I've been spending a lot of time creating items for the current Paper Crafts call. One of the styles they want is Shabby Chic - which I LOVE!!! I do however have a hard time keeping my embelli's under control when I create this way...blush...but isn't that the beauty of the shabby style?
I can't share all the ones I've made for the call, but I will share the two I made to apply for The Shabby Tea Room DT call! They requested we create something inspired by this cute tea pot:
I made one Shabby and the other Shabby/Vintage (sort of...) The Shabby Tea Room is a great blog for inspiration and challenges, and you know I love my challenges! Debbie and the ladies make wonderful works of art...wiping off the brown...they really do! Wish me luck - there's some stiff compitition!

This is for my hubby to give me on our anniversary this year. Shamefull, I know...he does get me great cards, but it has our anniversary date on it, and it's too girly for me to give him.
