Paper Sundaes Third Design Team Call


Design Team Call Details
With the arrival of Spring, our current design team term has come to an end.  Sadly, a few of our Sundae Girls are moving on to new adventures while others have found the need to take a break and deal with life's challenges.  Therefore we are presented with the opportunity to add three new DT members to our creative mix!

Interested?  Well, here are the details...
- DT members create a card for each Sunday
- DT members are responsible for posting their creations by noon on Saturday (the day before) on our private blog
- DT members are allowed to combine their DT card with other challenges
- Challenge details can be provided a month in advance - allowing you to create your card on your schedule
- DT members must comment on a third of the entries posted (each DT is assigned certain numbers)
- DT term is May 21st to August 28th, 2011

We are looking for someone who wants to have fun!  We are not concerned about number of followers but will be looking at how often you post and the quality of your creations.  You do not have to have previous DT experience but must be willing to commit to commenting!

Benefits:
- Have fun with a crazy group of girls
- Occasional freebies
- Exposure for your blog
- Motivation to make time for yourself weekly

If you are interested, please post about our DT call on your blog and feature three of your favorite creations including at least two cards.  Link your post below.  Alternatively, you can email us using the contact button in the sidebar if you prefer not to post it on your blog.  Our DT call closes Wednesday, May 11th at 11:59pm.
