Challenge #19 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 need to address some issues that we are having with some challenge entries. If you haven't already read the challenge rules then let me make it clear we are a CARD challenge blog so we will only accept card entries unless the challenge states otherwise. Also we only allow 2 entries per person to make it  fair to everyone. I will start deleting entries if they do not follow the challenge guidelines. I hope I dont come off sounding cranky but we want this to be a fun and FAIR blog.

Now onto the  challenge. Today we are being sponsored by Paper Makeup Stamps.

Paper Makeup Stamps is a little company started by professional make-up artist Katie Cotton. An endeavor to bring her love of beauty, paper and card making together resulted in a company that prides itself on offering un-mounted deeply etched red rubber stamps that can be ordered the way you like! Paper Makeup Stamps offers various styles of stamps from numerous artists to suit your taste. They also offer a wide array of unique quotes and sentiments in various sizes. Not a rubber girl? Almost all of their images can be purchased in digital format. And just like any great beauty bag, Paper Makeup Stamps carries lots of essentials and accessories to simplify and beautify your card-making! So browse around and do a one stop shop!

The Challenge if you are up to it is: SPRING COLORS. Now your card doesnt have to be a Spring or Easter card, but I want it to have the colors of one. Sounds like a fun challenge doesn't  it. The winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the PMS store, which can be used on digis OR rubber. YAY.

Let's see what the Design Team has up their sleeve.
                                    From Lizzie using Natalie (Digi)

                            From Miss Dee  using Emma (rubber)

                               From Jessica (Me) using Aurora (Digi)

                        From our AWESOME April Guest Designer,
                                       Mariska using Aurora (Digi)

Also don't forget that we are looking for 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 a few more days 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.
