Thank you for your cooperation!

The Shabby Girls thank you ALL for sharing your special paper crafting talents with us here in the Tea Room! The talent and inspiration continuously amazes us all ... it was a seriously difficult week to pick honorable mentions, tea time terrific top threes and the winner -- there were SO MANY gorgeous creations - WOW!!!  I had to keep going back and checking the 'definition' of  Vintage Style --Soft, distressed elements, vintage images and found elements such as buttons, crochet trim, flowers made out of old dress patterns.  And now, without further ado, here are the creations that caught my eye this week for capturing the essence of the 'Vintage White' challenge:


1.   Andrea Ewen #4

2.   Kortmanitove #13

3.   Lenet #15

4.   Ellen #27

5.   Rudlis #29

6.   Lea L. #41

1.  Inger #21

2.  Dobra #47

3. Magda(i)Lena #60


Tammy Roberts #80!  Tammy's use of found elements and vintage treasures in the design of her card is what captured my attention ... the lovely lace, vintage buttons, resin frame, adorable felt rose, pearls, seam binding, damask patterned paper, doilie and sewing elements all come together seamlessly to create this vintage stunner!  Thanks, Tammy, for sharing your talents with us all in the Tea Room this week!
