DT CALL for JULY-DECEMBER (closes JUNE 10th)
If you'd like to be considered for our Christmas Card Design Team, please create 2 Christmas cards (No!!!!! Really!!!!!!!!!!!) taking inspiration from the blog header and colors! Easy as that!

I'll choose 4-6 people and they will be our Design Team for a 6 month term. (starting in JULY) There are no kits for you to play with, there are no discounts at a store (because I HAVE no store,sorry! hehe!), there are no other obligations other than create a CHRISTMAS card based on the challenge that Tamara or I send you.

There'll only be one card challenge a month(unless we decide to have a special celebration for some reason, but you will NOT be obligated to participate). So, that's 6 cards a TERM to create for the monthly card reveals.

Oh, but if you'd like to be entered into the monthly draws that I will be having, you will have to complete 5, yep 5, cards each month to qualify. If you prefer NOT to enter the monthly contest, then its ONE card a month for 6 months!

Email me your newly created Christmas cards (done especially for this challenge) if you'd like to try for the DT. Please have your card in by JUNE 10th WEDNESDAY and I will announce the new members on JUNE 13th SATURDAY.

April Challenge

To get underway with our new Design Team, I challenged them to make a card using a Photograph or "Recycled" picture from a magazine or an old store bought Christmas card. NO STAMPED IMAGES were allowed :)

Here is an old 'store bought' card I recycled to make up my card for this months challenge

and my NEW card :)

and this is what we all came up with!

Ceal use a beautiful vintage image for her card.
Sandie used some pictures she had saved from magazines.

Diana Used a great winter photo for her card.
Samantha used some neat photos from a holiday gathering and a winter romp out in the snow.

Tenia recycled an old Christmas card.

Leave a comment if you do our challenge!
*Remember, if you do 5 cards this month following this challenge, your name will go in for a draw for a prize at the end of APRIL! (this challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)
