Design Team Call January-June 2013

This post will stay at the top until close of the DT call.  Please scroll down for our current challenge and mid month inspiration posts.

Calling all Christmas card enthusiasts!

It's once again time for another Design Team call.  

We've had a couple of positions become vacant so we are looking to add a few new designers to our design team for the Januay to June 2013 term.

We will also be choosing 6 guest designers to join us for our monthly mid month inspiration.

If you love creating and sharing your Christmas cards and would like to join our fun little group, then all you have to do is link a Christmas card that you've made within the past 6 months.

If you would like to be part of the fun, but don't want to commit to the full six month term, just put GD after your name and we will only consider you for a Guest Designer spot.

The Design Team call will run through until midnight on Nov 20th US Central Time.  A decision will then be made by the end of the month so that the new members and January guest designer have plenty of time to get ready for our first challenge of 2013.  

Good Luck everyone.

To apply simply add the direct link to your favourite Christmas card created in the past six months.
