Birthday Blog Hop at The Paper Shelter!

Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop. Our hop is a very exciting one for all of us at it is in celebration of our 2nd Birthday!!!! If you have landed here from Bente then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one! Our Design Team have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter Website and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.

For my card I did a bit of decoupage using "There's a Penguin in my Cocoa" digital image & as the challenge theme for the Blog Hop is "Two of a Kind" because it is our 2nd Birthday (which I almost forgot) I used 2 brackets (there is also 2 presents too).  I finished the card with Glamour Dust, greeting & pompom.

Sorry for the rubbish photo

I'm entering my card to these challenges:
The Cupcake Craftroom - Anything Goes for Christmas
Ladybug Crafts - Christmas/Winter
Natalie & Amy - Winter Wishes
Sparkles - Christmas is Coming
Crafts & Me - Anything Goes (with optional extra)
Papertake - Anything Goes (ditto) 
Critter - Christmas Anything Goes 

From here you will need to hop on over to see Wendy & don't forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fab digis available in store.
Hop! Hop! Hop!  Good luck and hope you're enjoying it so far & having a great week. 
Sorry I haven't been around much but I haven't had a lot of free time & the little I have had has been getting ready for the few craft fayres I've been doing lately (luckily the last one is Friday night so hopefully things can get a bit back to normal (& maybe I can get sorted for Christmas, I've still got quite a few pressies to get & I haven't even thought about writing cards :S).  I was going to put the tree up last Sunday but it's going to have to wait until this weekend (I love Christmas & can't wait to get trimmed up!)
