Natural Burlap Gift Wrapping Tutorial

Have you seen the GORGEOUS new May Arts Burlap and Organic Cotton Ribbons?   I absolutely love them.

Here's a peek at what I did with them...You can see the full tutorial on the MA Blog.

I'm linking this up at the Pretty Packages Party #13 (lucky, huh?) on The Blackberry Vine.  Don't you love that name?  She's got my favorite summer activity (picking blackberries) and a favorite Scripture all in one deliciously crafty place.

Teapot Tuesday - Queen of Hearts

This week's Teapot Tuesday  (MMTPT188) destination is Wisconsin and Rita.

Rita sends 30 cards a month to the elderly and sick in her community. She sends cards twice a year to the 110 residents of the nursing home where her mom was for 8 years. She is constantly searching to find charities that she can make and donate cards to. She found Cards for a Cause and participates every month sending multiple cards each and every month. She has recently added sending cards to the military in Afghanistan to her plate, and she makes 25 cards every month to her daughter's rehab unit. She makes wonderful, simple cards with no extra embellishments because everything she does MUST go in the mail and extra postage is not an option. She stamps two hours a day to keep up with her goal of doing all she can to support others with card donations!

In appreciation, we're returning the blessing.  Rita loves to play bridge so our challenge is to send her cards made with cards!
