# 81 : Animals

Thanks so much everyone, what a wonderful array of gorgeous floral cards and so many Mothers day greetings as well. Well done. Some entries we could not leave a comment because we had to be a member. And we also got a little snowed under. Sorry if you did not receive a comment at all.

I also would like to say a heartfelt goodbye to Helen who has decided to step down. Helen has been a wonderful design team member with a distinct style and very reliable. Its been a pleasure.
Looking forward to seeing you in our future challenges Helen. Many Blessing from all of us.

I cannot believe that it has been 4 years, but it's true. We had our first official challenge on the 1st of May 2013. I had some bad health news along the way and I had to put things on hold for a while there, and started back up again, this time without sponsors. And the blog has just kept growing. Thanks so much to all our followers. You guys are awesome. So we have to celebrate.
 We have turned 4 this month. 
Happy Birthday to Crafting with Dragonflies. 

To share the love there will be a prize for the top 3 in this Challenge. No matter where you are in the world. I will send it to you. So even more of a reason to join this challenge. Remember the rule that you have to be a follower to enter challenges on this blog.

Another announcement is that we are looking for 2 new members to join our Design Team. 
So this is just a heads up,  Details to follow soon.

So to our new challenge, and it is
Now it could also mean an animal shaped card, but it has to be a card. ( Not insects!!)
