New Design Team

It is my pleasure to introduce you to The Character Cafe Design team!!!!
Please help me in welcoming:
Sr. DT's
Ancient DT's (Can't get rid of us!)
Fink (me)
I have to tell you I sure had a tough time picking this design team with the great applicants we had try out! I have been on the waiting end of being picked and really know how it feels to be waiting or not picked but now I really understand how the person who chooses everyone feels about it!!!! I sure wish I could have picked everyone but I just couldn't!!!! My decision was based on all kinds of things!!!! It did not matter if you were new or experienced when I decided. Please try out again if you were not chosen this time around!!!!
Welcome to the new gals!!!! We will be having a Feature Friday challenge this week instead of a new release! Our blog hop/new release will be postponed until next Friday!

September New Release Blog Hop

Woohoo, it's blog hop time again!! Yay...September, kids are back in school...well not all kids. Us Canucks up here in Iglooville...they go back on Tuesday. Maybe then I can start gettin' crafty again since our summer has been so crazy busy. Anyways back to the hop, if you've just come from Fink's blog then you're on the right path. If you've just stumbled upon our blog then go back here to start at the begining.
Here's a recap on the details to qualify for the prize:

What we’re asking of you, the hoppers…Comment on all the DT member blogs to be eligible to win the Grand Prize. On Friday, each Designer will announce a winner from their comments to receive the digital stamp they worked with. We’d love for you to become a follower of our blog, or member of The CafĂ© Store, however, this is just a request, not a requirement to win anything. We know that once you try TCC, you’ll want to join us.

The Grand Prize winner will get 2 new release images + a $5.00 gift certificate for the store.

Hope you enjoyed all the wonderful creations from our talented DT as much as I did. This is our current team's last blog hop as they are finishing their term this month. We want to thank them for all their hard work and their beautiful creations...they continue to amaze us every week.

This also means that we will be announcing our DT call for our next term...stay tuned details will be up next week. Until then...happy crafting!!

Join us again next Friday for Feature Friday and a chance again to win our digi's. You can also find us on facebook, CDAC, AiFactory and 50/50.
