Wait it gets better…….We also have some really great companies sponsoring our weekly challenges. You will be entering for a chance to win a prize from them each week. The winner of these will be announced on the Thursday after each challenge ends.

Without further ado, here are this week’s sponsors:  1st off we have Lisa Tedder from Twosdays Techniques. 

Lisa was looking online for a website that had videos on the harder techniques.  You know how some techniques you just HAVE to see to really get how to do them?  She couldn’t find any!  So, she decided to start her own!  She asked her good friend Pattie if she would join her in this endeavor and the two of them started Twosday’s Techniques!  Each Tuesday they both submit a technique video, so we named the site Twosday’s Techniques (Two Videos on Tuesday!  Hehe……too cutesy?)
We use our own designs for all the creations and haveeven come up with our own Techniques quite a few times!   We keep the cost low so it won’t be a hardship for those of you on a budget.
Come check us out at:  http://twosdaystechniques.com/     You must register, but don’t have to pay to see what we have to offer.  Lisa has two videos that are free, under the heading ‘Links of Interest’ click on the Sample Techniques button!!
Remember to win the 6 month membership to Twosdays Techniques; you have to enter all 5 of the challenges for the month of March.  Here is Lisa's Swing Card!

Our next sponsor is Jenn Camargo with Dancing Princesses Designs.

My name is Jenn Camargo and I'm a SAHM of 7 kids...6 girls ages 18-3 and a surprise baby boy age 4 months.  I've been scrapbooking/card making for 18 years, and started digital designing three years ago.  I LOVE my work...it's my creative outlet. I am thrilled to be sponsoring this challenge and loving all the fantastic works of art on the site!

Jenn with Dancing Princesses Designs will be giving away a:

 Also, she will be giving away a $2 gift certificate if you make our VIP TOP 3…..Wow thanks Jenn!!!
