May Challenge#35 - First Posting

May, I believe it is a Merry Month:  that is probably because in the Northern end of the globe it heralds Spring whilst here on the other end of the globe, it is the beginning of Autumn. Whatever the weather, this month we are celebrating

A Special Person 

Your Challenge - should you choose to accept it - is to make a paper based


that Celebrates a Special Person in your life!

It may be a Mother's Day project or similar but does not have to be that
It can be for a male or a female

TWIST: to write on your blog WHY that person is special to YOU
It can be a mother or your significant other, or a much loved person in the family or a person who deserves recognition

AND you have until the 30th May to enter the Challenge

Our Sponsor for this challenge is our own 

BETH aka

YAH! Thanks very much Beth
$25 voucher from Blue Edge Crafts

Now, remember, you have to stick to the theme, and NOT USE STAMPS in your project. Please remember that before linking your work. It is always unpleasant having to take down an entry (no, not literally, we are not that unkind!) because they don't read the rules.  

Just a reminder too - winners from April will be posted next week so check back on Monday 12th to see if you are a winner or a DT Favourite!  DT Favourites will be asked to be Guest Designers for our blog some time in the future and Pooja was just that - a past winner! She accepted the challenge to be a Guest Designer and has created a fabulous card for your inspiration:

"I have create a gate-fold card based on with a pop-up inside.I have layered as well as loaded it !!"

Pooja's blog is called Reusingwith Quilling and is well worth a visit!

What has the Design Team come up with this month? You just wait till you see that wonderful work they have created to inspire you! Remember, NO STAMPS were harmed in these pieces of work!
