Happy Anniversary!

In June of 2008 the Die Cut Diva's Flickr group was born,  founded by Linda Regenboog, offering you monthly challenges, by 3 of our hostesses, Paula, Dawn, and Arlene,  each month they put up their time, effort, and money, to give hand picked prizes which they shipped all over the world to the lucky winner of the month.
In 2009 I joined as the 4th hostess and became part of the group,  finally in  August of 2010 our blog was born, and up till February of 2013 it was just a place where we shared random tips and some inspiration.

Nearing the end of 2012 we decided the blog wasn't worth having if we weren't going to keep up with it, so we talked and planned, and decided in order to keep it up we needed to move our challenges to the blog.  Behind the scenes, the blog was revamped and given a new image until it was ready to open in February of 2013.  Among all the changes, we looked into getting sponsors in order to be able to offer you bigger and better prizes from many of the much loved crafting sources, as well as introducing you to new ones, as we were still working on sponsorship.
February wasn't only a starting point for new things but also the end of  prizes offered from within the hostesses pocket books.
With a great start in February 2013, by March we had our first sponsor who was none other then the much loved Hero Arts, which is how we all met and got together in the first place, to bring you the Die Cut Divas.
 So without further ado we just wanted to thank each and everyone of our followers and those of you who have been with us from the beginning,  So happy 1st Bloggaversary!
And Thank you for all your support, your lovely entries, comments, and help in spreading the word making us what we are today, without you this couldn't have been such a wonderful place.
