Tea! My favorite! Today Sabrina has us commemorating the Tea Act of 1773 that led to the Boston Tea Party. I currently have a tea bag drying so I can make another card because like I said--tea is my favorite. I put the cup together and then got a little stumped about how to decorate it. I printed out the sentiment using the "Better Together" free font from fontspace.com. Then I remembered that I have a bunch of stickers that I never ever use and might have something fun. So here is my teacup that I actually decorated with stickers--so not my thing, but I love how it came out.
This is another fun 3-D project that I will put in a basket for the raffle to raise money for my friend who is now in her 9th week in the ICU--literally fighting for her life. Sadly, they still can't get the infection under control and while they've already amputated both legs to the knee, they fear they may have to take even more. She's also losing her sight. I'm devastated that she is going through this and pray every day for her healing. I feel so helpless, so I spend all my free time feverishly making baskets of cards for any fundraiser that is held for her.

Oh my goodness - first of all, I am so sorry to read about your friend and what she is going through. How terrible for her, and all her friends. I'm glad you have something practical to do to occupy your mind and hands, as well as praying.
And, what a fabulous project for the challenge. That tea-cup die is great, I love that it has a saucer. Thanks for listing the font, because that sentiment looks so great.
