A big shabby thank you to everyone for being so supportive of our shabby little challenge blog!!! We received 89 SENSATIONAL cards and projects for our 'Welcome to 2011' challenge this week!! It's so good to see everyone back on track after the hectic holidays and finding time once again to play in the Tea Room :)   We also would like to recognize and thank our 862 FABULOUS FOLLOWERS for peeking and joining in on the weekly challenges!
