Challenge #48 - Anniversary

Happy 2nd Anniversary to Dies R Us!

Hello Everyone!  
I have SO MUCH exciting news to share with you today!  
As you can see it's the 2nd Anniversary of Dies R Us and we are thrilled to have you joining us.  Our wonderful design team members strive to inspire you challenge after challenge on using all those fabulous die sets available at our Dies R Us Store.  We can't thank you enough for all your support as well as returned inspiration!

In honor of our anniversary celebration we have a Surprise Guest Designer for the month of May!
This talented lady was a part of our very first DT here at the DRU Challenge Blog as well as a member of the DT at the DRU Inspiration Blog. Please extend a welcome back to . . .

AND . . .

We have TWO new members joining the Dies R Us DT.
The newest member of Design Team A is:
I have always enjoyed doing something with my hands so I have always done some sort of crafting, but when I retired I decided that I wanted to focus on hand-made cards. Then I discovered the wonderful world of card making tutorials on You Tube and was hooked. Friends and family enjoy the special cards I make for them so this has become a very rewarding hobby.

Since our second NEW DT MEMBER will be part of Team B, I think I'll keep you in suspense until our 15th of the month challenge. Surprises are always fun!!  LOL

Whew!  So Now . . . onto the challenge.
