New Design Team with a Birthday Celebration Hop

Welcome to Die Cuttin' Divas!
We are here to start 2012 with a new sketch challenge and the announcement of our new Design Team with a hop. We would like to "Welcome" Candy, Pat, Nikki, and Jennipher. We know you are going to truly enjoy their projects each week.  We will be saying "Good-bye" to Yvonne who will be taking care of a new baby later this month, and Jessica and Giselle have decided to take time off for family. I will continue hosting the challenges and showcases each week until Mistyrose returns.

January's Sketch in honor of Die Cuttin' Diva's birthday
(and our new design team member, Nikki).

Here are the Design Team's projects. Please hop along to each Diva's site to help celebrate our birthday. What's a celebration without scrumptious goodies?
Stop by each Diva's for your chance! 

This week's sketch sponsor is... Art for the Heart! The winner will receive this month's kit, which has been kindly donated by Suzanne, one of our design team members.

Each Design Team member will also post the winners on their links next Tuesday. Be sure to check back to see if you have been lucky.

Challenge #45...
Home Decor Winner
Please contact me, so I can forward your information to Sarah.

Remember...You will have one week to plan, create, and submit your project. There will be a showcase later this week and then the winner will be announced next Tuesday. Please remember to include which die-cut you used and a link back to our site is appreciated.

I followed your instructions and left comments on all the blogs from the hop. For the last person(Suzanne Rosberry)I was completely confused. Her blog had no comment area, no post no info. I didn't know what to do. That is why I'm leaving this comment on your blog.

Hi everyone, I just entered my first sketch with your group and had a couple of questions. I didn't see in the post that you have to follow the sketch verbatium or not. I also saw that a lot of people used a cupcake, but I didn't see that written as a requirement. I hope it was ok that I veered off from the sketch, but if not then would someone give me the guidelines? I don't want to step outside the lines :) Great projects from everyone btw!

Happy Birthday! Sketches are not my forte so I stepped out of my comfort zone & gave it a try and am pleased with my Happy Valentine Birthday Card I created.
