Winners from Challenge 20

Hi everyone. :) Well, another very tough week of choosing from an incredible list of very talented cards....so glad I don't have to do it. :) I just get to tally the votes. LOL

Soooo....there is going to be a bit of change coming our way. For the next month, our design team is submitting a list with their top 5 cards so that we can create a pool of candidates for a few spots on the DT, but those are NOT going to be published. I can assure you that this is a very difficult decision---would ya'll quit making such beautiful cards???? LOL Just kidding. :)

So that means that I won't be publishing the Top 3 cards for the next few weeks, but we will instead have two random winners---one $10 and one $5 gift voucher.

Okay, I can hear all of you yelling at me through the screen....LOL Please don't!!! :) It is hurting my ears. :) I am sorry for the suspenseful month, but I can't see another way to keep it neutral---we want a good sampling of each person's work and participation.

At the end of the month, I will provide the appropriate badges from each week for this month. I am keeping a master list. :)

So please don't send me any hate mail...LOL Just come back next week and play along just because you want to and enjoy our company. :) We certainly love your seriously wonderful cards and great attitudes. :)

Random Winners (using random.org)
$10 gift voucher goes to #16 - Melissa
$5 gift voucher goes to #32 - Kristyn

Open Spots on the Tiddly Inkers Design Team

Tiddly Inks has a few open spots on the Tiddly Inkers design team. If that makes you jump for joy (and I hope it does LOL), then please read this: :)

The Tiddly Inkers are a bunch of very talented and happy ladies and we want a few more just like them. :) To be considered, you must join in the challenges for the next month, be a member of Tiddly Inks PCP group who posts at least twice a week, be able to fulfill the duties, and not be on a huge number of other design teams.

If you think you want to be part of this, then we would love to see your mad crafting skills. :) I will be relying on the Top 3 to 5 picks from the weekly challenges to create a pool of candidates and then the Tiddly Inkers will pick from those and decide who they would like to see join us (I sound like a cult…a cult of cuteness and coloring LOL). This will start on Sept 7 and during the challenges from Sept 7 - Oct 5, you must participate in at least 4 challenges.
As a Tiddly Inker, your duties will be to:
--Post on the Tiddly Inks Paper Craft Planet forum/message board 
--Help inspire other members by posting to our weekly challenges (they are submitted by Monday)
--Visit the weekly challenge entries and comment on them (seeing all the gorgeousness is pretty fun. :D)
--Post a Tiddly card on your personal blog once a week 
--Create one "how-to", "tutorial" or "make and take" for the Tiddly Inks blog every six weeks or so if you can
--Promote Tiddly Inks when and wherever possible (i.e. blog badges, signature lines, etc) 
--Be generally awe-inspiring...:)

So, a good place to start is to join in the challenge next week and say goodbye to summer. I hope we see you for the next month--and beyond!!!
