwanza, Hanukkah, or even New Year's Day. We do accept other winter holidays celebrated in December and early January. The MTTCC link is shown in the sidebar of this blog. Hopefully we will see your bell themed projects over there. As of this writing, MTTCC only had 1 entry. We'd love to have more of you supporting this holiday themed blog.

Maria and Helen will be back with projects for #481. 

MTTC Design Team members' projects featured in #480 are;

Meena H., Granmargaret, Mags B, and Becca S
