Follow us on Facebook !!

Hi ladies !! I have recently being "liking" various craft facebook pages and really enjoyed getting to know the people behind the blogs and companies. I thought ........ and I know thinking can be dangerous !!lol !!! I thought it would be a great thing for us here at FF & co challenge blog to do the same !!!

So........... we would love you to "like" us and get to know us !! There will be sneak peaks into challenges and giveaways; a bit about team members and GDT and we would love you to talk to us !! Post your ff cards so we can see them !! We often make cards that aren't related to a challenge but would love to share them !!!

If we get to 100 "likes" I have a give away for a randomly chosen person (using random.org) who "likes" us !


This was kindly given to us by one of our DT. She had two copies !! She got from Docrafts for purchasing a certain value of goods. It is a genuine copy but is not in a box, its in a plastic sleeve and had never been used. Thanks Sue you're so kind!!

Happy crafting !! Liz
