Happy Birthday CCCB and Blog Hop

Hello and good morning to you all ... 
Today we at City Crafter Challenge  are celebrating our first birthday ... and you are all invited to join in with us ...  There are 6 prizes on offer this week ...  The DT and our Guest Designer will each be giving away a $10 gift certificate for Pixie Dust Paperie  in a blog hop! 
All you have to do is follow the list leaving a comment on each of our posts starting at CCCB and then hop over to the next blog in the list and leave a comment there ... each of us will pick a lucky winner from our list of comments ... 
Plus there will also be a prize for the winner of this weeks' challenge at City Crafter Challenge ... 

Our guest designer this week is the very talented Sylvia Nelson aka Sylvia's Stamping Corner ... who made this lovely card for our birthday 




and the challenge is to CASE this card  ... you can pick out the colours ... the shape or the embellishments to make your card or project ... but it must be a Happy Birthday theme ...  
This is my take ...



As we are often taken to different cities by our creator Kirsty ... I just had to stamp some of those cities onto my background paper ... and though my 'cake' hides some of them, there are London, Paris, Rome
and New York ... 



I added lots of lace, glitter and flowers to my cake which I cut out of CS and covered with MF paper and even added a real candle ... the cake was adhered with foam pads to give it some definition ...

Now here is the list for you to follow ... don't forget to visit each blog and leave a comment for your chance to win

                  Ros ... (that's me)

I really hope you will celebrate with us this week ... We really appreciate each and every one of you who has played along with us this last year ... I have had a wonderful time being on the DT ... many thanks to Kirsty and also to Linda and Cheryl ... they are all just the nicest, sweetest people to work with

Have a wonderful day ... see you at the party!
