Tea Cups Filled with Kisses!

Today I am linking up with several of my high school girlfriends for a "Friendship Tea" and wanted to make a little something for the girls.  It's been MANY years since we graduated and it has been fabulous to see some faces that I haven't seen since graduation day!

 Here's an example of one of the tea cups.
Each one is different from the others ... the only thing they have in common (other than the shape of course) are the yummy Hershey Kisses they are filled with.

I have used various 12x12 two sided holiday design papers to create my tea cups.  
The die I've used is Sizzix #656549 ScoreBoards Tea Cup 3D.

Hope the girls enjoy them!

Here's a few challenges I'd like to enter:
City Crafter Challenge - Hold It (make or decorate a container)
Craft-room Challenge - Afternoon Tea (photo inspiration)
LEJ Designs #79 - Seasons Greetings
All Crafts Challenge - Anything But A Card
Make My Monday - Anything But A Card - Christmas Style
Scribble & Scrap - Anything Goes

Well, I'd better get ready for the party!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you're inspired by my creation!
As always ...
