Welcome to Magazine Monday! Submissions for Gallery Idol 2009 are pouring in, but before we become completely consumed by “Idol Fever”, let’s pay tribute to our three May Gallery Challenge winners!

These creative gals not only aced our Mother’s Day-themed challenge, but they also scored major brownie points with dear ol’ mom. She just called to tell me she loved them all!

We loved lawn fawn cards clean and graphic chandelier card.

We loved lawn fawn cards' clean and graphic chandelier card.

And we loved Windy Robinsons monochromatic Mom card with a splash of fushcia!

And Windy Robinson's monochromatic card really pops with a splash of fuschia!

And we love momtoggks trendy color combination in her stamped Mothers Day card.

And what mom wouldn't love momtoggk's gorgeous card? The flower/sentiment was hand drawn! For a free download, click on the card image!

Congratulations, ladies! Each of you has won either a one-year subscription or the special issue of your choice. I’ll be contacting you shortly to discuss your prizes.
