May Challenge ... Teddy Bears

Welcome to our May Challenge

Thank you for all your fabulous cards for April's challenge :-)  The winner as chosen by random.org with this gorgeous card is # 142 Scrappy Girl

Congratulations!  Please email me and I will pass on your details to Lynne at Sentiments 4 You so you can choose your prize.

Before I give you the details for May's challenge I have some news to share.  Sadly due to other committments Liz has decided to step down from the design team.  Liz  has been one of the team since the beginning and we will be sad to see her go.  Pauline has also decided to step down.  Pauline has only been with us a few months but we are still sad to see her go.  So thank you Liz and Pauline for being such lovely members of the team and for all the gorgeous cards you have made for the challenge mwah xxx

Also I have decided to step down from running the challenge.  However, I am pleased to say Lynne has kindly agreed to take over from me :-)  I am not leaving the design team completely just handing over the running to Lynne.

Right moving swiftly on to the challenge details for May.  It's Caroline's turn to set the challenge and this month it's her dad's birthday.  As everyone calls him Ted, Caroline would like to see Teddy Bears on your cards. 
Our sponsor for May is The Stamp Fairy and the prize for one lucky winner chosen at random is a $9 gift certificate.

Here are our cards for your inspiration.
