THE PAPER SHELTER 2019 BLOG HOP!

Good Morning crafters!

Welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop, in celebration of The Paper Shelter's 9th birthday on the 8th of December!  This will be a two week challenge, and both Design Teams will be taking part.


The hop is our way of inviting you to celebrate with us and our theme for the challenge is

BIRTHDAY / CELEBRATIONS

which I know is extremely popular!

If you've arrived here from Audrey's blog, then you're heading in the right direction!  If not, then you'll want to head back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, as you don't want to miss out on this one.  Both Design Teams have worked very hard and are 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.



I used a gorgeous image called Eyes of Nature. She is coloured with Copics. My papers are from the Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy paper pack. 

I used a floral Martha Stewart border punch. The sentiment is part of the Marianne Design "Sending Birthday Wishes" stamp set.  The 9 is by American Crafts and stuck onto a die cut frame by Nellie Snellen Cameo Dies. 



My image is cut out with a Wonky Stitches circle die. I added a variety of beaded flowers and swirls and gems.  



From here you will need to hop on over to Vannessa's blog.  Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance to win your choice of one of the fab digis available in store.

Hop!  Hop!  Hop!

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