Design Team Call!!!

Yes ladies, it's that time again already!  Time to add a few new people to our design team!!  It sure snuck up on us as well!  I think it might partly be the time if year with the crazniess of the end of the school year creeping up.  Hope the weather has been better where you are than here on the southern coast of BC!

We'll all be into Christmas cards in a serious way before you know it here, so if you're interested in helping us out and showcasing your work every month on the blog, just send a e-mail to me (Colleen) at with "Design Team" as the title.  I'll be forwarding these on to Lesley as well!

Include the following in your application...
Full Name
2 Christmas cards of your choice  - new or old!
A direct link to a Christmas card on your blog
A short paragraph about yourself and why you're interested in becoming a CCAYR design team member

The deadline for entries will be June 15th, so that gives you a couple of weeks to get your submission in!  Looking forward to seeing all the amazing creations and welcoming a few new people to the team!

May Challenge!

Welcome to May everyone!  We know lots of you have those cards started because we've seen them and we can't wait to see more.  Everyone is welcome to play whether this is your first month or 15th!

We're doing something a little different this month and the challenge is a sketch challenge.  One of our lovely DT, Audrey, was kind enough to create the sketch for this month and we can't wait to see what everyone does with it!  So, without further ado, the challenge for this month is to design your cards using the following sketch:

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

Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them. You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge) If you do 5 of the same, please show us a picture of them altogether. If the linky isn't working for you for any reason, just post your link in the comments! Thanks!

This month Kat is offering another very generous prize:

Thanks Kat!!!

***Also, if at least 20 people create 5 cards we'll pick a second winner!***
