If Friends Were Flowers – Teapot Tuesday #668

It’s Teapot Tuesday  and today’s Tea Party is for Jeanne in California. Jeanne is 85 years old and has been an avid stamper for many years. Sadly, her eyesight has deteriorated to the point where she can no longer see well enough to make cards. Because of this, she has begun to give away her extensive collection of stamps. We can sympathize and we are going to shower Jeanne with cards. Given that her eyesight is so poor, it’s suggested we incorporate dimension, textures and bright colors. Jeanne likes flowers, cats, traveling and reading.  I went straight for my Cottage Cutz Garden Cat with Wagon. I think a die cut critter gives nice dimension. I also popped up the scalloped panel. To make the card more touchable I finally used my Fun Flock. And I love it. I need it in every color. I put it on the cat and the hedgehog. I also added some Stickles to the flower centers and Enamel Accents for their faces.

Today is also Color Challenge day.  My substitutions are Seedless Preserves for Rich Razzleberry, Shabby Shutters for Pear Pizazz, and Shaded Lilac for Highland Heather.  Karen challenge us to use flowers for dessert and I’ve got those too!  That card was exhausting to make. So many fiddly bits. And I still have my second one waiting to be assembled!  But now I’m off to buy more Fun Flock.  I wish you could feel it through the computer screen:

Do you know someone that could use some well wishes, encouragement or all around warm fuzzies? Consider nominating them as a guest of honor (a.k.a. destination station) for an upcoming tea party. Send your request to jacqueline via PM or e-mail [email protected]. Include SCS Teaparty Request in the subject line.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
