Gina K Designs Guest DT Call and A New Challenge Blog!!!!

From Millan.Net 

Wishing you all a Happy New Year with lots of wonderful and exciting times ahead!!!!!!

We have some  BIG fun and news to share...........so get your creativity flowing!!!!

First.....Gina K. Designs has decided to have a year filled with Guest Designers!!!!  For 5 of the months this year we will have 3 Guest Designers who will join the Design Team!!!!  Here's the detailed info:

 Welcome to another exciting year at Gina K Designs! As you know, Gina loves to keep things fresh and fun! So we have a wonderful design opportunity to share!

We will have a Guest DT for the months of Feb, April, July, Sept, and Nov. We will hold 2 weeks of challenges the month before in the search for that month's guests! We will have 2 challenges per week for those 2 weeks and anyone interested must participate in all of them. The challenge cards may not be used for any other challenges anywhere. Challenges must be completed by their specific due date and have the appropriate keyword/tag. Only Gina K images and sentiments may be used, however any other products can be from any vendor.
The photos must be of good quality, clear and focused with the background not being too busy. You can get some good ideas on photo quality by browsing the cards uploaded by Gina and the Design Team.
Anyone (that means internationally) can apply to be on our Gina K Guest DT, whether you're on other Design Teams or even have been a Gina K DT member in the past.  You must have a Blog and a Facebook page so you can post on your guest month. 
Gina and the Moderators will choose from all the submissions....the winners will be notified by e-mail via Stamp TV. Because we know we will receive so many gorgeous cards don't be surprised to find many of them pinned to our Gina K Designs “You've Been Pinned” Pinterest Board from among all of the entries!!  You may participate in the other guest months even if you were chosen for a previous one!

Guest Designer's will:
Receive up to 2 of the new, to-be-released stamp sets.
Be Featured here in the Stamp TV Gallery and on our Stamp TV Pinterest Board and Facebook Page.
Attend the Release Party on Stamp TV and share samples.
Participate in the Blog Hop specific to the day(s) of their stamp set(s) with the post being at the top of your blog for 24 hours.
Host one of the Monday challenges that month on Stamp TV.

(Specific challenges will be posted in the Challenge Forum on Stamp TV on the first 2 weeks of the month before the Guest DT spots.)
