Monday, September 12, 2011 The Shabby Tea Room!

Hi there and Happy Monday! Today is my last official post as a Shabby Girl at The Shabby Tea Room. I have had such a wonderful time working with Debbie and all the Shabby Girls over the past year and I wish them all well...I will certainly miss them! You'll still see me there, I'll just be participating in the challenges now!

This week, The Shabby Tea Room Challenge has us using this cool inspiration photo chosen by Danielle! It's a masculine theme this week called Boys Will Be Boys! Our sponsor this week is Heartsong Designs!

I just love these new My Mind's Eye Papers from the Lost & Found Portobello Road line! The colors are fabulous and the designs are just perfect! I chose to use their sketch for my card too!

I cut my strips from the damask paper, inked the edges and topped them with my MFT scallop cut dp and a masculine striped ribbon I found in my stash! It's tied up in a knot and I added a little key tied on with a piece of packaging twine! a few brown brads complete the sketch nicely! My sentiment is a brushed metal word by Making Memories that I have been hoarding, um, I mean holding on to for a long time...perfect time to dig it out, huh?!

I hope you'll join us for this fun, masculine challenge!
