A Mother's Day Teapot

Coffee of the Day - Maple Nut

I haven't been doing much crafting, but really needed to get a Mother's Day card made & mailed for my MIL. lots of dr's appts, tests, scans, and such on the horizon. some stuff has been discovered that was not in the least bit expected, but so very thankful it was found. just adds a bit more 'fun' to this journey. I will pop in as I can..... know you are in my thoughts and heart, even if I'm not on here.

floral teapot image is from Bugaboo, papers are from the Basic Grey Highline collection, starburst die is from Taylored Expressions, banner & scallop dies are by Spellbinders, tiny leaf flourish die is Cheery Lynn, and flower is Prima. sentiment was typed out on my compy. I used my spica clear glitter pen to add highlights to the main image.
