Today I want to show you a really cool card that my Polish friend sent me for Christmas. (Christmas was a while ago, but it was a busy time, so I'm only getting around to showing these photos now.)
The card contains a plastic packet of real tea, taped into a teabag-shaped window! How adorable is that?
I can't read Polish, but my friend wrote me a note inside the card to let me know that this was black tea with cinnamon and apples. The little pieces of dried apple rehydrated when I steeped the tea. Not only did this tea taste wonderful, but it also smelled really good...like the aroma of a freshly baked apple pie.
If only I knew how to read tea leaves! I think these might mean that trying to design a handmade version of this teabag card is in my future. :)
As long as I'm sharing a Christmas card out of season, I might as well share another card out of season, too. :)

Here's a Thanksgiving card that I made. I made it quite some time ago, and it was published in the November 2013 issue of Scrap n' Art e-zine. I enjoyed combining floral patterns when I created this card.
Well, I'll let you know if I have any luck creating my own version of the tea bag card. In the meantime, I hope you're all well. I look forward to hopping around and visiting blogs today.
