Design Team Call

Hi all, it's time to add to our Dragonfly family and we are looking for two new Members to join us.

I will be looking at all levels of standards and even if you have never been a Design Team member before this is your chance to shine.We all have to start somewhere.

I have added one of my hand drawn images for you to use on the entry card.
I want to see what you can do with it. Any size, one or more dragonflies,  any colour, CAS or over the top. Being a digi image you can print our as many as you wish and also change his size.
But it must be a card.

Just right click and save. 

Little story to along with the image: you may have noticed that his 'tail' is not completely straight. I did that on purpose, because none of us are perfect and his little kink in the tail made him, yes it's a boy in my mind,  special. Just that little bit different and also easy to recognize . I am not into all the spiritual and new age stories about Dragonflies, I just love them and when I see them they make me happy..... 

Please read our rules on the side bar so you are familiar with them. If you do not agree, please do not enter. We are a G rated blog, so everyone can feel safe.

To be a Design Team Member,  you are required to comment on entries ( you will be given allotted numbers)  and as we are not using sponsors you can use your own stamps and images.

The challenges are every two weeks, and you will always know the theme for the next 4 challenges in advance,  so you can make the entries at your leisure. You are however expected to put your required card into the blog on time. Any competence level will be considered.
You must have an active blog.

The benefits are : you get the opportunity to be part of a great fun team and just have fun. Communication is key. Our blog has been growing steadily and we have the best of followers. 

Just one card with this Dragonfly image required to enter. Looking forward to seeing your entries....
The Design Team call will go for two weeks.
Good luck

Thanks so much everyone, what a wonderful array of gorgeous floral cards and so many Mothers day greetings as well. Well done. Some entries we could not leave a comment because we had to be a member. And we also got a little snowed under. Sorry if you did not receive a comment at all.

Looking forward to seeing you in our future challenges Helen. Many Blessing from all of us.

Thanks so much to all our followers. You guys are awesome. So we have to celebrate.
 We have turned 4 this month. 
Happy Birthday to Crafting with Dragonflies. 

To share the love there will be a prize for the top 3 in this Challenge. No matter where you are in the world. I will send it to you. So even more of a reason to join this challenge. Remember the rule that you have to be a follower to enter challenges on this blog.

Another announcement is that we are looking for 2 new members to join our Design Team.
