It's a Big Shabby Tea Room Birthday Bash and Blog Candy!

The Shabby Tea Room is celebrating it's 1st Blogaversary, so we're having a Big Birthday Bash and we want you to get presents! You can find all the details about all the fabulous prizes at The Shabby Tea Room Challenge blog...and...I'm offering BLOG CANDY to one lucky Shabby Tea Room participant too!

*warning...this is a lengthy post!

First, let me tell you about this week's challenge! Our sponsor is Blackleaf Studios! Clare is our hostess this week and all you need to do is use this super fun photo for inspiration and create a card, banner or gift set to celebrate our 1st Blogaversary!

I think I'll show you my card before I tell you about the BLOG CANDY! (I know, I know!) Here it is...

I used Blackleaf Studio's Tea Party stamps in honor of The Shabby TEA Room and came up with this brightly colored card based on the inspiration photo colors! My banner is cut with the My Favorite Things Banner Day Die-namics and stamped with letters from the MFT Wendy Alpha set. I used a Fiskars edge punch to make my die cut border and added some fun colored shabby seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy Shop and a little beaded trinket pin! Gems give it the perfect blingy finish!

Now, for the moment you have been waiting for...Wanna see what fabulous present you can get?...It's a Heartfelt Creations Stamp and Die Set!!!

Here's what you have to do...First, you must participate in The Shabby Tea Room 1st Blogaversary Challenge this week...and then come back here and tell me that you did...just leave a comment telling me which number entry you are! Easy peesy right! I'll choose randomly from everyone who participated in the challenge and left me a comment to tell me so!

Be sure to stop by and visit the rest of The Shabby Tea Room Design Team blogs:

We're saying "See you soon" (I don't like goodbyes) to both Cathy and Clare after this week. :(
These two very talented ladies have been such an inspiration to me!

But, that means we have two new Shabby Girls for you to visit...
