GQ Hop day # 3

Welcome back everyone.  Sorry for the late post...lots going on today plus computer issues...ughh.  Anyway today's project was one made out of necessity.  Today when I picked my son up from preschool I noticed his teacher was a bit hoarse.  So I decided to make her a small get well gift that included some of my favorite tea.
Today I changed the colors up a bit-using pumpkin pie for the base and some retired DSP on the inside.  I used the bird again from the stamp set Best of Everything and the "made for you" comes from the same set.  I inked it in lucky limeade and then used a tip from Mary Fish of using the blender pen to take OFF color from a stamp and then colored in the words with the pumpkin pie marker.  The medallion on the front is from the Berry Blossom DSP and with an added button it is a nice touch for a 3D item.  I closed it up with some taffeta ribbon and a sentiment from teeny tiny wishes.



Our hop is continuing all week so keep visiting all of us and leave comments along the way for your chance to win some CANDY...including the candy at my stop the button bracelet.

  4. I really like to make these tea bag holders. A card and gift all in one. I am sure your son's preschool teacher appreciated the very thoughtful gift. :) Beautiful colors, too.
