Challenge #232 Happy 9th Birthday Time Out!

If you saw our earlier post: we were able to get this post  up sooner than we though, even with the technical issues we were facing. Yay for that! 

Happy Birthday Time Out!

The next fortnight we are celebrating our 9th birthday with a nice and easy "Anything Birthday Goes" theme! We are very happy to have Newton's Nook sponsoring us with a generous $25 gift voucher to our winner. 

To make our celebration even more special we have Time Out co-founder and long time leader Sandie joining us as Special Guest! Sandie and Nonni established this challenge back in 2014. Time Out is a result of what begun as an online crafty friendship and developed into what we know will be a life long relationship. 

A big thank you to Sandie for being the main leader of Time Out all the way until May 2021.

HERE's Sandie's gorgeous card for us:

We of course also have a guest designer! This time it's Hannelie from Desert Diva. Hannelie makes the most amazing CAS cards and is a regular player here at Time Out. 

Here is a bit about Hannelie in her own words:

"Hi, my name is Hannelie Bester, I am a South-African living in the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi) for the last 15 years. We moved to the UAE because of a job opportunity that was offered to my husband.

I’ve been making cards for many years, but I started blogging soon after we moved here... hence the title of my blog!

Living so far away from my loved ones, made me realize just how much I love them. Card making helps me cope with being far away from home, and challenges my right brain, since I am a left-brained, logical and analytical pharmacist at heart. 

Clean, simple & graphic would be a good description of my card making style."

Time Out Design Team is the core of this challenge! We are very grateful to have this talented group of crafters providing inspiration for us challenge after challenge. Congratulations to everyone on the team.  Happy Birthday to Us!
