Challenge 79 - I love you Mom and DT Call

Welcome to challenge #79 here at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog.

Thank you to everyone that played along with us for our "Happy Birthday" challenge. We had some fantastic entries.

I'm Julie and have taken over running the blog from Courtney, this my first challenge post and has been a bit scary especially with the changes to blogger, so if anything is wrong please let me know so I can correct it.

Our lovely DT Co-Ordinator Courtney who has made our challenge blog what it is today, is saying a final goodbye to us today but she will be announcing the winners of our Happy Birthday challenge later.

Thank you Courtney for trusting me to takeover our  challenge blog, we are all sorry to see you go and want to thank you for all your hard work and wish you all the very best for the future. We are also saying goodbye to Manuela, thank you for your contribution to the team and all the best for the future.

We are now looking for some of you wonderful talented crafters out there to join our friendly design team. Just add DT after your name on your entry or email me directly ( and we will announce our new design team members on our next challenge, don't be shy show us how talented you all are!

Now onto our challenge for this fortnight which is "I love you Mom" in honour of all those Mothers celebrating Mothers Day in the USA. We can't wait to see all your fantastic projects. We are lucky to have 3 sponsors this fortnight.

Prize - 7 digis

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT  for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Prize - 3 digis of winners choice

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality, as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.

Prize - 4 Digis of the winners choice
EyeCandie Creations was created in 2012 to bring kawaii (japanese for cute) style stamps to the world of scrapbooking and card making. We are a family owned business based in Colorado. The day-to-day operations are run by me (Jeremy) and my wonderfuly crafty (not the devious type but the paper crafting type) wife, Candie. I am the artist, while my wife is the brains and inspiration. We are both elementary school teachers. The kids we teach are often the inspiration for my creations. We hope to grow into a company that is loved by all and enjoyed for generations.

So now for some inspiration from our Design Team using the digi images that our wonderful sponsors have donated to us for this challenge.
