DT CALL....DT CALL......DT CALL .....

Did I say we are having a DT Call right here?.... well we are lol.  I have 2 teams on here as most of you know and I want to top up on the numbers.  This challenge blog just asks you to enjoy your creating.  

The challenges run monthly and each team has a theme.  Dependent on which team you are on you will have the chosen theme to work with,  Just one project a month.

We do not have sponsors so you can use anything you like and even create what you like as long as it follows the theme.  

Everyone is required to comment on 2 numbers -  these will be sorted out once in situ.

There is no fixed appointment and if there is a problem when you cannot create it is fine with us as long as you let us know so we can cover for you.

No previous DT experience is necessary and any level of crafter is welcome here - all art is beautiful

I am not a tyrant to work alongside with just ask my girlies.. I love them all and have been paid to sing my praises lol

If you are interested in joining us just leave a link to your blog below

You have until 31st  October to add your name 

There is also a DT call over at my sister blog Altered Eclectics for those who like mixed media, altered art - well anything really as long as it is not cards, atc's etc
