Striker.....Crafting For All Seasons #27 Buttons & A Birthday Blog Hop

Afternoon! sorry not been around much... it's probably going to be like this for another couple of weeks until the house is back in some sort of order. At least bathroom is now being tiled so just kitchen to finish!!

Anyhow it's time for another challenge over at Crafting For All Seasons and this week it's a special one... It's our first birthday!! Our theme this fortnight is
“It’s a Celebration” with buttons
As it’s our first birthday we are having a blog hop to celebrate. The hop begins and ends on the challenge blog. If you have arrived from Jani's blog you’re on the right track, if you are just popping by to say hello you may want to pop over to the challenge to join in the whole hop.
At each blog you’ll find a letter, once you have collected them all leave a comment on the challenge post telling us which word the letters spell. You must leave a comment on each blog as you hop and one commenter on each of the blogs will win a prize, my prize is a selection of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

and my letter is:
So here is my creation for this weeks challenge....

It's now time to pop over to Lizy's blog to carry on the hop. If you get lost along the way you'll find a full list for the hop on the challenge post. Enjoy!
