TeaSwap May 2012 - Part 1

This month Fran called the tea swap with the theme: Flowers and colors: red & green. Got paired up with Dori again, she was the swap partner I had when I entered Fran's tea swap for the first time last year... already having received a couple of cards made by Dori, I could not wait to see, what she came up with this time.

One of the best ways to start up a weekend after a long work week (exhausted) is to find a teawap in the mailbox - and once again Dori amazed me with her card creations :o)

Brilliant use of the die as a "closer" of the card and then the elegant red flower - like the texture, which my fingers had to touch over and over again to convince myself, that it is made of paper.

How often does a Dane get a chance to taste tea from Hawaii?! Pineapple waikiki (black tea) and lemon chamomile - well a few times now thanks to Fran's teaswaps and still thrilled on being able to "travel" around the world's teas through the swap.

Thanks Dori for being my swappartner this month.

WOW that's an amazing card. And the flower does look tactile.
Enjoy your tea.

That's pretty, and isn't the pineapple tea scrumptious!

Aw, what a sweet post. That card is lovely and you're right, what a terrific way to "taste" the world as it were.
