This is our last challenge for the month of August and our last challenge with sponsor Limelight Paper Crafts. If you have not already, make sure you hop over to their store to take advantage of their fabulous deals!!!

Since we are now headed right in to FALL, I would like your creation this week to be FALL related. That is easy enough, right???

Have fun and make sure you upload your creation with the direct link to the blog post.

Challenge #28 - Stripes/Red

Our sponsor this month limeLight Papercrafts is simply amazing!!! Right now they are having a moving sale so make sure you hop over and check it outWe are also have a 3rd term Design Team call. If you are interested in apply, please see the previous post for details.

Our challenge this week is brought to you from our Design Team member, Moira Coward. Below is a picture of her amazing example of the challenge.

Please use the colour red and striped patterned paper somewhere on your creation. I'd love to see something summer related. If you create a scrapbook page it can be of a trip from this summer or summer's past or an activity that is generally summer related (swimming, camping, etc.) If you create a card or another project it could contain suns, bright colors, etc. The sky is the limit but remember colour red, stripped patterned paper, and summery

Over the past couple months we have had an amazing design team, some fabulous sponsors, and some wonderful guest designers.
So here we are, this is a design team call for the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. We will be accepting 3 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 October 11-January 31 (2011.) 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, and a few going in to 2011. 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 emailing your creations to me. You can browse through the blog for ideas.
Applications will be accepted through September 15th. Please email me at for an application and complete list of guidelines. The design team will be announced shortly following the cut off date. If I receive a large amount of applications, I will close the DT call early if a qualified team is quickly found.
Good Luck and thank you for checking out the DT info. Please email me with any questions you may have.
