If you'd like to be considered for our Christmas Card Design Team, please create 2 Christmas cards (No!!!!! Really!!!!!!!!!!!) taking inspiration from the blog header and colors that can be found here- ! Easy as that!

I'll choose 4-6 people and they will be our Design Team for a 6 month term.

There'll only be one card challenge a month(unless we decide to have a special celebration for some reason, but you will NOT be obligated to participate). So, that's 6 cards a TERM to create for the monthly card reveals.

Oh, but if you'd like to be entered into the monthly draws that I will be having, you will have to complete 5, yep 5, cards each month to qualify. If you prefer NOT to enter the monthly contest, then its ONE card a month for 6 months!
