Time for an Inky Antics "Box or Bag" BLOG HOP!!!!

Hi Everyone!
My Friend Jackie from Inky Antics thought it was time that the design team had another blog hop. I agree! Fun fun fun!!!
If you came here from Sweet Crystal's blog, you are in the right place! If you just happened on here, you will want to go back to the start at Jackie's blog.
Jackie challenged each of us to create a gift box or bag using the "Gifts in a Snap" stamps.
They are really cool! I used the #V1-1223 Rectangle Box Template and it was so quick and easy to make my little "Chick Teabag Gift Holder".

I also used Inky Antics #0689H "Moments Shared" and #10885H "Tea Time Chicks" stamps to decorate my box.

The designer papers out of the "Out and About" stack from My Mind's Eye. The cardstock is Simply Smooth White 80# and Turquoise 65# from Discount CardStock.

BTW...they are having a 10% off sale through midnight tonight! Go to the RRR blog for the discount code. ;)

I water colored the images then added some distress ink to the edges. I finished it off with a couple of Prima flowers, a brad, and some yummy tea bags.
I get to use it as a gift already...Jackie loved it so much, I am sending it to her! :)

The hop ends on Sunday, May 1st at midnight Central time. We invite you to visit each DT members’ blog and leave feedback about their creation. Three winners will be drawn at random to receive one of our template stamps. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win. (Limit one comment per blog, please). The winners’ names will be announced on the Inky Antics  blog next Monday, so remember to stop back and see if you've won.

The next stop on your hop is the super talented Michelle's blog.

Thanks so much for "hopping" by!
True :D
