My New DCD Design Team

Well as you know over at my Die cut Dreams challenge blog we have had a DT call over the last week and we had some lovely entries and I originally was only going to pick one or 2 new DT's but there is so much talent out there this proved to be an impossible task and I really would have liked to take on all the lovely ladies but that would have been just to many so I decided I would take on 4 new DT's but that was still an impossible choice so I have decided to go BIG (many of you girls know I like big and quite often have no self control !! lol) so I have picked 6 new DT members and I'm splitting my DT at DCD into 2 groups of 5.
Both groups will have a head DT to run each team and they will share the commenting each week so all your lovely entries will get an equal share of comments (if you could help us by turning off your word verification this would make our lives so much easier and we'd love you for it too !! lol)
The 2 new head DT's who will run the 2 teams will be Nicola & Karen
Now its time for me to tell you who the Design Teams will be made up of ; well On Nicola's Team we have our lovely DT Member Victoria who has been with us from day one and will be joined by new DT members (you heard it hear first !!) I would like to give a warm welcome to our first 3 new members Liz Marsden, Dawn & Deb‘s R.
Then on Karen's Team we have our lovely Helene who has also been with us since the start of the DCD challenge blog, joined by 3 more new DT members; Welcome Tracy, Pamela & Crafty Chris
congratulations to you all and thank you to everyone who took part in the DT call all your cards were lovely and its just a shame I couldn't pick you all, but I would like to ask all the girls who entered the DT call that didn't make it in to the Dream team if you would like to be our guest designer for a forth coming challenge we would love to have you, if you would like to then please go back to the DT call post and leave me a comment telling me you would like to guest design for us and I will contact you with a date and theme for a challenge.
Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday xx

Who's My Candy Girl ? & the Truth !!! lol

Hi girls it's time to sort the the lie from the truth !!! I'm not late this week, I gave you an extra day for reasons that will become apparent,
But first lets look at last weeks statements and find the lie ;
1. My favourite colour is Pink... Yes of course it is you all knew that was true !!
2. I don't much like the colour yellow...
That's true as well I have mentioned it often
3. My car is Red...
Yes I got a brand new shiny Red car for my birthday the year before last.
4. since I was a child I have a special ability to remember things by associating them with colours and numbers...
Sorry as unbelievable as it might seem its the truth I have a system that helps me to remember things by giving them colours and numbers
5. I have a Mensa IQ of 155...
I don't want to boast but it's also true I do and I have a certificate, I was going to scan it to show you but Garry pointed out it has personal details on it and I shouldn't blog it so you're just gonna have to believe me!! I'm telling the truth this time !! lol
6. Although I never use it (coz I always come and go via my back door in the garden )I have a Red front door...
Well it was the most simplest of all the answers and no one even considered it not to be true !!!
I don't have a Red front door , my front door is Blue
So I have no winner this week that's why I left it an extra day to see if anyone gave the right answer but no one did so....its a "Roll over" the prize will just get bigger until someone wins it which I expect will be next Monday !!
I hope you all have a great week, come and join in next week when I will be lying through my teeth again with 5 lies and one truth for you to find!!! he he
