Week #55 - 'Flower Palette' WINNERS!

A HUGE shabby thank you to everyone for being so supportive of this wonderful, shabby little challenge blog!!!   Another fabby week here in the Tea Room for our Flower Palette challenge --  139 BEAUTIFUL cards and projects this week - and the Shabby Girls enjoyed peeking at each and every single one of them!! We also would like to recognize and thank our 1,208 FABULOUS FOLLOWERS for peeking and joining in on the weekly challenges! We {heart} you all in the Tea Room so very much!!!

Don't forget ... if you're sporting either a Shabby Tea Room blinkie, Tea Time Terrific Top Three badge, Winner badge or Guest Designer badge, contact me to be added to the Shabby Girlfriends page!

Please join me in thanking Linda Langes for joining us in the Tea Room last week as our Special Guest Designer!

A very special thank you to our regular bi-monthly sponsor, Just Rite Stamps for sponsoring the Tea Room challenge last week by providing an awesome cling stamp set and coordinating die kit for our lucky winner!

A QUICK REMINDER ... the Shabby Girls {heart} visiting your wonderful blogs filed with such inspiration, but with the increasing popularity of the Tea Room challenges, it is becoming more time consuming to get around to each and every applicant's submission in order to leave comments.  Here in the Tea Room, we work on an odd/even commenting rotation, so if you are an odd number, you'll find comments from three of the Shabby Girls and the even numbers will find comments from the other three Shabby Girls.  Those who still have WORD VERIFICATION turned on are making our jobs more difficult and sometimes causing computer problems.  Please consider turning WORD VERIFICATION OFF and leaving COMMENT MODERATION ON.   By turning Word Verification off, those that wish to leave comments on your projects will not have to go through the added steps of typing in the caption of random letters before the comment will be posted.  By leaving Comment Moderation on, YOU choose which comments you wish to add to your blog -- so no worries of any spam getting through since you have complete control over which comments you allow and which you delete.  Moving forward, due to the increasing numbers of participants weekly, if you have Word Verification turned on, the Shabby Girls may not be able to leave you sweet comments.  Thanks for your cooperation!

The Shabby Girls thank you ALL for sharing your special paper crafting talents with us here in the Tea Room!
