SSNOTIME162***COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS***



We all have MUCH to be thankful for. With Thanksgiving in the United States approaching we are reminded to Count Those Blessings!!! Today’s challenge is wide open, but it has an overall theme of THANKFULNESS. Some ideas that come to my mind – a thank you note, a small hostess gift, a project featuring our children, home, friends, etc. But the door is wide open – just create something that will in some way convey thanks for all our Blessings! And PLEASE, tell us what Blessings YOU are thankful for as you create your project!




I decided to do a little tea booklet for a friend. Just to tuck inside her purse so that she could have a hot cup of tea during a busy day...
The booklet covers are made with Spellbinders dies, two cut from Kraft cardstock. The tea cup image is from PTI as well as the ribbon. The image that represents the "steam" is from a Whipper Snapper Christmas set.
The inside booklet is from a 11" x 2 3/4" piece of cardstock, scored at 2 3/4" intervals and then scored accoridan style. I just used a piece of double sided tape to adhere the teabags and you could also write a little something on the blank sides.
Very simple***
