Sketch Girl #14

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 
Frenzified is the sponsor for Sketch #14 and the owner, Morgaine, was sweet enough to give the Sketch Girl Designers the opportunity to work with her images.  Would you like to play with her images too??  One random participant of sketch #14 will receive a $15 shopping spree in the Frenzified store and a special not yet released image (link up your creation using sketch #14 HERE)!  Frenzified sells unique digital images and sentiments, that are available individually or as a set. Check out all the images 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.
