Week #43 - 'Welcome to 2011'!

Happy New Year to all of our friends here in the Tea Room!

This week's challenge is called 'Welcome to 2011' and Nicole is our creative host!  Nicole is asking us all to create a card or project using ELEVEN ELEMENTS!  Pretty cool, huh?  Your elements can include, but not be limited to things such as - cardstock, patterned papers, lace, ribbons, layers, embellishments (buttons, pearls, rhinestones, glitter, etc.), dies, punches ...!  Let your imagination run wild ... just be sure you do the MATH!  We'll be counting your elements, so be sure to use 11 in your design :)

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 (listed on the sidebar) will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for understanding and playing along!

The Shabby Girls are so pleased to announce some wonderful and exciting news ... we have not only one, not two, not three, but FOUR Guest Designers who are joining us this week in the Tea Room to help kick off this brand new year!  Please take a moment to help me welcome these three special and talented ladies ...
