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.

What a prize!!!

Yes ladies, here it is...  I'm going to reveal the prize for one of you lucky ladies in the US.  Yes, it does need to be someone in the US and you'll understand once you see it... 

You don't really want to know do you???

It was kindly donated by our very own design team member, Kat, so we need to send a HUGE shout out and thank you to her!

Who would like to know what the prize is?!  You?  Really?

Now...


Yes ladies, you're seeing this correctly!  Kat's donated a BIG SHOT for one of you in the US to win!  So, get those entries in ASAP!

And it looks like we're already over 20 people for entries, so there'll be another prize this month as well!

Come on and get those cards in ladies!

December Challenge - Already!

OK ladies, how's everyone doing with those cards?!  Are you finished for this year?  If not, this is a great chance to get things finished off and if you're done for this year, then there's no time like the present to get started on next year's cards!!!

December Challenge - We're going to make it easy this month because we just want people to play along, so the challenge is...  Anything goes!  Just make sure that they're newly created this month!
Yes, you heard it right - anything! Get out those scraps or the new stash you had to have this year, but never got the chance to use. Just start creating!
Take a look at what our design team has created for you as inspiration!






















*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 December! (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. Thanks

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

Hi Everyone! It's time again to put out a DT Call for January 2012 - June 2012.

We're going to add a few spots to our design team as well as some guest designers.  There, unfortunately, isn't compensation other than all the glory of sharing your cards and inspiring others!  As well, you get a lot of cards made for Christmas the following year!!!

All you have to do is link a card that you've made within the past 6 months. We will close the DT Call on November 30th at midnight. Good Luck!

Cheers,

October Challenge

OK, we all know that there's another "holiday" in October and that's Halloween. So... your Christmas cards this month need to have at least one of what are considered Halloween colours (orange, green, purple, black). We'd also like to see a punch or die cut somewhere on your card and this can mean regular punches, Spellbinders dies, border punches, something that was purchased pre-done, etc!





















***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 October! (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!
