Another day, another challenge ...

Well actually it was a through the night creation :lol: Does anyone else sometimes have to get out of bed as they are wide awake at 2AM and their head is full of ideas to make?

Anyway, after hopping around a few blogs this week I stumbled on the Double Dutch challenge blog - and it's such an inspirational blog too. This weeks challenge was to make a tea bag!

I used a new kit by Mary Fran over at NitWit Collections and filled it with chocolate mini eggs. I made quite a few to give away to the little people who come to visit us and this was the only one left to photograph.

Yesterday I went to a crop with some friends and did lots of chatting, gossiping and a bit of crafting - oh and I ate quite a few chocolate mini eggs, played with Debbie's Papertrey stamps and ink, shopped in Jean's shop and generally had a lovely day. Debbie showed me how to make one of her boxes (which is finished but needs something to go inside of it before it's ready to photograph) and I came home with a few cards done and my brain whizzing along with an idea for our cyber crop next week.

(Stamp - Stampin Up, Colours - ProMarkers, Papers - Shabby Princess, Cardstock - Coredinations, Punch - Woodware (I think), Ribbon - Stampin Up, Paper lace - not sure where that came from, I found it in my cupboard)

(Papers and image stamp - Pink Petticoat, Colours - ProMarkers, Stamp - Melissa Francis, Cardstock - Coredinations, Punch - Woodware, Martha Stewart and Marvy, Ribbon - Beresfords)
