Teapot Tuesday - The Amazing Miss Eula


Our Teapot Destination Staion this week is Philadelphia, PA, the home of Mrs. Eula Cousins.  Miss Eula will be celebrating her 108th (!!) birthday on Sept. 14th.

Miss Eula has lived a very adventurous and colorful life (you can read about her on the link) so our assignment was to make our cards bright and colorful.  Miss Eula loves travel, learning and used to have a large flower garden.  She also has a parrot that she loves.  I decided to bring her a flower and an as yet, unnamed bird to keep her parrot company.

Here's the Teapot Challenge if you'd like to play along and send Miss Eula a birthday greeting.  Challenge details are in the first post.

I used Sketch 295 as my inspiration.  I made the flower using an assortment of punches.

Paper - Bazzill Textured Shimmer, PTI, Berry Sorbet, K & Co. Handmade Lofty Nest
Stamps - Hero Arts
Ink - SU Chocolate Chip
Accessories - punches, Glimmer Mist

I added a little surprise to my blog candy today.  wink,wink!

Pin It!

Hello. My name is Steven Cousins. I am Eula Cousins' nephew, and I am with her celebrating her 108th birthday at Cathedral Village in Philadelphia. I am so happy that Eula's life and birthday was selected as a Teapot Destination Station. The cards that she has received are absolutely incredible. They are stunning... very creative and very beautiful. I have never before seen cards that are so magical and heart-felt. What a very, very touching way to celebrate such a momentous occasion.

I particularly liked your card... with the paper, the colors, and the expression. The warmth comes through. Thank you very much. Your sentiments, and loving way to express your creativity has made for an even better birthday celebration with Eula. Thanks!
