Open Call for Pocket Letter Swap and Tea Swap

Our monthly tea swap continues.  My partner for the August tea swap is Carol who lives in Arcadia, California.  
I love the card that Carol made for me.  The optional colors this month were teal, orange and white.  She heat embossed the ginkgo leaves in gold.  I am going to guess that the stamp she used is PTI Harvest Berries.  I may just have to invest in this stamp set.  It's just beautiful!
Along with the required tea bags, she sent gifts of silver cording and Christmas present stickers which I know will look just elegant on some holiday tags.

In exchange, I decided to pull out an old embossing stencil that I have never used by Lasting Impressions called Bear/Just for You and created a card with matching tea bag holder.

The tea holders opens into three partitions.  I included a Stamp by Kitty Bee Designs, Hawaiian Tea and a Hawaiian snack.

You and Carol did a fab job on the cards that you made for each other. The card that she made for you is very elegant and the card that you made for her is super cute. Both of you surprised each other with a nice RAK.

All the Pocket Letter Cards that everyone has been making look great.
