Love the sentiment on top and the shells really make it so...
A real relaxing card that.
You are a great crafter, Charlene, and am glad to be your follower.

Teapot Tuesday - Dodge Balls and Buttons

Sometimes life throws us curve balls and sometimes, big ole' Dodge balls.  That's the case with this week's Teapot Tuesday Destination - MMTPT151.  Sandy Vadas is a friend of a friend.  I've never met this brave lady but she's already had to face more in a few years than most of us will in our entire lives. 

Here's a bit of Sandy's story as told by her friend, and mine, Susan:

Sandy Vadas is a nurse and works in the Cath Lab. She was married in April of 1991 and in Dec.1991 her husband was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s. They were told they would be unable to have children but Sandy had 2 boys . Between 1992 and 2007, Sandy’s husband had been in and out of remission a number of times, became blind, had a stem cell transplant, had 2 heart attacks and 10 stents. In 2007 he passed away leaving Sandy and the 2 boys.

Sandy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, had a bilateral mastectomy and went into remission 06/09 until now. The cancer returned this year in February and she is now receiving Chemo every week. She continues to work full time and loves helping people no matter what the issue! Every year since her husband’s death she has had a fundraiser called Dodge for the Cure. This is a Dodge Ball tournament to help raise money for the Oncology floor at the hospital because she wants to give back to the community.

The challenge this week is to make round cards for Sandy in honor of her fundraiser dodge ball tournament. 

based on this teapot

I love the clean shiny white base of this pot and the bright colored buttons so I used SU Glossy white CS for the circle base card, then put the scallop behind the base.  I've got a few buttons to straighten, I see!
