Week #82 - 'A Shabby Autumn' WINNERS!

A big, shabby THANK YOU to all of our friends for being so supportive of this wonderful, fun, shabby little challenge blog!!! Such an fun week here in the Tea Room for our 'A Shabby Autumn' challenge -- we received 90 STUNNING cards and projects this week WOW - and the Shabby Girls enjoyed peeking at each and every single one of them!!  We also would like to recognize and thank our 1,631 FABULOUS FOLLOWERS for peeking and joining in on the weekly challenges! We {heart} you all in the Tea Room so very much!!!

Please join me in thanking Wanda Guess for joining us in the Tea Room last week as our Guest Designer and thank you also to Melissa Phillips for joining us as our October Month-Long Special Guest Designer!

A very special thank you to our sponsor last week, Robyn's Fetish, for sponsoring the Tea Room challenge by providing an awesome digital prize package for our lucky winner!

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 and inspires us all!!!  Your extreme talent and creativity makes it nearly impossible to pick winners each week -- this week was EXCEPTIONALLY difficult!   This week we were looking for the shabbiest projects here in our gallery to pick as our honorable mentions and winners.  The definition of 'Shabby Design' is: Layers of softness characterized by the use of ribbon and lace, a time-worn look achieved by inking, pearls, glitter and other such embellishments. And now, without further ado, here are the creations that caught my eye this week for capturing the essence of the 'A Shabby Autumn' challenge:


1.   Clare Buswell #3

2.   Cathy #15

3.   Chupa #17

4.   Lea L. #26

5.   Kristi S. #47

6.   Mindy Baxter #55

10.   Lenet #82

1.  Pauline #1

Amber G. #78!  WOWOWOW!  Amber's shabby design just wow-ed me this week!  The lovely layers piled high with gorgeous papers, doilies and die cuts were beautifully executed!  The addition of some vintage seam binding, lacey pom-pom trim and rustic twine came together seamlessly to add to the charm of this card.  The sweet little leaf trinket pin and clothes pin were the icing on the cake ... thanks for sharing your talents with us all in the Tea Room, Amber!

Congratulations to ALL! Tea Time Terrific Top Three and Winner, please grab your badges from our sidebar that you can proudly display on your blogs! Winner, please contact me via e-mail to claim your prize!
