5 Years of Polkadoodleicious!! WIN £100 OF CRAFTY CANDY

Hi Polkadoodlers!!
Thankyou so much for popping along to see us today - if you are looking for the Polkadoodles Friday Challenge it's just BELOW THIS POST HERE!

The reason for our 2nd post today is because 
TODAY IS OUR FIFTH BIRTHDAY - WOOHOOO!!!
Happy Birthday to Us!! 
I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank all of you for supporting us over the past 5 years, we've seen so many changes in the industry and we still love what we do and it's so awesome that you keep on supporting us along the way, so huge thanks from Myself and Kris, but also from the Polkadoodles team too.

One thing that completely warms my heart is how I have made some wonderful, true friends along this crafty journey and I am so proud that Louise Sims and Ruth Cunliffe who were with me from day one at Polkadoodles are still here to this very day! And now of course, very very dear friends forever! 2 other people also very dear to me are Enfys Cashmore and Kath Stewart who also were on that very first team and who are still great buddies of mine - HUGE HUGE thanks to these 4 very special people who helped me get Polkadoodles off the ground way back when there were hardly any blogs around and even less blog Challenges - we've certainly seen things change along the way! And it goes without saying that the Design Team members throughout the years and the current team who are just awesome are also thanked from the bottom of my heart for all the hard work they put in for us week in, week out.

We thought we needed something special to celebrate our 5th Birthday....
So I decided to celebrate I would design a special Digistamp for each of us 5 'Originals' along with a great little paper bundle which was also designed specifically for each teamie to co-ordinate with their kind of stylee. They are TOO stinking cute!! 
So, we are inviting you along to our
mini Blog Hop 
between the 5 of us and to tempt you along we all have awesome free candy which we all have on our blogs for you, but ALSO watch out along the way as we have some fantastic free downloads up for grabs for you too along the way but you can ONLY get these by doing the hop because you need to collect the free codes!
Here's a little taster of the collections, 
this one is mine tee hee I really love me LOL!!

In addition to the candy on each of our blogs, once you've completed this little hop make sure you link to the hop on your own blog and then pop back here and leave us a link on Mr Linky IN THIS POST - (NOT the challenge post) to your own blogpost and we will draw a Random Winner to win a 
Massive blog candy worth £100 
of Polkadoodles goodies which will include Stamps, cd's, ribbons and a whole lot of other stuff! We will leave the draw date open until 30th May.

Rules to enter: 
1. You must visit and leave a comment on all 5 blog posts in the hop.
2. Add a post to your own blog with a LINK to this post so your followers can hop with us.
3. Add your post link to Mr Linky Below.
4. You must be a follower of this blog to win.
5. Closes 30th May, winner will be announced 6th June and the individual team members will also announce their winners on 6th June too (so you actually have 6 chances to win!).

So are you ready to hop? Cool! Head on over to Kath here.
