4th Birthday Celebration at TPS

Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop 
This is in celebration of their reaching their 4th 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 Celebration" theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!! 

If you have landed here from  Maria  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. 
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 share I copic coloured the very cute Tucan that can be found here.
He has been on my to-do list for quite some time as I think he is fabulous!
DP is Graphic 45, leaves are SB Foliage, flower from my stash.
The wooden fishtail has been covered with a piece of DP, 
QuicKutz number and letter added to the top.
The turquoise paper is actually iridescent but the photo did not catch that or the
glossy accents added to the tucan's eye.  
Sentiment computer generated when the image was printed.

From here you will need to hop on over to Sam's. 
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.
  hugs,
Pat K xx

Lucy Patrick said...

Pat, this is lovely!! I love the clean and simple feel to it and yet it has a lot going on at the same time! I love how you've left the perfect amount of white around the image so that he remains the star and the card has a brightness to it. I love that teal and black paper colour combo and the stitching, I love it all I think I'm trying to say hehe!! XOX Lucy
