I'M LATE! I'M LATE! FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE!!
 
I'M LATE, I'M LATE!
FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE!

I'M LATE, I'M LATE!
I'M LATE, I'M LATE, I'M LATE!!!


(For a very important date!)



This is my story!

I created this thread for three very important reasons!

1. Our lives are busy! We can't always come to the teaparties on time! Sometimes I think teaparties are made to be late to! Hey, that was the White Rabbit's gig! There is no such thing as being late to a Teapot Tuesday Teaparty since as you all know we tea-party 24/7 but there is such a thing has being too late to get your card seen by fellow teapotters!

2. We all know how busy us Splitcoasters can be.....once you get one challenge accomplished, its off to the next and no way is there time to come back to check out the gallery a few days later to view the late additions to a challenge gallery! Here is the scenario....

a) View the challenge!
b) Spend 42,000 hours putting the idea in your head into a paper version!
c) Comment, comment, comment.....gotta comment on all my friends amazing cards!
d) All done.....Whew, a little feeling of accomplishment and relief until......
e) Oh no! The next challenge is posted! Here we go again!

3. Well, leave it to me, to make it easier on myself! Snort! I figure if I start a thread here and ask everyone to come here when they are late to the teaparty and post a link to their card, then I can subscribe to the thread, get an email when someone has posted, click on the link, see their wonderful addition to the challege and leave a comment! No matter if its a week late or a month late! Whoo hoo!

So, if you are late, come here and leave your link! And feel free to subscribe to this thread if you don't wanna have anything get by you! Snort!

What is the definition of being late? How about if you are posting your card on Thursday and beyond, you are late and should post a link here. Late in the day on Tuesday or all day Wednesday, I don't think is that late, I think that is still on time!! Do you agree?

Thanks for making things easier for me! Always an ulterior motive, huh!

Broom 02-02-2011 07:08 AM

Excellent idea Cindy! A head's up on additions to the gallery would be wonderful, because (to quote Aerosmith), I don't want to miss a thing!

StampingQueenJAR 02-02-2011 08:30 AM

This is a great idea. I have been swamped with work the last 3 weeks and haven't done my teapot cards because they would be late and no one would see them. I love this idea!

LilLuvsStampin 02-02-2011 08:40 AM

Oh, Mudder, you are always thinking, and this is one of your best ideas yet!

jaydekay 02-02-2011 08:55 AM

this is a fantastic idea.. you hit it right on Cindy. We want to keep checking back, but never get there! your always thinking 24-7 gf! woo hoo!!!!!!

Isaiah40:31 02-02-2011 08:58 AM

Well, for a person who is chronically late for challenges, I can only say "Great idea Mudder"! I haven't actually made it to many tea parties with a completed card but I'm a true blue lurker at the parties! :)

crazykim 02-02-2011 11:59 AM

two brain farts in one day -- wow you much be soooo tired now. Make sure you have something to drink to keep you hydrated we dont want you to pass out. Awesome ida again -- I don't think you ever stop. Tee hee hee

Mutnik 02-02-2011 12:32 PM

Again, way cool idea! Now I don't have to worry if I'm going to be late. Luv this. :0)

Barbarar20 02-02-2011 01:36 PM

This sounds like a great idea to me! I'm all for makin' life easier. :-)

kokirose 02-02-2011 04:31 PM

Cindy, this is a wonderful idea (brain fart???) ... I don't like missing the teaparty challenge cards...
Hugs..

hskelly 02-02-2011 08:04 PM

Oh thanks for a great idea Cindy!! I haven't been able to make a card on time lately and trying to comment on a whole gallery at one time takes forever!

Auntie Susan 02-03-2011 02:43 AM

Super fantastic idea. This takes the pressure off when we're having one of those really hectic weeks.

Connie Jo9 02-03-2011 06:01 PM

Amazing Cards!
 
Not sure where to post this but I just had to share with you awesome ladies!

Shari (Cherries for Shari) came to stamp club last night with a box crammed full of all the wonderful cards you all have sent her! She was absolutely overwhelmed and delighted with all of them. She was so very excited to share all of them with us. We spent so much time "oooing and aahing" over them.

Shari's delight and her amazingly positive attitude brought tears to my eyes.

Thank you for using your talents to bring so many bright spots to Shari's days!!

Hi Pam! Good to see you here! Thanks so much for your nice message! I knew Shari was taking her cards to Stamp Class and I am so tickled to hear your message....She has been very happy to receive so many awesome cards! I am not sure how many of the teapotters will see your message here so I will be sure to email it to them so they know they made a difference with the cards! So nice of you to mention it here!

Hugs.

Connie Jo9 03-05-2011 06:37 PM

A new definition for late was just put into the dictionary.....Connie Jo9. I am slowly catching up. I finally did the card for Sean. Very simple. Looked and looked until I could not look anymore and still remember what I was looking for so I did a coloring book page of a kite with a mouse holding on for dear life. I would have the very same look on my face if I was flying without a way for a safe landing. I mailed it to him a couple of days ago but guess what....I am late posting it!! I am pitiful!!! Thank you for looking here MMTPT132 A Kite for Sean by Connie Jo9 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Mothermark 03-06-2011 05:27 AM

Hey all you late gaters....no worries...its fun for the recipients to get cards after the *blast*!

Connie Jo9 03-09-2011 05:30 PM

I caught up with another Teapot Party number 135. I made this card for my Send Love Today little guy but I have another ready to go to Bobby as soon as I know what color to color the jersey. What football team do they have in New Mexico....of course....ask google!!! Here is my card. Thank you for looking.
