The Paper Shelter Ch#202 ~ Lace

Hi everyone,
I hope you're having a good week.

Today starts a new Challenge at

with the theme of "Lace"

I've copic coloured an image that came out a couple of weeks ago
and knew when I saw it that I would use it for my Granddaughter Maggie's birthday.
She has a lineolated parakeet named Charlie.
The image is called Purity and can be found here.

Our sponsors this week as always are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter  
and they are offering you a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website
if you have used one of  The Paper Shelter products on your card.
But even if you have not they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice
if you are the lucky winner.
I do hope you can play along with us this week and stop by the blog
to see the wonderful inspiration from my team mates.

I would like to enter the following challenges - arranged alphabetically for your convenience:
Crafty Boots Challenge  - Things with Wings

Thanks so much for stopping by and your lovely comments are always appreciated.
