It's Tea Time

It's been too long since I've posted something new.  It's been a crazy month.  I have a cute little tea note today to show you.  A good friend of mine shared the how-to for this.  I should get busy and make up a bunch for little gifts.  It's really simple to make.  A long piece of cardstock scored and folded.  A pocket is made by one fold.  Then it's ready to decorate.  The Gingerloft image is perfect.  Take Time for the Simple Things.  A rustic bench.  Some pretty flowers.  A good reminder.  Hop on over to Gingerloft and purchase this bench with flowers so you can make some beautiful creations.  You can find it in the Scenic section.  It's called Rustic Bench and is only $3.00.

I used a deep rose cardstock for the main part of the note.  I colored the image to match the flowered paper.  I love the combination of colors and the bright springtime look.  Here's the note opened to show the tea bag.

A couple of close friends have recently been in the hospital.  I plan on slipping a few of these tea cards into a basket of goodies.  A warm cup of tea always makes things better.


  1. So sweet, Vicki! Love that adorable image. And you are so right...we often need to the reminder to keep life simple, and to take time for little things that end up being the most important things in life. Which makes me think...we need to have that tea time soon.
