Time to Celebrate with a CRAFT BLOG HOP - BIRTHDAYS

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 6 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 honour 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.

The prize to be won is a selection of
ribbons from Crafty Ribbons .

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 20th of May 2015.

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

What can you win on our challenge blog?

The winner of the winning sentence wins the special pack by Trimgym's Digital Stamps and Images.

You should have come here from Abby's blog and as you can see your next stop isBrenda's blog. The start and finish of this blog hop are at CRAFT Challenge Blog.

And here is my project for this week, hope you like it. I have used 'Connie Fung's Spring Fairy' by Sweet Pea Stamps.

I have coloured my image with promarkers, added lace and ribbon, Viva pearls, pearls, Tonic punches and die. DP is a old paper capsule collection

And now for our Blog Hop route:

CRAFT Challenge Blog (you are here at the start of the hop)
Aunty Sue (you are here now)
CRAFT Challenge Blog (you are here at the end of the hop)

And here is the letter to be collected on this blog:
