Well done Blueboreale and congratulations and we now have a quicker method
of collecting your prize and that is by clicking on the "Contact Tab" at the
Top on the Tabs Bar it will give you a form to fill up with your choice
3 digi images and can you make sure you put Challenge #154 in the subject bar
 and please also dont forget to add your email address to make it easier
                         for Veronica to sort out your images and get them to you quickly.

But this is providing you have used one of their products on your card and that could be either a image, backing paper or printable and you will find them here on The Paper Shelter website, and even if you havent you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really cannot loose can you.
And now I have some more sad news to tell you, our very long standing Design Team member Carol has had to step down and this is because her Cake Decorating business has really taken of and she couldnt find the time she wanted for her DT work, so we all want to wish her all the very best in her new business adventure and Im sure you will still see her work either on Facebook or even on her blog. And to take her place on the Team we have been lucky to have a very talented Lady join us and that is Marianne and we want to welcome her and I sincerely hope that you will pay her blog "Cards by Marianne" a visit and leave some of your very wonderful love you extend to us.
As usual this is the part of the Challenge Post I love the best and that is to show you what the Girls have been up to, this week they have excelled we have some really "Fabulous" male cards to show you and I do want to thank them all so much for all their hard work as without you I just wouldnt have such a brilliant Team.




















Well you must agree they really are fabulous "For the Boys" cards and Im sure they will have inspired you to take part in this weeks Challenge so I look forward to seeing your cards in the next few days.
