Candy Cane Tea

 Howdy Crafters - It's that time again for Candy Cane Green Tea! Yum! I first was introduced to this delicious tea at Traders Joe's in 2015. I only purchased one box back then and when we returned to shop again [Traders Joe's is 1/2 hour drive for us] they were sold out - we were then informed TJ only carry this tea during the Holiday season - well I fooled them and purchased 5 boxes last week.... he he he...- anywhoo - as you can see from this photo

 there is a nice Polar Bear scene on the package.... please look below to view my card creation. - thanks for stopping by and hope you have a nice refreshing cup or two of hot tea! Enjoy! ~ Gail~

  1. Love the jolly little polar bear, and you have given me a craving for peppermint tea. Glad you found a good supply of it! Thanks for playing along at Jo's this week.

  2. What an awesome up-cycle Gail, well done! The polar bear is super cute and very appropriate for a winter or Christmas themed project. I love that you included all the water and icebergs as well.
    I regularly drink green tea but have never tried it with peppermint Gail, I know they sell it at the store but haven't been brave enough to give it a go... looks like it's time to try something new!

  3. So cute!! Love the polar bear - you're coloring is really good. The inside is beautiful too. What a nice surprise to open up to!!

  4. Oh that Polar bear is absolutely adorable! I can see why you would want to use him on a card! Looks great! Thanks for playing along with us at DL.ART Challenges!

  5. Like the recycling of using the tes box Polar Bear for card. I've enjoyed seeing & photographing Polar Bears at Zoos.

  10. Hi Gail! I just love using recycled products and this bear is just so cute I wouldn't throw him out either. I just picked up some candy cane hot cocoa mix that I'm anxious to try. Time to stock up on it. Thanks so much for joining my Christmas Critters blog challenge :)
