And…LOOK for the WINNERS of the Blog Hop TOMORROW!!!

Our New Sets are: In the Forest, Happy Pansies, Sew What, and Floral Tea.For your convenience, all 4 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs TODAY. On Saturday, January 15, 2011, a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning.

While I'm not officially a part of the Blog Hop today, thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my projects for this set, Floral Tea.

I'm a tea drinker (not a coffee drinker), so I'm always excited when I see tea image stamps.

My card is pretty straight forward, not a lot of explanation needed. The DP I used is from Basic Grey's Wisteria paper pad, and the card base is MFP August Greens, matted in MFP Mama's Favorite Purple. I added a little tea cup charm and some gold twine.

As I said before, I'm a tea drinker. I bought a Keurig single serve coffee pot so that my guests could choose their own type of coffee. A bonus is that there are K-Cups in my favorite brand of tea, Twinings Earl Grey. My 3-D project for today is an altered can (from Boy Scout popcorn) in which I can store the K-Cups. I cut the DP from a huge 12 x 24 inch coated pad from K & Company. I made a card to match.

Be sure to check out the official blogs in today's Hop for your chance to win a new stamp set from next month.

I'm a tea drinker (not coffee!), too, Lois!! I love the new life you've given that BSA popcorn tin. They discontinued those this year. I'm going to miss them!! Anyway--fabulous projects! :)
