Happy Birthday to US!!! Challenge 79.

It's our Birthday!   We are three years old!  Can you believe it?  Wow, those three years have just flown past!

Before we get to the celebrations, we need to let you know the results of our last challenge to create a card or project for a guy, with an appropriate sentiment!

Top 5, in no particular order were....






Congratulations all - don't forget your badge!

So, onto our birthday fun - we are having a blog hop (as well as our regular challenge) and so hope you will join us!  We have got three fabulous sponsors this time round (one for each year!!).

Robyn's Fetish who offer a fabulous range of digital stamps - an incredible mixture of styles and designs.


Stamp and Create who are an online store based in the US with worldwide shipping. They specialize in Rubber Stamps including Magnolia, Whimsy Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, and many, many more at the lowest prices around!


My Heart Pieces who create such gorgeous images, some of which are really unusual and just can't be found elsewhere!

"How do we win?" I hear you cry. Well there are two ways to win:

1.  Follow the blog hop - each comment you leave entitles you to one entry - so the more comments you leave, the more entries you get (only one comment per blog please!).

2.  Create a card or project with a suitable BIRTHDAY SENTIMENT on it and enter our challenge as usual.  We will be picking two winners from all the entries.

Here is the all-important Blog Hop order....

Start here!      
Ginny    
Helen  
Julie   
Kym     
Laura   
Mel      
Ruthie 
Sandra   
Valou   

....and then you can pop back and see us here and leave a comment for us.  

Don't forget to enter our challenge as well! The challenge runs until 7th May - gosh, time really IS flying!

For this challenge we are so excited to have Bugaboo as our sponsor. Thanks so much!


Here is a little bit about them...


"I have been designing graphics for 9 years, mostly for those who digitize, and now venturing into this new idea of digi stamps.   I love to draw and love to see where my designs go and how they are used.   I find making people smile with my graphics very rewarding!  For many many years I drew mostly cutesy kids graphics, a lot of which you’ll find on my site.  But my latest passion is my cranky old boots....
Stella ,Gus, Margaret and the Gals who came after them.
I just LOVE to create them and they seem to be a favorite!
What else can I say? 
The name Bugaboo Stamps...how did I come up with it?
Well...... Bugaboo is a nickname i have for my kids sometimes."

OK, now onto the challenge. We want to see a card or project for a man - with an appropriate sentiment....
