T for Tea and Bright New Year Wishes

Hello, and Happy New Year! I’m sharing my Yuletide tea with you and the T gang at the Altered Book Lover today. Not too fruity or sweet, I enjoyed the blend and the scent. I used my new rabbit in a hat tea diffuser which is both cute and functional.

I also wanted to share a card I made for a friend that I haven’t seen in a few years. She surprised me with a nice Christmas card and wrote me an encouraging message. Since the holiday is over but the season lives on, I stamped the sentiment “May your Season be Peaceful your New Year be Bright”. The winter scene was recycled from a calendar page, so I’ll be entering this in Craftyhazelnuts challenge this week. I embossed the card front with snowflakes and added a diecut snowflake and ribbon to complete my greeting.

Now, to start taking down the Christmas decorations…sigh. Blessings on you day!

  1. Tea infusers can be so cute! I’ve seen lots of variations on the theme. Have a great year in 2021 — better than 2020!

  2. I always love your cards and recycling your old calendar is perfect. You are so good at recycling and I love that.

    I love the ingredients in your tea, Karen. These make such a great combination. It took me a minute to figure out the hat part of the infuser. It is adorable. Thanks so much for sharing this tea, the infuser, and your precious card with us for T this Tuesday, dear.


  3. I love that rabbit tea diffuser. It is very cute. And that tea sounds great. Perfect for holiday celebrating. Hope it was a great T day. Hugs-Erika


  4. Oh what a gorgeous scene! I see you recycled a calendar (love how into recycling you are!) but if you want to recreate something similar, The Greetery have their Christmas Eve stamp set that would work! The tea looks great and i can imagine how lovely it smells. How fun your tea infuser is too! Vicky x

  5. Your rabbit in a hat tea diffuser is darling. Thanks for showing how it works because I couldn’t figure it out. Very clever.

    Love your card and the very appropriate message.

    Wishing you the best in 2021 and a Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
