It's all about Mom

We're back in action and hope you're ready for a new challenge! But before we get to that, a little recap -

This is Lisa and Corina's last challenge with us and we will be so sorry to see them go! But they leave for good reason - to teach at Extravaganza! Congrats ladies - we will miss you!!

New to the team is the talented Haley Dyer and Jody Gustafson - welcome! If you missed their intro, be sure to scroll down and check it out. We are all looking forward to seeing what these new team members create - we know it will be great!

Also new this month is our Guest DT, Joelle Hiller but our April Guest DT isn't gone for good - watch for Shari to join us in a challenge later this month.

And finally, we have two new sponsors - say hello to Angel Shifflett and Sharon Holmes! Here are the prizes these ladies have up for grabs to two lucky participants from the May challenges:

From Angel....be sure to stop by her blog and say hello!!  Angel's Moments

And from Sharon is this great goody package! Visit Sharon at Tucker Lover.

Thanks ladies for sponsoring our challenge blog!

And now it's time for a new challenge. This Sunday is Mother's Day so it's time to create something for Mom. Cause who deserves it more? No one!!  Let's see what the DT created, starting with our Guest DT, Joelle:

Gorgeous! Thanks for joining us this week Joelle!

From our departing gals:



From our new team members:



And the rest of the team:






Melinda isn't with us this week, taking care of family at the present time but she will be back with us next week.

I think that is a pretty awesome display of love for Mom, don't you?? Now it's your turn. Create something for Mom - be sure to use CTMH products in your artwork - and then post to your blog or other online gallery and come back here and link up below so we can see what you created. I will be back later this week with the announcement of April's Top Ten so be sure to check back then - it might just be you!

I linked a Mother's Day workshop I did last month, hopefully that's ok? Anyway, we had a great time making these super cute clipboards and matching corner bookmark cards (both projects I learned from some fabulous teachers at Tresa Black's "Creative University" back in February. :)
