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-

  2. Hi Heidi,

    I work for the company that produces Mutual of Omaha’s ‘aha moment’ campaign; check out to see what an aha moment is and the incredible stories we’ve filmed over the last several years. As I came across your website, I couldn’t help but think that you might have an aha moment to share.

    For the 5th year, we’re taking our 34-foot Airstream mobile film studio on the road again for the 2014 Aha Moment Tour, visiting 20 cities across America to capture inspirational, life-changing aha moments from folks all over the country. We are headed to Redding, CA on May 12th and 13th and would love to invite you to share an aha moment, and how your life has changed since. It can be about your work, your family or other life experiences. You would just have to step into the Airstream studio for a few minutes and tell your story on film to our tour producer. Your video will then be posted to, where you will be able to share it with your friends and family via email, Facebook and Twitter!

    On May 12th and 13th from 10am to 6pm, we will be parked at Sundial Bridge North Plaza, at approximately 840 Sundial Bridge Drive, Redding, CA 96001. Guests will park in the lot at the south base of the Sacramento River Trail and walk over the bridge. Here is a link to the location:

    We’d love to have you. Let me know as soon as possible and I can reserve your time slot.

    Many thanks!

    Rachel Clark
