The Paper Shelter welcomes you

... to a new challenge over at the TPS blog. We have such an easy challenge for you that I guess you will keep us busy commenting all week long. We would love to see some Pearls and Swirls on your creations this time.

It has been a long wait for a new challenge I know, but now we are back again and while you are busy creating the most wonderful projects for us to see, will we be working in the "back room" to try figure out who we are going to chose for our new design team members. I never thougt we would have so many wanting to join us. We are very humble and greateful for that.


So now over to my card for today. I have used the Ballerina once again. I adore her! Can you not? This time she goes in blue and I have matched her up with the designer paper that belongs to the Cookie fairy. I love the colours in it and it went well with the blue ones in my image. The swirls are Magnolia and Marianne Design. Flowers and metal corners are from Wild Orchid, the rest from my stash.


As always you can win a gift certificate worth $20 if you use a TPS image and three images of your choise if you use a different brand when you enter our challenges.

I hope to see you around. I have missed you!

Love n hugs

Hello and Good Morning to you all! I'm back with a new card for the For Fun Challenge and a new challenge. This week we want to see FARM ANIMALS. I don't think I have done any challenge like that before so it was great fun! LoL


The challenge is sponsored by BugaBoo. Very sweet and fun images. As usual they get coloured with my Letraset family, this one in rich warm colours. The designer papers are from Basic Grey. The borders are made with MFT die and a Magnolia Doo hickey die. The heart swirl die is also from Magnolia and the sweet flowers are from the Craft Barn. Yummy colours.

Welcome to a new Challenge over at For Fun

G'day! I am back again. In a lot of pain and very little sleep but here is a new card for you all to see. It's made for the new challenge over at For Fun were we have the theme of GET WELL / FEEL BETTER. We have new sponsor called Dearie Dolls. A whole bunch with sweet images.


I choose to work with this little sweet mousie. Love the big pencil she is holding and writing with. Very cute! She's coloured with the Letraset Family and the designer papers are from Bearly Mine Design. Love them too. They are called Spring Flight and Spring Delights. (You find the link on my side bar). I didn't feel that I needed so much decorations here, just added some mega pearls from Bunny Zoe and I felt I was done. Used a  spotted ribbon from Joanna Sheen and added a charm from Pagoni on the inside of the card. Pleny of place to write your messange on.

Sweet and short as I have very little energy at the moment. I hope I am up and jump around soon, without the crutches. LoL You, however can make a jump over to the For Fun Challenges and see what the rest of the team has been up to.

Love n hugs

It's that time again...


...or maybe not! This week is a bit special you see. Normally during this time I would encourage you all to "run" over to the Paper Shelter blog to take part in our challenge there. I am still encourage you to run over there but from now on and for two weeks I am hosting a design team call there. So no challenges for the next coming weeks, "just" a design team call.

I know that there is many of you saying: Oh, I can't do that, I'm not good enought. And I say, if you don't try you don't even have the chance to be on any team. One day it will be your turn and it might be here and now, who knows?!

We are looking for 7 new crafter to add to our two teams. We are sadly loosing three design team members and have to replace them. Then we need to add four new ones as we feel that all crafters deserves at least two comments each when entering our challenges. I will not be telling you all details here, you have to jump on over to The Paper Shelter to find out the full details. Gosh! I hope I won't forget anything as I can't correct it. I'm at the hospital recovering from a knee surgery.


A few things I do tell you here:
Your colouring skills are important. It has to be excellent. We are promoting some wonderful digi stamps and paper packs as well. You need to be able to use them both.

We will only look at crafter who's creation is made with a digi. We want to see how you handle them. We would be happy if you don't cover up your whole card with decorations and flowers as the image is the focus in this DT call. But of corse you can decorate it, but don't drown it. LoL

If you are into other crafts like "real" scrapbooking, LO etc you are more than welcome to apply. It's wonderful if we can get some scrappers in the team as well. But you still have to use a digital image to be in the DT call.

Ok, I leave you with this and hope to see you all over at the Paper Shelter adding your application for our design team call.

Love n hugs
Marie

A For Fun Challenge

Hello and welcome to the first challenge over at For Fun for this year. We are starting off with a challenge you all love; Anything goes. This week we have no sponsor and do it all for fun.


So for the first time in ages I have pulled my dear old distress inks out and played with them. It's very seldom I get to do that now days as I almost always use my digis and then the Letraset Family is the best. Anyway, I have used one of the very sweet Tildas called Tilda with heart Lolipop from the Sweet Crazy Love collection.

Totally adore this little stamp. It's very sweet and it happens to represent one of my goals for the new year. I want to get back up on my bike again! Having trouble with my back, a shoulder and a leg it's a lot harder than it sounds. But when you read this I have had  surgery. Hopefully the orthopedist has fixed my right knee by now! Otherwise I have to get back and tell him what I think. LoL


Back to my card, sorry I am terrible nervous about this surgery. So much "hangs" on it. The Tilda image is coloured with distress ink and is paired up with some designer papers from Blossom Soup from Jillybean Soup. The colours is to die for and it felt like summer was on it way when I made it. :)

So please come and join us just For Fun this week. My teamies can't wait to see what you come up with. Myself is having a break but I really wanted to make a card at least. LoL

Love n hugs
Marie
