The Shabby Tea Room #112 - Final Guest Post!

Today I am sharing my last guest post for The Shabby Tea Room. My goodness how quickly the last month has gone by! I have had a wonderful time. Thanks so much to Debbie and crew for making me feel so welcome! You ladies have been such a blessing to me! So now on to this week's challenge...

'Spring is Love’ – Create a card or project inspired by the COLORS in the photo posted below and INCLUDE FLOWERS, POLKA DOTS and a HEART!


And my interpretation...


A better view of my polka dots (courtesy of a Swiss Dots embossing folder) and flowers...


and my heart... a darling button from my stash...


This challenge I went with another hodge podge of colors. I tried to pull out some green, shades of pink and off course that lush lavender shown in the corner of the inspiration photo. The Shabby Tea Room challenges are always a joy to play along with and this one was no exception! Thanks for reading and until next time... blessings...
