Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #147

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown #147. We also want to say a huge thanks to everyone who joined us and played along last week.  It's never easy to choose the Top 3 for the week, and this week that was especially true since there were so many gorgeous Mother's Day submissions.  We do love our Moms, don't we?  We could only get it narrowed down to 5 this week, but that's OK since we had more than 50 entries and we were honoring Moms everywhere.   But we did let Random.org pick the prize winner, which is so much easier.  :-D  Without further ado, here's our prize winner chosen via Random.org:

Congratulations, Lynn! Please e-mail me at  tuesdaythrowdown@gmail.com

Our May Guest Designer

Linda Simpson -- we are so excited to have Linda join us again this week!

May Featured Guest Designer

Hello everyone.  My name is Linda Simpson and I have been crafting (paper) for over 13 years now.  Like a lot of crafters, I started crafting when I was a child, learning to knit and taught myself to cross stitch, embroider, and crochet.  I have been blogging for just over 2 years now and have met so many lovely crafters from all over the world.  I am delighted to be May's guest designer for Tuesday Throwdown.  I hope you enjoy visiting my blog to see my creations for the challenges in May. 


We also have a new DT member this week and we want to welcome and introduce you to 
Gail Scott  

     My name is Gail Scott. I am married to the love of my life, and the Christian leader of our home, Richard Alan.  My first taste of card making was introduced to me by my dear friend Susan in 2011 when she brought her metal embossing plates and stylus to our Patch of Friends sewing group one evening.  I never thought that introduction would lead me to a purchase of a Cricut Machine & a Cuttlebug in July of 2012.

     My blog, http://ilikepaper01.blogspot.com/, which was created at the end of August in 2012, opened up a whole new world for me. I was amazed at all of the opportunities available to enter my cards and projects in various challenges, as well as to see firsthand all the levels of paper-crafting – I am truly amazed.

     These past seven months have been a wonderful adventure for me in the world of crafting.  Not only have I been introduced to various crafting supplies and stretched to learn new techniques, I have met many creative crafters from all over the world.  In addition, I have been blessed by the encouragement I have received from the positive postings to my blog from the many visitors that stop by.  Blogging in the crafting world is a very courteous route to travel.

     I am very blessed and honored to join the Tuesday Throwdown team. Thank you very much for bringing me on board. I am happy to be here.
We're excited to have you, Gail.
