Shabby Tearoom HFC posies

Shabby-posies-HFC



Hello everyone! My family has left and I'm trying to catch up with my crafting and blogging! While I have a ton of things I "should" be doing, I just had to have a little fun playing in a couple challenges first! I wanted to play in this week's Shabby Tearoom Challenge which was a color challenge as well as to use classic patterns of gingham or polka dot patterns.


 I stamped my image from Heartfelt Creations HCPC3306 Posy Patch Garden Delights, and I used the HCD701 Posy Patch Diecuts to cut a few of the small posies to pop up. The sentiment is Our Daily Bread designs Mini Tags 3 .  My designer paper is Melody Ross Homespun Chic and Heidi Grace Ascent. The circle element behind my cut out image is Nellie's Die Cut, and then I layered on the inside portion of a Cheery Lynn Designs Canadian Kaleidoscope Doily which I cut out to just use the inside part to fit over the green layer. The framing behind the sentiment is a Nellie's Multi Die small. I colored the image with Copics and added some red gingham ribbon from my stash. This was a fun one to help me get back some mojo after running around with my grandkids and daughter all last week.


I am also entering this in the following challenges:
Hooked on Crafts - Anything goes,  Karens Doodles  Flower power, Make it Monday - Anything Goes, Corrosive Challenges -  Ribbons and Bows, Cupcake Inspirations - Inspirational Photo, Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge -  Use embellishments starting with "R" (ribbon), Inspire Me Fridays - Always anything goes, Stamp Something - Pretty papers 

Thanks for taking a look and I love knowing you were here!
Hugs,

Hello Grace,
I'm so glad I found you on Shabby Tea Room. I just entered for the first time on this site. The inspiration picture was so luscious!! I too, am a child of God. I get to minister with my crafts and cards thru my women's Bible Study. (Withintheword.com) Like you say, it's a craft that focuses on others.
Your cards are lovely and now I look forward to coming to your site each day.
Would love for you to visit my blog sometime and sign my guest book too.
In His name,

Dear Grace,

This is such a lovely card! I love the image with the different colored flowers. The sheet of dp in the bg with the flowers is perfect for this. I love the gingham paper, and that wonderful ribbon. The paper doily is beautiful!!! This is so pretty! I just love it!

One question- What makes something Shabby? Or Shabby-Chic? I do not know what that refers to...if you could explain it, I'd be grateful!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
