Week #106 - 'Pennant Party'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  The Shabby Girls are SO EXCITED to debut our brand new team of designers this week -- I know you're going to fall in love with each and every one of them and enjoy being inspired weekly by their shabby and beautiful talents over the next six months!

This week I am our shabby host and I have chosen the theme of 'Pennant Party' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration ...

... and I asks that you create a card or project inspired by the COLORS IN THE PHOTO and INCLUDE a PENNANT, FLAG or BANNER!

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, Jeanne Jachna - A Kept Life!  Jeanne earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #94 challenge - 'A Colorful and Shabby New Year'.  This card is "WOW" ... right??!!  Almost an exact replica of the inspiration picture -- LOVE!!

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

Do you want to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer with the Shabby Girls?  It's as simple as participating in our weekly challenges and WOW-ing us with your projects!  The Shabby Girls might be calling on YOU to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer!!!

And now for some more GOR-JUS inspiration from the Shabby Girls ...

 The Shabby Girls are pleased to welcome our sponsor - Bugaboo Stamps!

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of paper crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!

If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT  for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.
