Hello there and a big welcome to my blog.  Today is the last challenge of the year for The Paper Shelter.  This challenge will last three weeks and we will be back on 7th January. In order to give the DT a break there will be no commenting on this challenge.  We will also be back again either later today or tomorrow with the winners from the Celebrations Blog Hop so please check back!  Here is my last card of the year for The Paper Shelter:


I have used the beautiful The Lantern which is available here.  I coloured the image with my Copics which took quite a while and then disaster struck!! I managed to smudge some ink on the background.  After spending quite a while colouring I didn't really want it to end up in the bin so I decided to cover it with Stickles - adapt and overcome!  The image has been cut out with a Spellbinders ornament die and the top is a Memory Box in mirri card to look like metal.  I used my Memory Box Merry Christmas die which I really love but sadly have only used once!


As usual there is a fabulous prize up for the lucky winner:


I would like to take this opportunity to thank Veronica, Shirley and Marie for all their help and support over the last year and wish them and my fellow team mates a very Happy Christmas and wonderful New Year.

Challenges I would like to enter:



Well I am finalising my Christmas menus today and perhaps doing a bit of shopping (food) and cooking for the freezer. I hope you have a wonderful day whatever you are doing and a big thank you for all the lovely comments you leave,
