I see cards by the DT. The stamps could also be used on layouts. Are scrapbookers welcomed to apply or just cardmakers?

Also how make creations/projects are required per month?

Another fun challenge, Michele! The DT cards are, as always, stunning! I like making long cards and they fit so nicely into business envelopes, so thanks for the reminder to do it more often!

This is a fun challenge. I'm loving the long and short of it and inspired by the DT's entries.

I'm wondering, for the DT application, can the cards I submit have been made for past CAS-ual Fridays challenges? Thanks! :)
