Teapot Tuesday .... a little late ....

Teapot Tuesdays is a challenge that occurs over at SCS every (yeah, you guessed it ....) Tuesday. This card was made for that challenge (last week's) - as well as for a couple of other challenges. I had a great time making it ..... and I'm so glad to be able to honor a very special friend of mine with it.

Here's the challenge, so you can learn all about it and about the wonderful lady this card honors.

I met Sonja online (SCS) back in 2005 when the "Quackers" first began quacking. :) In 2006, we met in real life for the first time. We've seen each other just about every year since then. She lives quite a ways from me, so seeing her once a year is a big deal. Sonja is a wonderful, sweet, loving person, and I am so honored to call her my friend ... and even more honored that she considers me her friend. :)

Sonja's 2011 was a very rough one, and I'm hoping that her 2012 is going to be an amazing year for her and her family.

Sonja loves angels, teal, and hearts. I also know that she loves our Lord, and I wanted to add some verses just for her.

The background is embossed with snowflakes because I needed to add my own special touch. Sonja knows just how much I love snow.

I hope that all of the cards sent to Sonja help her to know just how special she is and what a wonderful friend she is.
