Week #65 - 'Technique Week'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week brings Pattie as our fabby host and she has chosen this pretty photo as inspiration ...

... and asks that we create a card or project with EMBOSSING -- wet or dry!  (You need NOT use the colors from the inspiration photo unless you are inspired by them!)

Note: Because we are sponsored weekly by wonderful businesses who have graciously donated products and in the interest of fairness to all participants, any entries that do not follow our simple challenge rules will remain in the gallery but will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Geri Freeman - Paper Wishes!  Geri earned this Guest Designer spot for her win during Week #55 - 'Flower Palette'!

And our June Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer is Viola Mahr - Sunshine - Just a Little Handmade Happiness!

Do you want to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer with the Shabby Girls?  It's as simple as participating in our weekly challenges and WOW-ing us with your projects!  The Shabby Girls might be calling on YOU to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer!!!

These cards are amazing - I was almost intimidated to enter my card. But I did my first one and it felt great! It took me a while to plan it out, but I know I will enjoy entering more challenges here. I feel totally comfortable with this style. I am NOT a CAS gal - it's really hard for me to go there!! Thanks for the chance to enter.
