Heart MMTPT131 ~ Cherries for Shari


This is a picture of my neice, Shari. Shari was diagnosed a week or so before Christmas with breast cancer. She has had two surgeries and will begin Chemo treatments for 20 weeks next Wednesday, March 2nd and then follow up with radiation.

2. I took advantage of all of the wonderful and generous stampers that participate in my Teapot Tuesday weekly challenge and made Shari the recipient of cards for one of our Teapot Tuesday Challenges. Here is a link to the challenge and story, Cherries for Shari.

3. Shari came over yesterday afternoon and we laid all of her cards (all 70 of them) out on my kitchen table and I took of this picture! Honestly, from the bottom of my heart, Pat (Foxy67) and I cannot thank those that participated enough! Yesterday, watching Shari tell me about how many she got, how many from Canada, how many from Ireland, how many from New Zealand, the most she got in one day, what the mail man must have thought, what came inside what card, what teapotters told her about their own breast cancer fight, which teapotters told her they had met me in person, what this card was made with, what her hubby thought of that get the picture...on and on and on! Snort! She carries them around in the cherry box I made her being oh so careful not to damage a single one! Yes, they do fit but barely!!! Giggle!

4. She has taken all 70 of them to work and all the people in her office including a bunch of College students at Colorado State University oohed and aahed over them, she has taken them to her monthly stamp class and all her fellow stampers oohed and aahed over them, and she just sat at my kitchen table and said, I don't wanna put em back in the box!!! OMG! She loves them and is so grateful and thankful and touched!

5. Again, thank you so much, all of you who participated and sent wonderful Cherry themed cards to my neice! Seeing first hand how she was encouraged by your cards was the most wonderful thing. I personally had a wonderful time looking at all of them up close and personal! This Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thing would not work so well if it weren't for the willingness of my fellow stampers to put their cards in the mail!
