Time Out Challenges 3rd Birthday Celebration

Hello All

I am very excited today as it is 3 years since Nonni and I started our challenge blog Time Out. To celebrate we are having a party over on our blog here.

I want to thank you all for supporting us over the last 3 years. We have had a lot of fun and hope you have too.

I want to thank our present and past Design Team for their hard work and continual inspiration.

Our challenge theme is:

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

Here is my card using all CAS-ual Friday Stamps-one of our many sponsors (check out the graphic at the end of my post)

I had to use my fav colour combo for our Birthday. 

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Ardyth. I have for a long time admired Ardyth's card making excellence. She is a major inspiration for me and I am over the moon that she is joining us for our Birthday.

We have lots of prizes for you to win-check out our blog for details.

We are very honoured that so many wonderful companies are supporting us and offering up an amazing set of prizes. This graphic here shows all these wonderful sponsors:

Plus these sponsors below are joining us with a party on their own blogs-here are the links:

Please go and check out their parties. There will be lots of inspiration for you.

Our Design Team and Ardyth have made some fabulous cards to celebrate our party-check them out here.

Time to take some TIME OUT and join us in celebrating 3 years xx

I will enter this into:
