Moxie Fab World-Home Decor Challenge

This is another challenge from Moxie Fab World's 350 Cards and Gifts Week.
We are to create a paper crafted home decor item to give to someone dear.
You have until midnight EST on Thursday, April 21st to upload your project here:

I make these Note Pads to give along with a Tea gift item. Did you know I worked in a Tea Shop at the Mall selling loose teas and all the accessories that go with it? Haven't been able to work there these last few months, but I still buy tea there.

My Project: Click on the photos for more details. I try to coordinate the note pad colors (see 2nd photo) with the outside cardstock and pencils. I bought a bunch of these note pads a while back at AC Moore and cover them with cut-to-size card stock, type "Things To Do...after I have my tea" on my computer and then stamp a tea cup or tea pot on another piece of card stock. The image is colored and cut out then popped onto the front. I glue a magnet onto the back panel so it can be stuck on a refrigerator door, there is a small piece of magnet glued on the pencil too. Found an 8 pack of these glitter pencils at Target's Dollar Spot.

Cardstock: Purple is from Bazzell; White is PTI
Stamp: tea cup is Stampin' Up
Ink: Sepia from Archival Ink; purple, yellow, lime marker pens; glitter pens outline the image
Embellishments & Tools: Sheer ribbon is from Michael's; Yellow glitter is Stickles

Haven't been on my favorite Blog sites as much as I would like lately, but don't give up on me yet ~ I promise to try and catch up with you all soon. XOXO Helen
