Have fun with your winnings!

Next week this could be you! Just make a card that fits our challenge for the week and you are in the draw. If you play with our beloved Paper Shelter images you have a chance of winning a gift voucher worth $20. Playing with another brand gives you the chance to win three digis of your choice. Pretty good that to! You know with almost every TPS image there is a designer paper included that matches the image so it's good value for money here. You really need to try them out, OK? LoL
