Tea & Tidings

This design is part of a collection called “Tea & Tidings,” a series of cards featuring tea imagery combined with desserts, small animals, and seasonal settings, sometimes in humorous juxtapositions or with puns: Gingerbirdhouse, Cornucupia, Teacupcake… Each design has a written piece on the back side that accompanies the artwork on the front. I hope your “cup runneth over” with comfort, joy, and love, but also bunnies, cupcakes, rainbows, butterflies and bird’s eggs, depending on the design!


I brewed a pot of tea today
and mailed a cup to you,
to make the miles melt away
and have our tea for two.

Despite the winter wind that blew,
the cup continued steaming,
the cake upon the plate remained,
yet wildlife were teeming!

Though difficult the delivery –
– no chips, no spills, no sips!
my thoughts of you brew magic tea
and it survived the trip.

I brewed a pot of tea today
and mailed a cup to you,
so we can share this moment of care
and have our tea for two.

Dedicated to Aunt Pat (1947 -2021)
who mailed the best valentines

Eco Clearbags Compostable Sleeves

If you bought one of our cards in a brick and mortar store, it came in a protective clear sleeve made of plant-based polylactic acid (PLA) and is certified compostable and food safe (Eco Clearbags). In Northwest Arkansas where Ripples Greeting Cards are designed, you can compost these “bio plastic” sleeves through Food Loops in Rogers or drop off the sleeves at Ozark Natural Foods Co-op in Fayetteville where they will be sent to Food Loops for composting. This may not be available in your area, but you might find a commercial composting facility near you.
