Post MMTPT156 ~ MOVE OVER MISS GINGEY! ADMIT YOU'RE JUST STINGEY!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #156


Move Over Miss Gingey!
Admit You're Just Stingey!
We Know We Can Dress Finer!
With or Without Your Designer!


Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

This is my story!

1. Well, its the end of the month already and you all know what that means! Tickle a Teapotter! Wow, where does the time go? And speaking of time flying by, its usually about July that I begin to think about Christmas cards. My thoughts being, if I start slowly making Christmas cards right now, maybe making one a week, I would have a pretty good stash by December. And then in December, my thoughts are okay, next year, I am gonna start my Christmas cards early! I've done that about 42,000 years in a row! Yikes!

2. So, its Teapot Tuesday's Christmas in July! This challenge is here to help you all get a jump start on your 2011 Christmas cards. Just think, after today, Tuesday, the 26th of July 2011, you will all have one Christmas card made to send to a teapotter! Whoo hoo! One less thing! (Can you all tell I recently watched Forest Gump on TV? ) Teapot Tuesday is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are gonna get! Snort!

3. Meet Stingey Miss Gingey! She's a Ginger Snap Cookie whose really quite happy cuz she dresses so snappy! It's those red and white stripes, so crisp, clean and bright! She just glows with delight in her red and white stripe! She might be a Rookie being a Ginger Snap Cookie but she's not short on style, she beats the others by a mile! A Ginger Snap Fox, one of a kind in the box. See the others just stare? Sorta give her a glare? They just wanna dress snappy, have a chance to be happy! Why can't they dress finer? Won't she share her designer? They'll just have to wing it, decide to just bring it! Show Stingey

Miss Gingey in her fancy striped hat! Show Stingey Miss Gingey that she's not really all that! The more they're exposed to her holiday clothes the faster they'll learn to each take a turn. Step outa the box, become a Ginger Snap Fox!

Move Over Miss Gingey!
Admit You're Just Stingey!
We Know We Can Dress Finer!
With or Without Your Designer!


4. I can't find the words, to describe these young nerds. They simply are clueless, might even be shoeless! I don't think they get it. I probably shouldn't have said it! But they need some direction, a little help, some confection. Let's bring em some sugar, some frosting and candy. Some red and white stripes, that would be oh so dandy! A bow tie at their neck, a little pink in their cheeks, anything to hide that they're really just geeks! They claim that Miss Gingey is oh so stingey. They say she's a louse, won't share the Gingerbread house! You know what to do, bring a gum drop or two. Some suger, some frosting, some over dressed Ginger! Ooh, I saw that! Did you just lick your finger? That Stingey Miss Gingey, the Ginger Snap Rookie, she's a heck of cookie! See Stingey Miss Gingey? Bring that!

If you bring cookies that are other than Ginger you gotta come in the back door! No....wait a minute, I take that back! If you bring any kinda cookies you get extra cookies! Cuz we'll have a ton of em even after hiding some for the newbies! Whoot!

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
It's Christmas in July, Teapot Tuesday Style! Make cards with a Gingerbread theme. Gingerbread men, gingerbread houses....If your short on gingerbread ingredients, bring anything sweet! Cupcakes, Cookies, Ice Cream, Candy...you get the picture!


DESTINATION STATION:

Every last Tuesday of the month is Tickle A Teapotter Week! How about sending your card to a fellow teapotter this week as a little payback or reward to all of those who participate in sending their cards to the recipient of the Destination Station each week. For more information on who to mail your card to if you chose to participate, please visit Post #239 in the 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 my card.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #156 Challenge Gallery .

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT156 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? SCS has given me permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Friday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send me a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater! If you dont' want to cheat, I am posting a sneak peak on my blog each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it sometimes during the weekend before the next Tuesday!

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. Feel free to grab this I survived Teapot Tuesday Badge for your blog!

It took me a while to get the recipe right for the world's biggest cookie. I burned it just the same way as I also do with my cookies. I was inspired by a recipe I was given years ago by a german neighbour who used to make these amazing gingerbread type cookies. When I asked for the recipe I found out it was a family recipe handed down through many generations and one of the ingredients, believe it or not, is black pepper. They are the most delicious Christmas cookies I make and whoever gets this card I will include the recipe. Here is my "Supersize Me".

I got into a gingerbread mode so here's another cookie creation for you. I won't tickle anyone with this one as it's not as pretty as I pictured it in my head. Here is my Mr & Mrs Gingerbread.

MMTPT157
MMTPT157, FISHIN' by redi2stamp - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
the link above should get you to my card.
There's something you should know, I'm a tea potter on the go!
And I really like sugar and spice and everythink sweet and pretty and nice,
like lace and things that are frilly, but fashion and sophistication on me.
That's just silly. Though yellow, green and blue, now that I can do!
And for a teaparty with you I've wishin, but today, I think I'll just go fishin'.
"Catch" you next rhyme! Wink Wink
