New Challenge at The Paper Shelter

Today's new challenge at The Paper Shelter is "Blue & White" or "Pink & White".  As I've just lost all my digital images when my PC broken I've had to use one of TPS's new images (which is not a problem as all their images are fab but I would have liked to have made a baby card).  The image I used is called "Mad About Video Games" & I coloured it (not very well, I'm not sure what went wrong here, the ink seemed to bleed & it just didn't go as I'd planned) with ProMarkers.  The stripey card is recycled from some packaging & I used my star border punch (Martha Stewart) & single star punch (Fiskars), finishing off with some punched corners, a couple of star brads & a greeting.

As always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

And as always this come with the usual rule that you must have used one of their products on your card but even if you don't they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice. I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter website to see what beautiful and stunning products they have to offer.

The Challenges:
Make it Monday - Just For Him
Craft Your Passion - Fathers Day/Masculine
Creative Creation - For You Dad/Masculine
Cards For Men - Boys Will Be Boys

I hope you're having a great week :D  It's my day off today & this morning I'm visiting my old friend Ida who I haven't seen for a while & my brother is popping round for a cuppa this afternoon (I must try & fit some crafting in at some point too).

Awwww, this is just too cute! Love the colors you chose for this darling image! Love your design, die cuts, and fabulous recycled paper--it just makes the card pop! :^)

I would be devastated if I lost all my images. I have them backed up on a separate drive that Gary bought just for that purpose.

This is lovely Tracey. Love the wonderful stars you have used and the sweet image. Great one for a video game player. Looks like you had a wonderful time on you vacation. Having vacation weather here today, 25 degrees and I think it's a tiny bit too hot. :)
