This week's Tea Party destination station is right next door to me so I didn't have to travel far. Yes, I am soooo lucky that I get to live right next door to my parents! Funny how that happened, but I will have to save that for another time.
Mom is going through cancer treatments right now and has had a very rough year. The Tea Party Crew jumped right in to cheer her up, lift her up in prayer, and cover her in paper hugz!
I brought chocolates to the party. Aren't these the coolest looking cherry cordials? Maria Shega is such a wonderful artist!
This is also for the Squigglefly Pink and Black challenge which still goes on through this weekend if you want to join it. Here is the link:

Oh Nancy it was our pleasure to shower your Mom with some paper love. I sure would like to be a fly on the wall as the cards start showing up in her mailbox!!! We love you so much, how could we not love your Mom. This card is so pretty. I love the doily in the background and the image. The little bling at the top is perfect.

Nancy, your Mom and Dad will love this card. It is so unique as are you - in a good way of course! I'm trying to get a card done for them. It might not be there for Valentine's Day week; but, who says LOVE can't be celebrated all year! Keeping everyone in my prayers Nancy!!!!

I love this!! I love this great image and the way that you served it on a doily. I love that you, your mom and Leavie have such a special relationship. I love that you can be there for them. I love that you let us help a little with our cards. I love your sense of gratitude. I love the thought of getting to meet you someday...I look forward to that. Big ol' hugz from NJ, my friend...and give one to your mom for me too!

Marzi, Punchkateer Apprentice - why use 1 when you can use 2? or 8?

YUM! It has been a while since I had one of these - and your bg looks like one of the frilly Valentine boxes. I hope the flurry of mail - with our hugs and prayers - has provided a lift that will last.

This is so sweet Nancy. I love your card - what a beautiful thing that your Mom will be receiving so much love from everyone who plays along in the Teapot challenge. She will be lifted with joy no doubt!
