Crafty Ribbons New Challenge Blog and DT Call

Crafty Ribbons is one of the generous sponsors of Digital Delights for which I am privileged to be part of the Challenge DT.  Crafty Ribbons is starting a new challenge blog and have a DT call going.  The new challenge blog will kick-off their first challenge on 1st of September 2011.

If you are interested in becoming part of a new design team, hop over to the challenge blog and check out all the details.

Of course, I am interested of being part of another team, so I am displaying five of my favorite projects here as part of the DT call instructions.

I love learning new things and one of the things I learnt this year is to make drawer boxes.  The first one I made and posted was also highlighted on the Our Daily Bread Designs blog.  The full post is here.

The theme of my blog is passions.  One of the things I am most passionate about is my family.  I like to make cards and projects that are for or about my family.  For example, Edwin, from the Magnolia character suite looks a lot like my youngest son.  In this post, I colored him to look like my Phillip and will be sending the card to his new bride welcoming her to the family.

Another one of my passions is helping others learn something new.  I started making my own flowers using dies and punches and made up a tutorial so that others could try making their own flowers.

Okay, so who can resist a puppy?  This is one of my more CAS oriented cards.  CAS was the only type of card I made before I started blogging and entering challenges.  All the challenges have certainly improved my technique and style.

This next project highlights a number of other passions for me.  First, I was fortunate enough to become part of the Digital Delights family in June.  The first blog hop I participated in was around the time of July 1st which of course is the US celebration of independence.  As an American, I was pleased to make a patriotic looking card with a DD character for the hop.

Applying for a DT position is a little like applying for a job.  It is important to show what you can do without being too egotistical.  I hope I have been able to show a little about my personality and my crafting style.

I am looking forward to the possibility of becoming part of the Crafty Ribbons family.
Thanks for stopping by.
