Pansies in a Cup - MMTPT232

Good morning my friends.  I worked on this card last week, but with all the issues going on at my house, I wasn't able to finish it up until this weekend.  So even though it's a week late, here it is.  This is for Teapot Tuesday on Splitcoaststampers and the first I've been able to do for some time now.  I love flowers and especially purple ones, so this was easy to do.

If you don't know, Teapot Tuesday is a weekly challenge where you make a card for a specific person for a specific reason - either they are ill, someone has passed on, or they just need some extra special attention.  This week our destination is San Antonio, Texas. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Sherry? Sherry was brought to our attention by fellow SCSer and faithful Teapotter, Phyllis ( SparklePlenty 1000 ). Sherry is the life-long friend of Phyllis and is struggling with the loss of her husband last year in a tragic accident and limitations of her own from injuries she sustained herself.
For the address to mail your cards to as well as some more information about Sherry's circumstances, please visit Post #331 in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!

The theme was to use flowers and an uplifting sentiment.  Here's the card that I created for Sherry.
I know that I got this image off my computer, but now for the life of me, I cannot find it and didn't write down where it came from.  I'll have to do a better search and will update that information when I find it.  If you recognize it, let me know.

  • Image - Pansies in a Cup - Fred She Said
