Sweet as Sunshine

Hello friends,

Today’s post I share with a happy dance – this is my first as design team member for The Shabby Tea Room Challenge blog! I am so honored and delighted to join the very talented team of ladies. This is going to be an incredible experience and a golden opportunity to learn more about card making and the shabby style. Thank you for holding thumbs for me and all your kind comments when I submitted my cards for the design team call. I appreciate it so much.

The theme for the The Shabby Tea Room challenge this fortnight is “Sweet as Sunshine”. Please hop over to The Shabby Tea Room to see the lovely inspiration photo and more details on how to enter the challenge. Our sponsor is Bugaboo stamps and they offer a lovely prize of 7 digi’s for this challenge!

For my card I was kindly sponsored with a yummy cupcake image that I layered on a paper doily. I coloured the image with my watercolor pencils and paper piece the cupcake layer and cream topping for more dimension. To embellish I added a gingham ribbon, some sequins, a red button and glitter. The sentiment is a a die cut from Marianne Designs Creatables.

    So anders as wat jy gewoonlik doen, Amelia, maar net so mooi soos altyd!!!! Jou kolwyntjie lyk pragtig en ek’s mal oor die doily, die skattige ster-knopie en oulike strikkie!!!!! Die prettige sterretjie-papier is pragtig!!! Regig baie mooi gedoen, Amelia!!! Hulle is regtig gelukkig om jou in hul span te he – geniet dit!!!!!
    Groete uit ‘n koue George!!!!
    Dis so koud hier in ons studeerkamer waar my rekenaar is en waar ek kaartjies maak, so ek was redelik lank laas in Blogland – sit liewer in die wintersonnetjie in die sitkamer of voor die vuurtjie in die braaikamer met my brei- en hekelwerk!!! Maar ek mis al my vriende hier wanneer ek so lank weg was, so ek het maar warm aangetrek en trotseer nou maar die koue!!! Na al die inspirasie wat ek nou weer oral gekry het, is ek ook nou weer lus om ‘n kaartjie of twee te maak!!!!!
