Clean and Simple Teapot Tuesday

Two cards today...first up is the SplitCoastStampers CAS212 challenge.  This week is a Pinterest Inspiration Challenge based on this beautiful cake:

I pulled out a scrap of watercolor paper and my much neglected watercolor pencils to create this CAS card:
I have a dear friend who has cancer and I've made a personal commitment to send her a card every week to remind her how precious her life has been to me.  Sometimes they're funny and sometimes like this one, a bit more reflective and elegant...just like she is.

Next is the Teapot Tuesday Challenge MMTPT242.  This week our cards are going to Bill Dewhurst.  Bill has leukemia and is in 100 days of isolation following his treatment.  We're sending Bill some of his favorite things to cheer him up while he's there.

I love this shiny cloud paper!  My hot air balloons are swaying in the breeze.  After having flown in one, I can tell you they do not fly straight up!  I popped them up on a bit of foam tape.  I was wishing I had thought to dig out one of my Wobblers for the big balloon...hmmm...maybe I can still do that.  It would be a fun element for Bill, don't you think?
If you'd like to send Bill a card, here are the details:

Scripture is ok...he thanks God everyday. His favorite colors are black & orange. He loves hot air balloons, anything to do with flying & loves computers, electronics etc. and Eeyore:

Hi. Just want to know who Bill is? You mentioned your friend (who is a woman, I think) and then mentioned Bill. Info would help if I want to send a card. Thanks.
LOVE your cards!

Both cards are so wonderful and so different. Love the drama of the first. Black and white and red look awesome ALWAYS. The second card is perfect for Bill. The clouds are so real.
BLess your heart for being so kind,
