Simon Says Challenge #16

This week on the Simon Says Challenge blog the spec was 'Anything But Card!'

My inspiration for this piece came from a wonderful creation I saw on Mummylade's Blog a week or two ago - She does some fantastic pieces!

I don't drink Tea so I made my cover for my Cappuccino's that I drink by the pint!

I've used Basic Grey 'Sugared' paper and Willow with (Cappuccino!)

I've just been over to Mummylade's Blog to link her from here and guess what she's made for the SS challenge! Yep, another Tea Box - but hers is SO much better than my boring one!

As well as me having to 'rush' this a little I'm putting it down to the fact thet I'm only just starting to learn to 'distress' properly - if you look at my Charmed Crafts Cat card a couple of posts below (Allsorts #13) you'll see I do 'Traumatising' much better than 'Distressing'!

One day Helene I may do a coffee box as good as your tea boxes :)


  1. Lovely idea. Beautiful box. I have the image.I enjoyed doing altered things. Kathleen x

  2. What a great idea - it would make a super gift, I think your distressing is great - I wouldnt have a clue where to start with it.
