Challenge #354 - Sentimental

Morning and hello! How are you? Are you ready for a new challenge here with us over at the Paper Shelter? I really hope so. We have a nice and easy theme again as I think it takes us all a bit of time to settle in to our normal routines again. I know I am at least. I can't believe how many homeworks there is between my two boys, especially for my youngest so far. Now we have to present our theme of the week
Use a sentiment on your creation. A simple Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, Good luck etc.

Please do check our rules before entering your creation. They are just a few and very simple. 
Make sure you follow the theme of the week!

Every week do we get a little help from our friend Mr Random to help us pick our winner. This week's winner is

Congrats, you have won three digis of your choice. Use the contact tab above to get in touch with the Paper Shelter and Veronica will help sort out your winnings. In the subject line please write "Winner challenge 353". You have until Saturday during the current challenge to claim your prize.

As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

A little reminder that we do our best to leave you all a comment or two with the challenge rules in mind. Our team members don't have to comment if you enter more than 10 challenges with your creation. We don't require our teamies to comment on your creation if you enter with any other social media than a blog as we don't all use Google + or other accounts. But you are more than welcome to join our challenges this way. 😊

As always we have some fabby creations here to send you some inspiration. We have used a bunch of images and try our best to spread our love of the Paper Shelter images. And if you are one of all of us that loves our images, I do have a spot open on my team. You have to contact me on my personal blog or on my e-mail. You find it over at my blog. I hope your have some time to come and play  with us as we have a very open theme this week.

Congratulations Shamita and now we have a even quicker way for you to claim your prize and that is by clicking on the "Contact" tab at the top of the Blog where you will find a form where you can add your choice of 3 digital images.
Please also add you email address and Challenge #352 in
the subject line so that it makes it easier for Veronica to see which Challenge your 
claim is for, also you must make sure you claim your prize by Saturday this week.

As always our sponsors for this Challenge are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a really fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their store

I know that you have heard this before, but this will only be given if you have used one of our products on your card which could be either an Image, Paper or Printable. However, even if you haven't used an item from The Paper Shelter and you are picked as a winner you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice so I'm sure you will agree that its still worth taking part in our Challenges. So many more of you are actually using The Paper Shelter items in your creations so a lot more winners are now winning the whole $30 to spend. 
The Design Team has really done us proud this week with lots of different uses of our theme and I'm sure your going to be able to pick one of them for your own card, before I show them to you I must tell you that unfortunately Louise is unable to join us this week as her youngest son is suffering with a ear infection so she has been spending some quality time with him, I do want to wish him all the best as the pain from one of those is pretty nasty. Anyway here is what the rest of the design team have been up to.
I bet you were blown away with their cards weren't you? Don't forget if there is a image you would like to use for your own projects you can click on the Using link above each of the cards this will take you directly to the webpage for you to obtain it.
Im sure the girls will have done enough to inspire you so don't forget the theme is "Embossing of any Kind" and we look forward to seeing your own projects.
Please don't forget that you are allowed to enter 3 cards or projects, but please if you want to be in with a chance to win a prize one of those 3 cards must carry one of our images PLEASE
