October Theme Challenge and DT CALL

Hello! It's the middle of October already - time is flying by. But I thought I'd remind you about our DT Call.


Before we get to our challenge details, you'll have noticed that we are looking to add some new members to our Design Team in 2017. The challenges this month are:

  • Week 1 - Sketch
  • Week 2 - Colours
  • Week 3 - Theme
  • Week 4 - Technique
  • Week 5 - Pick a Previous

If you wish to be considered for the DT, you must take part in AT LEAST THREE of the FIVE challenges this month. Simply add the letters, DT, after your name on your entry submission. Please remember that our challenge is for CARDS only - no tags, bags or gifts.

If you skipped the sketch and colour challenges you MUST do the theme, technique and pick a previous if you want to be considered for the team. Thanks and good luck!

We will contact successful applicants during November. The new DT members will join the team in January 2017 with a revamped 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge.

And now I'll return you to our regular posts.

Hello there,
Are you having fun with this month's challenges so far? Christmas is getting closer and closer so better make your card stash soon!  Hopefully our theme will help you decide what to make. That's right it's theme time! :)

Here's some inspiration from the team:

We're looking forward to seeing what you can do with this theme!  You have until midnight British Summer Time/7:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday 21th October to link your card.  Happy crafting!



  1. It's lovely to see the different designs of your DT - so inspiring! Thank you for posting this challenge. Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  2. The cards of the DT are so lovely - thanks for the inspiration!

  3. What lovely cards! I'm afraid I won't be able to join in this week - it's been hectic so far, with loads of birthday deadlines, and I'll be away now till the weekend, so no opportunity to craft! Looking forward to the new challenge on Saturday, I'll be back with you next week!

  4. The cards are so cute and everyone is so talented.
