Challenge #18 and DT CALL

Hey ladies, I want to thank all of you for stopping by on this fabulous Friday. We have a fun challenge lined up for you today but first I want to let you know that the Winner and Top 3 of our "ANIMAL" challenge will be announced on Monday, the 4th. Good luck to the wonderful ladies who entered.

Well here we are, all ready for another fun challenge. We are being sponsored today by Wink Wink Ink, a great little digi company.

*Wink *Wink Ink is a digital stamp company that specializes in cute images of children, animals, and other fun creatures. In addition to the well drawn detailed style of our images, the thing that really sets *Wink *Wink Ink apart is the pre-colored images that are included with every stamp you buy!  These are great for doing quick projects when you don't have time to color or for use as a guide for coloring your own.  You get a colored jpg, a black and white jpg, and a transparent png file of each image for one low price. You can also get free sentiments to go with some of our images at our brand new store!

The Challenge if you are up to it is: EMBELLISH IT!
That's right get out those buttons, ribbon, bling, flowers and charms. We want to see all kinds of embellies on your cards. The random winner will get $15 to spend at the Wink Wink Ink store, what a great prize. We will also pick our top 3 to get a special badge for their blog.

Let's see what the Design Team has up their sleeve.

                        From Cassandra using "Wooly Bear Caterpillar"

                                      From Lizzie using "Mini Messages"

                             From Miss Dee  using "Chickadee Border"

                               From Jessica (Me) using "In a Jam" 
                                and coordinating freebie sentiment

And now we are pleased to announce the April Guest Designer, Mariska. We are so pleased to have her joining us this month. We think her creativity is amazing and I hope that you agree. Please visit her blog and let her know how awesomely talented she is.

                         Here is Mariska's card using "Farm Friends"

**OK So here is the sad news for us but potentially good news for some of you. Today is founding Card Makin Mama, Cassandra's LAST day with us here. Sniffle Sniffle.  I can't tell you how very sad this makes me. I have been through quite the creative journey with her and I can honestly say that I wouldnt be where I am without her.

Now we are left with the daunting task of trying to fill the DT void left by Miss Cass. We have decided that  we are wanting not one, but TWO new DT members to join us here at Card Makin Mamas. So if you are interested in joining us as a Design Team Member please e-mail me HERE. In the email please tell me a little about yourself and your card making journey, why you want to be on our team, and attach the 3 cards that you feel best show off your talents.

We will be accepting DT submissions through the end of the day April 17th. That gives you just over 2 weeks to get your applications in. The 2 chosen DT members will begin on April 29th. **

Alright ladies, you have the next 2 weeks to dazzle us. Good luck and be sure to snag our badge from the side bar to help support our challenge blog. Its your help and support that will make this blog into something great.

Also, if you want to be considered for our MAY GUEST DESIGNER please put GDT after your name in the linky.
