Sharing a Cup of Tea

At the start of every month, I have the pleasure
of sending out a postcard to somebody I haven't met,
sometimes from across the world.

In the same month, I find a postcard in my mail box, too!
It's always a pleasant surprise.

It's a commitment we've made as members of the

When we started out last September, I would send out
postcards from my collection that I bought from
different trips. But when I saw how some members
were being creative by making their own postcards,
I had to step up my game!

I wasn't being competitive.
It was a great excuse to do some blah to TADA!

Here's one of the postcards that I made:

Blah: a gift card envelope from Crate & Barrel.

Blah because it's now empty.
I've maxed out the gift card to get this!

Not wanting to waste the envelope, I gave it
a little make-over.

TADA! I spruced it up with felt & embroidery.

And I enclosed a few tea bags.

Then I wrote a cheerful note & mailed it.

I hope Becky from Canada enjoyed the tea!

    I don't know if it's intentional but, you don't have a public mail link to your blog so, I couldn't answer directly by gmail (your message came as 'non-reply').
