“Two Heartbeats”….The Paper Shelter Blog Hop Celebrates Our 2nd Birthday!

   Good Morning and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop. Our hop is a very exciting one for all of us as it is in celebration of our 2nd Birthday!!!! If you have landed here from Lorraine’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 Team has worked very hard and the team is showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter online store. 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!

      Our theme for this blog Hop is “Two of Anything”.  For my card, I selected a digi image called “Light of My Life”, and the two of anything on my card are… two heartbeats!   This image, like so many others, comes pre-printed as well as in jpeg and png format. I used the pre-printed image for my card – they are so perfect for when you want a quick or perfectly colored image right away!

         The design paper is new- it is Lili of the Valley “Promises” paper pad and I just love it. It worked so well with the colors in the pre-printed image.  I added some Pebbles iridescent chalk around the image and a bit of Deco Art Glamour Dust to her hair and I was ready to embellish.  The die cut is from Spellbinder- Floral Ovals.  The flowers and metal corner are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Don’t know where I got the floral rose ribbon, and the pearls are from my stash.   I just love, love, love this sentiment.  Thanks Carla for introducing me to Create with TLC where I purchased this beautiful digi sentiment!  I was waiting for the right time to use it and when this I found this, I knew it would be perfect for a mommy or daddy to be! (It is available in my ETSY shop, where I have added a few cards, today!)

   From here you will need to hop on over to Patti Sue’s blog. Don’t forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fabulous digis available in store.Hop! Hop! Hop! Good luck and hope you’re enjoying it so far.
