Please do check our rules before entering your creation. They are just a few and very simple.

Morning and hello! Hope you had a good week so far and that life treats you well or that you at least make the most out of it. I am in that mood when I try to find joy in the little things even if it's a bit of a struggle sometimes. Like having colds that never gives in and way too much to do to rest. So at the moment am I enjoying the morning fog and the lovely colour that will soon be here when fall is here for real. So I thought that we would have what I think of as a colourful challenge this week. I love the flowers of fall so our theme this week is set to

Make it bloom

Well didn't I tell you they were fabulous, it always amazes me when I get to see their cards as each one is so different, the girls work so hard to create them and I want to thank them for helping me to publish this post and to show what stunning images The Paper Shelter have to offer us, also a very big thank you to them too as without their images (TPS) we wouldn't even be able to create the cards or projects.
Now that  you've seen what the team have created I hope they have given you enough inspiration to take part in this "Punches and Dies" Challenge.
