Tea for Tuesday and **SPECIAL GUEST STAR**

Good morning, all!  I'm still on a break today, but my friend Elizabeth is our Special Guest Star today, and she's got a beauty of a project for us!

Hi, my name is Elizabeth, and I blog over at Broken Treasures mostly about paper crafting with a few kids projects and life as a mom of three little ones (ages 5, 4, and 2).  I'm so thrilled to be guest posting over here at Suburban Prairie for her Tea for Tuesday :)  Thanks Ann for having me :) Today I have a fun little Mother's Day gift for you (or any friend's gift really) called a tea bag card.  I found a simple video tutorial over at DIY Life to make this sweet project :)  
What you will need to make this gift is:
two teabags
two card stock or patterned paper pieces (one 6 3/4  x 3 1/2 inches AND one 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches)
Ribbon and embelishments
The materials I used for this one were:
Card Word Puzzle Stamp Set (this is one of my favorites)
White ribbon
Here is the video tutorial
It really took me less than ten minutes to complete (from start to finish) - so simple and easy. I stamped, colored and cut out the flowers.  I used my Cricut (Art Philosophy Cartridge) to cut out the title piece.  The sentiment is from the Say It In Style Stamp set.
Here are some more photos of my finished project
Why not make one of these and pair it with a spring mug?  I think it makes the perfect gift :)
  Thanks again for having me!  I hope you'll stop by Broken Treasures and say "hi".  You'll also find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest (where I find a lot of my crafty inspiration).  Have a blessed Tuesday!


Thanks so much for the great tutorial, Elizabeth!  Doesn't this look like fun?!  Give it a try, and enjoy!
