WOW, what can we say!! 36 Entrants into our Design Team Call.... it did actually make choosing our 2 new members very difficult.
So we decided to pick 4 instead!
We just could not make up our minds! I felt like a Cardinal at the Conclave voting for a new Pope! (Well not really) All that was missing was the Sistine Chapel and a 100 or so Cardinals with some white smoke!! (okay now I am getting carried away!!)
As you know, it was a whole team vote, just like we do for our winners and top 5 each and every week. Everyone gets to say their bit:-) We are more than a team we are a family:-) Therefore picking the right people was extremely important to us. We just didn't pick on your talents alone, we took so many aspects into consideration
So... out of 36 Entrants... Please welcome:
As I am sure you agree, their work is totally outstanding, and they are all, really sweet ladies to boot! WELCOME GIRLS - we are so honoured to have you come and play with us:-)
Now I can understand everyone else is feeling rather disheartened, because we haven't picked you. Please, Please DO NOT beat yourselves up about it, it really was a very hard choice, and we think each and every one of you is talented in your own very special way.
It really was wonderful to see so many new people to blogging and card making, we hope you will continue in the crafting world of blogging, and we look forward to seeing your work evolve as you become more experienced:-) So Please make sure you enter into our Challenge's !!!!
Honestly I think we could have added just about all of you! But alas we could not. Even picking out 4 is making our team up to 22 people!! I really am an old woman who lived in a shoe now! - (She had so many children she didn't know what to do.... hahahaha Well It's a little like that!)
But the fun doesn't stop there....
We have decided to offer 6 Guest Design Team spots to the following:
If you would love to be our Guests, then please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pop you into Debbie D and Louise's very capable hands!
We would like you to be a guest for 1 month each, a total of 4 cards, one each week:-) You will also receive a guest Design Team Badge for your blogs:-)
Well that is it, Thank you all so much for taking part in our Design Team Call, we don't have them very often, so it will be a long time before another one, but please make sure you enter into our challenges - we will be watching!!!!
Lots of Cuddles
Karen, Kylie, Debbie and the girls from Magnolia Down Under Design Team
