New DT member and a call for some more!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of our DT members, the wonderful Viv, has decided to step down to concentrate on all things pink (only joking).  I'm still really sad that Viv is going, but happy to announce that we have a new member, Kym.  Please take a look at her blog and give her a warm welcome.

I've also decided to expand our team slightly and am putting out a call for 3 new Design Team members.  All members will need to be able to make one card fortnightly for the regular challenge and to comment on the entrants as much as possible.  The fortnightly challenge will be based on a theme (xmas, colour combo, etc.) or a sketch and sometimes we are provided with images from the sponsor to use.

Anyone interested should leave a comment on this post with a link to your entry. Remember we're interested in boys/mens cards. The closing date for entries is midnight Friday 2nd July 2010.  I'll announce the winners on Monday 5th July and the first card will be due Monday 19th July.

So, good luck everyone. I can't wait to see the responses and even if your not entering, please spread the word around. Thanks so much.

This post will stay at the top so scroll down for more recent posts.

    There's not many men's cards on my blog cos I'm quite new to blogging but I hope you'll be able to judge me on this card. I also used sketch challenge 13 to show my capabilities of what I'd be asked to do if I were on the DT.
    Fingers crossed - thanks for the opportunity.

  28. Hi
    Half of the world's population are men, and therefore I have always tried to make the most cards for men. I have also tried to make cards as masculine as possible.
    Here is a link to my card for men:

    My blog is mostly written in Norwegian, but there is no problem to write in English.
    Hope you need my contribution.
