I'd like to be a teabag...

This is my make for the DT team of Outlawz

Sunday - Songs and Rhymes

The  challenge for this month  is to take inspiration from this poem
 (which was a favourite of my Dad's):

I’d like to be a Teabag

l’d like to be a teabag,
And stay at home all day –
And talk to other teabags
In a teabag sort of way . . .

l’d love to be a teabag;
And lie in a little box –
And never have to wash my face
Or change my dirty socks . . .

l’d like to be a teabag,
An Earl Grey one perhaps,
And doze all day and lie around
With Earl Grey kind of chaps.

l wouldn’t have to do a thing,
No homework, jobs or chores –
Comfy in my caddy
Of teabags and their snores.

l wouldn’t have to do exams
l needn’t tidy rooms,
Or sweep the floor or feed the cat
Or wash up all the spoons.

I wouldn’t have to do a thing,
A life of bliss – you see . . .
Except that once in all my life

I`d make a cup of tea!

By Peter Dixon

Note:  The theme doesn’t have to be taken literally.  You may use any word or phrase out of it for your project.
Here is my card:

For this month our sponsor is: Lemon Shortbread

with a prize of 3 images!

Etsy Shop


Facebook Group

I have used Autumn Park Girl

My card is another in a series, having already made these to a similar design:

Again I started with a white card blank matted with the black then a paper from Stampin Up.
This time I just added the Dyan Reaveley edge stamps with a little added colour from markers. 
I added the Lemon Shortbread image coloured with markers and the sentiment words and teabag stamp from Joy Clair.
These cards are all based on ones that I made during the September virtual retreat that I attended - and I had stamped out lots of the edge stamps!

You will find this on the Outlawz  Sunday Songs and Rhymes Challenge on November 1st

Happy Crafting!

PS The Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop starts on November 6th
