Happy  Monday Morning to you!!!
I am so excited it is February...
I love the month, it's full of hearts, love, chocolate
and best of all it gets us that much closer to SPRING!!

It also means it's a new challenge week at "The Shabby Tea Room"!
Our challenge theme for the next two weeks is
"I {Heart} You"
and using the inspiration photo below!!

We have a new to us sponsor this week
"My Artistic Adventures" by Heather Hudson!!

  Oh my goodness, such cute designs and fun papers!!!
I have to say when I printed out my paper from the gorgeous collection
it was "love" at first print!!  Beautiful, beautiful colors!!

Then came the adorable little angel cherubs from
They are just the cutest little cherubs....
Each sheet has the cherubs in 3 sizes and in either shabby pink or shabby aqua!!

I fussy cut the middle size in aqua for my card, and added glitter here and there!
I pulled out a doily heart and added a lattice heart on top...actually that heart
is a "leftover"  negative from another cut heart...
I just trimmed around it ... pretty cool isn't it??
The calender is kind of a stupid/funny thing I did!!
After looking everywhere for a tiny calender like I had in mind,

I gave up and cut it from my REAL one in my kitchen...
now why the heck didn't I just copy it, THEN cut it
instead of leaving a nice square hole in my!!

I added a glittery dove, pretty aqua bow and a Rose!!

Then I guess I was on a creative roll, as my 
WR Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board was staring me in the face
so I decided to make a matching gift box with a cute cherub tag!

Pop on over to "The Shabby Tea Room" blog and take a "peek"
at what the other "shabby girls" have to show you...
