My take on this MMTPT215. Even with my migraines I just had to make a card.
This week, our cards are going to Ms. Eula who is celebrating her 110th birthday and all 42,000 teapotters are going to celebrate it with her. As an "extra challenge" within the challenge, we were to be inspired by our most memorable birthday, create a card, and write a note to Eula about it. Well, I chose to be inspired by the last birthday my mom celebrated with us before her passing from breast cancer. The story I wrote to Eula behind my card is on my blog if you wish to read it here: http://stampinginthelight.blogspot.c...y-ms-eula.html
All stamps are by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company, card stock by Stampin Up! and designer paper by Die Cuts With A View Sweet Shoppe.

Bonnie - just read the story on your blog and needed some kleenex - how sweet a treat that was for your Mom to be able to spend time with her brothers like that - tiime she cherished for the rest of her life here! the Casa de Fruita sounds like a great place, where you derived your inspiration for Eula's card - I know she will love your story!!
PS - how is your son Johnny doing??
