Crafty Cardmakers has invited us to sponsor one their "Spotlight challenges" this week. What is a spotlight challenge? They will challenge you to look at various ways of using a technique, product or style so it could be looking at making your own flowers and embellishments or using paint on your designs. They are designed to be a little more of a challenge than the norm around blogger as we feel that is the best way to learn and develop your skills is to actually step out of your comfort zones and try new things.
So for this week's Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenges you are to "make your own background/designer paper". Be that the inky way or the digital way, so long as you start with a blank sheet in front of you and make papers of your very own then its a pass! Its so rewarding making your own unique backgrounds and trying something you may have been putting off for a while so come and take the plunge and see what you come up with! Up for grabs 5 Digis to one lucky winner!
With Spring fast approaching that means Mother's Day is just around the corner, so why not get ahead and make a lovely project for those special ladies in your lives. Crafty Creations

Your project does not need to be all green, I just want to see green some place on your project!
Are you ready for this? I mean I have some major inspiration for all of you today. I'm not sure you can handle it......but here you go:
Wow... now how lovely is this? I love how the focus is on the photo and the title...warms my heart!
CHRISTY D. :
Holy Moly...this is awesome right? I mean Kalie should be proud of her image today...look what Christy did with it! I love the embossing on the circle!
Guest DT for March ANDREA:
What a pretty picture for spring. I just love this DP as well. And wow...I have been bragging about Andrea and this "techinque" she has with acetate and lots and lots of glitter on her images!!! Perfect!!!
Well, looky here...a new Easter image from Tracey. Doesn't this just make you want to run out and buy some peep's??? This card is super yummy!!!
So, I'm in awe of this image. I actually asked Dardi what she used to color her image in and she told me she used the computer...what?????? Doesn't this totally look hand colored? It's so light, and flowing and shaded so nicely and done on the computer! I am wowed by that! And look at that border...so pretty with the ribbon going through it.
Guest DT for March HANNAH:
Now that's a moose!!! Her coloring is so great and I just love the circle...really looks like this moose is just hanging out in the middle of a field with a flower!!!
Lil' Miss Audrey is pretty popular today! Look at this great card...I just love the little crocheted flower with buttons in the corner.
See why I said Audrey was popular?? Another adorable card using her! I just love the contrast in the color of the ribbon and that buckle...just love that gold!
I just love to see some of the older images being used. This image is from the Medival collection and what a cute little princess...I just love how she's the total focus of this card! Pretty Pretty!
I'm not even sure what to say besides FANTASTIC!!! I mean really...I love this image and I love how she used a bit of glitter on the tiny fairies (you can see better if you enlarge the image) and that DP...it looks like one layer being torn away and another one is underneath.
Wow...so I think I'm done! Goodness...this was the longest post EVER....doesn't help that it took me 5 hours to get it published! UGH! Dang technology! I hope you all will be joining us over the next two weeks for our challenge and have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!!!
I have a new "Enchantment" image today. I thought it would be nice for Mother's Day.
It's cold and rainy here in Indiana. A perfect day for crafting so I think I'm going to make my niece a birthday card. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
