# 83: Sentiment Main Focus - Intro for our two new DT Member

G'Day to you all. I am thrilled to introduce you to our two new Design Team Members.
Please make sure you visit their blogs and say hello.
Here they are:

Introducing Karen from : Busyinspirations
I'm a single mom of three, ages 27, 23 and 17 and I also have a 3 yr old grandson and an 8 yr old granDOGter.  I have designed for many different artists and challenge blogs.  Some of the artists and blogs I’ve designed for are Rick St. Dennis, Fred She Said, Skipping Stones Designs, Stitchy Bear, Sassy Studio Designs, Wags n’ Whiskers, Through The Craft Room Door, Cre8tive Hands, Whoopsi Daisy, Digital Delights and Create With TLC.  The teams I am currently with are Incy Wincy Designs and Cute As A Button.  I am looking forward to sharing my inspiration with you and am also looking forward you seeing how you can inspire me!

Here is Mimi from Paper Craft Happy
My name is Mimi. I enjoy making things with paper and meeting people who are passionate about their crafts. It's fun to see the new products that come out and also learning new techniques. There's always something new to learn with paper crafting!  Here's a quote I would like to share: 
"If you hear a voice within you say, 'You cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." - Vincent Van Gogh

Now onto our new Card Challenge which is : 
Sentiment your Main Focus

And here they are, some awesome cards from the DT to get you inspired:

# 81 : Animals

Thanks so much everyone, what a wonderful array of gorgeous floral cards and so many Mothers day greetings as well. Well done. Some entries we could not leave a comment because we had to be a member. And we also got a little snowed under. Sorry if you did not receive a comment at all.

I also would like to say a heartfelt goodbye to Helen who has decided to step down. Helen has been a wonderful design team member with a distinct style and very reliable. Its been a pleasure.
Looking forward to seeing you in our future challenges Helen. Many Blessing from all of us.

I cannot believe that it has been 4 years, but it's true. We had our first official challenge on the 1st of May 2013. I had some bad health news along the way and I had to put things on hold for a while there, and started back up again, this time without sponsors. And the blog has just kept growing. Thanks so much to all our followers. You guys are awesome. So we have to celebrate.
 We have turned 4 this month. 
Happy Birthday to Crafting with Dragonflies. 

To share the love there will be a prize for the top 3 in this Challenge. No matter where you are in the world. I will send it to you. So even more of a reason to join this challenge. Remember the rule that you have to be a follower to enter challenges on this blog.

Another announcement is that we are looking for 2 new members to join our Design Team. 
So this is just a heads up,  Details to follow soon.

So to our new challenge, and it is
Now it could also mean an animal shaped card, but it has to be a card. ( Not insects!!)
