A Little Yummy for My Friend

Welome back, Friends!  You're just in time for the
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #80 - "B.F.F! - Best Friends Forever"

This week's challenge is to create a card or project that includes "B"uttons, "F"lowers and the word "F"riend/"F"riendship!

Our sponsor for this challenge is: My Favorite Things

PRIZE: $25.00 Gift Certificate

I used an MFT stamp from the collection, "Two for Tea" for my project....

Here's the other side of the box, which has a small pocket for a teabag.

Oooh!  What's that peeking through that little side window??

Mmmmm....A yummy delicious cupcake to go with the tea!

I hand stamped the inside of the cupcake box - as if that cupcake needed any help looking good (haha!)
Have I ever mentioned how sometimes I really struggle with a challenge - having no idea whatsoever where to start or what to do?  And then, those are the times when I end up creating something surprisingly, better than what I expected.  Strange, huh?  Well this is one of those times...

I needed to use an MFT image, but I could not come up with any ideas - BLANK!  Then thank goodness Linda (my sis-in-law) had a sweet tooth craving & twisted my arm to go with her to get some gourmet cupcakes (yeah, sweets! didn't take much to convince me on that! LOL!)   "Ahhh....."  I thought... all I need was a little sweet inspiration & VIOLA! 

My lovely cupcake gift box not only has windows to give a peek at the yummy goodness within the box, but there is also a side pocket to hold a teabag.  What a perfect presentation for a gift of afternoon tea, huh?
