Hello and welcome back to another challenge at Aud Sentiments.  

Note: Winners for #146 were posted last night.  You can find the list of winners and top picks HERE

#147 Anything Goes + A Sentiment
and a DT Call

DT Call info:
We are looking to add 2 new members to our team.  We are seeking people who create other projects in addition to cards.  These projects could be tags, scrapbook layouts, altered items, home decor, pocket letters, and anything else you can make that includes some type of sentiment. You should be comfortable using digital images, be able to take good quality photos of your creations and have an active blog. We would love to have you apply even if you have never been on a DT before. If you feel you have what it takes to help inspire others to create, then we would love for you to enter.

How To Enter DT Call:
1. Enter this challenge and put DT after your name
2. Email Ginny with 1 or 2 of your favorite projects that are NOT cards. Please include a short bio about yourself and why you think you would be a great addition to our team.

Now let's get started with our new challenge. 
 We are doing things a little differently this time. Aud Sentiments is sponsoring this challenge.  What that means for you is that the prize will be a gift certificate to the online store of your choice.  How great is that!  You could buy digis from your favorite artist or you could buy other types of supplies to create your projects. 


You may create any type of project you want for this challenge as long as you use a Sentiment.

Challenge 146 Thank You

Happy New Year!  

It's always fun to start a new year with a clean slate.  Did you make any new years resolutions?  Did you get lots of new crafty goodies you can't wait to try out?  

     With this new year Aud Sentiments is making a few minor changes to our challenges.  We will continue to host challenges every two weeks with a sentiment as part of the project.  The DT will now be showcasing all our our projects the first week of the challenge.

 In this new year we hope to broaden our crafty wings and provide sample projects beyond cards.  You will see altered art, scrapbook pages, tags, pocket letters, home decor and much more. Of course we will still be making cards, but with more folds, shapes and variety of techniques used.  We hope you, our challenge participants, join us in stretching beyond your comfort zone and make projects that really show us your crafty side."

Now on to our first challenge of 2016...

Challenge #146
Jan 7-19

#145 Winner and Top 5

Before I announce the winner and top 5, I would like to take this time to share a few changes that will take place in 2016.

Aud Sentiments will continue to host biweekly challenges that include a sentiment.  Starting with Challenge #146 we will just have one post for each of the challenges.  That means that the Aud Sentiments DT will showcase their sample projects all at the same time.  We will also be hosting many Anything Goes challenges throughout the year. The DT will be stepping out of our comfort zones and sharing a wide range of projects from scrapbook layouts, altered art, pocket letters, tags, home decor and of course cards.  We hope that you, our challenge participants, will join us in stretching your crafting wings and try new projects and techniques with us.

The DT will be taking the month of December off for our holidays.  Our next challenge will start Jan7, 2016
We can't wait to craft with you in 2016!

Now on to the winners and top 5 for challenge #145...

Wowsa! Did you ever blow us away with your gorgeous creations!  The DT had a very difficult decision but we did finally pick a winner. 
I would like to take this time to thank our fabulous sponsor, Lacy Sunshine Stamps. They sponsored several of our challenges this year and provided the DT with lots of gorgeous images to create our sample projects.  

The winner of the prize from the sponsor is....
DT comments: Very creative door hanger.  Beautiful colors and design
Toad & Magic
