Meet the New DT

Welcome all to the big reveal of the new DT members! :) First, I have to say that I am totally overwhelmed by the responses and the AMAZING cards....thank you so much for the considered creations and lovely posts. I was so overwhelmed by the love and kind words---and so inspired by the amazing creations. There were well over 100 outstanding and spectacular cards and that made it extremely hard to narrow down. I and the team have visited each blog, but I chose not to leave many comments---most of the time, I simply lurked silently. LOL

But believe me, I have visited and revisited and made lists, and made new lists, and then worked on them some more. :) And in the end, with votes from the current DT and lots of thought, we have selected what we considered to be the best from the most amazing selection of cards I have seen in one spot. Again, thank you. :)

Since there were so many amazing cards, I couldn’t narrow it down like I thought I would be able to, so I have created 3 main groups.

Let’s start with two groups of runner-ups and then reveal the new final members. 

These entries were not selected as finalists, but I thought they needed some recognition for being outstanding. If your name is below, please grab the Top 15 badge and proudly post it on your blog...

Laura W.
Becky G
Pam T
Alina B
Kat W
Lisa W
Marsha S
Christine R

Next we have the runner-ups for the finalists. I would have loved to offer all of these talented ladies a spot, but that is logistically not these members will be offered a month-long guest position soon----we just have to work out the details on when and how.
Angie B

Nicole N



Tracey P
Kat G 
And now we have the top finalists for the DT positions....drum roll, please. 
Please meet the new designers for the Tiddly Inkers. 
We are so thrilled to have them. :)

I am again so thankful for all the amazing entries. 
This was lots of fun, yet very difficult to narrow down, and as I said yesterday, I worry about the many that we couldn't select even though I would love to have 100 designers. Please be happy for these lovely designers and come back for our next challenge and get inspired by their amazing creations and share YOUR next amazing Tiddly Inks project.

We have an amazing new release coming up soon, so I thought I would give you the first sneak peek. This little dragon queen was colored by Alyce. :) 
This and 8 other images will be released August 15... 
so one way or the other, I hope we see you soon. :)
