Tea Party time...JUGS34 47

Mona Pendleton | Friday, May 21, 2010 @ 8:59 PM | , ,

Hi There! Hope you all had a great week! It's time for a template challenge with Just Us Girls! Dana is our Lovely Hostess & Lauren Owner/Designer of My Time Made Easy © is generously sponsoring this challenge. Not only has Lauren provided us all with a MTME © template to showcase but she is giving a free one away to one randomly drawn participant! You MUST play to win! :) Please feel free to use whatever template your heart desires or create one of your own! There are plenty of wonderful tutorials & samples located at Splitcoaststampers.com :)Here is my offering for the JUGS34 template challenge:
I used the MTME © Take Time Pocket template to create this lil' tea gift box.This is the complete Tea Party gift ensemble:For sketch inspiration, I used Laura's awesome sketch from 2Sketches4YouOne can never have too many scallops right? Well this sketch was the perfect match for a lovely double scalloped border using the Spellbinders™ S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities™ Petite.The sweet sentiment comes from the new Waltzingmouse Afternoon Tea Sentiments set which prompted me to adorn this card with pearls :)

I will be celebrating Meri's (my step daughter) 13th Birthday pool party today along with 15-20 of her teenage friends! I may just have to sneak one of these tea bags from this set later tonight & enjoy :) Thanks for looking! Hope you all enjoy your weekend - Be Sweet!

For all the details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls (found on my side bar) as well as LeAnne & Teresa!

Hi Mona! I love the tea theme! Both the card and the template are so fabulous! Great job with all the little interesting details. I love the stamps you used! Hope you survive your step daughter's party!

Crayola58 said...

Here I am again, just to admire your wonderful talents. This tea card is fantastic. I have so many friends who love tea, and the whole set up to drink it... My one cherished friend will have her tea at a darling little round table with a girly tablecloth, there is a vase of flowers, and her teapot and cup of tea in a most wonderful teacup. She will light a sweet scented candle in a beautiful candle holder. And then she sips her tea. The only thing missing is "wearing her best dress". What a wonderful card and template, Mona.

Kathy Martin said...

This is such a fun box! And how you make it! WOW! I am really impressed! I really love playing along with JUGS--but man....those templates...they get me. I don't know if it is because I can't follow directions or mine never end up looking like they are supposed to (which would mean I didn't follow directions)....eh:) I just love how crafty you are! SUPER AWESOME:)
