♥ Sending some {Shabby} Love... ♥

... at Christmas! In July!! I made this for this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge. It is called "Relax and Enjoy" and it is to use the inspiration photo's colors, which are yellow, pink, green and neutral(s).


And the Shabby Girls got to play with some gorgeous stamps from our sponsor this week, JustRite! I chose this beautiful stamp set called "Deck the Halls". I love the large and small ornaments in this set as well as the beautiful sentiments.


I also used some lovely papers by Bo Bunny, My Mind's Eye and GCD Studios as well as some Copics, lots of glitter, pink satin ribbon, trim, Liquid Pearls, a button and some twine.

The winner of this week's challenge will win a fabulous prize from JustRite!

 Prize package has a value of $44.90.  Merry & Bright Cling Set and the coordinating Spellbinders Die – 2010 Heirloom Ornament Die!


Don't forget to check out the rest of the Shabby Girls too!

You give me so much inspiration for cards, Melissa. I like checking out your blog to get ideas. Thanks for sharing! I'd be honored if you would check out mine - I'm just getting started, and would appreciate any constructive criticism or advice you might offer. I still need to learn how to make a list of "blogs I love". I'm getting there........slowly!
Blessings,
