Week #23 'The Delicate Cottage Rose' WINNERS!

What a wonderful week here in the Tea Room with so many STUNNING cards and projects! Big hugs and thanks you to the 104 wonderful paper crafters who submitted designs for cards and projects this week! When I think it can't get any better ... you surprise me and take the level of your creativity and inspiration up a few more notches ... simply BEAUTIFUL ... one and all!!!  We also would like to recognize and thank our 640 FABULOUS FOLLOWERS for peeking and joining in on the weekly challenges! We {heart} you all in the Tea Room so very much!!!

The design team members thank everyone who has adjusted your blog settings to turn Word Verification OFF and leave Comment Moderation ON!

Please join me in thanking Lindsay Amrhein for joining us in the Tea Room last week as our Guest Designer!

Thank you to Squigglefly for sponsoring the Tea Room challenge last week, providing such gorgeous images for the design team to work with for inspiration and supplying a prize for our winner!!

The level of creativity and expertise made the task of choosing this week's winners and honorable mentions a very difficult job ... the quality and caliber of work this week was simply AMAZING!! It was simply impossible to narrow the 104 entries down to just 6 honorable mentions, 3 Terrific Top Threes and 1 winner, so this week we have 12 designs highlighted instead of the 'usual' 10!  We thank you ALL for sharing your special paper crafting talents with us here in the Tea Room! And without further ado, here are the designs that caught my eye for capturing the essence of the 'The Delicate Cottage Rose' challenge ...

2.  Lori #22

3.  Carol R. #40

4.  Lizzi Droege #52

Lenet #81!  Lenet is a weekly participant here in the Tea Room since almost day one and has continued to astound us week after week with her shabby and vintage-inspired designs.  Lenet has earned several honorable mentions and TTTT mentions ... but this week she is the winner with her made-from-scratch hat box inspired by the hat box in the inspiration photo!  The patterned papers and embellishments Lenet used in her design look like they were taken right off the page from the inspo photo ... the lovely roses, lace trims, trinket pins, pearls, tulle and stitching that Lenet incorporated into her design this week just tied together in the most lovely way to create a one-of-a-kind vintage treasure!  Thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us all in the Tea Room, Lenet!

Congratulations to ALL! Tea Time Terrific Top Three and Winner, please grab your badges from our sidebar that you can proudly display on your blogs! Winner, please contact me via e-mail to claim your prize!
