Put the Kettle On!

Hello and welcome to this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!

"We have recently instituted a small change regarding the requirements for the weekly sketch challenge.  

Previously, we had no restrictions about the images you could use for the weekly Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge.  But since we all love Waltzingmouse Stamps, going forward we ask that you use at lease one WMS image on your submission. We reserve the right to remove entries that do not comply with the guidelines as it is not fair to the players who do. Including WMS images on your project adds to the creative inspiration we gain each week from your wonderful creations."

And I can't get the italicized to come off so you will have to bear with me through this post - is it Friday the 13th or something??!!

Here is our sketch this week, provided by one of our wonderful Mischief Makers, Edna Morrisedie!

 I decided to make a little teabag holder that you could take to a friend's home so that you wouldn't feel so bad about dropping in unannounced!

 I stamped the top part of the holder with Gingham & Co. reverse polka dots in Vintage Photo distress ink. I obviously didn't ink it up properly but I decided that I would go with this look regardless.

The sentiment is from Afternoon Tea Sentiments and the little cup and steam is from Afternoon Tea.

For the bottom of the holder, I stamped with Memento Rose and used the stamp set Way out West.

I held the tea bags in with some simple glue dots and then decorated the front so that it was pretty and so my neighbour would let me in lol!
