Week #85 - 'Happy Halloween'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Fran is our wonderful host and she has chosen the theme of 'Happy Halloween' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration ...



... and Fran asks that you create a card or project inspired by the HALLOWEEN THEME in this photo AND USE PURPLE, ORANGE, BLACK & NEUTRALS WITH TWINE OR RAFFIA!

Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Joanna Munster - Inspired by Stamping!  Joanna earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #76 challenge - 'The Sweet Days of Summer'.  And, I have some additional exciting news we are happy to share with you all today ... for those of you who follow Joanna's blog, you know that she launched her very own line of beautiful stamps a couple of weeks ago!  Well, it is with great pride and pleasure that I can share with you all today  that I will be one of the designers on Joanna's inaugural design team - yippiee!  For the official announcements, please visit Joanna's blog and my personal blog - Simple Treasures!  Joanna used the Tricks and Treats stamp set on her card design today!

These unique and earth friendly flowers are designed with lots of love. These flowers are carefully pieced together to bring them to life.

Anna is graciously providing the Tea Room winner a $20 gift certificate this week!
