Hope everyone is enjoying spring like temperatures where you live.  I know I am really tired of winter and looking forward to warm weather!  Tomorrow we will start a new challenge and we are making some changes.  For the past couple years, I have paid for the prizes and the postage for the challenges and with the increase of postage it is getting way too expensive and I have not been able to include other countries to win.  That will all change with this new challenge.  We will be picking a Top 3 entries and I will still let random.org do it and you will receive a button which I had my designer make up.  I am excited that now more people can join in and be acknowledged for their wonderful work.  I am posting the challenge rules on the side bar for you if there is any questions.  I can't wait to see what you will share with us and our DT has great inspiration for you.
