It's time for another PaperShelter Challenge and then some...

I better warn you right from the start. This will be a long post. Two cards, two challenges with the PaperShelter as the common thing in between.

First of all a big thank you to all of you who joined us this past week for our challenge. Lots of stunning creations from you all. It's so nice to look at them and be inspired by them. This week we are looking for

St Patrick themed cards, and/or cards with charms.

Since I don't have a clue of how a St Patrick day is celebrated, I had to go for the charm part this time. There is so many holidays we don't celebrate here in Sweden. This little tiny country is not much for celebrations. :)  So my charms comes from Pagoni here in Sweden. Lovely place to find charms at, to a good price. The image I have used is "Memory Chest", filled with stuff from your childhood maybe? It's coloured with my promarkers. Used one in gold for the corners and the lock. My DP are from Donna's Shabby Vintage if I remember right... Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts just as usual. Half pearls comes from BunnyZoe.
So now it's your turn to pop over and see what my fellow DT friends has come up with. I'm am sure you will get inspired of what they have done.

Then we have another card. This card is made for the challenge over at Operation Write Home where the challenge is do make something "Polka Dot". The PaperShelter is sponsoring this challenge and we in the team was asked if we could make up a couple of cards to inpire you all. This is what I did.

I used the head of the "in the 20's" gal and coloured her up in sepia/brown colours. Put her together with some golden and brown cardstock and some more of the wonderful papers from Bearly Mine. This time from the collections "Dotty" and "Shabby Vintage". So with this I leave you to make a card both for The PaperShelter and for the Operation Write Home as well. Can't wait to see what you creat with this fun theme. What is wrong with me I only tend to make brown cards at the moment. Fourth time in a very short period. Have to find another lovely colour I believe. :)

And til next time, love n hugs for you all
