This tea holder holds 2 of my favorite tea flavors: Lupicia's Malama and Lanikai. BFF, Beve, introduced me to High Tea maybe 10 years ago. The idea behind this gift is because we won't be together to celebrate our birthday and tea, one tea bag is to be celebrated on her birthday and the other on mine. The two quotes state:
A little cup of Friendship
With a bag of tea
When you relax and drink this
Remember it brings love from me.
Brew on January 27, 2010
I wish we could sit together
And drink a cup of tea.
But since we can't,
When you have this one,
I hope you'll think of me!

I hope she likes it! It should arrive on her birthday.
PS: Special thanks to DeAnna. I LOVE my new Fiskar border punch. Thank you, girlfriend!!!

Here is my entry.
I got a great page kit at the Danbury Retreat presented by By Design Scrapbooks (ala “the Pink Store”) http://www.bydesignscrapbookboutique.com/. I used many of the papers from that page kit for this card. The flower is by Bazzill (I think) and a whole bottle was given to me by my PAWS Secret Santa. Button is from my stash. I used cotton string for the button floss. Ribbon by HL.
Go check out http://sketchesbytamara/blogspot.com/ for artwork by the rest of the design team members. Enjoy!

Remember those 3 x 3 cards I quickly created a couple of days ago? Well, I took the idea further. I created envelopes to fit the cards, stamped the saying on the envelope and created a 3.5 x 3.5 box to fit the cards! Perfect for a quick gift to someone.
Now for the candy:

This year I have decided to use my stash. I'm spring cleaning this week, getting things ready for a garage sale. Today I'm using the frames by TLC. Leftovers from my day as a TLC Consultant. I know I gave several of these away but some made their way back home . . . in my hands. So here's what I'm going to do with them.
Let's pick up a set of stamps I purchased a couple of years ago, intending to use them for tags. To date, I have used them only a handful of times. After this project, it's time to retire them into someone's stash! I think they are a SU stamp set.
After cutting out the inside frame of the TLC diecut, I cut out the nobbies. Stamp onto a 1" white square, with matching ink. 1st mat is made from the inside square of the TLC diecut. 2nd time with a 1-3/4" white square and matted them again on the TLC outside frame.
3x3 cards out of white scraps was then cut. Check out the inside sentiment of each card using the bottom words on the stamp:
A little watercoloring here and there and now I have 9-3x3 cards using up my stash! Wow, all done in an hour and the kiddies are still asleep ;o)
Have a wonderful day creating!
