I'm so happy to announce our sponsor this week - The Cutting Cafe'!

Hello, my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe' and I am loving every bit of this new venture. The Cutting Cafe' offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files. The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software). The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped imaged...One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again.

We will award a 'The Shabby Tea Room Tea Time Terrific Top Three' badge to the three most creative projects!!! The Shabby Tea Room Winner will earn our adorable pink tea pot winner badge and 3 cutting files donated by The Cutting Cafe'!

Link your creations below by Sunday, February 27th  to play along. Winner and Tea Time Terrific Top Three will be announced Monday, February 28th. We will have an all-new challenge for you to play along with on the 28th as well, so please come back and visit with us again for another chance to win!
