Week #94 - 'A Colorful & Shabby New Year'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Melissa is our wonderful host and she has chosen the theme of 'A Colorful and Shabby New Year' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration ...

... and Melissa asks that you create a card or project inspired by the above photo and USE PINK OR RED, BLUE, YELLOW AND GREEN!

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, Amber Goble - The Country Scrapper!  Amber earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #82 challenge - 'A Shabby Autumn'. 

And some more beautiful inspiration from our December Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer ...
