Excitement ahead!


It's November already. How did that happen? Here in Wisconsin, the weather change from fall to winter is underway. There's nothing better on a cold, rainy afternoon than a lovely cuppa tea.

On a trip to London several years ago, I reveled in the centuries old business of Fortnum and Mason. If you are a foodie, you likely know this store.

I'm a coffee drinker, but have been working on acquiring a taste for tea. I bought a box of Black tea with Lemon tea bags and found I absolutely love it. My son restocked on one of his trips to London and I stocked up again in spring when I was there.

My friend is a tea lover and I wanted to share my F&M tea with her, but wanted to come up with a fun package. I used Cajun Craze and some retired product. The pumpkins are made using an oval and a circle punch. I placed the punched pieces in an embossing folder and ran them through the Big Shot to get some texture. Soft Suede was used to sponge the edges of the pieces. The circle in back is Mossy Meadow. I cut the stems from Mossy Meadow free hand.

Laura really likes this tea too and was happy to receive this fun little package. I like to share and figure, when I'm out, it's time to head to London! Not the most cost efficient way to purchase tea - but fun!!

So why the heading 'Excitement ahead'? Tomorrow I leave for Orlando for the 30th anniversary celebration of Stampin' Up! 7000 SU! demos from all over the world are expected to attend. There will be 100 folks from our Pals group and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone, learning some new things, receiving fabulous new free products and some warm temperatures. 

SU! events are always so much fun. I'll be sure to fill you in when I return!

Don't forget to vote today!
