Anyone for Tea ??

Afternoon All,

Well as I said in my last post my mojo had disappeared I have to say it's not fully back but it's getting there lol
I decided that a card was just to much to think about at the moment so I decided to make this fab little gift for a tea lover the tutorial was made by Sandie over at Whiff of Joy here is the link if your interested http://whiffofjoy.blogspot.com/search/label/Tea%20Bag%20Holder
It really was so easy to make and makes a perfect gift for tea lovers or even someone who is sick I think im either going to give mine to my Mam for Mother's Day or my Nana as she loves her tea :) I unfortunately don't like tea or coffee my weakness is Diet Coke I live on the stuff I know im so naughty lol.

Well anyways the reason I made this gift was to enter the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge which is Afternoon Tea
I didn't have any stamps that would suit the theme so I have used one of the Fab diecut squares instead.

Sorry the picture is bad I can't get the hang of taking nice pics this is the front.

This is the inside which hold 2 teabags etc 

Cardstock is Color Core Blue Lilac
Floral paper is from my stash I dont know where it's from :(
Silver mirri card from stash
Lili of the Valley Die Cut Image 
Pearl bow I got from Ebay
Diamonte Gems from Stash 
White Ribbon from Stash
Glitter is Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating in Lily White

Morning all,

Well I feel so bad it's been so long since I have blogged I haven't been feeling great and I have completely lost all inspiration and mojo for card making I have been so busy with my commissioned orders and I have 120 wedding invites for a friend to complete over the Easter holidays so have been planning and ordering products for her and then when I do have some time to craft I go blank and can't create anything so anyway enough ranting I have actually got a card to show today yay!!! I ordered the spectrum noirs on create&craft last week and they arrived on Friday so I had a little play with them on today's card.

I have used my favorite color on this card which is Pink and my favorite medium Sparkles lol and also            one of my new Saturated Canary Digi Stamps I really do love them.
