A little bit of Design Team news

I was doing a bit of blog hopping through the week and finally had the chance to look around I did it Creations, I noticed they were still looking for designers, and cutting file creators and a few more players for their DT!  Well i eagerly emailed in and to my delight invited to be a part of the DT (read here,  I pushed  and shoved... and stumbled my way through the door)

So now I have to sort my way through some links and make sure I send you all on the right direction to participate in challenges!

First of all here is my card, our challenge this week is sponsored by the CRAFTY PAD and we were given this cute little guy to play with!  

Challenge #8 - Christmas in June. Make a project using a Christmas Theme plus colors Red and Green.

I was making this card at my friends house today and I needed ribbon, she pulled out a chocolate wrapper that was a ribbon with a bell attached!  I grabbed it up and placed it on the card!  Amazing how things that may end up as rubbish can be reused in craft!

To enter the challenge you are encouraged to use
an image from the current sponsor but it isn't necessary.
 To be in the weekly drawing for the prize you must use an
image by Crafty Pad.
You may find a freebie on the challenge blog to play with... go and have a look and see!
We all do love freebies!

This week's winner of the random draw will receive

2 images of their choice from this week's sponsor.
Be sure to have your images linked and uploaded by the 
 Closing date and time of
