I had so much fun with sketch #14 from Sketch Girl! I decided to make a gift set once inspiration struck.
The tea cup images and sentiments are all available at
Here is the sketch and more pics of my set:
I have to thank Rhonda Gale who participated in sketch #13. She made a card with a coffee cup on it and my first reaction was that it would look so cute with a little tea bag hanging out of it! Then I saw the images from Frenzified and knew immediately what I wanted to do - perfect timing!
I kept true to the sketch and stitched away! The little tea bag is just a piece of paper with string attached to it that I stuck on with a dimensional. I cut a slit in the "tea" and stuck the string thru.
I am a tea drinker, but I am the boring kind - no flavors, just the basic decaffeinated Lipton or Tetley (I know that is probably not considered real tea). I do enjoy picking out fun flavors for others that love tea and this little set will make a great gift. The box in this gift set is "Treat Box", a recent release from Perfect Presentation! The box is the perfect size for a couple Mrs. Field's cookies and tea bags of course!
This box has a great way to open, I like the curve and the slants on the sides. Plus, that little tab on the main box helps keep the box shut - Leigh Ann thinks of everything with her Perfect Presentation line!!!
Plus, see that belly band? That is one reason why digis are great - I took the large tea cup, reduced it in size and then copied away to make a string of them to print out. One digi is like having hundreds of stamps.
