Ok, dear Teapotters!! I want to deliver on my promise to post Aunt Betty's THANK YOU! Here is her note to each and every one of you!!


To all the dear sweet Tea Potters –

To say that I was overwhelmed when all your delightful cards started flooding my mailbox is the understatement of the year! I got more and more excited each day to walk up the driveway to my mailbox to see if there were any surprises that day. Sue had warned me ahead of time that I would be receiving some homemade cards in the mail, but I never expected in my wildest dreams to see so much talent and such beautiful creations as the ones you all sent me.

From the farm animals, deer, owls, chickens, goats, bugs, flowers, and beautiful barns to the roosters, horses, sheep,cows, beautiful scenes, the Yorkie, and sweet country gals, your cards have been a wonderful part of each and every day, as I am constantly looking at them and being amazed by your talent and the kindness you all have shown me by filling my mailbox with such joy!

To each and everyone of you, I offer my heartfelt thanks and prayers, that God will reward you all for doing such a kind deed for someone you never even met!! I am most grateful and will never forget this wonderful “Teaparty” and all you lovely ‘Teapotters’.

God bless each of you !
Love and Hugs from
“Aunt” Betty


Hoping I can attach the pictures I took on Tuesday when I was to see her - crossing my fingers!!
Thanks for spreading the JOY!!

Thanks for the photo and note. What a lovely smile - please tell Aunt Betty she looks terrific - especially for 90! Maybe you can let us know her birthday and I am sure she will receive a couple of extra cards!

Well since you ASKED, Aunt Betty will be turning 91 on July 30th this year - her favorite place to eat is, believe it or not Cracker Barrel, so every year, I go and pick her up and bring her back down to the Cracker Barrel near me, and MOST times, I am able to round up a bunch of our stamping group to "surprise" her for our dinner!! This was last year for her 90th!!

I will try to remember to post Aunt Betty’s birthday on our Teapotters Birthday thread as a reminder. I think she is a teapotter, don’t you? I love the updates, Sue. Thank you.

Yes, I think she is a teaPotter at heart - she has been making cards longer than I have!! I know she would be thrilled if any of you have a chance to send her a card from your stash - it would really make her birthday special!!


THANK YOU, JEAN!!

Just passing on another thanks from Sue - she says Betty is still receiving a few cards from some of the Teapotters and is always thrilled to receive them. They - and you - are much appreciated. Anyone who'd like to s be a birthday card, it's the end of July...I think the 30th comes to mind but I'll check that.

Yes, July 30th.

Oh Sabrina - and all you wonderful teapotters!! I know it would be a surprise and a JOY for Betty to hear from any of you who care to send off a birthday card. She has enjoyed all of your cards and loves to read the notes you add inside!

Thanks for all you do, and blessings to each and every one of you!!
Hugs,
Sue

Attempting to bump up Aunt Betty for her coming 91st birthday in case you all were looking for her address.

Address is at the top of page 1 in the challenge I bumped, but it is probably a good idea to post it in the thread. Thanks, Donna Jean.

Thanks to all of you lovely, generous lady TeaPotters - from ALL OVER - who are going to send Aunt Betty a 91st Birthday card - I know she has gotten some random cards from a few of you since her tea Party - YES, I HEAR ABOUT IT RIGHT AWAY, LOL - but it would ease her loneliness, as she 'dances' back from her mailbox with birthday cards from all her new found teapotter friends! She loves not only your cards, but all the little notes you include, telling her about something in your life as well!!

Thanks from the bottom of my heart for all the joy you are bringing this sweet lady!

Oh Jean, thank you!! you are too sweet - I have been thinking of everyone else's birthdays this month - July is crazy for my family - that I haven't had time to add another year to my age this year! I am truly thinking about going backwards from here on through!!

Big Hugs to you for your kindness!!
Sue

To all the Teapotters who sent a birthday card to Aunt Betty, here is a portion of a message I received from Irishgreensue:

Also can you please pass on my thanks to any of the gals who mailed her a birthday card for her 91st - what a wonderful surprise for her - she feels so spoiled, and loves every single one of those cards!
