Ok, back to the new challenge right away. This week we have set the theme of Tie a bow. So somewhere on your card or other creation we would like to see a tied bow. How simple is that? I want to see tons and tons of entries this week. I need to get some inspiration for coming challenges. LoL

What you can win? Ahh, as usually we have the smashing $20 voucher up for grabs if you use a TPS image on your creation. We really would love to see more of using them so we can give away our vouchers. If you use another brand of image the prize will be three digis of your choice. That's nice too, even if you get so many more images for the $20 voucher. :)

My gals has been doing a lovely job with some smashing cards to inspire you all once again. Please drop by and give them some love. They do such a wonderful job to inspire you all.

And now only one thing left to say; have a wonderful new crafting year 2012! We hope that you'll keep coming back and play with us! We love it when you do!

With love n hugs
from the Paper Shelter's B team

Well done Gloria and congratulations you have won Five digi's of your own choice,  so if you would like to click on the email elf on the left handside you will be able to contact the store directly to claim your prize

And now after all the excitement of the winners we will now get back to this weeks Challenge and for this we want to see "Lace" on your card, and as always our very generous sponsers are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter.
And they are offering you the chance to win a $20. Gift Certificate to spend on their website, but as always there is a catch you need to use one of their products on your card, but even if you havent they are still going to give you 3 digi images of your own choice, who could ask for more. You really need to go and visit their website The Paper Shelter to see what stunning and beautiful images, papers and accessories they have to offer, and believe me when I say they are outstanding good value.

Before I show you what beautiful cards my very talented Design Team have for you, I have some very sad news one of my team "Gina" has decided to leave us as shes not always in good health, so we can certainly understand why as she really needs time to recover, but we are going to sorely miss her stunning cards and projects, so Thank You Gina and good luck for your future. And now here they are:-

Now that youve seen what stunning work my girls have done I do hope it will inspire you to take part in this "The Lace Look" Challenge.
And if you would like to come back tomorrow I will be posting the list of all the other individual winners on each of the Design Team Blogs.

"Its a Celebration" Challenge and Blog Hop

Good Morning Everyone, it's a year since Veronica and Pedro launched The Paper Shelter Website and to celebrate their first Birthday they have generously offered to sponser not only the Challenge which is themed "Its a Celebration" (which will last for two weeks for just this once) but also a "Blog Hop" in which both Design Teams have come together to take part in it. The main prize for this Challenge is going to be a Whopping $30 to spend on their website, but as always there is the usual rule, you need to use one of their products on your card to be eligible to win the main prize, but even if you  haven't, they are still going to offer you 5 images of your own choice, two more than the usual.

And if that wasn't enough all along the Blog Hop there is a chance of winning one of their images by leaving a comment on each of your stops, then one of them from each stop will be picked at random on the 21st December, after the Challenge has finished. That's 16 chances of winning a prize and then when you've finished, you should come back here again to leave just one more comment on how you've enjoyed the hop to win one further image, so that makes 17 images on offer for just commenting on what you've seen.

But before I go any further I'm sure that you will want to know who won last week's "Anything Goes" Challenge and here is the winner:-

And now back to the Blog Hop, here is the list of all the blogs that you will need to visit not only to see what our very talented Design Teams have created for your pleasure and inspiration but also to stand a chance of winning one of those images. And lastly I do hope you will also make our very new Design Team member Paola very welcome.

And too wet your appetite, here are two of the cards from the Team Leaders that you will see as you go along your way.

Marie - "B" Team Leader

And now to get your started here's the first blog that you need to visit Shirley's. I want to wish you all good luck with the draw's and I do hope that you enjoy yourself on the journey, we will see you back here when you've finished and do remember to leave a comment at every stage, so of you go now HOP, HOP, HOP.

If you would like just to take part in just the Challenge that will be perfectly OK.

And don't forget to take part in the "Its a Celebration" Challenge to stand a chance of being picked by random org. for that fabulous $30. main prize.

1st Birthday "Celebrations" Blog Hop and a 2 week Challenge

Good Morning Everyone, weve been promising to make an announcement of  a really Special Event thats taking place here next week on Wednesday the 7th December well here it is, Veronica and Pedro launched The Paper Shelter Website a year ago on this date, and as its been such a fabulous success they wanted to "Celebrate" their 1st Birthday in Style, and so to do this both Design Teams have come together to hold a "Blog Hop" but not just any old Hop, one with lots of fabulous prizes. They are offering you a chance to win one of 16 individual images by leaving comments on each stage of the hop and the best one will be chosen by that team member. The hop will start and end here at the Challenge Blog, but it doesnt finish there, if you leave just one more comment on how you enjoyed the hop you will stand a further chance to win one more here as well, so that makes 17 chances in all.

And if that wasn't enough, the Main Challenge itself, for just this once is to last two weeks and the winner when chosen by random number stands a chance of winning, (providing they've used one of The Paper Shelter products), a whopping $30 gift certificate to spend in their webshop, and even if they haven't used one of them, the prize has been increased to 5 digi stamps of their own choice. Dont you agree thats some awesome prizes?

My personal feelings are that I think to stand a better chance of winning that fabulous main prize, it might be a good idea to visit The Paper Shelter Website to see what stunning Images, Papers and Accessories they have to offer as they really are such very good value, and to treat yourself to a few as it would an excellent idea for this "Celebration" Challenge.

Before I sign of I want to thank not only Veronica and Pedro for their generosity in sponsering this Blog Hop and Challenge but also the Design Teams for all their hard work in making this a fabulous success. Dont forget to come back on the 7th for hopefully a very enjoyable Blog Hop and Challenge.
With Hugs Shirleyxxxx
