This week the Tepotters are headed to Philadelphia, Pa, to celebrate the 110th birthday of Eula! What a shindig it's gonna be, the Mayor will be there and so will the Teapotters and about 500 more , to help Eula celebrate the wonderful adventures of 110 years.
This is our 3rd year in celebrating the birthdays of Eula, and what an honor it is. To mark this occasion, we're to include a note telling Eula of our favorite birthday. To be quite honest, I don't have a favorite, but I do love that my birthday is the first full day of autumn. It's my favorite season of the year. The bounty of the harvest, the cooler temperatures (for us a late summer), Halloween and Thanksgiving, and the wonderful colors of nature bless us this time of year.
This card has the wonderful colors of autumn for Miss Eula.
The only time I was in Philadelphia, was 1978 when I was going into the USCG.
Miss Eula, Happy 110th Birthday!

Eula is going to get a wonderful kick out of this beauty from you, Jennifer! The marbling in the oval and the sentiment are dreamy and your needle work is to be treasured. We must not neglect the flower and the fabric leaves... how marvelous!

Jennifer this is just beautiful. I really like the effect you achieved with the shaving cream. The sewing with the floss is so unique and then the pretty leaves and flowers. You have made a wonderful card for Eula. She will love this. I do!
