Teapot Tuesday - and a Sneak Peek!

This week our cards are going to Brenda in PA. She and her son were on their way to the grocery store when they were struck head on by another car. Her son was not hurt but Brenda didn’t fair as well. For awhile, they did not believe she would survive. But her faith and determination are pulling her through. It will be some time before she’s able to go home. We all know how depressing hospital rooms can be so we’re out to fill her room with flowers and butterflies – two of Brenda’s favorite things.

My card for Brenda actually gives you a sneak peak at Thursday’s technique… you know, the one you were supposed to get last week LOL. Though I did just notice I"ll need to change the sentiment LOL Why was I thinking Birthday! Oh well, easy fix before it gets mailed.

I won’t go into details about the design so I don’t give anything away. I did choose to stick with a blue/ white/ yellow theme. I mounted the image on SU Bashful Blue. I added a strip of yellow grosgrain ribbon and 3 daisies from a daisy ribbon trim.  The yellow seemed like the perfect choice to let the sentiment stand out so I stamped SU Vintage Labels on white, with Daffodil Delight and matted it with Daffodil Delight CS. The butterfly is from the Studio 112 line by Spotted Canary.

So have you figured out the mat yet? Hehe  See you tomorrow with something cool to do with Nestle Quick containers.

Creative Blessings!
