Happy Birthday CRAFT and BLOG HOP

Happy Birthday To Us
Happy Birthday To Us
Happy Birthday Dear CRAFT Challenge
Happy Birthday To Us!

Can you believe it? CRAFT Challenge is already 7 years old. Originally started by Tracy from Just Tracy Crafts and with a DT mostly recruited from Trimcraft forum members (Hence the term CRAFT Challenge, which stood for Crafters Residing Are Friendly Trimmies. Or if you wished alternative meaning of Can't Remember A Flipping Thing) on the 4th of May 2009.

We have now grown to be a large team of Design Team Members from all around the world, supplemented with lots of Guest Designers who join us for a month at a time.

We have always welcomed all kinds of craft, not just paper craft (unless specifically stated so in the challenge at the time) and are happy to have such a large group of faithful followers.

So, how are we going to celebrate this milestone?

Well, how else can we celebrate than to have our yearly Blogaversary Blog Hop?

We all feature one of our sponsors for this blog hop on our blogs and I have the honour of featuring and offering a prize from the following sponsor. You can win this prize by adding your name to Inlinkz at the end of this post. I would love to see your comments as well.

The sponsor on my blog is  Great Impressions Stamps

Great Impressions was founded in 1984 by Ken and Deone Mackenzie. With a love for stamping, the company grew. The result is a quality rubber stamp in either wood mount or stickable mount backing for all your stamping needs. Great Impressions' goal is to provide the highest quality stamps and to inspire creativity! Please check out our online store to see over 1,000 stamp designs today! We know you'll find something that will leave a "Great Impression" on you!

The prize to be won is a prize package from Great Impressions Stamps  by adding your name to the Inlinkz at the end of this post.

How can you get to win any of the prizes provided by our sponsors?

That is easy! Just follow the route on our blog hop (you can also find that in our side banner), Our Blog Hop lasts for the duration of this challenge, which means a closing time of Wednesday 6pm GMT on the 20th of May 2015.
