City Crafter - Bitter sweet

Hello ... Thanks so much for stopping by ... 
This is a very Special week for City Crafter Challenge Blog and it is bitter sweet


Today we are celebrating City Crafter's 3rd Birthday!

We also have a new member on the design team ... Wendy! You all know she has been guest designing for us for a while now and we are thrilled that she is joining the team! Welcome Wendy!

Sadly it that means that we are losing our lovely Linda Robinson ... 
Linda is off to pursue a lifelong dream of that and her "honey" which is to hit the road and make her trailer her home at least for the next year ... We are really going to miss her ...
"My dear sweet friend I wish you all the happiness in the world ... stay safe ... much love..."

Now the challenge this week also includes a blog hop ... this is the order of the hop 

Ros (me)

It is very important that you follow the order ... Why? because this week we have 7 prizes to give away!
In each one of our challenge posts ... there will be a word highlighted - 5 words in total and put together in the correct order they will make a sentence ... email the sentence to CCCB and Kirsty will pick a winner who will receive a prize ...


Each designer will also be giving a prize away to someone picked from those who leave a comment on their blog
And finally there is a prize for the challenge winner! 


Ok ... onto the challenge ... which is to Make A Birthday Card 

Can you believe we are celebrating 3 years??
I am so lucky to be a part of this team and this is my card ...


It's going to a blog friend who also celebrates her birthday this week


I used Aida fabric to make a flower and also to set my washi tape butterfly on


I just love these colours
And here is my give away  ...


Just leave me a comment and I will pick a winner at the end of the challenge

Don't forget to follow the blog hop starting at CCCB 

Good Luck!!

See you tomorrow

~ Ros ~

Your card is pretty as a picture and so professional-looking as always.
Why is my work always so messy?
I suppose you have tidier brainwaves than mine.
