Well, our blog has been helping crafters and challenges to find each other for FIVE years now and we are celebrating by holding a Birthday Bash. There are lots of prizes to be won - take a look at the posts over on Challenges for Days every day from July 22nd to 28th to see who is hosting that day's giveaway - and today it's my turn. To join in today, all you need to do is comment on this post then check back both here and on the main Challenges for Days blog next week to see if you are a winner. And don't forget to check out the other team blogs for the rest of the week - this special post on Challenges For Days will tell you where to look each day - and there's a special bonus because if you comment on the special post you will be in the running for another prize!
The prize I am offering is great for making cards for new babies and young children:
A set of new baby stamps, a "Birthday Boy" stamp, a spool of pink ribbon printed with the words "baby girl" in white and a spool of baby blue ribbon printed with the words "Just for you" in fuchsia. Don't forget to leave a comment on this post if you would like to be in with a chance of winning these goodies. I'll be drawing a winner from all comments made by midnight on Saturday, US Pacific Time - that's 8am on Sunday 29th July here in the UK.
Of course it wouldn't be a birthday without birthday cards, so the team have been busy making cards to celebrate the event - here is mine.
I have used a selection of stamps, dies and papers from the Heartfelt Creations "Sweet as Honey" collection. The papers are gently distressed at the edges, with the stamped bee-fairy and house coloured in with pencils and glitter for the wings. The honeycomb is die cut from cream card then sponged with several honey-toned shades of ink.
