Challenge #597 Birthday Bloghop


  Good Morning All and a Very Happy 12th Birthday to us all here at CRAFT Challenge!!


This year we are 12 years old already and still going strong. Only one team member has been present from the start, Jo. I have seen a lot of team members come and go over these 12 years, but all have been fabulous and very talented. I feel honoured to be working with such talented and lovely people. Even though my time is limited these days, I still love being part of this team.


If you feel you would like to join our fabulous team, then just have a look at our DT Call page, which will inform you of any openings on the team. Or simply get in touch with us and let us know.


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 this challenge.


There is a maximum of 1 entry per person for this challenge and as always it needs to be recent (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 limitation exists for the prizes to be won on the blogs of our DT members.


Please also turn word verification off as this makes leaving a comment on your lovely creations much easier. We will 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 we will put your entry in the random draw for the prize from Sweet n Sassy.

2.    Visit the blogs of our DT and enter their Linky or their comments if no Linky is in place to be put in the random draw for the prize on their blog.

3.    As always, we will choose the Top3 as we do every week and this week each Top3 will win a prize too.


The prize on this blog for the winner of the challenge is


a $10 voucher

 for Sweet n Sassy.

Number one in the Top 3 will win


 for Crafty Ribbons.

Number two in the Top 3 will win 

 a $10 voucher
