The Shabby Tea Room Challenge

Good evening friends... it's a freezing cold evening in Cape Town, but then it is our Winter and I'm sitting in a nice warm lounge in front of the telly, with a lovely fleecy top.  I know some of my blogfriends in the northern hemisphere are literally melting from the heat.... Don't complain girls, it was only a few short months ago that you were cursing the cold and snow.... so hang in there... your Winter is but a few short months away...LOL

I made this cute little card and thought I'd enter it into the Shabby Team Rooms challenge.  This is the first time I'm joining this challenge blog and I don't think it'll be the last. The DT have some fabulous cards to inspire you, so pop along and check it out. The theme is "My Favourite Things" - you need to use your favourite papers and embellishments.  And guess what?  No Random.org, now that's a first!

The image was stamped by a friend a while ago and I have no idea what her name is, sorry!  Thought it was time to use some of those images that one receives as gifts from crafty friends.  The papers are a mixture, but they are my faves, as are the paper flowers made from my favourite flower punch, purchased from Paperchain, a local vendor!  The sentiment is my newest fave which I've just received from Whimsy Stamps. My other favourite embellie is the card candy in the centre of my flowers - I love them!

I am sooo looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  Hope you have a good one. Thanks for popping by today.    hugs Sharon x

Sharon this is so cute. Love everything about it. I think it is so funny to hear you talking about winter as I am sitting here thinking about turning on the AC. I feel like it has been forever since I've gotten to talk to you. Even though we don't really know each other I still consider us friends.lol. Anyways I hope you have a great weekend.
