I'm Thankful for Today card


Yes, I am thankful. There are times it is very hard to do anything. It is like life throws one curve ball after another at you. You have to raise your chin on those days and remember all you are thankful for and then the day seems so much better. We all think of Thanksgiving day, family, friends, our home when we are thankful. Then there are jobs, health, hobbies, but what about just being alive to enjoy another day. Another day to spend with family and friends, another day to encourage another soul, another day to say thank you to God for all he has blessed us with, another day to tell someone you love them. We never know when our life may be cut short. We should be thankful for every moment including the hard ones. The hard ones teach us how to be a better person, and to understand others.

DT call for the 12 months of Christmas card Link up challenges.

                            DT Call The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up

The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up has a new home and we are looking for people to become part of its dynamic Design Team.

  1. Do you currently have an active blog?
  2. Do you love to create Christmas and other holiday cards?
  3. Are you comfortable working with digital images, digital sentiments and digital papers?
  4. Do you love to have fun and hang out with like-minded crafters (i.e., people who are easy-going, friendly, caring, open minded, supportive, etc.)?
  5. Do you love to create for the sake of creating and to help inspire others?
  6. Can you take good clean/clear pictures of your work?
  7. Can you meet a deadline?
 If you answered yes to the above questions, then you should keep reading to find out what else you need to do in order to apply for a spot on The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up Design Team.


We’re looking for a group of enthusiastic, dedicated, dependable, team-oriented, designers to join us.  

 Prior Design Team experience not required.


What do you need to do?
First of all, you must have a blog that you keep current. 

Next, send us an email to serve as your DT Application.  It must include the following information:
  1. Your name and blog address.
  2. How you would describe your style (we’re looking for all different styles).
  3. Why you want to work with us and why you think you’d be a good fit with The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.
  4.  Let us know what your experience is working within a design team.  If you don’t have any DT experience, that is okay too!
  5. Please attach three (3) different Christmas cards showcasing your talent (don’t worry, it doesn’t matter how new you are to card making).  These projects can be pre-existing cards.  However, we’d like one (1) of those cards to showcase you using digital papers since you will be using digital papers on all the cards you create as part of this team.  Additionally, all of the cards you choose to share with us need to feature a digital image that you have coloured in yourself since you will be colouring in sponsor's images each month as well.  If you have never used a digital paper before but are willing to do so should you be chosen to work on the team, then you can grab a freebie HERE.  Please note that you can use digital papers the same way you use digital images--you can easily resize the paper and then print it out and cut it out to attach to your card base.  Using digital papers does not mean that we are expecting a digital card.  In fact, all cards that you will make during your tenure on the team will be hand crafted cards that you can mail by post.
  6. Any other relevant information you’d like to share.
What do you get?
We are NOT looking for people who are into design teams just to grab every digi they can; or, for people whose sole mission is to promote themselves.  If that is you, then I’m afraid you just won’t be a good fit with us.  HOWEVER, if you love to have fun, enjoy colouring digital images, are willing to work with digital papers, and want to help inspire your fellow Design Team members along with our readers, then this is the place for you!  And of course, each month you'll have the opportunity to work with sponsor's images and be given some digital papers to work with.  Plus, you might receive some other goodies along the way...you just never know!

Other Details…
  1. Terms are for six months long (with an option to extend if mutually agreeable).  Your first official card and post will be due in January. However, if you have the time and opportunity to make something for December, we'll be showcasing some of those cards over on the original link up.
  2. We will be creating two separate teams—one will design at the start of the challenge and the other team will design during the midway.  On average you will need to create 1 project a month. 
  3. You may be asked to participate in special events, i.e. blog hops, etc. but these will be planned and discussed well in advance.
  4. All group communication and file uploading will take place on a special blog for DT Members so you will need to become comfortable working within the Blogger environment.  It is a private group and only The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up DT members will have access to it. 

So, are you up for the challenge?  

If you are seriously interested in becoming a member of our team AND can meet the obligations outlined above, please send us an email to the_12_moc_linkup {at} outlook {dot} com (or by clicking HERE to bring the address up in your email program).  Please put "12 MoC DT Application" in the subject line.  Please submit your application by November 22nd.  This will allow us time to get everyone set up on the DT blog and also get you set up for the first official challenge on our new blog which starts January 1st.

For more information regarding how the link up began, please check out the Introductions tab at the top of the page.  To find out more details on how the challenges will run, please check out the Challenge Details tab.

If any of you, would like to advertise the DT call for us on your own individual blog by creating a special post and displaying our special DT challenge badge, we would sincerely appreciate the shout out and there might just be a free digital paper up for grabs if you do.  Just make sure that you come back and let us know by leaving a link to your special post in a comment on this one.  You can either grab the one at the top of the page which is 450 px wide or this smaller one that it is 250 px wide:


In closing, both Monica and I would just like to say, thank you so much for your interest in applying for our design team!  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing all of your creations! We can’t wait to see who will be joining us on this new adventure!
