DT call

Calling all card makers!
We are looking for 2 new design team members :)

Here's a bit of info about joining SS...

As we are a sketch challenge blog, we don't have freebies to give our DTs,
I don't ever ask for freebies either, I want people to sponsor us and be happy to donate a prize for our winner without thinking they have to give to us too,
so freebies, for us, isn't an issue, although when we are offered them we are extremely grateful of course! :)

Duties would be:

We would require you to make a DT card each week, using the sketch provided.

Your card will need to be ready each Friday before the challenge goes live on the Saturday. If Friday's are busy for you then you can of course upload it earlier. If you are worried about uploading direct to SS then you can upload your pic to our private DT blog where one of us will upload it for you.

I give the Design Team weeks of sketches in advance, so you won't be asked for any last minute cards

We would need you to leave comments each week too, currently 10 comments per 100 entrants, but of course you can comment on more if you wish to, I appreciate that we all lead busy lives so this is why you will be allocated a group of numbers to leave comments for our fab challengers.

You would be required to design a sketch of your own when it's your DT week, currently once a year, although you wouldn't get a DT week until next year as this year is already arranged. Gives you time to see how we do it ;)
When you do have a DT week, I can help you digitise your sketch if you need me to, but the design will be yours and you take the credit.

You would be required to find a sponsor for your DT week, and arrange the prize, email the winner etc.

You would also need to find a Guest Designer for your DT week and for the rest of the month that your DT week falls in. If you are unsure who to ask, I suggest that your GD be someone who actually takes part in our challenges already, as this is a nice way to say thank you.

If you have any questions please ask!

Anyone interested in joining our team please EMAIL ME (Jo) with links to TWO posts from their blog of cards that they consider their best work.

Please do not send just pictures, we want to see the card in it's blog post (hence we want the URL), and please send a maximum of only 2 links, and for only 2 cards (not to a post listing your top 5 or top 10)
It will be a difficult decision anyway, and to keep it fair to everyone who applies i'd like to keep it to two links/cards please. Thank you.

Closing date for entries is 10am (UK time) Friday 21st January.

We will take a look at all the blog links, we will then visit the blogs to see more work by the entrants, and then we will choose the new members as a team.

Thank you xx
