C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 51 - Birthday/Celebrate

We are celebrating over at C.R.A.F.T. this week - it's our Blogaversary, yes we are 1yr old, my goodness doesn't time fly. To celebrate we are having a Fun Blog Hop and our theme is Birthday/Celebrate

The Prize for this weeks Random Winner is a fabulous selection of Goodies from

Papermania's Henbury Lane

How fabby is this ~ I wish I could join in!!! lol

Not only that, we have lots of individual prizes and sponsored goodies in store for you at every DT's blog 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 miss out - you know what they say! - you have to be in it 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 next 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.


Suzi (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 having a good look through her stock at Crabapple Crafts to find something lovely for that clever crafter (who will be chosen from the correct answers by random generator) if they get the sentence right! Now how Fabulous is THAT!

I Have a wonderful Sponsor for my Candy

The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs

Debbie is generously giving my lucky winner the choice of 3 yes 3 of her wonderful Digi Images. Just click on the picture to take you to see all her lovely creations.

I've used one of The Crafty Pad images this week for my Birthday Celebration card, it's called Ted does Piano. Isn't it adorable. I've coloured the image with Promarkers, and used Papermanias' Simply Elegant DP, the flowers, leaves, brad and pearls are from my stash. The sentiment was inked up using one of my studio G "INKPADS"

If you've come to me from the lovely Rose then you are on the right track, if not I suggest you go back to the beginning which of course is C.R.A.F.T. and start from there. You don't want to miss out on the lovely candy that is available at every stop.

You are nearly at the end of your Journey, but your next step on the Hop is to pop over to Tiger Lover,

Don't forget to pick up my craft related word which is in RED

Hope you all enjoy you Hopping, have fun girls.
