Happy Hellos to the new and Sad Goodbyes to the old (not literally)

FOR OUR CURRENT CHALLENGE SEE HERE

As you are probably aware if you are regulars here at SGC we recently had a DT call, which we decided to have over a couple of weeks as a certain little baby wasn't due until the end of the month and his Mum ALWAYS goes overdue..... well he showed up early and put things into a bit of a tailspin.  But we have things well in control now and we are well ready to make the DT announcements, so here we go...............


It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to some lovely ladies who have been with us from start of this adventure,

ALICIA
KAREN
SUE

So it is a very sad goodbye to these mainstays from the original DT here SGC, BUT also we are very excited because we are saying hello to a bunch of talented new comers to our team, so here is a huge SGC welcome to........

AMBER
BEKKI
BETTINA L
DEEANNA
KELLIE
KIM
NORINE
REBECCA
SHANNA
SHELL
SUE N
SUE U
TANYA

As you can probably tell we have also decided to expand the team a bit so you will have loads more luscious DT samples to look at on challenge days.  Thank you to EVERYONE who took the time to apply, you all made it a really difficult decision!

And now just because I can't resist showing off and I co own this challenge blog, here is the totally gorgeous reason this post is late...........



Ok so that is a wrap......... 
Thanks to you all for being so awesome......

Hi there, everyone! Huge thanks to all of you that entered our last 'Anything Goes' challenge - and to those of you that have entered our DT call.

Despite all that, the 'show must go on' and so the challenge this time is to create a project for the boys or men in your lives!

EDITED: Update..... Lou has had a beautiful baby boy! Mother and babe doing well.

We've got fabulous sponsors, as usual!

Only 5 hours until DT call finishes

Just a reminder.... only 5 hours to go until DT call ends.

We have a heap of very talented card makers / scrapbookers to look at already so far.... Just letting you all know that there will be a delay of a few days before we send out an email to successful applicants.... maybe even up to a week........ why.... I hear you ask??????? LOU is in labour as I type this..... yep she has done a runner on me and the DT lovelies to have her baby (zippy as he/she is known to us!!)

Thank you to the many of you that have applied... you sure aren't making our life any easier!!

Hugs
Tracy
