Default MMTPT214 ~ September 4, 2012 ~ BEULAH FERRIS'S DAY OFF!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY


THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #214

BEULAH FERRIS'S DAY OFF!

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!

Beulah Ferris’s Day Off
I've watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! - not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

William Wordsworth, "To a Butterfly"

Beulah Ferris wanted nothing more than a day off.
She was tired of flitting about pollinating so many colorful flowers.
Being an exquisitely beautiful butterfly is hard work
She needed a vacation before she went berserk.

Beulah needed a relaxing rest
Just once, to be treated like a guest
One single day to bask in the sun
was her idea of ultimate fun.
If she had no work to do
She’d just land and enjoy the view.
Stop and sip some nectar.
Not have to travel too far.
No worries about some kid catching her in a jar!

When you need something done
Just call on the Teapotters
We’re a group that likes to have fun
We’re as busy as hungry otters.
Teapotters to the Rescue!
Isn’t that what we do?
You can always count on us
Feed us cookies and we won’t make a fuss.

Our mission is to bring flowers that a tired, overworked butterfly can rest on. If you bring a friend for Beulah that she can land next to and talk to butterfly style that would be good, too.

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
Bring flowers and butterflies.
Extra cookies if you include encouraging Scripture.

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is Ransom, PA.If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Brenda? She was brought to our attention by scrappinmama72inpa.
Here's a link to her gallery.


For more information as well as the address to send your card to please visit Post #314 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's my card for Brenda

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #214 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT214 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 Cindy (Mothermark) 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 her 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!

I didn't have time to make a new card for Brenda because I was home in Orlando visiting with family this past weekend. But I have lots of butterfly cards in my stash so I'm sure I have something appropriate to send!

I'm afraid I had to cheat a little today. This card was already made previously and I had not used it nor did it have a sentiment. Insde now had the verse: For nothing is impossible with God Luke 1:37
I just wanted to get one in the mail and it fit the flowers and butterflies:

I'm such a bad teapotter. I was supposed to have my card ready for Fran before the cheater email went out. I got sidetracked with the first week of homeschool with my daughter. Bad Teapotter..Bad Teapotter...

But I did get Brenda's card made. I want to thank all you ladies who are sending me cards to send along to Brenda. She is having a very hard time. She's in a rehab center learning to walk again and use her left hand again. She is speaking some, but it's going to be a long road for her. She is going to love all the cards and kind words. Thanks so much.

Brenda's Card

I had this ready late last night but just was too tired to upload it so I am a day late. This goes out to Brenda with warm thoughts and prayers. TFL

Hi Ladies,
I have been through the gallery and I can't believe all the beautiful cards that you ladies have made for Brenda. She is going to be overwhelmed. I received the first card today. My mailbox should be starting to overflow with love for Brenda soon. I can't wait for her to receive the package with all these cards in them. Thanks so much for putting so much care and love into the cards you made. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
