The Shabby tea Room - challenge #232 - Summer Dreams

Hi everyone and welcome to another fun week over at The Shabby Tea Room! This week it was my turn to pick the theme. I came upon this beautiful picture and was just drawn to it. Ohh how I wish this was my home....
Doesn't it look like a place where you could curl up with a book and relax? I'd love to spend a couple of hours there ;)

This weeks rules: create a card or project inspired by the photo using a home and/or garden theme, flowers and colors from the photo!

This week our sponsor just happens to be Creations By AR. Did you know that I'm on their design team? Adela creates wonderful 3D patterns to play with. Everything from gift bags to home organization and LOTS of goodies in-between! All of the files come in a PDF for hand cutting as well as several options for machine cutting (I use the SVG one). What I like about cut files is that they're fairly cheap and once I have the file I can use it forever!
Creations by AR is all about paper crafting specializing in 3D templates, cutting files and digital images. Visit for inspiration!

I am pleased to offer The Shabby Tea Room participants a challenge discount of 10% off entire purchase during the week of my sponsorship.  The discount code is challenge10. 

Well, are you ready to see what I've made? I chose the darling watering can from Creations by AR. I wanted to keep it fairly simple so as not to take away from the watering can itself but couldn't resist adding a little bling, doily and tag! This file also comes with a little seed packet that you can make. What a darling gift set this would make!

Please link your creations at The Shabby Tea Room by Sunday, August 24th to play along. Winner and Tea Time Terrific Top Three will be announced Monday, August 25th. We will have an all-new challenge for you to play along with on the 25th as well, so please come back and visit with us again for another chance to win!
