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!  DON'T FORGET to sign up as a follower of this blog either thru Blogger or FeedBlitz for your chance to win a $25 shopping spree with Stampin' Up!

Shabby Anniversary
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.   SO...his card shopping is done.  I'm also submitting this for the PlayDate Cafe #33.  It's been a while since I've been to the Cafe!  Regal Rose is the closest I have to rasberry in color...
