The Shabby Tea Room Challenge #216- "Tic-Tac-Toe"

Good Morning Friends- I think Spring has officially arrived! Our weather is going to heat up here in Northern Ca. (Into the 90's we go)-UGH!! But it's cooler than summer, so I will take it! Got to have some prep for the summer for sure.
So,this week in The Shabby Tea Room, Shaz is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'Tic Tac Toe' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration! Shaz asks that you create a card/project inspired by the photo and select 3 squares in a row to use on your creation either diagonal, vertical or horizontal. 
(You may use more than one row of three, but it has to be a complete row.  For example: if you use pennants, fabric and buttons it is 1 row. If you then want to use gingham also, to complete that row you must also use pearls.)
For my card, I used the horizontal middle row (pearls, ribbon, and polka dots), and then I also used the vertical middle row (fabric, ribbon, and flowers). The pearl is on the bunnies eye. The ribbon is green moss seam binding. The polka dots are not only on my bunny, but also on the strip of yellow and white paper. The fabric are my leaves from a ginham fabric and the turquoise tulle behind the flower. and then of course a yellow spring flower to top it off! What a great challenge, and so much fun!! Thanks Shaz, for the great inspiration this week!
Our sponsor this week is Digital Papers by Janet
My bunnie is from her "Bunnies Label" digi. I loved all of the bunnies on this sheet and it was difficult to pick one. I think I am going to have to make some more bunny cards for next year. To think I might get ahead of the game for next year-Haha!
Come play along with us this week in The Shabby Tea Room. I wonder which row you will Tic-Tac-Toe in? Can't wait to see what you come up with :)
Have a great week-Heidi

The Shabby Tea Room Challenge #215- "Pastel Goodness"

Hi There Friends-
Hope your easter weekend was a gereat one, hopefully you celebrated with family and/or friends. This week in The Shabby Tea Room, Diane is our creative hostess and she has provided us with this beautiful pastel inspiration photo. She asks that we use pastel colors only to create a card/project and to include flowers and polka dots.
Our sponsor this week is Creations by AR
I chose to work with a library pocket and tag cut file. I included lots of felt flowers that I cut with one of my dies, and I made a patchwork design out of various paper scraps I had in my stash. It was a fun card to design, and I love how it turned out.


I hope that you all will join us in The Shabby Tea Room this week, and play along with some pastel colors, flowers and polka dots! It is a fabulous and fun combination!
Have a great week-

Hi There Friends-

What beautiful weather we are having here in Northern California. I am visiting the beautiful town of Mt. Shasta, just an hour from my house. I will be here enjoying the stunning mountain views for the week and scrapping to my hearts content, while looking up at this majestical snow covered mountain. But, I am on my iPad and having some trouble editing this post. I had it started on Friday last week, knowing I would be gone and would just add last minute details this morning, but my iPad won't let me scroll down in post to continue editing? So, I can only add to the top of my post-sorry. I hope you are busy getting ready for the Easter holiday and will be enjoying some wonderful family time with your loved ones!

This week in The Shabby Tea Room,  Lenet is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'Easter Sweetness' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration!   Lenet asks that you create a card or project inspired by the photo and include POLKA DOTS AND/OR STRIPES!

My card features an Easter Bunny Shaped Card file from The Cutting Cafe who is our sponsor this week. 

I hope you have a great week and enjoy some crafting time. Come join us The Shabby Tea Room.

The Shabby Tea Room-Challenge # 213-"Floral Fantasy"

Hi There Friends-
Sometimes I just hate technology! I have been out of town for work, and I scheduled this post to go live on Monday Morning, and just got back into town-and guess what? It didn't post for me-UGH!! My apologies!!
This week in The Shabby Tea Room, I am the creative host! I challenge you to use this photo ofcolorful beauty to inspire you as you design a card/project. Please include COLORS FROM THE PHOTO, FLOWERS + RIBBON/LACE!

Our sponsor this week is "Paper Sweeties."
When I found this photo for inspiration, I fell in love with not only the colors, but the perfect bouquet of flowers and new instantly that I wanted to create a card. This is what I came up with:

I paper pieced little Abigail's clothing and colored in the bow on her dress with my Copic markers. I also colored in the watering can and her body and hair using my Copics also. The stamped sentiment is from Paper Sweeties, "Live, Love, Grow."
I hope you enjoyed my card and thanks for visiting me! Now, head on over to The Shabby Tea Room to see what the other designers and our monthly guest designer have created and play along also in our weekly challenge!
Have a great week-
