The Shabby Tea Room - House and Home

Back on May 17th I was the winner in The Shabby Tea Room for the week titled Stars and Stripes. 
My post was titled Patriotic Meets Shabby Chic.  I was so excited about the win that week I was walking on air!  As is the tradtion in the Tea Room Debbie asked me to be the guest designer for week # 21 titled House and Home.  Shown above  is the card that I designed for that week.  Of course I could have never known at the time that I would not be the guest designer for that week, but in actuality I would be on the Design Team.  I was walking on air when I found out and I am still tickled pink to be designing for
Our challenge this week is being hosted by our own Tea Room leader Debbie and
as I mentioned the theme in the is titled House and Home and the photo inspired project should use soft blue, cream and brown.  Here is the lovely photo for your inspiration this week:
Isn't it beautiful with all of it's rustic charm and soft yellow and blue hues.
