Colour Create 44 - A DT Call

Hello everyone. Welcome to a special Colour Create Challenge. We are super excited to be running a DT call with this challenge, but before we get to that we had better announce the winner of the last challenge. Without further ado, the winner is................

Ane Lene - Min Hobbyverden

Congratulations! Please would you e-mail us at with your home postal address and we'll pass your details to the Rubber Room so that you can claim your prize.


We have a couple of spaces for some new people to join us on our fab design team. Do you like working with a colour theme when making your creations? Do you fancy joining our fantastic design team for 6 months? If so, all you need to do is to create a brand new project using this week's challenge colours and optional extra.

Let us know you are interested in the DT call by either adding the letters 'DT' to your link in Mr Linky or, you can e-mail us at (remember to tell us what your Mr Linky number is and please title your e-mail 'DT CALL').

As a DT member you will need to make one project for this challenge every 2 weeks. The project needs to include both the challenge colours and the optional extra. We are not aligned to any company so you'll be free to use any images or products that you like in your creations. We do have a rota for commenting so you will need to comment on the entries assigned to you.

The DT call will close on Wednesday 19th May at 6.00 p.m. GMT and it is open to everyone world wide. Please don't be put off if you don't normally make cards because this call is open to everyone and we'd love to see some other types of projects represented on our DT. The decision will be made by everyone on our design team and I bet you all make it really hard for us! ;o)

Anyway, the lucky people will be informed as soon as possible after 21st May.

Good Luck!

Sad News.

We are saying another sad farewell to the amazingly talented Deanne today. She has been a fantastic team member and will be missed so much by all of us on the DT. We have all been in awe of the wonderful style of her cards and she leaves a big gap. Thank you so much for all the fantastic work and commitment that you gave us Deanne. We wish you all the very best for the future, and when things calm down for you a bit we hope to see you visiting us and joining in the challenges from time to time.

Good News.

Congratulation to our fab teamie Di! Her fantastic digital images have made it into rubber! Well done Di! You'll see that we have a set of her first rubber images as our prize this week.
