CDAC Progressive Challenge DT


At long last I can share some really, REALLY exciting news. I am on the Design Team for the Progressive Challenge over at the CDAC! (please imagine me running round like a child with sheer excitement at this point LOL)

Priscilla Styles asked me some time ago if I would be interested in getting involved in a new venture as I was so totally chuffed to have been asked. I mean OMG, of course I would love to be a part of this. Since I discovered the CDAC late last year I have had the good fortune to work with so many fabulous images from a variety of designers, have been a featured artist and met some fabulous people online

Digital images have been the single most important development in the cardmaking skills. I am so much more creative as I can manipulate the images and get a great result whereas I am not a good rubber stamper at all and very rarely could get a good image. Also, let's be honest rubber stamps are soooo expensive and I find this limits my creativity as you tend to only spend money on 'safe' images that you know you would use a lot of times. Some of the nicest cards I have made over the last year have been from experimenting with images I would never have considered purchasing as a rubber stamp.

I am fortunte to be working alongside some very talented cardmakers, full team as below:-


The 2nd round of the CDAC Progressive challenge will start on 1st September. Hopefully you will have taken part in round 1 and you will be shortly receiving the 5 free images to participate in the next round. If you haven't I would strongly recommend that you buy yourself back in - it will only cost you $1 for the five images and I know what they look like, they are DEFINITELY worth it :)

Hi Mandy,

I just popped over to congratulate you on becoming a member of the CDAC Progressive Challenge design team and here I find you dancing around with joy. :) You will do them proud, g/f.

Please take the time to check out my blog. I am giving away a free digital scrapbook software package that I got to first review and it is fantastic. It's easy to enter; no project required. I would love for you to win, Mandy.

Blessings,
Teresa
