Good morning to you all! Nice and sunny here in Blackpool today1  Wednesday sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and this week is Team A's turn which means me!  The theme for the challenge this week is Charming so we need to see a charm on your creation! Here is mine:

I know I keep saying it but I love colouring in Paper Shelter images! I have used the adorable Faery Emma and she is available here from the Paper Shelter.  I have coloured her with my Copics and the paper is Nitwits Possibilities.  I have added Glamour Dust to her wings, not sure if you can see it though! The filigree corner and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Dies used are Cheery Lynn Anastasia Border and Tags 2.  I have used a Tonic corner rounder punch.  The sentiment is Pink Petticoat.  The ribbon, twine and button are from The Ribbon Girl and charm and heart are from my stash. I also scored the linen card at the bottom but it doesn't really show up in this photo!

Our prize this week is:

so you don't have to use a Paper Shelter image but if you do then you could win a $30 voucher for The Paper Shelter with another image you will win 3 images from The Paper Shelter.

Please go over to the challenge and see what lovely creations the A Team have made!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Flower Power
Everybody Art - Flowers
Flourishes - Butterflies
Sweet Stamps - Anything goes with Sweet Cuts or Cheery Lynn dies
Incy Wincy - Use Something Metal
My Craft Spot - Ribbon and Twine
Songbird Challenge - Bloom and Grow
Victorine - Buttons and Bows
The Ribbon Girl - May Colour Challenge

I am so happy because I found my La La Land die - it was in a big box of scraps that I keep by me for the recycling bin - the last place I had to look!!  I am off to the garden centre today to get my bedding plants for all my pots - always a mammoth task!  Thanks for coming by today I really appreciate it! See you tomorrow, take care xx
