KathyA created this card using My Bunny Pal 
 

As always for this weeks Challenge our sponsors  are The Paper Shelter and they are generously offering a really fabulous prize of $30 to spend in their store.  And we have a brand new Challenge badge and here it is.
 
 

I know that you have heard this before, but this will only be given if you have used one of our products on your card which could be either an Image, Paper or Printable. However, even if you haven't used an item from The Paper Shelter and you are picked as a winner you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice so I'm sure you will agree that its still worth taking part in our Challenges. So many more of you are actually using The Paper Shelter items in your creations so a lot more winners are now winning the whole $30 to spend.  You can enter up to three projects but one of these must carry one of our products please, its only fair you do so. 
Now for the exciting part of my post, but firstly I want to say a sad farewell and wish Marie all the best for the future, she and I have worked together since the launch of The Paper Shelter and its sad that her health has been so difficult for her that she finds she is unable to carry on as Team Leader for the B Team, I do want to wish her all the best for the future and sincerely hope that things improve soon and that she will find that she is able at least to take part in our Challenges sometimes. Now I want to welcome Vannessa as the new B Team Leader and to wish her the very best, I know she will be a brilliant replacement for Marie and the B Team will love having her as their Team Leader.
Now for the A Team and their stunning cards this week, I know you will love them and Im sure you will find lots of inspiration from them for your own cards and projects.
 
 
 
Well didn't I tell you they were stunning well done Team and thank you so much for working your magic on creating these gorgeous cards. Before I forget welcome back Margaret its lovely to see you back again after  your eye operation, do look after yourself we love to see your beautiful cards.
Don't forget if there is a image which the Team have used above on their card which you would like to use for your own, don't forget to click on the "Using" link above each of the cards and it will take you directly to the webpage where you will be able to buy it, they really are fabulous value to.
Please don't forget if you wish to take part in the Challenge that you are allowed to enter 3 projects but please can you make sure that you add one of our products to one of your entries, its only fair isn't it? If you don't unfortunately you will not be eligible for any of the prizes. 
And now its your turn to show us what you can do with the theme this week "Embellishments" and we all look forward to seeing what you decide to do with it.
