This is the card I made for this week's Teapot Tuesday Challenge.
This is my story:
1. This week, my Aunt Martha is featured to be the recipient of the challenge cards. She lost her husband unexpectantly and suddenly just after Thanksgiving while out of town with a couple of friends. Massive heart attack and he was gone.
2. I think Aunt Martha will be so touched to receive some TEapotter Love....thank you all!

Cindy, your card has such a warmth and charm. Love the DPs you used with their "homey" quality. With your machine-stitching and assorted flowers it furthers that feeling. Your aunt will LOVE it....not only for it...but because it is from YOU.
