It's Tea Time! by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hello lovely crafters!  Welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop, in celebration of The Paper Shelter's 13th birthday today.  What an accomplishment!

This will be a two week challenge, with both teams taking part, and it is our way of thanking The Paper Shelter for sharing their wonderful images with us, and sponsoring our challenge.

The theme for this special challenge is:


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

Both Design Teams are participating, 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.

My DT card features the gorgeous It's Tea Time! by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps. I coloured it with Copic markers.   From here, you will need to hop over to not forget to leave your comment for an opportunity to win your choice of one of the fabulous digis available in the store.

Thank you for visiting.  Good luck!  Hope you have enjoyed the Hop so far.  Hugs, Lori xx
