Let's go to the hop

Hi all,

This week is a special week. CRAFT Challenge are 3 years old this week! So, Happy Birthday to us!!

Our challenge this week is 'Celebration'. So, any project fitting this subject will be eligible for a prize.

We also have our blog hop this week and you can choose to do one or more of the following this week:

  1. Take part in our challenge

  2. Add your name to Inlinkz on the DT and GDT blogs to be in with winning a prize on their blogs.

  3. Complete the blog hop (adding your name to Inlinkz on your way), collect all letters and form the sentence it forms and leave a comment at the end of our challenge post with your answer.

We have a lot of sponsors this week, with lots of prizes to be won.

  • A prize for the winner of our 'Celebration' challenge this week.

  • A prize for the randomly chosen winner on each (G)DT member's blog.

  • A prize for the randomly chosen comment with the correctly formed sentence from the collected letters along the way.
To ensure all is done fairly, we will enable comment moderation on the challenge blog this week to keep all answers behind, so there can be no cheating. (Not that you would anyway!)

Our blog hop route:



Nikki - You're here!

As you can see you should have come here from Sue's blog. If you have not, please return there or to Elke's blog for the start of our blog hop.

The sponsor on my blog is Digi Doodle Shop

By adding your name/blog to Inlinkz below you can be in with a chance of winning 

 a $10 store voucher

Don't forget to link in and to collect your letter on this stop which is

Hopefully you didn't miss it!

So, now it is time to get you some inspiration for this challenge. Here is my card for this challenge:

One of my friends recently gave birth to a little boy (and so I needed a celebration card, great for this challenge!), and I thought that this fantastic image from Digi Doodle Shop would fit the bill for an easel card.  The papers are a mix of papermania and from a CD which was free with a magazine.  For the sentiment, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, inked it and then cut out the sentiment I wanted.  The embellishments are all from my stash.

Your next stop will be Tigerlover. Hope you are having fun! Enjoy the rest of our blog hop!

I'll be back with my normal waffle tomorrow.

Mr Linky was not working, but has decided to make an appearance.  I will include those of you who made a comment and have completed the blog hop in my draw.  If Mr Linky disappears again, please just comment and I will include you too.  Thanks for your understanding.
