Happy Birthday to CraftySteals! (We've got party favors and games for you!)

Good morning CraftyStealers!

I know it's early in the morning, but go get yourself a piece of cake (or ice cream if you've got it!).  Today starts our celebration of a wonderful two years of steals here at!  We have a few special things in store for you, our awesome customers, to thank you for coming back over and over again and for sharing us with all of your friends and fellow crafters. 
First of all, Stephanie has put together a FABULOUS American Crafts kit for today's steal - it is filled with colorful double-sided papers and tons of embellishments from this year's Confetti line.  Get one for yourself, and you will definitely be inspired by this great collection. PLUS, if you buy today's steal, you'll also get a free gift from CraftySteals while supplies last! (Just a note: I've been playing with this steal for just a few days and have already knocked out four cards and two mini-albums - you will not believe how much is in this deal! )

Today we are also having our first ever sketch challenge! All you have to do is loosely base your card or layout on this sketch.  Then upload a photo of your challenge entry using the LinkyTools list at the bottom of this post.  We'll randomly pick one of the entries to win a suprise package of CraftySteals goodness.   Are you up for the challenge? If so, you have from now until Monday at 5:00 p.m. CST to create your own version of this simple sketch (flip it if you need to and make it your own, just keep the general idea!):

Here's a couple of cards I made using the AC Confetti steal:
So to recap what's going on at the CraftySteals 2nd birthday fiesta:
1.  Grab your American Crafts Confetti steal today (with your free gift while they last). 
2.  Go play with your stash and create away with our Birthday Challenge sketch.  When you are done, be sure to enter your photo below to win some fun CraftySteals goodies!
3.  Check back in tomorrow for another awesome birthday steal. (Because we can't have only one day of partying at, can we?)

Thanks to each and every one of you for being such wonderful customers, and for supporting  We look forward to many more years of bringing you incredible steals!

Oh, and if you need to do a little organizing, you may want to check out today's StitchSteal.  We're partying over there for's very FIRST birthday - but I warn you, you may find yourself addicted to stealing over there too...
Come join the Birthday Sketch challenge!
