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. 🙂

Friday Mashup Challenge No. 107

It’s a Sun Shiny Day!!!

This week at the Friday Mashup, Amanda Corbet is hosting “It’s a Sun Shiny Day!!!”. Makes me want to hum that song from the Brady Bunch…now try getting that one out of your head today. 🙂 Well for this challenge I looked and I looked, but I didn’t have anything that I could equate to the sun, until I came across my Sun Ripened II stamp set and saw that lemon branch. Lemons totally remind me of summer.  They are probably one of my all time favorite fruits, and bring back great memories from my childhood.

The challenge guidelines this week are as follows:

1. Create a project showcasing “Sunshine”.
2. Create an “Easel card” project.
3. Or Mash it Up and create an “Easel Card project with some Sunshine”.

Below is my take on the challenge, and I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Crafting!
