Week #37 - Pick a Cause'

Week #37 in the Tea Room brings Nicole as our host and she has chosen the theme of 'Pick a Cause' for us to play with!  What does this mean?  At this time of celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US and preparation for all the amazing celebrations to come in December with all the religious holidays we all celebrate, we here in the Tea Room are so very thankful for all our blessings ... including all of YOU :)

This week we would love to see you all pick a favorite charity, organization or cause and make a card to celebrate it!  If you don't have a favorite charity or cause, the Shabby Girls have each chosen a cause to work with and you may use one of ours!  Please visit the individual Shabby Girls' blogs to read more about each individual charity or organization.  They are all wonderful and so worthwhile!
If you're interested in sending the creation you design into the charity that you are playing for, please contact the individual Shabby Girls if you need more details or mailing instructions.  Each Shabby Girl will have a link to the organization she is playing for this week, so it's really easy to create and send too!

The 'rules' this week will be really loose ... pretty much anything goes!  Have fun with this challenge -- we can't wait to see what you create!  Will it be a Card for Kids with a child's theme?  Will it be a Card for our Troops with a holiday theme?  Will is be a Card for anemia, breast cancer, prevention of cruelty to animals, ALS, MS, adoption ... the sky's the limit!  Anything goes!  Be sure to tell us which charity or organization you are designing for in your post :)

Note: Because we are sponsored weekly by wonderful businesses who have graciously donated products and in the interest of fairness to all participants, any entries that do not follow our simple guidelines (posted on the sidebar) will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for understanding and playing along!

Please take a moment to help me welcome our Guest Designer this week, Becky Jo Bert! Becky earned this Guest Designer Spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #29 - "Pearls and Pastels" challenge. Please stop by her blog and leave her a bit of shabby {love}!

What a fabulous theme for a challenge. So sorry I can't find time to play in this one. Such a short week to cram everything into before leaving on Wednesday, but my heart is with you on this one!
