The Paper Shelter's Birthday Blog Hop and Challenge - "Special Birthday"

Oh my its been a busy few days for me and Id completely forgotten that this week I am hosting our very special Birthday Blog Hop and Challenge, and yesterday I was eating my breakfast and I thought oh its the 4th of December tomorrow and I have not got anything prepared, Oh well they say that as you get older the brain cells start to die, I think mine have gone of a bit earlier and left me in a terrible muddle, but here we go and I do hope you enjoy the Blog Hop and Challenge.
Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop and Challenge and this is in celebration of their reaching their 3rd Birthday on December 8th. It will be a two week Challenge and both Design Teams are taking part.


  The Hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and this one is a  "Special Birthday theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!! If you have landed here from The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back 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 for the Challenge, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.


For my card I have used this gorgeous image and background you will find them both here and I know Ive rather cheated as I have printed this image several time them cut them out and decoupaged them up, but it really makes a statement and I thought it would be fabulous for the girl who loves to ride motorbikes. I have also used the backing paper that came with the image and you will also find it here with the image.
From here you will need to hop on over to Angela.  Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fab digi's available in store.
Hop! Hop! Hop!

Good luck and hope you're enjoying it so far I do hope if the girls have inspired you, you will also take part in our "Special Birthday" Challenge as well.
