St. Pat Tea's Day

     I know the pun is horrid, but I couldn't resist.  It was either that or "Top of the mornin' tea ya.", which is possibly worse.
     With that out of the way here's a quick St. Pat's tea bag holder I made to send to a friend.  I really like these as you can tell since this is the second time I have made them last time was for Valentine's day Here.

     For this one, I used one of my favorite House Mouse stamps.  I think the little mouse peeking over the teacup is just darling.  The design paper came from my stash.  I have had it for years as well as the little shamrock thickers and the little heart grommets.  I also used my super favorite Cuttlebug folder, the dotted Swiss.  I have tons of these folders, but I always come back to this one.  I wish they would make a version big enough for a large size card.

      This little teabag holder is going straight out to a list friend who wanted a template for the teabag holder.
If you would like one too, just leave your email address in the comments.
