14th Birthday at CRAFT Challenge

 Good Morning All and a Very Happy 14th Birthday to us all here at CRAFT Challenge!!


This year we are 14 years old already and still going strong. Only one team member has been present from the start, Jo. She seen a lot of team members come and go over these 14 years, but all have been fabulous and very talented. Even though Jo’s time is limited these days, she still loves being part of this team.

We all feel honoured to be working with such talented and lovely people.


We have a DT call at the moment, so if you feel you would like to join our fabulous team, then 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 Trimgym’s Digital Stamps and Images

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.

As always, we will choose the Top 3 as we do every week and the first placed Top 3 will be invited to be a GDT for a future challenge
