Design Team Call

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

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

We're going to add a few spots to our design team as well as some guest designers for the July to December term.

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 May 31st US Central Time.

Good Luck everyone.
