Default MMTPT203 ~ June 19, 2012 ~ It's Burt, The Herder, The Founder of Twurter!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #203


It's Burt, The Herder, The Founder of Twurter!
Lay Low in the Grass! This is Gonna Be a Gas!


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. Happy Teapot Tuesday! It's a minature teapot! Hanging on a chain! The kind one would see hanging on a ceiling fan! Tee hee! What's that on it? I know what you all will say.......Oh, Look! There's Curt. Curt, The Squirt! Curt, being the Teapot Tuesday Mascot that he is, does have a tendancy to show up quite often! I'll never forget the first Tuesday he showed up! Hey, maybe you all would like to read about that. Here you go, read about Curt's first appearance at a teaparty and see him here! What a fateful day! Snort! But, this is not Curt, although he is probably kin to Curt. Nope, this is not Curt, this is Burt!

2. Burt is annoyed 24/7 because he has a very irritating birdie that keeps landing on his butt! Tweet, Tweet, Tweet! Twitter, Twitter, Twitter!!! Blah, Blah, Blah! He is sick and tired of hearing this obnoxious birdie talk about how famous she is! Tweet this and tweet that! Twitter this and twitter that! Blah, Blah, Blah! He's been doing his research and even though Miss Birdie on the Butt is feeding him a bunch of malarkey about how she is responsible for the most popular and successful social media fad EVER, he knows she's full of baloney and he has a plan to put her in her place! What a nut case! He just wants to hit her! She;s not the only one that can Twitter!

3. Okay, okay, Miss Birdie on the Butt can tweet, we will give her that! But Burt can Twurt! Other critters can twitter! He will show her! Burt has become the Herder, the Herder of the Twurters! He has herded up some pretty amazing Twurters! Twurt! Twurt! Twurt!

It's Burt, The Herder, The Founder of Twurter!
Lay Low in the Grass! This is Gonna Be A Gas!

The plan is to all get together on June 19th, hide in the meadow and when Miss Birdie on the Butt shows up, everyone will jump out and start Twurting! Twurt, Twurt, Twurt! Twurt till her ears hurt! Snicker, Snicker, Snort!

He's herded up some amazing twurters! Here's who's coming:

Zeus, Tony, Orlando, and Dawn, Dave and Dianne, Joker, Cheyenne, Cloe, Tommy, Spook, Wilbur and Louie. Whoo hoo!

4. Burt's a little nervous! He has never met these Twurters in person before! He has only Twurted with them! He has no clue what kinda Twurter critters they are! He just hopes that none of them are birdies! Birdies in disquise? Yikes! But he refuses to think about that now, it won't be long before they all show up and he'll have them hiding in the meadow waiting for the daily appearance of Miss Birdie on the Butt!! Won't be long before THAT mouth is shut!

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
Bring a card with a critter on it. Any kinda critter! Pick the name of one of the 13 Twurters listed above and show us what kinda Twurter critter you personally think it is! Show us YOUR version of the kind of critter that showed up to put Miss Birdie on the Butt in her place! Don't forget to bring a name tag with your Twurter's name on it! Oh, and if you bring a birdie, you have to come through the back door, I mean meadow, and hide where the cow patties lie!

EPEC: (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES)
You get extra cookies for bringing minature critters.....those that will be small enough to go virtually unseen while lying in the meadow. You know how it is, Birdie on the Butt has a birds eye view of the meadow!!

Hold on! Now wait a minute! There are extra extra points for extra extra cookies? You get extra extra points for extra extra cookies for making a Christmas Critter card! Yes, you heard write. Leave it blank, don't sign inside and those extra extra cookies are as good as yours! Whoot!

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is Brook Park, Minnesota. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to fellow SCSer Vikki (Vikkijo.) Vikkijo's story was brought to us by Ina (yellowrose46) and Rita (scootsv). Vikkijo is the Moderator of the Christmas Card challenge here at SCS and is very encouraging and inspirational to those who work hard all year to get their Christmas cards done ahead of time! Vikkijo needs a little cheering up from her fellow SCSer's at this time.

To find out why and the address to mail your card to, please visit Post #300 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 Ina (yellowrose46) made for Vikki.

Here is the awesome card that Rita (scootsv) made for Vikki.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #203 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT203 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 Saturday 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!

Here's my card for Vikki -- with my version of Cheyenne, the boxer.

No Christmas card here, either.

OK I'm relegated to coming in the back door. I brought a Cardinal named Zeus who is on the lookout for that pest Miss Birdie on the Butt. See, he is wearing his official red outfit and he has his Badge tucked in his shirt. His covert operatives are hiding behind the holly leaves ready to haul Miss Birdie on the Butt to the hoosegow for trespassing on unsuspecting cow's butts. I hope I didn't imagine that it was OK to bring a Christmas card to the party. But then again this is a teaparty and imaginations can take flight.

I have had mega internet issues today - the frustration seems to have wiped away any imagination I might have had - but I finally got my card uploaded:

It was fun making the sample card, and I will have it off in the mail today, as snail mail takes a long time to cross the border. Looking forward to seeing all the great cards for Vikki Jo!

Instead of finding a critter I decided to go the miniature route and bring out my mini snowmen and made a set of cards for Vikki to get her started.

Well my fellow teapotters; grab a cup of tea and have a seat, while Cindy's not looking I'll sneak you a treat. I hope you like what I made for the party this week, just click on the link and sneak you a peek.
