YOU get all the presents!

As you make your way through the Blog Hop, all you need to do is leave a comment on each Team Member's blog, to be in line to win one image of your choice.  At the end of the Blog Hop, each Team Member will choose a winner from one of the comments on their blogs, and we'll have a special post with the names of all our lucky winners.

Don't forget to leave a comment on this post as well, because we'll choose a winner from those comments too.

We're also running our usual challenge, so you can enter your projects here as usual, to be in line to win our fantastic prize, and the normal challenge rules apply.  The Blog Hop and challenge will run for 2 weeks, so you have lots of time to enter and play along.

Great cards from all of the DT Members. Couldn't fit into two cause they are having Wordpress. But all did a great job on their cards.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a good start for 2024.

Bon 13ème anniversaire au Blog.
Ca me fait chaud au coeur car votre anniversaire tombe le jour de celui de mon frère, d'où ma participation. mais il a un peu plus de treize ans... LOL.
J'ai fait le blog Hop et admiré toutes les cartes merveilleuses des deux équipes. Félicitations à la DT.
Happy 13th anniversary to the Blog.
It warms my heart because your birthday falls on my brother's, hence my participation. but he's a little over thirteen... LOL.
I did the Hop blog and admired all the wonderful cards from both teams. Congratulations to the DT.

First of all, congratulations on the 13th anniversary of The Paper Shelter. May there be many more years to come.
I just sat down with a cup of tea and just finished my blogging tour. What beautiful creations the DT has made again and I also saw digi's that I had never seen before, which is nice. Got some nice ideas again.

Hugs, Astrid.
