Meet the newest SHABBY GIRL!

Thank you to everyone who took the time out of your busy schedules this past week to submit cards and projects for our Design Team Call!  We had such a wonderful array of creations submitted ... it was very difficult to choose just ONE person to join our team.  You are all so talented and amazing!

Although we only had one spot open for this mid-term replacement DT spot, rest assured that the Shabby Girls had so much fun perusing all of your wonderful submissions.  If you submitted for this DT Call, but were not chosen, please check back with us after the first of the year.  The current DT term will expire in March, so we will no doubt be doing another call and looking for some talented, shabby designers to join our fun little crafty family this spring!

So, without further ado, here is the announcement you all have been waiting for!!  Our DT call asked for you all to create a card or project inspired by this stunning photo:

The red and white color palette is so crisp and clean and I love how it plays against the sparkle of the glass ornaments and glass stemware on the table!  The flowers and berries in the centerpiece are beautiful and I love how they match up with the little rings around each candle in the beautiful light fixture!

The RUNNER UP entry is the wonderful and shabby banner decoration ...

designed by EMILY HUGHES!  I just {heart} everything about this sweet banner - from the papers and inking to the seam binding, buttons and flowers - gorgeous!  The Shabby Girls would love to invite Emily to Guest Design with us during week #46 in the Tea Room :)

DRUM ROLL, please!  The 1st place winning entry is this absolutely stunning glass snow globe decoration ...

... and the winning designer and new Shabby Girl is MELISSA BOVE!

CONGRATULATIONS, Melissa, and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room Design Team!  We're so happy to have you join the Shabby Girls :)

A big thanks again to all who entered ... we really love that you took the time and energy during these busy days leading up to the big Christmas holdiay to submit for our shabby little DT call!  Your time, efforts and talents mean the world to all of the Shabby Girls!
