The Paper Shelter 10th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop

Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop. This blog hop is in celebration of The Paper Shelter reaching their 10th Birthday on December 8th. It 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 "A SPECIAL CELEBRATION" 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 commenter a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge blog.

For my card I used Autumn Enchantment, colouring her in more wintery colours for a winter themed birthday card. I added some tiny snowflake stamps around her and a few flowers in the corner, which I haven't used for ages! I do tend to go through phases of using certain embellishments!
