Before we get to the NEW CHALLENGE, we want to thank all of our wonderful challenge participants for sharing your lovely creations with us - such gorgeous entries and lots of them too:).  We especially want to thank those of you who used an image from MILKCOFFEE SHOP.   It is always great to see people using an image from our shop:)

Please contact us at MilkCoffee and you can grab our winner and top three badges on the right bar of our blog ^^ Congrats!!!

Onto our New Challenge which is SHABBY CHIC and/or VINTAGE!   You should be able to get some great inspiration from the DT creations and don't forget to check out all the great images at MILKCOFFEE SHOP:)

Remember, the challenge runs 2 weeks, so every other Wednesday night/Thursday morning (current challenge ends 8pm EST on May 22 or 8am May 23, 2013 in West Indonesia), depending on what area of the globe you live, there will be a NEW Challenge. You can use any images, stamps, etc. that you like as long as your challenge creation is NEW (no backlinking to previously made work) and follows our theme. You do not have to use images from MILKCOFFEE SHOP, but we'd sure love to see them!

Please only 3 entries per person. If you submit more than 3 entries, the additional entries will not be counted in our winner's draw. We want everyone to have a fair and equal opportunity to win. Thank you!

Remember to visit our MILKCOFFEE BLOG to see all the fabulous creations by our Showcase DT gals!

Our AMAZING DT members have offered some great inspiration today using adorable  images from MILKCOFFEE SHOP, so you are definitely going to want to check those out.   If you have a chance, we're certain all the girls would love a visit to their individual blogs.
We would like to introduce our BRAND NEW DT girls and share their challenge projects with you as well.  Please welcome:

My name is Cristina, I live near Barcelona in Spain. I have 34 years.
I am married for almost seven years, and I have a three year old daughter, is a promising stamper. But for now, she only interested in stamps of monsters.
I am dedicated to give scrapbooking workshops. I am very happy to dedicate my time to what I like.
By profession, I am maitre, but this does not make me very happy.

I know the scrap from five years ago, and since then not a day in which I do not do something, I can not live without this in my life.
For just over a year I have been able to combine two things I love, the Copic markers and scrapbooking. I bought my first Copic markers for 15 years, and if not for the stamps, which I love, would still stored on a shelf.

Michele Squires Spera

Hi everyone
Michele Spera here, 
I have always loved anything craft and art related since I was little, I took every Art class in school that I could get! I have worked at a Scrapbook/Rubber stamp store in the past and that sparked my passion to create cards. I work mainly with Copic Alcohol markers but have used all kinds of coloring techniques:-) I have been into card making for about 4/5 years. 
I have been married to my wonderful Husband, Paul for for going on 32 years....Yes right out of High School I married him and am still madly in love with him:-) We have three sons, 29, 24 & 14. We recently had a house built in Orlando Florida, right near the Magic Kingdom and yes we are Disney Freaks hehe! We still have a home on Long Island, New York and are back and forth between the two for now, but the Florida house is where I am at the moment:-) I look forward to being with everyone here at Milk & Coffee Designs xox

My name is Donna Mosley, I'm 44 and happily married for 21 years to my lovely hubby Wayne. We have two grown up children, Sam & Kyle and also a gorgeous little Grandson. I have always been a crafty person, over the years I have a little dabble in most things. I decided to make a little scrapbook almost 6 years ago when my Grandson was born and then quickly became obsessed with all things papery. I just LOVE it and can't remember what I did with my time before. 

Kalina Pavlova (Kaly)

" My name is Kalina Pavlova and I live in a beautiful city of Varna (Bulgaria) on the Black Sea coast. I’m 36 years old and I have two boys that fill my day with laughter and excitement. My work is extremely unrelated to arts and crafts, but since I was little I couldn't spend my free time with idle hands. So I've tried sewing, embroidering, knitting and making jewelry. It was 3 years ago when I discovered card-making and totally fell in love with it. Every one of my cards usually tells a story covered with lots and lots of flowers and embellishments.I recently started coloring with alcohol markers and it became my new passion."
