CRAFT Challenge Blog Hop

Happy Birthday To Us
Happy Birthday To Us
Happy Birthday Dear CRAFT Challenge
Happy Birthday To Us!

Can you believe it? CRAFT Challenge is already 5 years old. Originally started by Tracy from Just Tracy Crafts and with a DT mostly recruited from Trimcraft forum members (Hence the term CRAFT Challenge, which stood for Crafters Residing Are Friendly Trimmies. Or if you wished alternative meaning of Can't Remember A Flipping Thing) on the 4th of May 2009.

We have now grown to be a large team of Design Team Members from all around the world, supplemented with lots of Guest Designers who join us for a month at a time.

We have always welcomed all kinds of craft, not just paper craft (unless specifically stated so in the challenge at the time) and are happy to have such a large group of faithful followers.

So, how are we going to celebrate this milestone?

Well, how else can we celebrate than to have our yearly Blogaversary Blog Hop?

We all feature one of our sponsors for this blog hop on our blogs and I have the honor of featuring and offering a prize from the following sponsor. You can win this prize by adding your name to Inlinkz at the end of this post. I would love to see your comments as well.

Prize is 4 images from Sassy Studio Designs.

How can you get to win any of the prizes provided by our sponsors?

That is easy! Just follow the route on our blog hop (you can also find that in our side banner), Our Blog Hop lasts for the duration of this challenge, which means a closing time of Wednesday 6pm GMT on the 14th of May 2014.

And here are our little rules for this challenge/blog hop:

  • Our challenge this week is Birthday
  • Create something with this in mind
  • Add your project to our Inlinkz below to be in with a chance of 3 digital stamps from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More

And here is my project for this week, hope you like it. I have used Princess Aurora Honey from Sassy Studio Designs.  I used BIC Markits to color the image.  The lace and bling are from my mom's stash.  I stamped the butterflies for the top and embossed card stock for the bottom.
