Teapot Tuesday, Feel Better!

This week's Teapot Tuesday is taken from a quilted inspiration of a teapot with calicoes and gingham in pinks, greens, and blues.

The "soft side" of the challenge was to make a card for a local (to me) woman of 22 years who has just recently been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing chemo treatments. My heart goes out to her, and this will be sent to help her feel the love and encouragement knowing others are praying for her.

I am making one just like this only in blues for our daughter who is going to have surgery in two days for skin cancer which was just recently diagnosed as melanoma. While melanoma or any cancer is frightening in terminology, we are encouraged that it is in the early stages, and normally responds favorably to removal. Although no surgery is fun at all...so I am nervous for her. It's a mama thing. I am so grateful that I can send cards to others who are going through trials even more difficult than ours...it really does help ease a burden to reach out to someone else.

Thanks for stopping in...

I used impression obsession stamps for this and some beautiful paper that I'd like to wrap myself up in from a good friend...made by Melissa Frances, and some polar white flower soft applied with Allene's quick grab glue for the shawl collar, cuffs, and pockets. Don't you wish you had some bunny slippers just like these?


  1. Hey, I thought you did have bunny slippers, Trace! :-) This is so cute! I absolutely love the polar fleece you used on the robe and that sweet ribbon. Lindsay will love your pretty card.

    You all will be in my thoughts and prayers during your daughter's surgery. Hugs, sweet friend.

  2. This is wonderful.. I LOVE this stamp.. It is so pretty. Makes me want to just cuddle up and read. She is going to love this.. I just read Cindy's story over on SCS. I will send a card too..

    I will be saying a prayer for your family too. .That is scary no matter what. I hope she does well.. I know with you as her momma she has lots of support and love...Huge hugs..
