Debbie, I will send you an email for your snail mail address...Thanks for playing along, guys. Stay tuned. I've got more coming...didn't realize I had passed 20,000 and almost 25,000 hits. Gotta celebrate, right?

Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge #114 this week is called, "All Wrapped Up" We are to wrap anything for any occasion in any manner.

After my recent bout with the dreaded flu, I know how comforting a steaming hot cup of tea can be. At CHA this summer, they were making a version of this little tea card at the Papertrey booth. I didn't get to make one but my friend, Patty did. I made a template of the basic pattern then designed my own version.

Since cold and flu season is upon us, I can have these ready to pop into the mail and hopefully make someone's day a bit brighter.

You can make these in minutes. For the basic pattern, you will need:

Cardstock - 7" x 3-1/2"
18" of ribbonScor-Pal
Tea bag
clear cello or glassine envelope
Image layers

Line up your cut cardstock at the 1/4" mark on the Scor-Pal. Score at 3-1/2" and 4". Tape your ribbon to the outside so that the ends are even. Layer and decorate as desired. If you use light colored cardstock as your base, you don't need the inside layer. You can pop these into a regular A2 sized envelope so they will take regular postage.


If you've read this far, just leave me a comment and I'll draw a winner tomorrow by random number picker (Saturday, 11/21) and send this card to you. Be sure there's a way for me to contact you for snail mail address.
