Challenge #53 - For those Special Women in Your Life

Welcome to another Sentimental Sunday!

Thanks so much to everyone who played along in our Get Punchy challenge last week. Your entries were absolutely terrific! Be sure to stop back on Tuesday and see who our random winner is and who has been chosen to be in our Top 3! Also, we would like to say a fond farewell to a couple of DT members: Dorcas and Sylvia . It has been a true pleasure to have you two on the team and we wish you the best of luck with all your future endeavors! Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations on this blog :)

Now, on to today's festivities!

Challenge Sponsors:
We have two challenge sponsors this week. Our first sponsor is the talented Deedee Anderson of Deedee's Digis. The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to spend in the Deedee's Digis store.

Our second sponsor is the marvelous Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. This prize will be four INDIVIDUAL sentiment sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection. If you like the weekly freebies offered here, please visit the store to see even more! We also offer custom digital designs at an affordable price with tutorials on how to use them.

This week's challenge is:
Mother's Day/For a Woman

As usual, the design team has been hard at work creating some projects that we hope will inspire you to join the fun.

As we mentioned last week, we have an optional challenge for you to take up as well as chances to grab up two sentiment sets just for joining along!

Our optional challenge is: Craft with a child
All entries receive the Krafty Kids Sentiments for the crafty child and Mother's Day Sentiments for the crafty adult who helped them :)

We'd like to see the kids get creative too, and if they do, you will automatically receive two sentiments: Krafty Kids Sentiments and Mother's Day Sentiments. How do you receive the sentiments? Make sure you enter the child's creation in the SECOND InLinkz collection and make sure you enter in the correct email address. We will email you the sentiments as soon as possible! So gather your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, even a neighbor and get creative together! We find that bonding through art is a precious thing so please take advantage of it :)

We also have some very special guests joining us today!

As always, I had a great time with your challenge. My kid's made a project too so that is linked in the kid's challenge... what a great idea. Although my boys made a project for the other Moms in our lives, spending the time with my kiddos was a wonderful Mother's Day gift too!

Thanks for the challenge,
Cheryl @
