Week #151 - 'Cute as a Button'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week I am our creative host and I have chosen the theme of 'Cute as a Button' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and I ask that you create a card or project inspired by the COLORS IN THE PHOTO AND INCLUDE BUTTONS!

FOR YOUR SUBMISSION TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE WEEKLY PRIZE AND HONORS: 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 and top honors. Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Tammy Hobbs!  Tammy earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #138 challenge - 'Hey Pumpkin'.

 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.

Please link your creations below by Sunday, February 3rd to play along. Winner and Tea Time Terrific Top Three will be announced Monday, February 4th. We will have an all-new challenge for you to play along with on the 4th as well, so please come back and visit with us again for another chance to win!
