Looking for new DT members

Good Morning crafters.

This is just a short post to let you all know that I am looking for some new talent to join the Penny Black at Allsorts Design Team. You will be seeing one or two new faces join us in September and I am hoping we can add a couple more in the coming weeks, so if you are a Penny Black groupie and would like to join our exclusive friendly little team, please read on.

I am not holding a full blown DT call, instead I would like anyone interested in being considered, to add PB after their name when they enter their work to Mr Linky in the August Glitter and Glitz Challenge below. Also mention in the post on your own blog that we are looking for new DT members. If you have already entered prior to this post, then please just add a note to the comment section of this months challenge post and tell me the number of your entry as shown on Mr Linky and amend you blog post accordingly.

Your artwork does not have to be a card, it can be a l/o or any form of craft you enjoy, so long at there is a Penny Black stamp as one of the main elements.

If you are one of the lucky peeps invited to join the DT you will be required to provide one piece of artwork each month in line with the months theme and of course use a Penny Black stamp. You will also be expected to comment on all entries to the challenge each month and promote the challenge on your own blogs. Please do not ask to be considered if you feel unable to commit to these basic requirements.

If you are interested in being considered for the team and can work within the guidelines above, all you have to do is enter your work with Mr Linky so I can come take a look, plus there is the added bonus of the chance to win one of this months prizes.
