Lets Have Tea.....

Hello everyone: The month of September brings a challenge that is a favorite for many of you over at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE and that is "ANYTHING GOES" so here are my projects and I hope you like them, I had a lot of fun creating this cute Tea Dispenser, following this fun video tutorial by HEIDI BAKS and this other fun video tutorial to create the mug by WENDY KLEIN.

The videos are fun and easy to follow, this ladies give exact measurements and explain real well how to create this truly sweet projects.  I wish I had some cookies or chocolates to put in the mug but I didn't have time to get any so I just filled the mug with some paper packaging and stuck a couple of Nuvo Drops bottles in there, which lets you know how roomy they are.
My papers are all from a sadly retired line from Lili of the Valley, the image on the Tea Bag Dispenser is from a Power Poppy stamp set called SIMPLY CAMELLIAS, I stamped it on a piece of watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers and Prismacolor pencils.
The little charm is from my stash.

I hope you come and play along with us over at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE because we have two wonderful surprises for all of you.  The first one is that we are welcoming a new team member to our little family, her name is MILLA and her blog's name is MUSTESORMI, she was our Guest Designer last month and we are thrilled to have her.
The second surprise is that we are offering a prize for the winner which consists on a $25.00 voucher to the CAS-ual Friday Stamp Store, which Michelle kindly donated for our winner.

So, come on and play along with my teammates and I over at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, we can't wait to see what you create.

You Are My Favorite Perk.....

Hello Blogging friends: I can honestly say that I'm a "Coffee-holic" (Hmm.. is that a word?😏)
Anywho, I found this image from Art Impression in my stash of NBUS, it's been there for a while because, when I found it during my never ending quest to keep my craft room more or less organized,
this stamp set was among other stamps that were temporarily labeled "Friends" so I decided to ink it up for our new SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge #370 which is "CRAZY FOR COLORING", use any medium you want, like or love.
I love water coloring and I love using my Prismacolor pencils so, this image was colored with both. 

The image is from Art Impressions and it's called "Coffee BFFs
Stamped with Stazon black ink on a piece of watercolor paper and colored with Sakura Koi watercolors and Prismacolor pencils.
The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley (sadly discontinued), the sentiment is from the set.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called UNDER GLASS, the little coffee cup is from a discontinued set from Cornish Heritage Farms.

So I hope you get your favorite color mediums, look in your stash of stamp sets and come and join my teammates and me in the SHOPPING OUR STASH gallery, where you can check out the rest of the team's beautiful creations.
