Week #15 - 'Cottage Comfort'

Using this photo for inspiration, create a card or project that has the warm colors featured in the picture and/or stripes!  Get creative ... we want to see your best work!  Most important -- have FUN :)

Note:  You must use the Week #15 challenge requirements and DIRECT LINK your project back to The Shabby Tea Room in order to be considered for the weekly prizes.  Please only link your submission for this challenge and not your entire blog or multiple project submissions.  Questions?  Contact me!

I am pleased to introduce you all to our Guest Designer for Week #15 ... BETH CORNWALL!  Beth is not only a very talented paper crafter, but one of my neighbors and very good friends!  We've been stamping together for a couple years and, together, have learned so much from one another and stretched our creative horizons!  Beth can do any design well, but she really excels with the vintage style!  It has been so rewarding to see Beth blossom from someone who had not really had any previous stamping experience just a few short years ago, into the fabulous paper crafter and designer that she has become today!  Please visit Beth's blog and leave her a little love this week :)

I'm very excited for the DEBUT of our TWO NEW SHABBY GIRLS!  Their Design Team submissions did not let us down ... they are full of all that shabby and vintage yumminess that we all have come to know and love!  Welcome to our little Shabby Family Cathy and Lisa!

And now for some more inspiration from our Design Team Members ...

Audrey Pettit - Audrey Pettit's Weblog
