Anything goes - The Paper shelter Christmas Break challenge

Morning all,

Time for the final challenge of the year over at The Paper Shelter, and there's no excuse for not playing along, as the theme is Anything Goes!

I decided to take a little break from Christmas crafting, and made a card with a digi I've been itching to use since I first saw it.


This fella can be found under the name A Well-kept Garden. Isn't he fab? For some reason he reminds me of my dad a little, lol!


So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

 




Hope you have a fantabulous day!

The Paper Shelter Birthday Bloghop!

 



 Good Morning lovely crafters!

Welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop, in celebration of The Paper Shelter's 11th Birthday on the 8th of December!  This will be a two week challenge, with both teams taking part, and it's our way of thanking The Paper Shelter for sharing their wonderful images with us, and sponsoring our challenge.



The theme for this special challenge is:

CELEBRATIONS

If you've arrived here from Lori, then you're heading in the right direction!  If not, then you'll want to pop back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, because you don't want to miss out on this one.  Both Design Teams are participating, showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter, and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice, as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.

For my card I used the sweet A Fairy's Best Friend, which I matched with some pretty fresh-looking papers and coloured to match. A few dies provided some extra elements to add interest.

From here, you will need to hop on over to Susan.  Don't forget to leave your comment for an opportunity to win your choice of one of the fabulous digis available in store!

Good Luck!  Hope you've enjoyed the Hop so far!

A Christmas Card - The Paper Shelter

 Morning all,

New challenge time over at The Paper Shelter, and this week we're getting ready for Christmas! so dig out your Santas and snowmen, and make A Christmas Card to share with us!

I decided to play with the super cute I wonder what this is for my card, and matched it with some festive papers.



This digi does make me chuckle. I've started wrapping Christmas pressies as they're coming in, and earlier I caught my daughter nosing through the box of wrapped presents to see which ones were for her. She may be almost 22, but some things don't change! :D


So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

 




Hope you have a fantabulous day!

Bookmark - The Paper Shelter

 Morning all!

New challenge time over at The Paper Shelter, and this week we're looking for bookmarks!

Now I pretty much always have my nose in a book (and if my hands are full, I'll have an audio book playing instead!), so bookmarks are essential for me.

I decided to play with the fab Pastel Goth for this one, and got messy with my Distress Inks!

I thought she was the perfect kind of image to use for this kind of thing, as it's not a very wide one, which leaves plenty of space for a funky sentiment!

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

 




Hope you have a fantabulous day!

Use red - Sweet Stampin'

 Morning all!

There's a new challenge starting at Sweet Stampin', and this week we're asking you to use red on your creations.

I thought that was a great excuse to get started on my Christmas cards!


I had loads of fun stamping, colouring and fussy-cutting the carriages to make a toy train for Santa! I also really love the striped ribbon, which has a permanent home in my Christmas crafts box, as it's perfect for using on festive cards!

It was also rather fun to make a DL card, which is something I never do. It's so easy to fall into making the same size/shape over and over again, so doing something different definitely helps keep things fun!

Now it's over to you guys! Go see what lovely read creations my fellow Sweeties have put together for you over on the blog, then come and play along!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

Hallowe'en - The Paper Shelter

 Morning all!

It's that time of year again... this week we're looking for your Hallowe'en makes again.

It was a perfect excuse to play with the adorable Cute Witch digi!


Isn't she fab? I also dug out some Hallowe'en papers and a fab glass-domed owl embellishment to bling up the black ribbon.

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

 




Hope you have a fantabulous day!

2 colours - The Paper Shelter

 Morning all, yep, time for another challenge over at The Paper Shelter. This week the theme is 2 colours.

I chose the sweet Stylish Flirting digi, and had some fun with my duo-tone creation.


I decided on blue and a beige/sandstone colour that worked very well with some pretty 13@rts papers I had to hand. Some ribbon and heart-shaped bling later and I had a completed card with a colour scheme I am really happy with. I may remember this when re-decorating my bedroom soon!


So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

 




Hope you have a fantabulous day!
