crafty creations challenges

happy wednesday! thanks for stopping in to pay me a visit today.
this weeks challenge set for us over at CCC is  coffe/tea. im a tea drinker so thats what i opted for
i used my cricut  as usual.. hey alot of money has gone into my paper supplies machine and carts..so gotta make sure its put to full use :) .. and joys of the season (mugs and steam) Tags bags boxes and more (tea bags)  and jasmine (corners) cartridges.
for the tea bags i cut a tag on ivory cardstock  then just cut  off the bottom to the size i wanted. then i took my colorbox fluid chalk pad (blackbird) and rubbed it a bit  then i cut the same size tag and cut in vellum and adhered that and inked with colorbox  (chestnut roan) fluid chalk pad  added a staple and some string  waaa laa a teabag :) so easy :) i added a couple of buttons and lace  to give it that warm inviting feeling paper is k&co.   so, thanks again for sittin here with me and if youre leaving a comment thank you for that too i love reading them. im off now to blog hop a little  have a super day!  shelly
