Post MMTPT185 ~ February 14, 2012 ~ TWAS THE DAY BEFORE TUESDAY!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY AND CHALLENGE #185


Twas the Day Before Tuesday!
And All Through The Gallery!
Not a Teapotter Was Stirring!
Not Even Sweet Malorie!

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. First things first!

Happy Valentines Day, Friends!

2. Searching week after week for suitable teapots to feature, I have bumped into many amazing teapot collector's collections of teapots! I find myself thinking, where do they put all of them? As well, what do their husbands think as more and more teapots come through the door? I think at some point, when bringing new teapots home, a teapot collector must begin to disquise them, hide them, camouflage them within the decor of their home. Like in this picture! Upon entering the room, you don't even see any teapots! You only see a side table and lamp in beautiful pink, I think! Get the picture?

This picture prompts me to tell you a little story of just such a scenario.....

Twas the day before Tuesday, and all through the gallery.
Not a Teapotter was stirring, not even Sweet Malorie!
The teapots were polished that morning with care,
In hopes that JT would not show up there.

The stampers were nestled all snug in their beds.
While visions of cookies danced in their heads.
And Curt in his ‘kerchief, after a long restful nap,
Was chewing the cud and listening to rap!

When out in the tea parlor there arose such a clatter,
The Teapotters wondered what the heck is the matter!
Some ran to the window, some slid across the floor
But most of them headed to the famous back door.

The moon in the sky put on quite a big show
and revealed where the cookies were hidden below.
When suddenly they realized that this was not good.
JT had arrived and was disrupting the hood.

With an annoying mean look and a most definate smirk,
All the Teapotters knew, it must be the jerk!
He immediately noticed! The Teapotters! They came!
And he yelled and he shouted! Despite all their fame!

Oh Fiddlesticks! Dagnabbit! Oh, Bummer! Oh Geeze!
Oh Darn it! Aww Phooey! Oh Man! Geeze Louise!
Up from the sidewalk, to the door at the back!
Now go away! Go Away! And don't you come back!

As sure as the tea to be brewed the next day,
He knew these Teapotters would certainly get their way!
Back down the sidewalk, his feet, they just flew!
A teaparty was planned, its obvious, he just knew!

And then, in a twinkling, he had a heartwarming idear!
Don't cancel their party, they can still have it here!
Despite hating tea, he can turn this thing round,
And through the back door, JT came with a bound.

He was tickled to announce, the teaparty's still on!
He came up with an idea running across his green lawn.
I promise not to despise it if you all promise to disguise it!
Have your cookies, drink you tea, just hide it from me!

His eyes how they sparkled! His smile how merry!
He was actually quite charming, and now not so scarey!
His idea had some merit! His idea had some spunk!
Camouflage our teaparty. Hide the tea from the hunk!

Sweet Malorie is excited, her party's still on!
Thank goodness JT had this idea on the lawn!
She smiled so sweet at her best friend Kelly.
Bring the tea, bring the scones and the homemde jelly!

She spoke not a word, but went straight to her work,
While singing out loud, my hubby is so not a jerk!
And laying her finger aside of her nose,
Her heart it just swelled and her admiration, it rose!

He sprang to his feet, to his wife gave a smile,
Out the back door he went, he'd be back in awhile.
But she heard him exclaim, 'ere he walked through the gate.
Happy Valentines Day to All! And to all, have fun with my mate!

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
Camouflage something on your card. And if you having trouble hiding something and then remembering where you hid it, just make a card using camouflage, pink or otherwise! Just be inspired by the room in which a collection of teapots is camouflaged within the decor! Or bring a teapot camouflaged within your card! Pinks and reds are great in honor of Valentines Day but not required!

EPEC: (Extra Points for Extra Cookies!)
You get extra points for extra cookies if you include a heart in your camouflage card in honor of Valentine's Day and in honor of JT's loving jesture in making his special someone happy by allowing our teaparty to exist this 14th day of February, 2012! You da man JT!

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is Burksville, Kentucky. If you would like a destination for your cards this week, how about sending them to Katy. Katy is the sister of Samantha, a very dear friend of fellow Teapotter Eva (evasempermom). Katy is having some extreme medical problems with her heart and liver.

For more information including Will and Nate's address go to Post #272 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 my card.

Here is the awesome card that Eva (Evasempermom) made for Katy.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #185 Challenge Gallery .

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT185 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 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!

Happy Valentine's Day to you, Cindy!

I'm afraid I'm not too good at camouflage.....I was always rotten at Hide & Seek. Anyway, hope Katy enjoys the card with semi-hidden teapots.

TEA ON THE GO

Yikes - I'm glad I've got time at work this morning to think about this before I try making anything.
Your stories are always wonderful, Cindy, but this one is super-duper specially brilliant.

Here's my card for Katy... I always have camo paper...having Marines for sons and friends in other branches I never know when I am gonna need to use it. I found some old valentine paper I had stuck away from a couple of years ago

Thanks so much for sharing your talent and making cards to brighten Katy's day. It means the world to me.

Got my card done for Katy. I'm not so good at camouflage, but I did hide some hearts on the card. Can you find them?

I have enjoyed browsing through at all the wonderful camouflage cards. I wish I could have done a good as job camouflaging something on my card. Here's my, "Forever Friends" card.

All of your cards look fantastic!! Mine turned out like a train wreck...not good, not good at all. I'm may try again, but I'm struggling a bit with ideas for the camouflage. Maybe I'll be inspired after browsing some more in the gallery.

Hope that you all have a Happy Valentine's Day!!

Good thing da mudder re-emphasized the no rule part of this challenge. I have some camouflage dp but it is more suitable for my male hunter relatives - so I hid the cookies!

I just realized that there is a recipient worthy of handmade cards for this challenge. I made my card for my friend who going through chemo right now - and for whom the future looks bleak and short. I will make another for Katy and send it this week.
