Challenges #255 - Happy Birthday!!

Hello MDUC friends and welcome to our 6th birthday challenge.

Before we begin today, we have an announcement.

This will be our last challenge. 

It is with great sadness that we bid you all farewell. MDUC has been running for 6 years and finally, the day has come where we must say goodbye. We have been here together for such a long time.
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and it is finally, our turn.

This decision was not an easy one to make.

We ask that you celebrate with us for making it to our 6th birthday by participating on our final challenge. 

We would love to thank our sponsors for looking after us and you.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to our Design Team, present and past.
Without you, this challenge could not have been the success it was for so long. Many friendships have been made here and we hold each one in our hearts.
We thank you for your friendship and commitment.

To our participants - thank you so much for joining us. It has been a pleasure crafting along side you all. Seeing new crafters joining us challenge after challenge, and also the favourites who always come back.

Our sponsor for this, our last challenge, is

Live and Love Crafts!
