Good morning and Merry Christmas to everyone! We are having a three week challenge at The Paper Shelter challenge blog! Our fearless leaders Shirley and Marie will be commenting but all my team mates will be taking time with their families! I have chosen the lovely digi "Follow The Stars" from The Paper Shelter for my card. She is a fun color and I wish that I could take better photos as these pictures do not show all the fun sparkle! The theme for our challenge at The Paper Shelter is "Anything Goes"! It doesn't get better than that! 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

May the New Year bring you blessings!
My Song: Take a Walk Through Bethlehem (Trisha Yearwood)
The city's decorated up for Christmas
All the stores are open late tonight
People hurry through the frozen streets
I take a walk.
Every child has a thousand wishes
Every window has a thousand lights
Every soul has a need for peace
I take a walk.
There's a star that still outshines the night
You can find it if you close your eyes
And see the light.
Take a walk through Bethlehem
Come and kneel before the Lamb
Good news for every man
Walk through Bethlehem.
Every night another TV special
Merchants counting down the shopping days
But something's missing underneath the tree
I take a walk.
'Cause every heart longs for more than tinsel
Something more than just a holiday
Come and celebrate the baby King
Let's take a walk.
You don't have to travel anywhere
Faith and hope and love will bring you there
Bring you there.
Take a walk through Bethlehem
Come and kneel before the Lamb
Good news for every man
Walk through Bethlehem...

The Paper Shelter Blog Hop!

Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop and this is in celebration of their reaching their 7th 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  "BIRTHDAY/ CELEBRATIONS" theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!! If you have landed here from Julie Price's blog 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 Teams 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 commentator a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.
My card for Birthday/Celebrations!
I have chosen the lovely Coconut for my card!
We are having dreary cold weather so this card should bring on a sunny celebration!
I used a die to frame my digi stamp and added some pretty rhinestones for some bling! 
A flower to finish off my card's warm, sunny feel added some balance to the bottom of the card!

Hop! Hop! Hop!
Good luck and hope you're enjoying it so far.
