A Special Celebration from The Paper Shelter

Good morning. It's not time for my usual post for the Paper Shelter Challenge blog, but today is a very special challenge. It is The Paper Shelter's 4th birthday and so to celebrate both design teams have come together to bring you a fabulous blog hop! This challenge will last for 2 weeks until Tuesday 16th December.


The Hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and this one is a "A Special Celebration"theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!! If you have landed here from Sam's blog then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, as you won't want to miss out on this one!

Our Design Team 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 are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.

And here's my card using one of Veronica and Pedro's new images, The Cutest Wizard. I thought he would make a great card for a young boy or a Harry Potter fan!
