Tea Time!

     It's Friday again so that means a new release from A Day For Daisies!  This week Tammy has added some of the cutest little beverage and fruit images. 

     The two I chose to work with are called "Strawberries and Milk" and "Cutting Strawberries".  Besides the new release, it's also a new challenge.  We want to see some beverage related projects.
     My first card is a tea bag holder card that I made following the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here.  The inside of the card holds two tea bags in the pockets.
 My second card was made based upon a couple of examples I saw on the net.  The only measurements given were the dimentions of the card base so I had to figure the rest out myself.  I have a tutorial coming up next Wednesday that I will share all the howsits and whatsits with you so make sure you come back to check out that post if you're interested.  Obviously this card is larger and holds three tea bags.
     For both cards I colored the images with Copic markers.  I found those fun glittery strawberries at Michaels this week and took advantage of their great 50% off sale.  I'll probably be back in there tomorrow.  LOL
     Hope you'll check out the new challenge at the ADFD blog.  Tammy always provides the cutest freebies so everyone can play along.  You can find all the new images in the ADFD store along with TONS of other amazing stamps.
     I'd like to enter my cards in the following challenges:

 Crafty Ribbons--anything goes
 Little Miss Muffett--things with wings
 Southern Girls--project using lots of layers
Flutterby Wednesday--anything goes with butterfly, angel, or fairy
