Welcome to Die Cuttin' Diva's, the newest weekly card challenge blog!  We will be getting things started here on February 1st, 2011 and we would LOVE it if you could join us.

Here's a little bit about how the challenges will work:

1.  Each Tuesday a new challenge will be posted.  The first Tuesday of the month will be a sketch challenge followed by various die cut challenges (example; use a baby themed cut, use a heart cut etc. )

2.  All card entries must contain a die cut from which ever type of machine you have (Cricut, Slice, Sillouette, Cuttlebug etc) and meet the criteria of the challenge.
3.  Each month a random winner will be chosen from all the entries over the 4-5 weeks, the more you enter the more chances you have to win. What will the winner receive? Not only will you win a prize, you will also have the opportunity to guest design during the third week of the following month.

The goal of this blog is to help you utilize your cutting machines by giving you motivational challenges, to meet new scrappers and friends and to have loads of FUN!

Can't wait to see your creations! 

PS.  The first 100 people to follow us will be entered to win a Cricut Cartridge
