Take A Break

Hello everyone, it's Mel here again! Welcome to our new dare - 'Take a break!'
The dare involves creating a card incorporating a tea bag or coffee satchel - just perfect for days when somebody may need a quiet rest and break. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you all create for the dare.

This week we would love to welcome our new guest designer - Fiona Carter. We hope you enjoy your time with us Fiona :)))

Also, thankyou so much for participating in the mid week stitching tutorial. There were some really beautiful cards created!

Loved this week's challenge and the card examples that were posted. My main challenge was finding the time to put together what came to mind almost immediately. My card is on my blog:

Coffee Culture Card

Renata said...

I made mine into a tea organiser (held three boxes (with a spine folded in) of herbal teabags in A5 clear pockets, with the top cut down to fit the booklet and taped down.
It was a good idea!! You guys saved me some storage space ;)

--the blue folder on here, I can't post just the image because it rearranges: http://renataharris.co.uk/4.html
