CRAFT Challenge Blog Hop - Sharon's Stop

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 4 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?

CRAFT challenge Stitch DT card

 The next challenge over at CRAFT challlenge is stitching.
MY PC in driving me crazy so a quick post to show you my DT card before I dash off to work.
You can find all the details of the challenge here.

 For my card I used a LOTV image and paper. I've done some faux stitching on the layer with the image and spotty paper.
