The Shabby Tea Room – ‘Let’s Have Tea’ & The Friday Mashup No. 113

This week’s theme at The Shabby Tea Room is ‘Let’s Have Tea’. It is a photo inspiration challenge, and let me tell you, the photo made me want to put the kettle on and get out one of my favorite books.

Below is my interpretation of the challenge, I’d love to see what you all come up with.

Happy Crafting!


p.s. I am also submitting this entry to the Friday Mashup No. 113 ‘Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice’, because in my book there isn’t anything more girly or feminine then Tea Time. 🙂

Dynamic Duos Challenge No. 52

Dyanmic Duos is celebrating their ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

In celebration this week’s challenge is to create a project using one of their PAST COLOUR COMBOS. I opted to use the color combo from DD#13 Early Espresso & Crumb Cake.

My all time favorite stamp is Definitely Decorative Avian Toile. It is truly elegant, and I have used it many times, but never for an easel card. This week I decided to combine all three, the color challenge, my favorite stamp and easel card. Below is what I came up with. Love the result!

I can’t wait to see your take on this challenge. Happy Anniversary to the Dynamic Duos Team, and thank you for your continued artistic inspiration!

Happy Crafting!
