The Shabby Tea Room #37!

We have a fun little challenge for you all to join in with this week -- and perfect timing hosting this challenge during Thanksgiving week here in the US!  What better time to celebrate everything you are thankful for in an extra special way?  This week we are challenging you all to pick your favorite charity, organization or cause and make a card for it!

I decided to partner with Cards For Kids!

This amazing and worth while organization collects cards for sponsored children who are in different stages of fighting health battles and sends them packages of paper crafted love throughout the year!

You can read more about the Cards For Kids organization on Jennifer McGuire's blog HERE.

You can read more about the current challenge prizes HERE.

If you're interested in making a card to send in for THE CURRENT ROUND OF CARD DONATIONS, the deadline is NOVEMBER 30TH.  Please see Jennifer's blog for all the details.

I couldn't pick just one sweet child, so I chose to make 13 cards and send them all in -- one for each child  currently sponsored and their families!

I am showcasing this one card that I made for TSTR challenge this week ...

... and this will also be my 2010 Christmas Card sent to all my family and friends!  I spent 7 blissful hours yesterday at the clubhouse in my neighborhood with some of my closest paper crafting friends!  We gathered for the day, everyone brought some delicious goodies to share ... we ate, we stamped, we chatted ... we had FUN!  What a GOOD DAY it was!!

Our Tea Room sponsor this week is June Lanum from Lina Beas and she sent the most wonderful handmade trinket pins and crocheted flowers for the team to design with!  She also provided a huge goodie bag of these lovelies for our lucky winner this week ... so run up to your craft space and make a card to submit for a chance to win the yummies!

Please visit the other shabby girls' blogs to see what they have created for inspriation for us all this week:

I hope you have some time this week to play along with our Tea Room Challenge!
