Love Blooms In A Sort Of Shabby Way.

I created this card for this week's The Shabby Tea Room Challenge.  I have specifically entered this challenge because this week's special guest designer is none other than the glorious Denise January!  I just adore her work as her creative talent knows no bounds and continually inspires. Just have a marvel at her crazy beautiful card for the Shabby Tea Room challenge.  Pretty fabulous huh?  So, I just had to play along.   *happy dance*


I thought this week's inspiration photo of the dreamiest bedroom was marvelous within itself, but paired with a few fun (and new to me) woodblock stamps I picked up last weekend from Stampington & Company and Stampers Anonymous, I was cooking with gas.  What an enjoyable crafting session it was while putting my card together for this week's The Shabby Tea Room challenge.  Scrumptious!



Thank you for stopping by as it was a pleasure to have you here.  And a huge heartfelt Happy Mothers Day! to all of you lovely moms and mom-like legends.   I hope your day is just as beautiful as you are!
