CRAFT Challenge 103, Happy Birthday to Us! and Blogaversary Blog Hop.



Morning all and a Very Happy Birthday to us All! CRAFT Challenge is having its second Blogaversary today and we are going to celebrate that in a special way. We have loads of presents to give away thanks to many of our very lovely sponsors. Thank you so much to all of you, our loyal followers and our fabulous sponsors! Without all of you we would not be able to do this!

We have a few things happening this week to celebrate our birthday in style. We hope you will all join us to make this a birthday to remember.



First, we are having our normal challenge and sponsoring that this week will be 2 Cute Rubber Stamps, who are offering the winner of the challenge a choice of 2 rubber stamps or 3 digistamps of his or her choice from their shop. Link your creation to Inlinkz below as per usual to be in with a chance of winning this prize. Our challenge this week is a very simple 'Happy Birthday!' to Us.

Second, we will be having a blog hop with a prize on offer on each of the many stops we have (all our DT's and even our GDT's). For this we have a few little rules to follow. Here is our Route to follow:

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by a last minute change in our blog route. Our lovely DT Annette has unfortunately not been able to join us this week after all and you will therefore need to go to Jo's digistamps blog instead. We would not want you to miss out on any chances to win a lovely prize now, would we? We are really very sorry for this inconvenience as Annette's blog may still feature in the route on some of our (G)DT's blogs.

If any of the blog posts were not up yet at the time you visited or a word was missing, please visit them again. (we are trying to rectify any blips that have occurred when made aware of them) We apologise for any blips in the hop, there may also have been some time zone differences accounting for late posts. Have fun!

Jo's digistamp blog (last minute change, we do apologise!)

Nikki (GDT)
Sharon
Tigerlover (junior DT)
CRAFT Challenge (you're hereat the end!) Your word here is and

If you get lost along the way, please come back here and you will be able to find your way again. We will also have this list on each of the stops to let you know where is next.

Third, while on this blog hop, we would like you to collect a word from every DT blog and form a sentence with this. Leave your answer in a comment and we will choose a random winner from the correct answers. The winner of this will win a mega prize from our sponsor Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. We will obviously not allow comments to get posted to the blog during this week to stop any cheating, lol.



We hope you will enjoy playing along with this challenge again and will all be helping us to celebrate our Blogaversary in style. Thank you for everyone who joined us again last week for our Alien/Space challenge and thank you again to Truly Madly Crafty for sponsoring us last week. Please scroll down to find the winners of last week's challenge, our Top3 and our Star of the Month.  If you were one of them, please contact us to claim your prize and/or badge.
