Special Friend Blend

Hello! For today's card I used this DELICATE and PRETTY color combo from the CR84FN23 Challenge:

AND...this FANTASTIC sketch from Card Patterns Challenge #110:

Here's what I came up with:

I used Tea For Two from Papertrey Ink and some Anna Griffin patterned paper that I've had in my stash for YEARS (literally)! I created the tea bag tag by stamping "For You" (from Friendship Jar Fillers by PTI) onto a scrap of cardstock, inking the edges, and attaching it to a piece of cream embroidery floss. Then, when I paper pieced the tea pot, I tucked one end of the floss behind the patterned paper piece.

A dear friend of mine requested an assortment of cards to give as a gift to one of her friends. This is one of the cards for that set. I hope she likes it.

Thanks for stopping by today!

On a personal note: Last week my sister-in-law, her husband and our 3 nephews who live in Indiana spent their Spring Break with us! We had a TON of FUN----despite a few bumps in the road (one lost video camera, one dislocated and broken wrist, one cracked windshield, and one minor case of acute mountain sickness)! I think they're hooked on the mountains now, though, and are already talking about "next time!" HA! Here are a couple of photos from when Tony and I took the boys skiing/snowboarding at Copper Mountain:
