Sketch Saturday Design Team Call

Would you like to be a Saturday Girl.... 
...or maybe even a Saturday Boy?

We are looking for some new design team members to join Sketch Saturday! :)
Initially on a 3 month trial, with a view to a permanent position we hope.

What is required:

You MUST have your own personal blog and be prepared to post each week.

You must be able to make a card each week, and upload it before midnight (UK time) on the Friday before the challenge goes live.
You will get the sketches well in advance, so you will have plenty of time to create.
You can use any craft materials you like to make your DT work (except copyright protected images of course),
The only 'rule' is that you stick as close as possible to the sketch, but of course artisitc licence plays a part and is welcomed, you don't have to be 'spot on' but the sketch design needs to be recognised within your work.
You must post about our challenge on your own blog each week, leaving links to SS and to our sponsors on all posts.

You must be prepared to leave comments for challengers, currently 1 challenger in every 10, although you are of course allowed to leave comments for more should you have the time to do so.

You will be expected to take a turn hosting a DT week.
DT weeks are the first Saturday of each month, when it's your turn, we want you to make your own sketch for the challenge, arrange a sponsor, and arrange the guest designer (GD) too. You will be expected to type up the post for this week.
DT week is only for one week, but your GD will be with us for the whole month, so would be expected to make a card for each Saturday in the month that you are DT host. You are responsible for uploading your GD's cards each week before the deadline.
You must also type up the winners post the following week after your DT week, and arrange for your winner to receive their prize from your sponsor.

Sketch Saturday is a challenge blog like any other, and we are happy for our DT to be members of other challenge blog DTs too.
We expect ALL of our DT members to treat SS with the same respect as others.
If you are currently on other DTs then please apply to join us if you want to be a part of our team too, however, if it is going to be a problem for you to make a card for us if you have deadlines and/or rules from other DTs to keep to, then please do not apply if there is a possibilty that SS could be pushed to one side so that you can make your card for another challenge blog instead.
It's only fair to the other SS DT members.
Saying that, real life has a habit of getting in the way sometimes, and if you need time out from all crafting for a while, that's no problem, we will cover your commenting while you take a break.

If you would like to join Sketch Saturday, please email myself (Susie) at
with THREE of what you consider to be your favourite card/projects to date as well as telling us a little bit about you as a crafter. 
Please don't send just photos, we need to see the individual BLOG POSTS
But no more than 3 please.
DO NOT just give us your blog address, we can look through your blogs anyway, we only want specific blog posts please.
Please ensure your email has SSDT in the subject line
 to ensure our application doesn't get lost in spam. 

Deadline for applications is 26th May 2012, if selected you will be notified by 2nd June 2012, as we would like you to make your first DT card/project for challenge #212 - 16th June 2012.
We look forward to receiving your emails! :)
