A New day a New Challenge :)

A couple of days ago i came across a NEW challenge blog!….Which just happens to be ‘right up my street’ as they say…lol  The Shabby Tea Room  The name alone made me wanna just go and play :) Also this week their guest designer is only the one and only Melissa Phillips…*Oh how i drool over Melissa’s creations every time i visit her blog*

This week there is a photo for inspiration and the challenge is to use scraps! I have boxes and boxes of scraps…way too many to even go through…lol However i do have a ‘little’ organisation when it comes to ‘certain’ scraps, such as me basic grey paper pads…well i mean ya only get 2 sheets of each don’t ya…so i save every tiny scrap and keep them in the books…haha

So here is what i came up with for this weeks challenge!


I used some scraps from basic grey and some die cut bits and chipboard butterflies from K & Co .I’ve had all these for like…forever.I have loads of die cuts and wotsits and wotnots and yet i never ever use them…I think that’s gonna change.*Think it’s about time i started using some of this stuff*

….And yes i’ve been doing the whole paper pricking thing again…lol It does take quite a while but i Lubs the look of it. Everything was distressed with the Mr Holtzy stuff

The bottom section of the card is blank as a name will be getting added there :)

Happy Easter everyone! *Hope i get an easter egg…lol Mmmmm…Chocolate buttons* hehehe!

Simply {sweet}! I love how you captured such a beautiful and shabby look in your design -- the butterflies and pearls add just the right touch! Thanks so much for joining us in the Tea Room this week. I hop you can come back and give our new challenge a try on Monday :)

Beautiful card! What a great idea to keep the scraps inside the original covers.... eeeee, I'm not that organized. I'll have to try it, though :) I hoard those lovely chipboard pieces, too!
