Is there such a word as commenter?  It doesn't look right somehow lol.  Anyway, the winner for leaving a comment on my blog is LENA SCRAPPAR.  Congrats Lena.  Please go to the main PAPER SHELTER blog to find out how to claim your free Paper Shelter image.

While I'm about it, I'm sorry there's no Promarker card from me this week, but I've been a tad poorly and that's why my Paper Shelter card is late.  It was made in time, but I just wasn't up to blogging.  The challenge is for 3 weeks with an anything goes theme, so if you're not too busy (or too drunk ha ha) why not join in.

Anyway, I'm off to Cyprus on Saturday to spend Christmas with my grand-babies, so I'll see you all next year.  Have a wonderful Christmas everybody.

Two post Wednesday from me again, so here I am with my 2nd post.  It's challenge #197 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS this week and our theme is 'For A Child'. We have a great sponsor this week and that's MARIANNE DESIGN with some lovely stamps for our prize. (If you're looking for the Paper Shelter blog hop, scroll down to the previous post).

I seem to have a thing this week for not using any paper, and didn't even realize until just now, lol. Coincidentally, this is a Paper Shelter image too.  Isn't it just adorable.  I knew when I decided to use it that I wanted to go CAS and use a DL card size.  The clock die is from Marianne.  So that's pretty much it I reckon.  A coloured image and a clock, lol.  The font I used is called Annie BTN.  I think it's just perfect for kiddies cards.

Entering into:
ADDICTED TO STAMPS & MORE #74 - Clean and Simple.
CRAFTY CREATIONS #251 - Anything except Christmas.
FAN-TASTIC TUESDAY  #12 - Clean and Simple. WINNER
613 AVENUE CREATE #48 - Anything goes.
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - Anything goes with optional CAS.
MAKE IT MONDAY #169 - Anything goes.
SCRIBBLE & SCRAP #6 - Anything goes.


Good morning everybody.  Welcome to THE PAPER SHELTER blog hop.  We're having this to celebrate their 3rd birthday on 8th December.  It will be a two week challenge and both design teams are taking part. You will find the order to hop in at the bottom of this post.  Each teamies name is a link to their blog.

The Hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and the theme is 'Special Birthday'. If you have landed here from Eva's blog, then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll need to head on back to The Paper Shelter to start again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one! Our Design Teams have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter Website 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 you'll find over at the main challenge blog.

For my card I chose to use this adorable image called 'Sophie in the Country' and she's available to buy HERE.

I did something I've never done before for this card and that's to use a stencil and no paper whatsoever. Sophie is coloured with Promarkers and then I fussy cut her and mounted her on foam pads in front of the scene.  I added three paper roses to her fence and one to her hat to finish off.  Got to be honest though, I'm not sure if I'll be using a stencil again, lol.  Oh yeah, forgot..the stencil is made by Imagination Crafts.

So, onwards with your journey. From here you will need to hop on over to Merkhari's blog.  Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fab digis available in store.
Hop! Hop! Hop!
Good luck and I hope you're enjoying it so far.
