The Paper Shelter 11th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop


Good morning, lovely crafters! Welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop, in celebration of The Paper Shelter's 11th Birthday on December 8th.  This will be a two week challenge, with both Design Teams taking part.

The theme for this special challenge is:  CELEBRATIONS

For my card, I used the darling "Shopping Girl" image.  I wanted to create something different so I found this wonderful free alarm clock image from PNG Logos which I thought would compliment the image perfectly.  


I used a combination of Copic markers and Polychromos pencils to colour this adorable image.  I cut the sentiment twice and offset it for added dimension and interest.

If you have arrived here from Julie R's blog, then you are heading in the right direction.  If not, then you will want to pop back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog because you do not want to miss out on this one.

As I mentioned, both Design Teams are participating, showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter.  Moreover, 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.

From here, you will need to hop over to Sammy Jean's blog.  Do not forget to leave your comment for an opportunity to win your choice of one of the fabulous digis available in store.

Good luck, and I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far.  I wish you a lovely day.  Hugs, Lori xx
