C.R.A.F.T Challenge 51 - It's Our Birthday!

This week it's a special occasion at C.R.A.F.T challenge, it's our first birthday and to celebrate we're having a blog hop in addition to our regular challenge. You should have arrived to me from Magda.

Our theme this week is Celebrations or Birthday, and the main prize is this collection of Papermania Henbury Lane papers and other goodies:

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 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.

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 correct answers by random generator) who gets the sentence right! Now how cool is THAT!

The sponsor for my stop is Stitchy Bear Stamps, who are kindly giving two images as the prize - Rub-a-Dub-Dub by Stitchy Bear Stamps and Napping by Beary Dust Stamps. To see these and the rest of their lovely range of digi stamps go and visit their shop - and throughout May they've got a sale on where's there's 50% off all their digi stamps!

For my DT card I've used Rub-A-Dub-Dub, coloured with pencils and Sakura pens. Other materials used are Cuttlebug Spots and Dots embossing folder, backing paper from my stash, sentiment stamp and embellishments free in magazines, garden twine and flowers from a bunch of artificial flowers secured with brads.

To be in with a chance of winning the two images at my stop, leave a comment on my blog and I will draw the winner by next Wednesday evening, 26th May. And don't forget to find the red word hidden somewhere not too far away on my blog!

Now you need to go and visit Suzi's blog to take part in the next part of our blog hop.

Look forward to seeing what you make this week, and good luck!

C.R.A.F.T Challenge 50

This week at C.R.A.F.T we have a sketch. from DT member Ei:

For my card I've used an owl from Polkadoodles Back to Nature CD, and the woodgrain paper is from their Not For Girls CD. The leafy backing paper is from Crafter's Companion Flower Fairies CD.

I used die cut and punched leaves and punched out flowers with glitter added to the centre. The sentiment was free in a magazine.

The prize this week is a £15 voucher from our sponsor Kut 4 U to spend in their store, they sell a lovely range of charms, chipboard shapes and other stuff too.

I'm also entering this card into Polkadoodles Summer Blossoms challenge.
