Blogaversary Blog Hop at CRAFT Challenge, we are 1 year old, yippee!

Wow! It doesn't seem like a year since C.R.A.F.T  Challenge was born, a lickle, new baby blog.....aaahhhhh!...........all pink and cuddly and smelling of embossing powder.....

And here we are now, a year later, lots of followers, but still having loads and loads of fun.

So, it's our birthday and we’re celebrating in suitable style by having a fun blog-hop as well as our usual Challenge which, this week, is Birthday or Celebrations. You should have arrived here from Suzi's blog.

To give you some inspiration for the challenge, here is my card for this week:

This week I have made a card using some digistamps that had already been printed by my mum as well as some scraps of papers she had. I believe some of them are from the 'Worn Well' kit by  Angela aka Toucan Scraps again,  you can find this kit and many more at her shop at 3scrapateers.

The sponsors at this stop of the bloghop are the CRAFT Team and the prize are these lovely prima flowers and some ribbons/fibres.

Read on for further details on how to win.

Your prize for the Challenge this week is a lovely set of Papermania 'Henbury Lane' DesignerPapers and accessories, including beautiful adhesive gems, gorgeous blooms and a wonderful wood-mounted rubber stamp!
Now what d'you think of that! - Fabulous eh?!

We have lots of lovely individual sponsors for our Blog Hop too!
It’s going to be a lot of fun with prizes and draws at each stop and a final winner at the end, so don’t be a square—be there! -and be in with a chance to win!

Our blog-hop order is this:-

1) You start on the C.R.A.F.T Challenge blog and you visit each Design Team Member’s personal blog and leave a comment.

2) At each stop there will be a RED word associated with crafting for you to collect

3) We’re staying with our customary alphabetical list for the team so Andrea is the next stop after the C.R.A.F.T Challenge blog.
Andrea will give you the link to the nest DTM and so on.

4) At the end, we want you to get back to C.R.A.F.T and leave us a comment with the nine words you pick up! If you can make a sentence so much the better!

Just to make it clear for you to follow - here is our DT in alphabetical order.

Tigerlover (that's me)

We're SO Looking forward to seeing who comes up with the correct sentence as we have a really fabulous new sponsor for that - QVC's Scrapbooking Expert, Rosemary Merry!

She is kindly having a good look through her stock at Crabapple Crafts to find something lovely for that clever crafter (who will be chosen from the corrrect answers by random generator) who gets the sentence right!
Now how cool is THAT!
And that is in addition to all the prizes available at our Design Team Members' own blogs! My sponsor as said is the CRAFT Team. All you need to do is leave me a comment. The winner will be chosen randomly.

Now for some serious business:

The word you are looking for on my blog is WITH and your next and last stop is CRAFT Challenge. If you get lost along the way, just return to the CRAFT Challenge blog and pick up where you left off. Don't forget to leave a comment with your sentence made of the words collected along the way at the CRAFT Challenge blog.

Enough said! So off you go! Enjoy - and have yourselves some crafty fun - it's gonna be GREAT!

And obviously: good luck to you all and have a great weekend!


Jo and Tigerlover.

DT card for CRAFT Challenge 50, sketch

Morning all,

Another Thursday, another challenge at CRAFT Challenge.

This week our sponsor is Kut4U.

Our challenge this week is to create a card using a sketch by our lovely Eileen. Don't worry, the sketch looks worse than it really is. It's lovely really.

Here are my cards, I have used the sketch for my party invites for this year's birthday. The image is a freebie from Karen's Doodles I borrowed off my mum, the papers are out of her scraps and bits box.

Hope you like it.

All comments very welcome and much appreciated. Have a good weekend.
