12th Birthday Blog Hop at The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafty Peeps!

Welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop, in celebration of The Paper Shelter's 12th Birthday on the 8th of December!  This will be a two week challenge, with both teams taking part, and it's 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:

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS

I have made a layered birthday card using 'Kittens In The Snow'


So often snowy images get used only for Christmas cards, so I thought it would be good to use one for something different.

Products used:
  • Card blank
  • Coloured cardstock
  • Snowflake corner die-cuts
  • Oval die
  • Stickles - Glisten
  • Posca Paint Pen - White
  • ProMarkers - Cloud Blue, Sky Blue, Satin, Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Black, Cool Grey 5, Cool Grey 1-3, Coral, Indigo Blue, Royal Blue, True Blue, Azure, Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Warm Grey 1-3, Holly & Lush Green
  • Prismacolor Pencils - Pink, White & Dark Green

If you've arrived here from Natascha, then you're heading in the right direction!  If not, then you'll want to pop back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, because you don't 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.

From here, you will need to hop on over to Patsy.  Don't forget to leave your comment for an opportunity to win your choice of one of the fabulous digis available in store!

'Tis The Season

Hello Crafty Peeps,

It's December already and I'm still making Christmas cards! I couldn't resist the cute pixies from Sweet November Stamps. 'Christmas Pixie Chrissy' and 'Christmas Pixie Nicholas' go so well together I think.

I've been doing everything with traditional colours lately, so I wanted to change it up and go for non-traditional this time.


I decided to give them matching outfit colours for a more cohesive theme. I think this is the first time I've used this combo!


Thanks for stopping by today, your kind comments mean the world to me.

Special Birthday Wishes at The Paper Shelter

Hello Crafty Peeps, 

We have a special challenge for you at The Paper Shelter this week as we are celebrating the birthday of Mickey Mouse.

First appearing on Steamboat Willie on the 18th November 1928, Mickey Mouse has remained a global favourite and become a legend in his own right. Undergoing some appearance changes over the years Mickey is still looking good for his years and his popularity never wanes! Did you know the first ever version of the lovable character was actually called Mortimer and only for Walt Disney’s wife Lillian did he get re-branded with his new moniker, Mickey 


So, in honour of this most famous mouse, we are asking you to create something using the colours Red, Black & White.

For my birthday card I have used 'Harlequin' as I think this image works perfectly with the colour scheme.  I have also added some yellow to represent the bright lights of the circus and because Mickey's buttons are yellow.



Please come and join in our challenge this week and remember, you can use any image but if you use a Paper Shelter image you are eligible for a higher value prize!


You can also share your creations over in our Facebook Group.
