Congratulations Alison and well done. We now have a quicker way for you
to claim your prize and that is by clicking on the "Contact" tab at the top of the Blog where you will find a form that you can add your choice of  3 digi images.
Please also add you email address and Challenge #320 in
the subject line so that it makes it easier for Veronica to see which Challenge 
your claim is for, also you must make sure you claim your prize by Saturday this week.
 
As always our sponsors for this Challenge are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a really fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their store 
 

I know that you have heard this before, but this will only be given if you have used one of our products on your card which could be either an Image, Paper or Printable. However, even if you haven't used an item from The Paper Shelter and you are picked as a winner you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice so I'm sure you will agree that its still worth taking part in our Challenges. So many more of you are actually using The Paper Shelter items in your creations so a lot more winners are now winning the whole $30 to spend.  You can enter up to three projects but one of these must carry one of our products please, its only

This part of the post is slightly different than usual as we will only be showing Marie's (B Team Leader) and my own Cards here and to see the rest of the Design Teams Cards you will need to take part in the Blog Hop itself, but as Ive already explained its not compulsory to do so but you do stand a better chance of winning one of our gorgeous images as each of the blog stops will be giving One Image away after the Hop has finished. And we have 18 images to give and this is done by each of the blogs picking their winner from their comments left for their cards. And believe me you will be missing some really stunning cards if you don't take part.
To help you along the way I will list all the blogs in order below my own card so that if you find that when you get to the next person on the Hop and the Blog is missing you can return to the Challenge Blog here and then restart by picking up the next stop on your way.  
But before I do that I want to thank everyone who has taken part in our Challenges over not only the last year but also in the past and for making The Paper Shelter such a great success, and a Big Thank You also to both The Design Teams for working with me and creating such stunning cards and especially Marie who has worked with me for the last 7 years as well, and a very Special Thank You to Veronica and Pedro for all their hard work in creating the images we have the Joy to receive and Play with. 
And now is the Time to set the Blog Hop in motion, have fun and enjoy visiting the Design Teams and I'm sure you to will be blown away by their stunning Cards:-

Patty Sue's link is now working, she has mobility problems at the moment and has to rely on family members to help her. Thank you for being so patient.
 I sincerely hope that you enjoy our Blog Hop and I wish you good luck in winning one of the Images that are on offer to you, and we have one last one to give away and that's here on the Challenge Blog, this will be picked from the comments left on here which I hope you will leave once you have taken part in the Blog Hop, I do hope that you will come back and do so and Thank you all for taking part. I will be back after the Hop is over to give the list of all the Image winners so don't forget to return then.

REMEMBER! 
You don't have to take part in the bloghop to join the challenge.

For the A Team this week it is a very sad one as one of our team members Marianne is stepping down we are going to miss her terribly as she has been with us for a long time and is extremely talented, so good luck sweetheart all the very best for the future from everyone. Also we seem to be down a few members to as Danny is hoping to take part but has had a nasty scare over the weekend but luckily she is now home from hospital but isnt sure she is going to be able to get her card done, and Anna is extremely busy and was unable to get her card done, so I hope you will forgive us as we are a bit short of cards this week but those that are here are absolutely stunning.
And the update on Patty is that she is home and doing well but wont be doing any commenting unless her grandson is able to help her as she has to rest her shoulder for a month before she is allowed to do anything with her arm.
