Welcome to The Paper Shelter Special Birthday Blog Hop


Good Morning all

Greetings from me -still in sunny Florida and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop 


This is our celebration of The Paper Shelters 3rd Birthday on December 8th.  As well as the blog hop It is also a two week Challenge and both Design Teams are taking part.






The Hop is our celebration of three years of fabulous digis from Veronica and Pedro the most generous owners of The Paper Shelter and also our way of saying thank you to our loyal followers for supporting our challenge each week.  
The theme is a  "Special Birthday" which I know is an easy one - I don't know anyone who doesn't have a birthday card to make .... So make it special!!!

If you have landed here from Anna's blog then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll need to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to check on the order - as you'll not want to miss out on this one!  The next stop after this one is Lydia's blog.

Our Wonderful Design Team have worked so hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter Shop.  Not only is there a fab prize for the main blog hop winner but each blog on the hop is also offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice -  how fab is that!  Full details are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.

Here is my card using one of the gorgeous new digis we've had lately

She's called Autumn Attitude and is available here
She really is so beautiful
- it wasn't until I started to colour her that I realised what a beautiful face she has




This is what I did....

Image - Autumn Attitudefrom The Paper Shelter
Coloured with copics and prisma colour pencils
Papers -MME 
Sentiment tags - LOTV
Corner - reflections from Michaels
Ricardo ribbon - crafty ribbons
Butterfly - from my stash
Die cut oval - spellbinders
Distress inks - Tim Holtz  tea die and winter spruce

From here remember you will need to hop on over to Lydia -http://scrappenbylydia.blogspot.co.uk/- Don't forget to leave your comment here on my blob for your chance to win your choice of one of the fab digis available in store.
Hop! Hop! Hop!
Good luck and hope you're enjoying the hop so far.
