Cocoa Daisy Design Team call

Last Sunday night saw the Cocoa Daisy design team call. It was literally almost midnight, and submissions had to be in by May 25, 2008. Picked some of my work already in my computer and sent it in. The last up load went at 11:58pm, ( they are probably on a different time zone). Any way figured chances were slim with all of the advanced planning I had put in to it.
Did not win
But got this email, which is encouraging...

Hi Gayle,
Thank you very much for all the hard work and talent that went into your design team submission. Your work is simply amazing! We were completely awed by the number of stellar applications that we received. The design team and I spent many long hours pouring over the layouts wondering how we were going to be able to narrow down such a gifted field to just 3 submissions! I am sorry to say that your submission was not one of the ones selected for our design team. I hope this in no way discourages you from submitting to future design team calls as your layouts were incredible! In fact, you were a semi-finalist. In recognition of the time, hard work and the courage it takes to enter a design team competition, we'd like to offer you a $15 gift certificate to the Cocoa Daisy store. Please use the following discount code ****on your Also, if you note that you had tried out for the design team in the comments section of your order, we will also include a special gift.
Thank you again!
Kind regards
Tricia & the Cocoa Daisy
