Week #88 - 'Shabby Pastel Christmas' WINNERS!

A HUGE, 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 'Shabby Pastel Christmas' challenge -- we received 84 ABSOLUTELY 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 1,691 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 via e-mail to be added to the Shabby Girlfriends Page!

Please join me in thanking Lenet Mos for joining us in the Tea Room last week as our Guest Designer and thank you also to Audrey Pettit for joining us as our November Month-Long Special Guest Designer!

A very special thank you to our sponsor last week, Creations by AR, for sponsoring the Tea Room challenge!

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 talent and creativity makes it nearly impossible to pick winners each week -- and this week was no exception!  I can tell you that I agonized over the decision on which cards and projects to pick this week -- there were SO MANY gorgeous creations that followed the challenge guidelines to a 'T'!   I tried to narrow my finalist choices down to the projects that incorporated all of the colors from the inspiration photo and created something in a Christmas theme also.  So, we have 13 beautiful Honorable Mention Cups of Tea this week -- I simply couldn't narrow it down any further!  And now, without further ado, here are the creations that caught my eye this week for capturing the essence of the 'Shabby Pastel Christmas' challenge:

Milagros C. Rivera #55!   {Love} does not even begin to express how much I simply adore this oh-so-pretty in pink handmade nutcracker!  I want one for my personal collection ... it is absolutely stunning, creative and beyond inspirational!  I am a huge fan of anything pink, so this sweet little fella really pulled on my heart strings this week ... thank you Milagros, for sharing your beautiful Christmas Nutcracker with us all this week!
