Good Morning all

****amended to add - our DT call has now closed early - due to the great response we received******


If you are looking for this weeks challenge it is here

We have decided to do a separate post for our DT call for Fab'n'Funky Challenges as things often get a little confusing when all the information is crammed in with the weekly challenge post 

So here goes!

We are looking for two new members for our friendly DT at Fab'n'Funky Challenges. Previous DT experience is not necessary so please don't feel that you cannot apply if you have never worked on a DT before - we all started off that way and its a great way to join in, make new friends and visit all the wonderful blogs out there.

We post a new challenge every Wednesday morning and you will be required to post your completed project by the previous Tuesday night (at the latest). We also have a rota to host and post the weekly challenge on the challenge blog - so you would get to host your own challenge around once every 3 months. We are a popular challenge blog and have been generously sponsored by some fabulous companies whose images we get to work with.

We work on a two team rota so you need only post once every two weeks if you want to - though most of our DT post in every challenge - its just nice to know that there's no pressure to come up with a project every week

The other role to undertake in working on our DT is to visit the blogs of the entrants to the weekly challenges.  We do this on a rota system and you would be allocated a number of blogs to visit and comment on the entry, this is an important part of the role as all bloggers love to have visitors and comments on their creations!

If you are interested in joining our friendly team here at "Fab'n'Funky"
please contact me via email at

giving  the following information 

  • Your name 
  • A link to your blog
  • Details of any DT work you have done before (if any) and a little about yourself
  • Why you would like to be part of the DT at Fab'n'Funky Challenges

If you have any questions just ask away, I will endeavour to answer your questions ASAP. Please can  you put "Fab'n'Funky" DT position in the subject line.  All emails will be acknowledged (don't forget to check your spam folder!)

The call will run until 31st March and new DT members will be notified the first week in April

In the meantime if anyone is interested in a GDT position on our team please leave a comment in the comments box below and I'll contact you with the details
