COMMENTING...

If you see that you are not getting comments from us, it is because of the silly "PROVE THAT YOU ARE NOT A ROBOT" on Blogger. There are only certain number of times you can comment and then you have to start proving you're not a robot. Really irritating when you have to click through picture after picture to try and leave a comment to our beautiful entries. So sorry about this. We wish Blogger would change this.

DT CALL for Jan-June

DT CALL for JAN-JUNE (closes DEC 15th)
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! Like the new look!!! Easy as that!

I'll choose 4-6 people and they will be our Design Team for a 6 month term. (starting in JAN) 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, you CAN post them on your blog and combine them with other challenges.Please mention our blog, if you do this.Thanks!!!) if you'd like to try for the DT. Please have your card in by Dec 15th TUESDAY and I will announce the new members on DEC 18th FRIDAY.

November Challenge

Oh wow! Can you believe it, November already!!! We have got some great cards created this year, haven't we!!!

Well, this month's challenge was certainly a challenge for some of us who are used to creating multi-layered cards!!! Oh boy!!! But we did it and we did an awesome job, I think!!!


The challenge this month is to create a ONE LAYER card using only brads, buttons, lace or ribbon as embellishments.

EDITED TO ADD:I forgot to add that I allowed the DT
to use one layer of patterned paper on TOP
of their cardstock base, if they wanted to.

You can do this as well, if it makes things easier :O)


Here are the design Team cards. You will be inspired, I am sure!!!
