New Challenge and New DT

HAPPY FRIDAY AND ROYAL WEDDING DAY TO YOU ALL. I want to  thank you all for stopping by our blog today for the new challenge and we also have our wonderful new Design Team members to announce.

First off I want to say thanks to all that applied to be on the Design Team. I wish we had room for all of you, however  for those of you that did not make it, please be on the lookout for a special invitation next week.

I want to say HOORAY to Dee and Lizzie for staying on for another term here at Card Makin Mamas, and now for the announcement of our NEW Design Team members.

            PLEASE WELCOME




                  and our current Guest Designer,

               Now onto the challenge. Today we are being sponsored by

Meljen's Designs is a lovely stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical digital images inspired by her kids and family. The Meljen's Designs store officially launched on April 1 and is steadily growing! Meljen's Designs has new releases along with a new challenge every Thursday, freebies every Monday and a Guest Designer each month at the Meljen's Designs Blog. Please visit the Meljen's Designs line of stamps at the WHIMSY STAMPS STORE to browse and enjoy Melissa's wonderful images!

The Challenge if you are up to it is: FOR A LOVED ONE. In honor of today's Royal Wedding and the USA Mother's Day next weekend, I felt it very appropriate that we should showcase love and those we love. So please create a CARD for someone you love, it can be a parent, a sibling, a child, a spouse, a friend. So basically anyone that you care for. Should be easy peasy right?

Meljen's Designs will be offering the winner of this challenge their choice of 4 images from these incredible images found HERE.

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