Week #105 - 'Spring is Near' WINNERS!

Click HERE to see if you're a Birthday Bash WINNER!

Edited to add:  the Shabby Girls greatly appreciate all of your time and efforts to create and submit such LOVELY work week after week!  Please take a minute to review our complete RULES PAGE so that your beautiful work will be eligible for the weekly prizes!  Also, please read the challenge requirements completely each week ... we usually provide an inspiration photo to jump start your mojo, but there are usually additional requirements that you must include in order to be eligible for a prize!  Last week, besides the colors, we asked that you all incorporate some DRY EMBOSSING ... unfortunately quite a few of gorgeous submissions in the gallery were not considered for honors and prizes due to the fact that they did not include DRY EMBOSSING!  We want you ALL to be eligible to win, but we must make it fair for all that play along.  Thanks for your understanding!

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 'Spring is Near' challenge -- we received 76 WONDERFUL 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 1,986 FABULOUS FOLLOWERS for peeking and joining in on the weekly challenges!

Winner #1 - Frost it Pink $50 prize package:  Tammy #46! WOWZERS ... would you look at this bright and cheery spring themed card!  I immediately was smitten with the embossed wood texture background Tammy created for the base of her card, and she had me with that adorable, handmade pink felt bloom, yummy polka dots and pretty gingham check!  Thanks, Tammy, for sharing your amazing design with us in the Tea Room this week :)

Winner #2 - Creative Treasures ribbon & trim prize package:  Linda L. #56!  This is one of those 'now, why didn't I think of that' cards!  How adorable are those yummy polka dots all painted up with colors from our challenge this week -- and with their matching buttons along for the ride too - super cute!  I adore how the Easter egg picks up the polka dot and color palette too ... such a sweet, spring theme card!  Thanks, Linda, for inspiring our followers in the Tea Room this week!
