The Shabby Tea Room #95!

 Hello sweet friends and welcome to the very first challenge of the New Year at The Shabby Tea Room!  This week's challenge #95 is hosted by Sheri and she has chosen the theme of 'Time Flies' along with this lovely photo for inspiration ...

 ... and Sheri asks that we create a card or project inspired by the above photo and USE SOMETHING WITH WINGS!

The sponsor in the Tea Room this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and I have designed my card using the Sammy da Snowman image -- so cute!! I printed the image, colored it in, cut it out and then added glitter for the bling factor!!  I included two adorable, tiny green butterflies flittering around this sweet little winter man!

The sweet sentiment was stamped using the Winter Wonderland and Birthday Wishes stamp sets from Inspired by Stamping - I just received these two new sets in the mail and couldn't wait to ink them up!   The pretty blue snowflake paper is 12 Days of Snow Flakes from My Time Made Easy. The pretty Pear Pizazz rouched ribbon is new from SU!

And there you have it ... a sweet winter card suitable to sending to anyone on your 'winter card giving list'!  Such a fun card to create ... I adore this cheery color palette!!

Wow this is simply stunning. Love your shabby colour combo and how you've managed to colour the snowman to fit the papers. The tucked ribbon, the gorgeous flower and string gives this card the extra pop;) Thanks for playing at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and good luck. Hope to see you back sunday for a new challenge. Bettina xx
