Mixy Matchy


Hi crafty people! Today I have a fun, sassy card for you. I'm hosting this weeks challenge at the Shabby Tea Room and I thought it would be fun to use several different patterned papers in one card or project. I do this regularly because I just love that look. Check out the Shabby Tea Room for an amazing inspiration pic too! 


I used several different patterned papers on my card along with some fun buttons, DYMO labels, Thickers, and a digi stamp that I traced onto vellum with a green marker. The digi stamp is from this week's sponsor  Chi Chi Memories!  

Well Chi Chi Memories has a great prize, so be sure to stop by the other Shabby Girls' blogs for inspiration!

Spread your wings

Hi friends, its Sunday night- that means a Shabby Tea Room post (I know, i've been bad bad and those are the only sort of posts you've been seeing here lately... I've been pretty busy lately with home improvements and life...i'll tell you about it sometime.)

Anyway, this week we are using the colors PINK, GREEN, and YELLOW! 
AND Since this week's sponsor is Just Rite stamps, I was able to play with one of their new stamp sets-"Spread your wings". Its a gorgeous set with the oh-so-popular birdcage images. I love how my card turned out. 


Well I hope you play along for a chance to win an awesome prize from Just Rite stamps!

Now be sure to check out the Shabby Girls' blogs for more inspiration, they have some amazing creations this week!

We all scream for ice cream!

This week's challenge at the Shabby Tea Room is to use a charm! 
What a fun and different challenge this is. 
I used a small heart charm that matches the mint green in the card. 


I also used that adorable ice cream image from Whimsie Doodles. Cute huh!?! 
I love how this card turned out. A little retro, a little shabby....just too cute!
