You will need to commit to participate in the weekly challenges using the theme set and any sponsor images provided.

Do I need experience?
"CERTAINLY NOT!" We just want people who are enthusiastic, prepared to post a Fab'n'Funky DT card weekly on your blog and love to craft and are up for a challenge! If you are on other DT's that doesn't exclude you either but please do consider your work load when entering our DT Call.

Is there any financial reward?
Unfortunately the answer to that is  " NO " ! We are very lucky however as many of our sponsors do supply us with their images and/or products in the weeks they sponsor.

How are the themes set?
You will  go on a rota to set the weekly challenge ,
when you can choose the weeks theme taking into account our sponsors and any events going on at the time.

Anything else?
The Fab'n'Funky Challenges DT is a very friendly bunch we openly discuss everything between us all, so obviously we are looking for a friendly enthusiastic team player for our team, but don't worry we are all here to help you find your way around and we just love new teamies!!

If you applied  before and were unlucky, please do not let this put you off entering this time around
