Challenge 467 - 10th of May – Annual Birthday Bloghop

Morning all and a Very Happy Birthday to us all!

Can you believe it? It's 2018 already, where does the time go?
This year we are 9 years old already and still going strong. Only one team member has been present from the start, Jo (me). I have seen a lot of team members come and go over these 9 years, but all have been fabulous and very talented. I feel honoured to be working with such talented and lovely people.

If you feel at any time that you would like to join our fabulous team, then just have a look on our DT Call page, which will inform you of any openings on the team.

And now it's time for our birthday celebrations. This week our challenge is


(what else could it be?)

Anything that fits in with this subject, qualifies for entering into this challenge.

There is a maximum of 1 entry per person for this challenge and as always it needs to be new work (so created and posted after this challenge has started). Although we love to see your work, it would put those contestants that put more than 1 entry in at an unfair advantage. The same limit exists for the prizes to be won on the blogs of our DT members.

Please also make sure to turn word verification off as this makes leaving a comment on your lovely creations much easier. We do not leave a comment if you have word verification switched on.

Here is an alphabetical list of the fabulous sponsors for our Blog Hop, all loyal supporters of our challenge blog:

The rules this year are very simple:

  1. Make a project for this challenge and your entry will be put in the random draw for the prize by Di's Digistamps.
  2. Visit the blogs of our DT and enter into their Inlinkz to be put in the random draw for the prize on their blog.
  3. The Top3 will again be chosen as every week as well.
  4. No sentences hunting this year I'm afraid.

The prize on this blog is a $12 voucher from Di's Digistamps for the winner of the challenge.

And here are the creations of our DT to give you some inspiration.

Hester – GDT
(using 'Salsa Dancing Couple and Valentines Day Papers 2013 C' by

Lucy – junior DT

(using 'Gaffi' by CRAFTY SENTIMENTS)

So, now it's up to you again, we would love to come and visit your creations again. If you are 15 or younger, please include your age again in your name, collect a special badge here and contact us for a little prize from Jo (2 digistamps or a paperpack). I am afraid we are generally too busy to chase you for this.

Don't forget to contact us to claim your prize if you have won one of our challenges or to collect your badge if you made our Top 3 here! We only will respond to people who get in touch with us and will not go looking for you! (Sorry, a bit too busy to do that). If prizes have not been claimed within 2 weeks of the winners being announced, you will forfeit your chance for the prize advertised.

Have fun with our challenge and good luck!

Jo and the CRAFT Team.
