Week #86 - 'Homespun Fall'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week I am our host and I have chosen the theme of 'Homespun Fall' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration ...


... and I asks that you create a card or project inspired by this photo using the COLORS and FALL THEME pictured here!

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, Mariya Solovieva - Mariyca's Handmade!  Mariya earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #77 challenge - 'Birthstones'.

Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy was born from my love of all things vintage and shabby!  I adore creating mini masterpieces out of paper and glue ... and the addition of pretty little bits and bobs of shabby treasures and beautiful seam binding adds such dimension and texture to projects!

I hand tea stain all the seam binding in my Etsy shop with tender loving care!  I currently have 15 beautiful colors in my shop:  http://debssimpletreasures.etsy.com.
