Challenge 83 - Inspiration and a sneaky peek of new DT!


Click here to enter the current challenge.


Welcome to the second week of our Summer challenge.  Just a reminder you can create any project or card - just make sure you include a summer sentiment!

Also a little "heads up" that we have slightly changed our rules - because we have had SOOOOOO many wonderful entries, we have taken the decision to limit entries to a maximum of 5 per person.  It gets too tough to decide between you all otherwise!


Here are the gorgeous creations of Team B...

Click here to enter the current challenge and also find out more information about the DT call!....PSSSST, we have had huge numbers of entries for the challenge but not so many for the DT call - so why not have a go?


Welcome to the second week of our Anything Goes challenge.  Just a reminder this is a DT CALL and Anything Goes challenge!

A while ago we asked for YOUR suggestions for how we could improve things on here...among those were having Guest DTs, having more anything goes type challenges, numbering the challenges and having a Top 5 - well these are all happening now - winners of challenges will be asked if they would like to Guest DT (you don't have to!) - so thanks for the good ideas!



Here is some gorgeous inspiration for you....

For this challenge we are so excited to have Beccy's Place as our sponsor.
 Thanks so much!


Here is a little bit about her...

"I love spending time in my craft room designing and creating with paper, fabric, flowers, ribbons, paint... anything I can get my hands on really. I have tried many different arts and crafts and have a particular passion for papercrafts, decorative painting and ribbon embroidery. I love to share ideas and "how to's" with other keen crafters,"  Its well worth a little click over to Beccy's blog, she has some great tutorials as well as her gorgeous images.



We are so excited because its time for another DT call.  So, if you can commit to a 6 month position and are confident to work with digital images read on...

We are looking for new Design Team members to replace are outgoing DT members.
You will need to commit to producing a card or project every other week.  We have wonderful sponsors who often give images to the DT members to use, as well as the awesome prizes they offer.
We communicate via a closed Yahoo group.  We are very informal!  This is not a heavy going team!
You must commit to commenting on entries to the challenges, but this is not onerous as we have a rota for commenting - so you don't need to comment on every single entry!
We are just as happy to have people who have never been on a design team as those who are established DT members - its the talent and creativity that matters - but you must obviously have an online presence (active blog, facebook page etc etc).  


So, how do you apply?  Just enter our current challenge and add the letters DT behind your name!  Couldn't be simpler!

Oh, actually it could be simpler...if we made the theme of this challenge ANYTHING GOES (don't forget you MUST have a sentiment on your entry)!!!  Now that IS simple!

Obviously, if you are not applying for DT positions then just enter as usual!
