Time Out's 3rd Birthday Party!

Hello All,

You ready to party?

We hope so because today we are 3 years old!

Yes, you did hear right. We have been taking TIME OUT to craft with you all for 3 years now.

We have had a lot of fun and hope you have too. We want to thank you all for your support for TIME OUT. Without you, we would not be here. It has been a blast visiting your blogs and seeing the amazing creativity within our community. Each and every challenge we are astounded by every entry.

A huge thank you must also go to our present and past Design Team members, many of whom have been with us since day one. Nonni and I thank you all so much for your support, hard work and continual inspiration. We feel blessed to have such an amazing team to craft with.

We want to spread our love and friendship for you all and so the challenge theme for our Birthday is:

Love and/or Friendship with the optional twist of 'spotlight stamping' where you add colour only to one raised area of your image

As we are having a bit of a party we have quite a few prizes up for grabs. We will have prizes for all our winners chosen by the DT, plus prizes for 3 randomly selected winners from those who twists with get those colouring skills brushed off!

We have all these fabulous sponsors offering up super prizes:

We are over the moon that our Guest Designer for this challenge is one of the creative stars in our community, Ardyth.

I am sure most of you know Ardyth but if not I urge you to visit her blog MASKerade. Her clean, graphic and bold style will astound you, I guarantee. Plus she is now experimenting more with water colours and, wouldn't you know, she is rocking this style too! We are so lucky to have such a super star joining us for our 3rd Birthday.

Lets see what Arydth and the DT have made to inspire us:
