BFF's B-day

Hi, everyone. Hope your Saturday is going well. Unfortunately we're having to plan a funeral. My husband's older brother died yesterday. So this will be short and sweet.

My BFF, who happens to live across the street, has a birthday today.  She isn't going through a very nice time right now either. She and her husband are traveling to Louisiana each week to bring her aunt for cancer treatment. So we all seem to have something that isn't pleasant to take care of.

Thank you, Lord, for helping us through this. I know a lot of you are dealing with things that are less than pleasant and he helps you. too.

My friend collects teapots along with candlesticks, etc.

So here's her card:

This is a silhouette file. They always cut so nicely.  I bought a file from SVG Cuts, Tea for You and Me, just so I could make her the teapot. The only problem was I needed 3 sheets of matching patterned paper instead of just 2 because I have a Portrait and not a Cameo. 

Anyway, this particular pattern is the only thing I had with 3 sheets. So I made it anyway. I just don't like the paper. I'll have to make her another one later. (poor planning on my part) It was fun to make.

Here's picture of it:

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

  10. Stephanie,
    First off, I am so very sorry to hear about your brother-in-law's passing. I am keeping you, your husband and the family in my prayers. I'm sorry it has taken me awhile to get caught up to your blog posts too. I am just now starting to get through the gazillion of emails that were in my inbox over the Holidays and while I was sick. On a brighter note, your teapot is gorgeous and so is the card. I don't know why you don't like the paper. I think it's gorgeous paper and your friend will love it all. Thanks for sharing this with us and you are all in my thoughts.
