Summer is here at the Paper Shelter!

Good morning all

Hope it's still bright and sunny in your little corner of the world - we're still having lovely warm days and I've been able to walk about 5 miles a day with the dog (with a coffee stop!) almost every day.

I also got my lovely new car yesterday - I just love it - but I've pulled a muscle in my wrist pulling the hand brake on!! it's a different shape to the one in my last car - my DH says I'm not safe to be let out - maybe I should just stay in and craft instead : )

I'm here with my first post of the day to tell you about our challenge this week at

Our theme this week is 


I chose to use this cute little sailor girl - one of the newer digis

The sunshine is really is certainly taking me away from my crafting somewhat! Long walks with coffee stops sounds absolutely wonderful :-)

Your CAS design is fab and certainly showcases the sailor girl perfectly...and your lovely colouring!
