Challenge #538 - Something Cold

 Good morning to all our Paper Shelter friends and welcome to this week's new challenge! It's good to be back after our winter break! This week's challenge is a fun challenge! We all hope you will all enjoy it as well! 

This week's challenge is …

Something Cold

You can create any project you like and can use any image as long as your project uses the theme of Something Cold. It could include cold weather, cold food, cold colours, an activity taking place in the cold and so on.

Team B have made a fantastic collection of cards and projects this time.  The DT members have all used so many different, gorgeous images for inspiration as well. Be sure to click on their blog links to find out more about each of the projects and the digi stamps they have used too. 

Before I share their cards though, I'm sure you are eager to know who won our

Congratulations to Roberta!

We now have a quicker way for you to claim your prize of 3 digi stamps from the Paper Shelter Store and this is by clicking on the Contact Link at the top of the blog. This will take you directly to a page for you to fill out with your choices.

Please can you also add Festive Colours Challenge #537 Winner in your subject line so that it makes it easier for Veronica to see your choices. Please can you also make sure you claim your prize by this coming weekend. 

As always for this week's challenge our sponsors are The Paper Shelter and they are generously offering a really fabulous prize of $30 to spend in their store.
I know that you have heard this before, but this amazing prize 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 it's still worth taking part in our challenge. 

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, which is just fantastic!

You can enter up to three projects but one of these must show one of our products please; its only fair you do so. 

Please make sure your project is a new project for this challenge and not one that has been entered in previous challenges. No backlinking please. 

Now for Team B and their absolutely wonderfully cold cards this week, I know you will love them and I'm sure you will find lots of inspiration from them for your own cards and projects.

 Aren't Team B's projects all so cold yet so amazing as well?! I love how so many cute images have been used - the designs of every project are just so fabulous! Well done Team B and thank you so much for creating all these fabulous projects.

Don't forget if there is a image which the Team have used above on their card which you would like to use for your own, don't forget to click on the "Using" link above each of the cards and it will take you directly to the webpage where you will be able to buy it. They really are fabulous value too.

Please don't forget, if you wish to take part in the challenge, that you are allowed to enter up to 3 projects, but please can you make sure that you add one of our products to at least one of your entries. If you don't, unfortunately, you will not be eligible for any of the prizes.

And now it's over to you to show us what you can do with this week's challenge theme "Something Cold". We are all looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with it.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
