Creative Card Crew #46 - Celebrate! ... and DT candy!!


Good morning everyone, and welcome once more to the Creative Card Crew Challenge. This is a very special week for us, as CCC is on year old - yay! So it's

Happy birthday to CCC :-)

So this fortnight we have got the perfect theme in honour of the occasion .... yes, we would like you to

Celebrate!

You can interpret this theme however you like ... perhaps you would like to create a project to celebrate a birthday, friendship, Mother's Day, wedding, anniversary ... the list is endless :-)

And to help us get into the party spirit, boy do we have some fantastic prizes for you! Not just one, but FOUR prizes for lucky entrants .... I think the DT all wish they could enter too lol!! Feast your eyes on this little lot ......

1. A $20 gift certificate from


2. 3 digi images of your choice from

3. A fab prize from Nichola at

which is these 2 darling stamps




4. Last but not least, a one month GDT spot on the Creative Card Crew Challenge :-)

AND that's not all ......

We are also celebrating with

DT candy!

Most of the DT members are celebrating by offering a little candy for entrants to this fortnight's challenge ... if you want to be in it to win it, here's what you need to do ....

- Enter a project for this fortnight's challenge, using Mr Linky on the Creative Card Crew Challenge blog in the usual way.
- Visit each of the DT member blogs (you may like to show a little love for their fabulous cards whilst you're there :-))
- If you would like to enter for a particular candy, leave a comment according to each DT member's instructions
- Cross your fingers and wait for the winners to be announced after this fortnight's challenge is finished!

I am offering the following candy :

3 Lili of the Valley stamps
INCLUDING
2 from the new release due out 10th March!!

In order to enter for this all you need to do is leave me a link in Mr Linky directly to the project you have entered in this fortnight's challenge (please make it direct to your post, not to the whole blog). One entry only for my candy please so as to make it fair for everyone !! I haven't used Mr Linky before, so if he should take a holiday, please just leave me a comment with a direct link to your card and I will include you in the draw :-)

Update: please ensure that if you are entering for my blog candy that you have entered your card in this week's CCC Challenge and that it is a NEW project - any backlinks or projects not entered in this week's challenge are ineligible and I will delete the entries from Mr Linky so as to be fair for challenge entrants - thanks.

If you would like to leave me a comment about my card as well please feel free ;-) I will choose a winner randomly at the end of the challenge.

Don't forget to visit the rest of the DT's blogs to see their fab cards and find out what gorgeous candy they have got on offer.

  37. Pauline

    Congratulations on the Creative Card Crew Challenge Birthday. I know I haven’t participated every time but I have enjoyed seeing the lovely creations you have all made.

    I did post my card last night and tried to do the blog hop but no matter what I did I couldn’t get into the blogs and therefore had to give up and try again tonight. Hope I’m successful this time!!!

    The card you have made for the Celebrations challenge is lovely. I like the Penny Black characters as well. I haven't got many but hope to expand one day.

    Here is my card for this challenge

    Best wishes
