Pile It On #6 - Stripes and/or Dots + DT Call

Welcome to a new challenge at Pile It On! This week our theme is Stripes and/or Dots.

We're also having a DT Call this week, so if you'd like to join our team please add "DT" after your entry (and be sure to include your primary email address). We'll announce the challenge winners next Wednesday (February 19), and the DT picks the following Sunday (February 23).

PIO DT Info:
  1. The PIO Team is looking for crafting bloggers of all kinds! You can do cards, LOs, altered items, paper crafts, home decor, digital, hybrid, you name it. We're all about having fun, being inspired, and supporting the crafting community.
  2. The mission of Pile It On! is to incorporate many challenges into one project. Along with your project, you are required to submit a list of challenges that you will be entering your project into (following the rules of each specific challenge blog).

Projects & challenge lists are due on the PIO DT blog by 6PM CST Saturday, and due on your blog at 7AM CST Sunday (on your week). Members comment and vote on entries EVERY WEEK by 6PM CST Wednesday.
  4. We are usually sponsored by Digi Stamp companies, so you must be able to print digital images. On these weeks, you will receive 1 digital stamp from the sponsor. Other sponsors may provide samples or discounts. You will never be required to purchase anything!
  5. You must join the Yahoo group and our DT blog, which how we communicate as a group and where you will find the weekly challenges.
  6. That's it! Join this week's challenge and add "DT" to your name when linking up.

Our Stripes and/or Dots Challenge is sponsored by StitchyBear's Digi Outlet, and one lucky participant will win a $10.00 gift voucher to their mega store!
