Morning all you happy people and the rest! Hope you're doing fine. We are still fighting the flu here at my place. But that's all I'm going to say about it, if I ignore it, it might go away. LoL Spent the morning at the Doctor's office. Found out that I have double sided Ear infection. A torn eardrum is also added. My ear has been "leaking" since yesterday and since it's a bit bloody. I had to go. Now I'm just waiting to get some meds as well. Then I might get well again, but for now I hear nothing. A bit creapy. LoL

So today is a BIG day! What? Do you say. What is so special about today? Well, I am sure the sun is shining somewhere, not here but somewhere and it making someone happy about that. And there is probably tons of other reasons this day is special. But for me this day is really special because today are we celebrating the 100 challenge over at the Paper Shelter.

I've been with the Shelter since it started up thanks to Veronica and Pedro over at the Shelter. The most wonderful bosses! Also thanks to Donna from Bearly Mine Designs who took me with her to the Shelter from the start. And of course a big thank you to Shirley who I work with both on the Paper Shelter teams and the Bearly Mine teams. What a team we are! Still after more than two years I am having a blast, and that has everything to do with wonderful people, stunning images and designer papers. I am still in heaven. So the BIGGEST of HAPPY 100 CHALLENGES to the Paper Shelter! Cheers to (at least) a 100 more!

So to celebrate this big event we have set the theme of CELEBRATIONS! It might be birthdays, weddings etc. You go for it, just make sure that we understand what the celebrations is all about, ok?

As I have been totally knocked out by the flu almost the whole last week my card creations this week might not be in the same standard as they use to. I am so hoping to get rid of all these illness soon. I never long for spring but at this time I do. I want to open the doors, get the whole house a really hard going clean. I hate spring! I have a few things that I am terrified of and one of them is thunder and thunder storms. Guest what starts in spring? Besides that I have tons of pain during spring so I don't like it because of that either. LoL I better stop talking here...

My card. I have used the sweet image called "Patissier in Distress" coloured here with my normal Letraset family and a dash of prisma pens. The designer papers are from two different pads from First Edition Papers. Flowers are a mix from WOC and Magnolia. Ribbon from Mollys. Gemstones from Magnolia as well.

To make this challenge a bit super extra special we have a different prize for you this week. Our first thought was " hey let's give away a $100 gift certificate to one player", but no that didn't feel right even if the thought was fun. So instead we are offering 5 gift cerificates worth $20 each and that also give us a 100 even, but more winners! And this time only, it doesn't matter if you are playing with a TPS image or not. Everyone has the chance of winning the $20 vouchers. How great isn't that? So if you help us celebrate our 100 challenge we give you a chance of getting one of our five pressies. Cool right?

Love n hugs
Marie (who one day will start this blog with saying, "I feel great today")

Ps: You still have a couple of hours to enter or DT call if you're interested.

Oh Marie, I'm so sorry to hear that you've still got that rotten infection. I had that ear problem last year - it really became a problem because I was struggling with my balance because of it and it blooming well hurt!
Take care sweetie and I hope you feel much better soon Karen x
