It's A Blog Hop!!

Hello there and a big welcome.  On December 8th The Paper Shelter will be celebrating their Fifth Birthday! In honour of that we are having a Blog Hop yay!


It's a two week challenge and both teams are taking part. The hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and we want to see your Special Birthday Cards. If you have come here from the lovely Marianne's blog then you are heading in the right direction. If not, please go over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog for a full list of all the blogs taking part. All the Design Team have worked extra hard to pull out all the stops for the Fifth Birthday Celebration.  The Paper Shelter and each blog on the hop are 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.

Here is my Special Birthday card:


I have used Harlequin which is available here. I coloured her with my Copics and then cut her out.  The card shape was made with Spellbinders Grand Nesties Circles and Scalloped Circles. The paper is First Edition Noir et Chic.  I used Spellbinders Rose Creation die and various fabrics to make the flower.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.



From here you want to hop over to the fab Sandra's blog and check out her gorgeous design. Don't forget to leave a comment on the blogs to be in with a chance of winning one of the fabulous The Paper Shelter digis!  Full details are available here on challenge blog.

Thank you so much for looking xx
