Even though this week has been so busy.......I found a few minutes to create a card for the
Shabby Tea Room .

So I rushed to get it finished, and guess what.......I forgot to link it! Oh well that happens some time!
The challenge this week is to use butterflies...............I embossed the background with Butterflies and the large Butterfly is cut using a Martha Stewart cartridge.

I'm really hoping to get better at doing Shabby chic!
So here is my card...........hope you like it.

Head over to the Shabby Tea Room, look at all the beautiful creations and be inspired.

I really appreciate you stopping by and thankyou so much for all your kind words!

See you soon

  2. Love the card... I am glueing together one for the challenge at Polka Doodles that has butterflies. I can use it in both... I also finished 2 more cards today.

  10. i believe you are already great doing the shabby chic, lol

    i have been so occupied with things at home and here and there. it gets to be crazy and then i just can do so much at a time and it takes me forever to task. but, i still love you and i have to check tereesa's and alyssa's blog to see if they have any updates. i feel so bad i haven't lately.

    you keep all these goodies coming up. it feeds my soul, :)

  11. I would so you have shabby chic mastered! This card is beautiful! The butterfly is gorgeous and your elements work together so perfectly. You've got such a good eye!
    (I followed your lead and went to a second hand store! I was able to purchase a few crafting supplies that remind me of you and your work. I just hope I can figure out what to do with them to create something even half as beautiful as you make!!)
