Craft Challenge Birthday Hop

Good morning hope you have a drink as i have a long post for you today but I am sure you will agree that it is well worth the read as it is that time of year when we celebrate At Craft with a Birthday Hop . So lets get on with it. I have 2 card to share with you today for the 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 7 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 sponsors. You can win these prizes by adding your name to Inlinkz at the end of this post. I would love to see your comments as well.

And you can win 2 digital stamps from All Dressed Up! 

The prize to be won is 3 digital stamps of choice from Oddball Art.
