The Teapotters' Traveling Teaparty is off to Loveland, Colorado today. We are sending hugs and get well wishes to Shari......the niece of our very own Teapot General,,Mothermark. Shari has some health issues she's facing and we don't want her to be alone in it. Mothermark has woven a tale today of cherry fairies........well MY cherry fairy has decided to change my stamped cherry image into silver cherries for Shari's ears !!! I simply ADORE Mary Engelbreit and these little ear bobs are one of her creations. Last summer I ran across these earrings in a great little shop in Westerville...just north of Columbus, OH. They had just 2 pair and I bought both of them. I had no idea what I would do with 2 identical pair of earrings but I knew something would come to me. My mantra is....if 1 is good.........then a dozen MUST be better ..ha So they went into my gift drawer waiting for an opportunity to be given. There is no stamping or ink on this card. Just layers of paper and I popped the earring card on dimensionals. I love it ! Makes my heart happy...especially on this very ICY day. This card will go out today IF the mail runs......central Ohio had an ice storm last night. I don't think it's over yet....anyhooooo.........
Our best wishes and prayers go to Shari for a speedy recovery.

Tina, as a fan of Mary, your card screamed out to me! And then I see these wonderfully fun earrings. Now, who woulda thought of making a card with them. You are purely inspirational, and I love your mantra too! Hope you have some nice, warm cherry pie to help you thaw out. Bless your heart- this is fabulous!

I like the way you think! What a perfect pair of earrings to have in your gift stash, and the card you created with them is the sweetest ever! Shari will really be touched by your thoughtfulness. Love the gingham checks with the Mary Engelbreit image!

Tina, bless yer cherry-pickin, pit-spittin' heart, my friend! I sees the good Lord done led ya to buy that thar extra pair of darlin' cherry earrings to be a blessin' to someone else one day, and that day is done here. You wuz so clever to incorporate (that's a big word I done learnt today) them into yer purty card, too. I luvs me Mary E designs, and I luvs me that thar gingham dp and sentiment.
Now, come on over to the cherry tree where the cherry juice is flowin' freely and I wants to see how far you can spit a pit!
