Welcome New Design Team

The past 4 months have been so exciting. I was so blessed to have such a wonderful design team to help me launch this new challenge blog. Along with a wonderful design team, we had 4 great months of fabulous sponsors and challenges. We even had a blog hop with Paper Jewels which brought in a great traffic of participants. So THANK YOU to all of you that have been following our blog and playing with our challenges.

I would like to take a moment to thank those of you DT members that have chosen to step down from your DT commitment. I would also like to thank those of you that did not make it onto the second term team. Of course this is nothing personal because your all fabulous crafters. As we all know, it's so much fun to be given the opportunity to be on a DT so I wanted to open the doors for new gals to join our DT. BUT with all that being said, THANK YOU SO MUCH from the absolute bottom of my heart. (((Hugs))) to all of you!!!

Please help me welcome our new Design Team.

Design Team Call

Critters Sketch Design Team Call
It's hard for me to believe that just a few short months ago we kicked off the launch of our Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. In the short time we have had 4 great sponsors, a wonderful blog hop, and some OUT OF THIS WORLD design team creations.
As the past four months comes to an end, so does the first design team term. So here we are, this is a design team call for the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. We will be accepting 4-5 new individuals on to our team. The "rules" and what is expected of you is real simple. My objective is to allow you to enjoy enjoy your time on the design team and for this to be a fun, non-stressful commitment.
Your term would run from June 7th-October 4th. Our postings are on Monday so you must be able to upload your creation to your blog by 8am EST on Mondays. This is a bi-weekly 4 month commitment. We have monthly sponsors lined up through the end of the year. Each month the sponsor will give our DT a "gift" to help sponsor their company through our DT creations. There are never any vendor restrictions but you are asked to promote the Critter blog and our monthly sponsor as often as you can. This is a challenge blog so you will be presented with a challenge 2-3 weeks prior to the post date and then be responsible for email your creations to me. You can browse through the blog for ideas.
Applications will be accepted through May 21st. Please email me at for an application and complete list of guidelines. The design team will be announced shortly following May 21st.

This month is the last month for this design teams term. Some of them will be rejoining us and some will be departing. So keep your eyes open for a DT call towards the middle of the month.
So on to the challenge this is a sketch challenge. I would also like to see the color green used somewhere on the card. It's not required but if you have a Dustin image we would love to see them put to use. Our design team has some great examples below using Dustin's images.

Congratulations Sharon, please contact me at to redeem your prize.


A BIG, HUGE, super dooper welcome to our May Guest Designer,
Jodie Heuser
My name is Jodie Heuser and I've been a crafter for over 10 years. My husband and I are Canadian, so when we moved to Florida, I couldn't work at the time so I began scrapbooking and fell in love, but then...
I had to opportunity to open up my own stamp/scrapbook store and was introduced to rubberstamping and instantly fell in love. We've unfortunately had to close the store but my love of rubberstamping has remained.
I'm excited and very honored to have been asked to be a Guest Designer and can't wait to see what amazing projects everyone comes up with.

Here is a little tease of what you'll get to enjoy from Jodie this month.
See you Monday for a new month, a new challenge, and a new guest designer!!!
