#160 DT CALL and challenge Anything Goes + A Sentiment

Welcome to challenge #160

We are having a DT call!
We are looking for a few new Design Team members for the new term.
We are happy for non-card makers to apply too.  We are always open to other media because we feel it can add a new element to our challenges.  So if you scrapbook, paint, whatever - why not try out?  It’s all about the creativity [and the sentiment]!   You don't need to have been on a DT before.
v  Do you currently have an active blog?
v  Do you love to create projects?
v  Can you confidently work with digital images and are willing to use images provided by our generous sponsors?
v   Do you love to have fun and hang with like-minded crafters (easy-going, friendly, supportive, etc.?)
v   Do you love to create and help inspire others?
v  Can you take good quality pictures of your work, making sure the lighting is good and it is cropped if necessary?
v  Can you meet a deadline?
v  Can you commit to a project every fortnight and commenting on entries? (Not all of them, as we have a system!)

"Here is what we offer you in return at Aud Sentiments DT"
v  First, a pleasant, enjoyable and supportive team environment.
v  You will get digital images to work with from our lovely sponsors.
v  You get to help pick winners
v  For first time DT members, you will gain experience and exposure.
v  For veteran designers, you will expand your crafting resume and exposure.
v  A chance to learn from a community of your peers

So, how do you apply to be an   AUD SENTIMENTS  Designer?

     *** Please   Email Ginny with photos or links to two of your favourite projects.  Also, tell us why you would like to join our team!!*** 

Couldn't be simpler!

Now on to the challenge

We are hosting another Anything Goes + A Sentiment challenge.
