Craft-Room Birthday Hop

Wow - the first 12 months of our challenge have passed in a flash. We've had some changes along the way,  met so many fantastic crafters and seen such stunning work, and I have so enjoyed being part of it and working with such a great team.

We decided to celebrate with a blog hop as is quite traditional in these situations and there are lots of prizes to be won! We are joined by one of our Wonderful sponsors, Liz Welch of Rarebird, who has donated the main prize of a Bend it Shape it DVD.To be in with a chance of winning this fab prize you need to visit each team member in turn and answer the questions in our posts. 

You should have started at the Craft Room Challenge site and after a couple of hops got here from Nikki, your next stop is MariaDo not leave the answer to the question in your comment on here !  Collect all your answers and send them in an email to Zoe (Zoechaos). The winner of the main prize will be selected at random from all the correct entries Zoe receives. 

 My question is - Who manufactures the 'Distress' range of inks, stains and recently launched pens to match ? (NB The answer is NOT Tim Holtz!).

We also each have a prize  to be won by someone picked at random from everyone who leaves us a comment on our blogs.  I have this pretty wood mounted Penny Black Stamp to give away -
Of course we also have our regular challenge with a mystery prize from Julia...and the theme has to be Birthday's of course.   Make a card or anything Birthday related and share with us. Here is what I did - 
   With the long awaited arrival of summer I was in a soft, floral mood so used three shades of Rangers Distress Inks with a couple of Stamp Addicts stamps, added some crystal stickles, some net , a button and was done. I love the colour combination of chocolate and pink! 

I really hope you share in our celebrations and happy Hopping….Esther xx
