CRAFT challenge Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping by this is the first time I've been part of a blog hop, hope you are all having fun!!

This week at CRAFT Challenge we are celebrating our 2nd Blogaversary in style. Our challenge on the main blog Happy Birthday! (to Us) to fit in with this celebration.

To celebrate we will also be doing a Blogaversary Blog Hop with many sponsors and prizes on the way. To be in with having a chance of winning these prizes, you will need to leave a comment on our (G)DT's blogs, a winner will be chosen randomly at each stop.
We will also leave a word at each stop, with which we would like you to form a sentence. So, don't forget to collect a word on each stop as well! After you have collected all these words, form a sentence with them and enter your sentence in a comment on our CRAFT Challenge blog. We will obviously not allow comments to be posted during this week to stop any cheating, lol!
You should have started at CRAFT Challenge and come from Nikki's blog. If you did not, please go back to the stops before you have so far not passed.
My word is: ribbon

My sponsor for the blog hop is The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs, and the prize you can win on my stop is 3 digi's of choice from her shop.

Just as a reminder, here is your route to follow. You should start and end at the CRAFT Challenge blog.

So, join in with us this week to be in with a chance of many prizes and we hope you enjoy the journey!

Here's my DT card for our birthday challenge using images from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs
I've used two Crafty Pad images: Fairy Chloe on Mushroom

And: Fairy bling happy birthday circle
Recipe: The fairy was coloured in with Promarkers, the papers are from a Echo park paper pad called Springtime, I've used some candi, flowers (Hobbyhouse), punched leaves, pins (Bee Crafty), a MS border punch and the lace die cut shape is from a friend. I've also used some Distress inks, Stickles glitter, flower sequins and heart ribbon.

Thanks for joining in our blog hop.

Your next stop is Tigerlover. Don't forget to leave a comment if you want to have a chance of winning the prize on my stop!!
