Week #25 - 'Old Meets New' WINNERS!

What an A-MAZING week here in the Tea Room with so many great cards and projects! We had a RECORD BREAKING 186 wonderful paper crafters who submitted designs for cards and projects this week! A big thank you to one and all for being so supportive of our shabby little challenge blog ... we {heart} you all!!!  We also would like to recognize and thank our 669 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! We love to leave you all some sweet comments and having Word Verification turned off makes our jobs much easier!!

Please join me in thanking the talented Ros Crawford for joining us in the Tea Room last week as our Guest Designer!

Thank you to Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy Shop and Pattie Goldman from the Pampered Paper Patch for sponsoring the Tea Room challenge last week by providing 6 yards of Shabby Vintage Seam Binding and a beautiful vintage-inspired rubber stamp for our winner!

The sheer amount of amazing cards and projects submitted this week made the task of choosing this week's winners and honorable mentions a very difficult job ... the quality and caliber of work each week just keeps getting better and better!! It was simply impossible to narrow the 186 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 'Old Meets New' challenge ...
