Default MMTPT#275~November 5,2013~Laissez les Bontemps Rouler!

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday

the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #275



Laissez les Bontemps Rouler!


Meet me at the Café du Monde for an order of beignets. They make them fresh there all day, everyday.


Mon Dieu! they only serve coffee not a drop of tea


we'll sneak in our own tea and hope they do not see.


Let's take a little walk around the block


notice all the flower boxes with trailing phlox?


Look all around and you will see


the emblem known as the fleur de lis.


It adorns, helmets, t shirts and hats


and when you see it shout, "Who dat!"



Anybody up for swamp tours?


don't be scared if the gator roars.


Be sure to keep your arms & legs in the boat


you don't want a limb to end up in its throat.



We're in the birthplace of Jazz


great music with lots of pizzazz


This is where McIlhenny's began


the best tasting Tabasco sauce


add it to your dish or in your pan


without it, chefs would be at a loss.


Your tastebuds will get a tangy, little zing


use too much and it's like a bee sting.



Don't worry, I've called ahead and ordered 42,000 beignets for our party


there'll be enough for us to eat rather heartily.



Our mission this week is to bring some cheer


to a woman who has had a rough year.






CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:

Bring words of cheer and things you would find in Louisiana. Pelicans, fleur de lis, beignets, gators, shrimp, crawfish, catfish, Tabasco sauce, Mardi Gras, musicians, flower boxes, wrought iron fences, magnolias, gumbo, etc.



EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA BEIGNETS (EPEB):


Bring a Mardi Gras theme.



If you bring strands of beads* we'll know what you did so come in the back door.


*flashing your boobs gets you strands of beads at Mardi Gras, or so I am told.


DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is the Big Easy.



If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Heidi brought to our attention by VixenStamper Here is a link to gallery.


Here's my card

For more information as well as the address to mail your card to please visit post 376 in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station Thread.




Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!


Here is a quick link to MMTPT challenge #275 gallery


Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT275 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!



Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? Join the Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and you will get an email of the challenge the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send a pm with your email address to the Cheater Volunteer if you wanna be a Cheater!



If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

MMTPT275 Magnolias
I was thinking pelicans since I have a couple of stamps, but it was fun (and much quicker) to pull out this lovely PSX stamp instead and go with the magnolias. I do love them!!
