One blog post -- for TWO LUSCIOUS CHALLENGES.
First up: Violette, author and artist and a favorite blogger of mine (because she has an incredible Purple Magic Cottage with a giant Dragonfly she made mounted on the front) issued a HOLLYHOCK ART CHALLENGE.

It's not too late to join either the Hollyhock Challenge or the Calendar Challenge! Check out Violette's and Kate Crane's blogs and all of their wonderful creativity.
