Teapot Tuesday - Spiders and Bats and Ghosts....Oh, MY!!

I have two posts today so be sure to check them out 'cause...It's May Arts/Hero Arts Blog week!  Woo-Hoo!!

Our Teapot Tuesday Challenge (MMTPT115) this week  Destination Station this week is Birchwood, Wisconsin. 

We are sending our cards to Jacob, the 5 year old grandson of Renee, a fellow SCSer/Teapotter (handmadebyme). Jacob recently had tonsil surgery and the doctors found a cancerous growth on the tonsil. As his plans for treatment progressed unfortunately they discovered his cancer was more advanced than originally thought and had spread to both his kidneys and liver. Doesn't seem quite right for a 5 year old!


We are bringing a Halloween Party to Jacob!  Renee says he loves scarey stuff! Since he might not have the energy to do any trick or treating this year, we'll brighten his holiday with a skeery teaparty!

Here's the inspiration teapot chosen by Cindy (mothermark).

Here's my card for Jacob:


I used the Round Card Template from The Cutting Cafe.  The base is actually SU Night of Navy but swiped my white craft inkpad across it.  The stamps are Michael's $1 spot (spider/web, pumpkin).  Those super cute bats and ghosties are from May Arts Satin Cutouts line of ribbon.  Aren't they the cutest?  I used CE on the pumpkin and the spider and Sakura glitter pen on the web.  I also used the most awesome w Glue Arts Glue adhesive squares....love them!!! 

If you can send a card to cheer up this precious 5 year old, I know it will help ease the stress he and his family find themselves faced with.  You can find all Jacob's information here.

Supplies:
Paper - SU Night of Navy
Ink - SU Craft White, Eggplant Envy, Pumpkin Pie, Copic markers
Stamps - Michael's $1, PTI Spooky Sweets (boo)
Accessories - May Arts Satin Cutouts, Crystal Effects
                                                 
Pin It!
