Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room! This week Char is our host and she has chosen the theme of 'Chevrons' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration ...
... and Char asks that you create a card or project using BLUE, GREEN, ORANGE, CREAM AND BROWN WITH CHEVRONS! You can create your chevrons in a multitude of ways - patterned paper, cardstock, ribbon, trim, markers, crayons, colored pencils, beads, glitter ... just as long as we can see the chevron pattern 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 challenge rules will remain in the gallery but will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for your understanding and participation!
I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Anabelle O'Malley - Bits and Pieces! Anabelle is no stranger to The Shabby Tea Room Blog and we always find it such a delicious treat when she joins us with some shabby confections that she has created!!
