WELCOME TO THE NEW DESIGN DOLLIES! here's our first challenge!

it's that time again!

WOO HOO, what an exciting year it was for the Design Dollies!

we kicked things off in October 2009, LEAPT onto the scene in 2010, and ended the year with an amazing team, loads of participation and support from our fellow crafters and bloggers, and we all learned so much from each other and grew closer, making new friends along the way. i suspect some of us will be LIFERS!

today, we kick things off for the new year, and we are THRILLED to introduce our brand new Design Dollies! it was SO difficult to choose our team from the amazing applications we received, but i think it's going to be an exciting term, and i KNOW these gals are going to inspire the glitter off of you! ('cuz we all know how difficult it is to get that stuff off!)

thank you SO MUCH to all who showed interest - we were very humbled by your kind words and your amazing talent!

CLICK HERE to meet the new Design Dollies
for the January-June 2011 term!

and let's start things off with a brand new challenge, shall we? in usual Dollies fashion, we have a COLOR challenge for you to start this round, BUT, we are changing things up a bit. we'll still be bringing you weekly challenges, and we wouldn't deprive you of the TRIFECTA (of which many of you have seemingly become quite fond!). HOWEVER, we're hosting one challenge per week - each Monday - with the fourth week giving you the TRIFECTA fix! and don't worry - there will still be lots of nifty prizes for the taking, and we can't wait to start sharing the love!

here's your first COLOR challenge for 2011, as set by the very lovely KarenB:

LOVE this combo! so, so versatile, and i swear i could have created a DOZEN projects for this challenge! in the end, i decided to play with a couple of my trusted little MUSHES dudes from Some Odd Girl for this humble little card:

(dig that funky blue patterned paper? it's the inside of
an envelope from a BILL i received last month!)

wanna see what the rest of the gang did with this challenge? wanna play along? CLICKETY CLICK! you have until next SUNDAY, January 16th at midnight EST to get in on the fun. your project must be created NEW for this challenge, and these MUST be the predominant colors in order to qualify for the first prize of the month... wanna know what that is? hmm, i'll have to get back to you on that one. ;)
