I wanted to do something special for my "team members" for our meeting today, since two promoted and the third caused me to promote.  I was drinking tea the other day, and the package caught my eye….


I'm not trying to promote any particular tea or brand or anything, but I just thought this looked good.  And I think it was a windy, chilly day, and I was a little "peckish" between lunch and dinner, and tea sounded nice.  While it was brewing, I took a good look at the package, and I loved the gold/Pacific Point/Basic Black/Whisper White combination.  So, of course, I had to use it.  (Since Janet and her fabulous wardrobe have been in Florida – although she's back now!  Yay!! – I have to find inspiration where I can, right?)

This was a fun one to make.  I gold-embossed the tea kettle and cup, stamped teabags along the top in Versamark, and "tea"rific in Pacific Point on Whisper White.  Then it was just adding embellishments. (Just for the record, I don't know what that little white flotchy thing is under the scallop oval; it's not on any of the cards.   Weird!!)

This was a strange day weather-wise.  It started out kind of warm, but wet.  By the time we finished our meeting, it was really chilly and the rain was a little chunky.  The dog just came in with snow on his back.  Is that wild?  Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 50s again.  Is this Denver???  I thought I was still in Virginia, but, who knows?

Tomorrow I'll show you the card Liz designed for our Make & Take.  It's so cute, and one of those, "Wow, this looks really hard – but it really isn't!!" cards.

Here are the supplies for the card.  Have a "tea"rific week!!  I hope to show you some more samples for the spring fling soon.  We've extended the RSVP date to Wednesday, so you have  a little extra time!  Thanks for stopping by.
