The Teapotter's Yell "FORE"

Teapot Tuesdays is a fun, more than fun, a hilarious spoof on different subjects. Cindy is the mother off all teapot subjects and this week is no different. Actually the teapot that I am working on is for next Tuesday-----SHHHH---don't tell...some of us get a head start and I grabbed it today because it goes so well with the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 123.
My golfer friend is none other than Freddy from Daisy Doodles.
The sentiments are clear stickers that I found in the BOTD.
I used my air inker/mister to spray Bashful Blue on the sky and Mellow Moss and Wild Wasabi
on the grass. I colored a second shirt and pants for Freddy to pop up(to cover my 'spraying').

Each week Cindy finds a destination for the 'teapotters' to send their cards.
This week's destination is Harrisville, Pennsylvania. How about sending it to Nathan, the friend of  Stephanie, a fellow SCSer (steffers).  Nathan (goes by Manny) is only 31 years old and was recently diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia.  He is currently  undergoing chemo and bone marrow tests. 
Nathan is a new dad.  When he took Oliver,  his 4 month old son for his check-up, he was asked by the pediatrician if he (Nathan, the daddy) was feeling OK . The doctor thought that his coloring was off and suggested that Nathan go to his primary care physician to be checked for anemia. One thing led to another and within two weeks he was diagnosed.  The family is hoping that Nathan can return home soon.  He loves his little Oliver and misses him terribly.  He has been able to Skype with Oliver and that helped tremendously getting him through the long days in the hospital.  Stephanie is praying that Nathan will be able to hug that little guy very soon. The family feels very optimistic.  Nathan is young and strong (athlete type).  He golfs, bowls and played basketball in High School and College.  With prayers they will get through this.
Stephanie can't wait to see his mail box fill up!  And I should mention that she will, literally!  Stephanie is the Post Master in the small town where Nathan lives.  She will literally be the person filling up that mailbox!  How cool is that? 
This one is going in the mail tomorrow!
Thanks for coming by!

I read all the comments and will get back to you!!!
