Week #166 - 'Sweet Springtime'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Starr is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'Sweet Springtime' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and Starr asks that you create a card or project inspired by the photo USING PINK, GREEN, WHITE (or CREAM) and a SEWING ELEMENT!

FOR YOUR SUBMISSION TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE WEEKLY PRIZE AND HONORS: 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 and top honors. Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Kristi Schurr!  Kristi earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #159 challenge - 'Lovely Layers'. 

And some more beautiful inspiration from our May Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer ...
