These sponsors are providing the DT's images and the prizes for the winners!  We really appreciate you both and thank you for your participation!

Finally, as promised, here is our creative and talented designer Marie-Clare's to tell you about the gift she has made for all of you to celebrate our Birthday!


As Ginny hinted last week, we have a special giveaway!  I love making my own sentiments for my cards, and the girls here at the blog asked if I could make you a little treat for the birthday challenge.  Here it is - a birthday wish sentiment suitable for anyone!  We have a version with and without stars, and you can have it for free to use on your challenge cards, or you could always just save it to your digital stash for later.

***AND just because we love you, there will be more free sentiments available for future challenges, so keep your eyes peeled every fortnight!
Marie-Clare


- OR this version -


[Just right click on one or both versions and save to your computer.  
If you use Marie-Clare's sentiments, please give her credit!]

And now we have some very creative examples of our theme for this challenge from the talented Aud Sentiments' Designers.
Stop by next Thursday for
even more inspiration from the Team!

Challenge 103

Welcome to Spring at 
Aud Sentiments!!

I hope you are finding some of our recent changes helpful I thought I would give you a quick run down of what's happening at Aud Sentiments!
As you know, we recently lost two of the three Senior DTs who have put in so many hours of their time and effort to keep our Challenge Blog running smoothly.  Our third Senior DT, Julie, is still here [thank goodness!] and struggling to keep us all on the straight and narrow.  She has asked the two Ginny's [Ginny H. and Ginny G. - that's me] on the team to take over certain functions.  I will be writing the weekly posts for you now.  This explains the slight change in appearance and the mad updates last go around trying to get Mr. Linky in the right place! {OMG - shoot me now!}.
Julie has also made the recent change announcing the winners on Wednesday evening - the night before the new challenge starts every other Thursday.  I really like that change - makes things cleaner and easier to follow and to get to the meat of the posts!

You all are important to a successful Challenge Blog like this one, so please feel free to leave comments about what you like and suggestions you might have!  We are trying to make sure you have the information you need to easily play along - and with that said - let's get crackin'!
