September Challenge and DT Call!!

Welcome to Septembers challenge and our Design Team call!
Thank you for all the amazing entries last month and thank you for the lovely comments some of you left for the DT!
I want to apologise again for not getting round to commenting on everyone's entry. With our lack of DT members at the moment and some of us still going on holiday we just have not had the time to get round to you all. We all really appreciate your support and we will get back to normal as soon as we can!
As you can see if you have been here before we have had a little makeover. I am afraid i have a bit of a addiction to all these gorgeous backgrounds and headers that are going about. Hope you like it!!
Now its time for Random.org to pick the winner of out last Hot Colour challenge!
The winner is................Shelby (Color of Happy)

Wow...check out that colouring...Just fantastic and you certainly cant get any hotter than this!! Congrats Shelby! If you send me a quick email i will sort out your prize of $20 to spend at The Beary Scrap!

Thank you very much to The Beary Scrap for your sponsorship!

Now onto the new challenge! Since we are in September and its known as the month of Hibernation we thought we would challenge you to....
Let Sleeping Bears Lie!!
We want to see all those bears out there... Your bear does not have to be sleeping but would be good to see how many sleepy bears we get!
This month we have the fantastic "Crafty Sentiments" sponsoring us.
Crafty Sentiments Designs Website
The prize is 4 gorgeous Digital images of your choice!! If you have not been to the Crafty Sentiments store then pop by and have a look at the new stamps available right now!

We are now looking for a few new design team members to join us here at Crafty Calendar.
I have put the details here on the "DT Call Information" page.
If you are interested in joining our little family here at Crafty Calendar then just check out the info page and create a project for this challenge and put "DT" after your name when linking up. I will then get in touch with you. The closing date will be the 17th September.

Now here is some inspiration to get your mojo going!
The design team were given Crafty Sentiments! images to play with, they are just adorable!

Here are a few little reminders ...
Please make sure you leave a link to your blog post and not just your blog and that 'Crafty Calendar Challenge' is linked in your post. Please only link to new entries as it isn't fair to backlink to older posts. Any cards linked not meeting the above requirements will be removed and you will not be eligible for any of the fantastic prizes offered by our sponsors!

We have just one change this month. We have decided to limit the number of times you can
enter to 3. Each entry must be a completely different creation/card.

This challenge will close on Friday 30th September at 8 pm and the winner will be announced the following day when the new challenge is posted.
Now its over to you.....lets see what you come up with this week!!
