Merry Christmas - and a DT call at 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 8th January 2014 - can you believe it will be 2014 in just 2 weeks!!

We have had a few of our girls step down in the last few months, most recently Rachel and Jackie 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 and so we are very excited to announce our DT call for 3 or 4 new members for 2014.

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

  • Fab'n'Funky Challenges is a very popular weekly challenge going live each Wednesday- 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 deadlines at these times.
  • We have sponsors every week 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 2014.
  • 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 - 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 on your allocation each week - and it's always nice to visit your fellow teamies!
  • Oh and just one other thing! - as an added twist this year we are introducing 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 -                                                       so it's Fab'n'Funky Challenges - with an added twist of Christmas!!

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 6pm GMT 17th January - so you have lots of time to apply, if you have any questions at all just send me an email and ask away!

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

beaded trees

her beaded Christmas Trees Diorama project is so lovely and would make a gorgeous centre piece for a Christmas party table she has included a tutorial on how to make the trees on her blog and instructions on how she put the whole thing together.

I just fell in love with the cool frosty feel to this card and the fact that the whole thing had a subtle sparkle to it.
Congratulations Dr Sonia  and please e-mail Judith for your prize the address is in our side bar and be sure to take your winners badge.

The top three are 

I thought this was such a clever design with the pretty background paper blending into the snowy scene and the pearl trim becoming part of the  foreground.

I loved the fact that background was hand made on this one and the way the post mark image overlaps onto the focal point image.

Congratulations to you all and please take your top three badge from the side bar.

Once again thank you to everyone who entered and I hope to see you joining in with our new challenge in the morning.
