Morning and hello! As December is here, so is the birthday of the Paper Shelter challenge blog as well. Five fun and creative years together with Veronica, Pedro and their Paper Shelter. So much fun we had and so much fun we will have. Let's hope for five more fun years!
This challenge and blog hop will be over two weeks as we are plenty of members of the team and you might not want to visit us all at once. But the more of us you visit the bigger chance you have of winning a digi or two just because you took the time to comment on each and everyones posts. You also have the chance of winning a digi on the challenge blog. And of course you can enter our challenge without taking part in our blog hop. The normal gift voucher and/or three digis playing with another brand is also up for grabs for those who only play along with the challenge.
The theme of the challenge and blog hop is "A special birthday", so birthday cards are up for this challenge. It can be any kind of birthday but it needs to be clear that it is a birthday card. Nice and easy isn't it? There is still people having birthdays in December you know. :)
Now, you should have visited Vannessa's wonderful blog before you ended up here. If you have gotten lost somewhere you find the complete list of the DT-team over at the challenge blog.
And my birthday card for the hop goes all in pink and red. Well and some green and grey but main colours pink and dark red. What was I thinking? Oh well, I was looking into a big pile of designer papers once again and this time these old papers from Magnolia, Sweden popped out and said us me. Strange but I had more than one from the same collection and it's a 6*6 collection. I have used the image from the Paper Shelter of course called "Happy Birthday", very fitting for the challenge right? I have a bunch of nieces and one of them have her birthday 1st of January so I always have her in mind when I make my cards for the blog hop of the Paper Shelter. Same age even if NN's birthday is a year behind. :)
I have used some swirl dies from Magnolia, flowers is a mix from WOC and I am Roses. Some lace from my stash. There is a frame that I think is from Prima, pearl hearts from WOC. Sticker number from Doodle bug. The dragonfly is from a Swedish company that is't around anymore. The green swirly things in the flower collection is also from Prima. Love that as it adds fun details depending on how you shape it. A silver glitter pen is also used and that looks a bit strange on the photo (gift to the right) but IRL it looks good and great as a little extra sparkle.
As I am the last of in the long row of TPS-crafters you can now jump right back to the challenge blog and leave some love there and hopefully join us in our birthday challenge as well. I hope you had fun and found some great inspiration from our wonderful team. Thanks for making the Paper Shelter what it is today and we hope to keep inspire you in the future as well.
WoW this is a long post. I could probably fit in three of my normal posts here. Take care and all the best!
Love n hugs
