Chocolate Cherry Crumb Cake

Mmmm...sounds good, huh?  Well, I'm not really a fan of cherries, but chocolate and cake sound good in the same sentence, am I right? ;-)

Okay, so maybe this is a little misleading, lol.  I'm actually here to share a little (non-food) project with you.

I had another plan for today, but I saw the color challenge on SCS and had to participate.  I mean, Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, and Crumb Cake?  It's one of my most favorite color combos!

So I made this:


















Would you like to see see inside? OK. :)












A teabag holder! Complete with card (goes in other pocket) to write a note! :)  What a great little desk gift for co-workers, ladies in your Bible Study, bus driver, teacher...you get the idea! :)

Would you like to learn how to make a neat lil' gift such as this?  You would?  Great! :)

I'll be back later to share a tutorial with you on a related project...my first post in a SERIES!!
Here's a sneak peek:













I know, I know...that hardly seems fair. However, today didn't really go as I had planned, so I ran out of time.  I do have the pictures taken, I just have to put it all together for ya!

Here's the info on the CCCC Teabag Holder:
The background?  That's the "Take A Sip" wheel.
The main images?  From "Morning Cup" stamp set.
Sponged the edges...colored with aquapainter and ink pad lids.

Well, what do you think?

Have you checked out my review/giveaway yet on Living Well, Spending Less?  Run! :)  But not before commenting here about today's project...cause ya know how I love the love! :)

Back soon with a tutorial! :)
ETA: Here's the tutorial!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)
