Pillow Box of Tea

Hello, everybody! Welcome to Day 5 of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! The hop runs through December 18 and anyone can join!  We are focusing on winter/holiday projects with images of coffee, tea, or cocoa. It's a blog hop so commenting is encouraged and much appreciated!


Before I get started, I would like to wish everyone a Happy International Tea Day! Cocoa had its day and now it's tea's turn!


Today I am sharing a little pillow box full of tea! Thank you to my sweet friend Alice P for sending me the pillow box die-cuts - I am finally using one!  I embossed it with Cuttlebug Snowflakes.  The adorable kitty image is from By Miss Rach called Christmas Cocoa Cat and is available as a freebie! She has some other adorable freebies there as well so head over and check them out!


I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and added a hand-drawn snowflake on the cup using my white gel pen. I die-cut the Stampendous Snowflake in silver glitter cardstock and added some Baker's twine from DL.ART.  I stamped the Whimsy Stamps sentiment in red and die-cut into a stitched tag (La-La Land).


Inside the pillow box is 3 packages of my favourite Chocolatey Chai herbal tea! 


And of course I have to share the daily goings-on of my elf Eli. In keeping with the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and International Tea Day, Eli decided to check out another of my snowman mugs. He's whispering to me that it's empty! Time for a refill of that yummy Chocolatey Chai herbal tea!  Eli is linking up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky! If you have a little elf, you will want to join Eli, Arci, Ron, Daisy, Elizabeth, Loopy, Elfin, and Hope in their funny elf antics!

  14. Eli, I've not heard of a chocolate chai tea. My daughter likes chai teas: David Rio Tiger Spice & David Rio Elephant Vanilla. World Mkt sells the first one in stores but the other is only available online at least that is the case here in Central TX. I ordered some of the Elephant Vanilla for my daughter for her birthday which is after Christmas, 12/27.

  42. Hi Kitty,

    Firstly wishing you a very happy belated 2016, I hope this year is a really good year for you. Sorry that I haven't been around since December, life got crazy and because I was so disorganized I needed to take a break and take time to catch up on everything, all has finally calmed down and I am looking forward to 2016. I just wanted to thank you for sharing this amazing project at Anything goes December link-up, Just keep on creating. You are one of the featured artists and also the link-up has just been posted for February, I look forward to seeing lots of your beautiful creations xx
