The Paper Shelter 7th Anniversary Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop. This hop is in celebration of The Paper Shelter reaching their 7th Birthday on December 8th. This hop will be a two week Challenge and both Design Teams are taking part.

The Hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and this one is a "BIRTHDAY/ CELEBRATIONS" theme, which I know is extremely popular!

If you have landed here from Patsy'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'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 commentator a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.

I decided to use the adorable Emily for my card. Love her sweet face! I have to say it made for a refreshing change making a non-Christmas card as I have been making those for weeks now in preparation for the big day. I have a few more to send out this year as I have moved jobs, so have my new work colleagues to send to as well as some of the old ones!
