' JUST FOR YOU ' GC87 Random Redhead Challenge






















Hi, here we are again at Gingersnaps Creations using a TeaBag Template. If you are a member of the popular Yahoo Gingersnappers Group you can download this template as a pdf and then its easy peasy.


I have to say I made mine the really easy peasy way using Double Sided Card for both the main card and the template. A Papermania Greeting, Gold Embossing Powder and Gold Paint Dabber and of course my well used and favourite stamp by Kelly Panacci. Oops nearly forgot another lifesaver Velcro so the Teabag could be opened to reveal the Sticky Note pad and also the Teabag can be detached from the card as a gift, pretty neat idea.......... You can see other ideas over at Gingersnaps and there are some fab ones.


After having made this I got to thinking what else could be popped inside.........a handkerchief for Mothers Day, a gift voucher (the plastic kind), a fold up skeleton for Halloween.............lol oops better stop now before I get really silly. So come on over and join in the fun and will look forward to seeing what you create.
Thank you for popping in and for your terrific support, take care, Annette x
PS. Just noticed my posting has come up on the wrong day and at the wrong time, did it this afternoon after my Art Class so not sure whats going on here...........tis a puzzlement.
