Challenge #487 - Two Colours - The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot

 Well this is my first post since leaving as DT Leader for The Paper Shelter and as I had several cards left I felt I could help Linda settle into taking over by adding them to the DT post and this is one of them.


This image is titled "Happy Birthday to Me" and you will find it here, I printed her onto white card and used my copic pens to colour her, I then cut her out with a rectangle die and used a larger one and pink card for the mount. 
The sentiment is one from my stash and I have stamped it and mounted it onto another piece of pink card. The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of pink card and the papers are also from the same place as the image, I have mounted this onto the base card with a large pink ribbon around the middle and then placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment below in the bottom right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the girls have created for you.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Challenge #485 - Activity, Job or Hobby - The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot

 Well its arrive Paper Shelter Followers this is my very last Challenge blog post for The Paper Shelter as Team Leader and as of today Linda McEnery is now the official Team Leader of the A Team with Vannessa as Team Leader for the B Team, so I hope you will give her all the help and support she deserves. I'm going to miss my fortnightly rushes to get my Challenge posts done and uploaded but it is time for me to pass on the baton to Linda and I know she going to do a brilliant job of guiding and leading the Team for Veronica our owner of The Paper Shelter with Vannessa's help. Good Luck girls and I hope you both enjoy it as much as I have for the past eleven years.
And also a very special  big thank you to my Team who have be have been more than anything they have been my very good friends, thank you girls, and also to those Team Member who have worked with me in the past.
Now for my very last post this weeks theme is all about
 
Activity, Job or Hobby
 
and I have chosen to use a image which portrays my step-daughters profession as she is a chemistry technician in a secondary School in London.
 But I think its time for me to get on and to remind you that you will find some beautiful images over at The Paper Shelter and there's lot to choose from for this weeks theme to. Our Sponsors are and as always are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website. 
 

But don't forget they will only give you the whole amount if you have used one of their images on your card but don't worry if you haven't, they will still give you 3 digi images or your own choice if you are picked as a winner. Please don't forget you are allowed to enter 3 projects but one of these must carry one of our images please as its only good manners don't you think.
And here is the image I chose to use
 

This image is titled "Science" and you will find it here, I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a square die to cut her out and a fancy larger on and pink card for the mount. The sentiment is once which I found on the internet and I have printed it and then mounted this onto a piece of the same pink card as the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of the same pink card, the backing paper is the one from the same design set as the image and  you will find that here. Its a simple card but certainly has a punch.
Well I want to thank all those that have visited me here on my blog over the last 11 years while I have been a Team Leader, I may still upload the odd card now and again if I remember to do so, but my intention to retire and step down is to spend more time with my hubby and dogs, especially as one of them is now nearly 11 years and the other has mental problems coping with Epilepsy, ADHD and Autism he is getting more difficult to cope with new experiences and both hubby and I are having to watch ourselves not allowing him to get spooked by them.
 Now that you've seen my creation I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Activity, Job and Hobby" Challenge to.

Challenge #481 - Back to School - The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot

 Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well it must be only days before the children start filtering back to School, I know my own great grandsons will be starting back soon and I'm sure their parents will be glad to see them return to School as towards the end of the holidays they really start to get bored and need the stimulation of learning again.  So my choice of theme this week is

Back to School

  He is titled "Back to School Madness" and you will find it here I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I cut him out with a square die and mounted him onto a larger one cut from blue card. The sentiment was printed from a verse I found on the internet and which I felt was appropriate for my card.

Challenge #479 - Anything but a Card - The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot

 Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, welcome back its been 4 weeks since we held a ordinary Challenge and I sincerely hope you enjoy playing with the Anything Goes one we held during our break, this week is something different its going to be challenging and I'm sure you will cope with

Anything but a Card

This means we want to see what you can create other than a Card.
 But I think its time for me to get on and to remind you that you will find some beautiful images over at The Paper Shelter and there's lot to choose from for this weeks theme to. Our Sponsors are and as always are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

Please don't forget you are allowed to enter 3 projects but one of these must carry one of our images please as its only good manners don't you think.
For my own creation I chose this image
 

 She is titled "Comfy at Home" and you will find her here, I printed her several times then cut the image out to use for decoupaging onto the base image which was printed and stuck to the side of a wooden tissue box cover. Using silicone glue I have layered her up several times to make it stand out from the base layer.
I hope you like the result, its certainly different and you have to be rather careful when pulling out the tissue you don't pull it down in front of it, but it does give the box an unusual finish.
