We are looking for a few new members to join in the fun with us! If you are interested in applying all you have to do is enter this challenge and add DT next to your name. The term will be for 4 months.






Your duties would be...



1. Create a project every other week



2. Comment on entries



3. Vote for winners



4. Be active in our Yahoo group



That's it! If you are interested just put DT next to your challenge entry.



OK, now onto the challenge...






We are so lucky to have Sassy Cheryls as our sponsor this week! She have the most adorable images. If you haven't been to her store you should pop over and take a look.



Here is a little bit about them...



"Hi everyone! Sassy Cheryl here and I’m so happy to be sponsoring the Aud Sentiments challenge this week. I have been creating graphics and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over six years. I started creating digital images about ten ago. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook for those times when a bit of inspiration hits. It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do! It really helps that I have a very supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics!) Through the digis I create, I’ve met so many wonderful, talented ladies. The projects they make using my images makes it all worth it. ‘Can’t wait to see what you will create with my Sassy images. "






The theme for this challenge is ANYTHING GOES!






This is perfect for all you trying out for the team to really show us what you love to make!



We have another fabulous video from Catherine Pooler.



For more information on the products used in this video please visit Catherine's website. Catherine also has an upcoming series of 4 videos and the first 1 can be seen here. Be sure to check it out!

Fantastic DT creations! Thanks for the opportunity to play at your challenge.
♥ Sandi's Creations!
I love playing in challenges, and there are plenty of them around. Themes are important to me, and I'm not a fan of sketches so most likely will pass on challenges that are only sketches. I like variety, which you have.

Sharron aka Sharrahug said...
