Challenge #286 - Birthday girl

Morning and hello! What a strange weather we had yesterday, sun shine, rain, hail and some really hard winds.

I guess spring is here for real now with all those weather changes. Well, it is time for a new fun challenge here at the Paper Shelter and this week we have the fabby theme of

Birthday girl
Just as simple as it sounds, a card for a female who has her birthday. 😃

Challenge #285 - Away with the Fairies

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers this weeks theme is all about the little people you know what I mean anyway its titled

"Away with the Fairies"  

I remember as a child loving to read all sorts of stories about them and dreaming that they were living at the end of my garden, I know Im a big kid at heart and if I'm really honest with you I still believe even at 74, and why not if we cannot have a bit of escapism in our lives when can you.
Well I think I have exhausted my daft reasons for picking this theme I hope that you will have a look among your stash to find a special stamp or image to use for this Challenge and before I show you what the Design Team have created for you this week I know you will want to know who won last weeks "Circles/Dots and/or Stripes" Challenge and that lucky person chosen by Random Org is:

Unfortunately poor Patty will be out of action for at least another 5 weeks so Liz one of Design Team members are graciously offered to carry on commenting on Patty's numbers for the time being until she feels able to add her own comments with her left hand, which is a bit of a trial for her, so thanks Liz you are doing a grand job and much appreciated on my part. Luckily for us Patty always works in advance and has several cards already uploaded for a couple more Challenges so you wont be denied from seeing her stunning work and this weeks card is not to be missed for sure. And here is the rest of my Very Talented Design Teams Cards and I have to say a very big thank you to all of them for all their stunning and beautiful work, they do The Paper Shelter and me proud, THANK YOU Girls.

Now I have some sad news one of my DT members Patty has broken her shoulder so is unable to actually leave comments on your cards but luckily she has created her card for this Challenge and a couple more so you wont miss her beautiful and stunning cards. I also want to send her my love and prayers and hope that she came through her operation yesterday to create a bionic woman (plates in her shoulder and screws) to hopefully speed her on her way to recovery. I know that both Design Teams send their love and are looking forward to you coming back. And one of the other Team members has offered to take on Patty's commenting till she is able to do it herself, so thank you Liz.
And now for the fabulous cards that the girls have created for you -
