The Crafter's Companion Birthday Blog Hop


Welcome to The Crafter’s Companion Birthday Blog Hop



I'm so happy you could join us and hop along today. We are celebrating Crafter's Companion's birthday with this fun hop. The blog hop starts today August 6th and ends at midnight pst on August 10th. 


There is going to be an awesome prize that you will definitely want to try to win so let's get started.

First you need to be a follower of my blog and of the Crafter's Companion informational blog. You must be a US Resident, leave a comment on this post AND find the "secret" letter on each design team member's blog that spells out a "secret" phrase.

**My letter is "e".**

When you have all the letters for the phrase, you will then email the phrase to Bindy at bindy@crafterscompanion.com. When the hop is over Bindy will use Random Generator to pick the grand prize winner. And what is that grand prize you ask?!!

How about a $100 gift card to the Crafter's Companion online store!!! WOO HOO!!

 If you came here from Chrissie's blog then you are on the right track if not you might want to start at the beginning on Carolyn's blog.

To interest you along the way, I made a card using "Popcorn the Bear Party Time".  My image is colored using the Spectrum Noir markers. These are some really great markers at a really great price.  Check out the whole range of colors.....

 I added a banner that says "Party" across the top of my card. I also dug out my bright partying color cardstock.  Love this bright green.....

 And my finished card:


I have a giveaway on my personal blog too so be sure and follow me and leave a comment while you are here. I will draw a random winner for my personal blog giveaway and post the winner's name on August 11th. Here is what someone will win just for visiting me today...the Popcorn the Bear - Party Time stamp set!!


Here is a list of the DT you will need to visit on this hop:
Dawn Lotharius http://www.dawnscraft.com/ 
Now you need to head to see Dawn L. Good luck and have fun!!
Again the letter you need to collect from me is "e".......

Don't forget to collect all the letters and create the phrase in order to win the awesome prize mentioned above.



Thanks for stopping by.
