I made this card using today's SKETCH CHALLENGE, yesterdays COLOR CHALLENGE & TEAPOT CHALLENGE.

This card is for my dear friend Katie Renz, who is the DT Leader at Clear Dollar Stamps. She was recently diagonsed with Stage 4 Stomach Cancer and is undergoing Chemotherapy.

The Tuesday Teapot Challenge Destination Station was to send our cards to Katie. You can also follow Katie on her blog MY PAPERHAVEN as she keeps us posted on her progress.

I have been missing in action lately as I pulled a muscle in my neck quite severely. Today is the first day since Sunday that I can actually move around a little bit without my neck going into spasms....what total agony. I could not miss the opportunity to honor my dear friend Katie I slowly (very slowly) was able to make a card for the challenge.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: SU Nature Walk
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Versamark
Accessories: Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Word Window & Modern Label Punches, SU Gold Elastic Cord, Gold Embossing Powder, Blender Pen, Sponge, Dimensionals

Hope you are having a great day.
