Introducing our new DT members

Good morning all

I'm just delighted to be able to announce out new DT members after our very successful DT call.  

We had so many wonderful ladies apply to be on our DT - and I'm so glad that the decision was not up to me alone.

We had a very democratic DT vote and our new Fab'n'Funky ladies are...





Jan (LTC)

Julieanne (Pinkjools)

Lorraine (Coldwaters 2)

Also just before Christmas we were lucky enough to be joined by the lovely

- who has not had a proper introduction yet

So welcome to all you lovely ladies - we are delighted to have you join us

Thank you to each and every one of you who entered our DT call
 - so many talented ladies did not get chosen this time
I really wish we had a place for you all!

I hope we see you back here on Wednesday when we launch our first challenge of the year
for our NEW teams (hint hint!)

DT call - Fab'n'Funky Challenges

Good morning Fab'n'Funky people

We don't have a challenge for you this week - the Fab'n'Funky DT girls are taking a well deserved break over the holidays and will be back with a whole new year of challenges on 14th January 2015 - can you believe it will be 2015 in just 2 weeks!!

We have had a few of our girls step down in the last few months and we really miss them all, but the spaces they have left are there to be filled by a whole new set of DT members so we are very excited to announce our DT call for our new team in 2015.

So.... What's it all about!

  • Fab'n'Funky Challenges is a very popular weekly challenge going live each Wednesday.  We have been going for over 5 years now and have a good regular entry each week - but we have two teams who post on alternative weeks 
  • So as a DT member at Fab'n'Funky your commitment would be to make a project every other week - though you can join in every week if you would like to.  We take holiday breaks in the busy summer and Christmas periods so you don't need to worry about meeting tight deadlines at these times.
  • We have sponsors and prizes for our challenge winners - the majority of these sponsors provide digis for the team to work with - so you need to be able to colour and work with digi stamps
  • Also you must be prepared to promote our sponsors and their images on your blog -  we have some wonderful sponsors for 2015.
  • We have crafters of all styles and abilities on our team - so you do not need to be an experienced crafter or DT member as there is always someone around to help out on our DT blog on blogger where we chat and keep up to date with our challenges, the most important thing is that you are reliable and join in with our team - so a blogger account is required so that you can join in with us as we are a very democratic bunch!!
  • The other requirement is that you comment every week on your allocated numbers - and it's always nice to visit your fellow teamies!
  • We also have  a Christmas challenge in the last week of every month - in a bid to get everyone organised with a few more Christmas cards for next year - now that can't be a bad thing - I'm sure you're feeling the pain of this years Christmas cards - so a few extras might just come in handy next year!                                         
If you like the sound of this all you need do is link up to Mr Linky below and we'll pop round to visit you - so have the kettle on for when we arrive!!

Please ensure that there is a link to your email on your blog - or alternatively email it to me on the Fab'n'Funky email address shown on the side bar - after all you want to be sure to get that email telling you that you made the team.  

The DT call will run until 10pm GMT 7th January - so you have lots of time to apply, if you have any questions at all just send me an email and ask away!  We will announce the results as quickly as possible and our first challenge of the year will be 14th January

All that remains is for me to thank you all for your support this year and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas - see you all next year

Hugs Judith xx
