Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well todays theme over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot we want you to create a Card for that special Man or Boy in your life, and I have quite a number in my own family, 5 grandsons and 2 great grandsons, and of course a wonderful hubby to, so it shouldnt be to difficult to find a image from among your stash to make that card for one of them and in a moment you will see what I have created.
But for that I want to tell you that we are being sponsored by Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a really generous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

But we only allow 3 entries into our Challenges and at least one of those must use on of The Paper Shelter products.
And here is the Card I have created for a very special little boy who loves Norwich City Football Club


 I have printed the image onto white card and you will find him here, and then coloured it in the colours of the Football Team he follows, and then cut it out with my rotatrim to create the square topper, I then used green card for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first layer of green card and the papers are from Sweetshoppe digi papers and its called "Soccer Star" and I have used three from the digi set, and layered up as shown in the photo.

Challenge #241 - "Easter Time" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well can you believe that this coming weekend is Easter and of course the clocks will change again to Summer time and we loose a hours sleep, we have quite a job convincing our dog that the time has changed as shes so sure her feeding and walking times dont alter, I think shes in for a big surprise.
Well as its only days before the big Chocolate Egg time I thought that my card for this "Easter Time" challenge should be something to do with this season but its slightly different for the usual Bunny card and I hope you like the result.
As always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.


But this is providing you have used one of their products on your card and this could be either a Image, Paper or Printable and you will find lots to choose from at The Paper Shelter Website here, and even if you dont use one of these they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice. But we only allow 3 entries into our Challenges and at least one of those must use on of The Paper Shelter products.
And now for the reveal of my card


As I said its a slightly different Easter card and this scene is titled "Peaceful Easter" and you will find it here, I printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I cut it out with a circle Nestabilitie die and a fancy one for the mount, the sentiment was stamped onto white card then also cut out with a Spellbinders label die.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card, the backing paper is also from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. I then placed my mounted image in the center and the sentiment in the top right hand corner.
To finish of I have used several egg buttons down the left hand side at the bottom and then the rabbit one in the bottom right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will now go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Easter Time".
