Thank You Card Using Bugaboo Flower Teapot for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends DT - Challenge 13 - Anything Goes 

Hi to everyone in Blogland.  I hope all of you are doing well.  It has been hot here in Southern CA; but I guess it could be worse.  We really do need rain.  I noticed several states had an abundance of rain.  It is too bad someone can’t send some of that rain to CA.  LOL! 

I am so excited to announce that I have been accepted on Lil Patch of Crafty Friends as one of their DT for the A Team.  This is my first creation as part of their awesome team!  I was also very excited to be able to start with one of my favorites – Bugaboo Digi stamps!  I love their digis and own many of them; but you can never have too many, right?  

I chose Bugaboo Flower Teapot for my card.  My sister, Becky, loves ladybugs; so I thought I would create her a Thank you card using this awesome digi.  She has been there for our mother and helped a lot; staying with her in the hospital and doing all she can; even though she lives 4 hrs away.  My mother is doing very well right now; and we hope she continues to improve.
