The Paper Shelters 9th Birthday Blog Hop

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well this weeks Challenge is a very special one as The Paper Shelter has now reached its 9th Birthday and each year as a special treat we invite



everyone to celebrate with us, and both the Design Team A&B are not only hosting our usual Challenge which will follow the theme

Birthday / Celebrations


REMEMBER! 
You don't have to take part in the blog hop to join in the challenge

(the theme is to combine not only Birthdays but also a Special Occasion like a Christmas Card to someone special or a even a Celebration) but also to invite you to join in on our Blog Hop which will take place over the next two weeks, though its not compulsory for you to actually take part in the Blog Hop if you would prefer not to, but if you wish to stand a chance of winning one of the 20 free images we are giving away you will need to do so, this is our way of thanking you all and this can be achieved by leaving a comment on each of the Design Teams blogs but you know what they say "You need to be in it to win it" but the choice is yours.
But I must not get ahead of myself as I'm sure you will want to know who won our last weeks "Blast from the Past" Challenge set by Marie and that lucky person chosen by Random org is:-

Congratulations Suze and well done. We now have a 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 that you can add your choice of  30$ worth of digi images.
Please also add you email address and Challenge #408 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.

And here is Suze card using Callyn 

 
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.  You can enter up to three projects but one of these must carry one of our products please, its only fair you do so.
 This part of the post is slightly different to the usual as we shall be only be showing Marie's (B Team Leader) and my own Cards here and to see the rest of the Design Teams Cards you will need to take part in the Blog Hop itself, but as Ive already explained its not compulsory to do so but you do stand a better chance of winning one of our gorgeous images as each of the blog stops we will be giving One Image away after the Hop has finished. And we have 20 images to give and this is done by each of the blogs picking their winner from their comments left for their cards. And believe me you will be missing some really stunning cards if you don't take part.   
To help you along the way I will list all the blogs in order below my own card so that if you find that when you get to the next person on the Hop and the Blog is missing you can return to the Challenge Blog here and then restart by picking up the next stop on your way. 
But before I do that I want to thank everyone who has taken part in our Challenges over not only the last year but also in the past and for making The Paper Shelter such a great success, and a Big Thank You also to both The Design Teams for working with me and creating such stunning cards and especially to Marie who has worked with me for the last 9 years as well, and a very Special Thank You to Veronica and Pedro for all their hard work and generosity in creating the images we have the Joy to receive and Play with.
And now is the Time to set the Blog Hop in motion, have fun and enjoy visiting the Design Teams and I'm sure you to will be blown away by their stunning Cards:-



I sincerely hope that you enjoy our Blog Hop and I wish you good luck in winning one of the Images that are on offer to you, and to finish off we have one last one to give away and that's here on the Challenge Blog, this will be picked from the comments left on here which I hope you will leave once you have taken part in the Blog Hop, I do hope that you will come back and do so and Thank you all for taking part. 

I will be back once the Hop is over on the 18th to give the list of all the Image winners so don't forget to return then to see if you've been one of the lucky winners.


REMEMBER! 
You don't have to take part in the blog hop to join in the challenge. 
The Challenge is a "Birthdays / Celebrations" themed one
