Default MMTPT231 ~ January 1, 2013 ~ Tea for Two - One Pink and One Blue

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY MMTPT231 AND THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
for January 1, 2013

Tea for Two one pink & one blue!



Tea for Two - One Pink and One Blue
December 19th was a glorious day
can I please have a Hip Hip Hooray?
We're gonna celebrate the birth of 2 neonates.
Double the fun because there's two, not one.
Fraternal twins are such a treat, so let's make sure this party is sweet.
As an added plus, their Grandmother is one of our own!
APandi is the Grammy of these babies who have never been alone.
For Theo & Sopris who've shared everything from day one.
Let's have a teaparty that is chock full of fun.
Their room is yellow, mint green and white
it's there they'll nap and go nighty-night.
For this very special, cherished pair
I've found a teapot with teddy bears
I don't want you to work too hard but whatever inspires you to put on their card, do it twice to make it extra nice.
Double the brads, the ribbon or pearls
make one blue for the boy and one pink for the girl.
"Two to Love" by Lenore Johnson
There's two to wash, there's two to dry,
There's two who argue, there's two who cry.
One's in the mud having a ball,
The other holds a crayon, another marked wall.
Some days seem endless, my patience grows thin.
Why was I chosen to be a mother of twins?
The answer comes clear at the end of the day,
As I tuck them in bed and to myself I say,
There's two to kiss, there's two to hug,
And best of all, there's two to love.



CHALLENGE TRANSLATION: Make a card that celebrates the birth of twins.

EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES (EPEC):
Bring two of something; one in pink & one in blue.




DESTINATION STATION:

This week our destination is Greeley CO.

If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Andrea? Andrea is 44, married 19 years, had miscarriages and now this miracle of not one, but two, perfect babies.

She who was brought to our attention by our fellow teapotter and her Mom, Marilynn, (APandi). Here is a link to her gallery

For more information as well as the address to mail your card to please visit Post #330 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 link to my card.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #MMTPT231 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT231 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.

I made two because I didn't like my first one and then after I made my second one; they both looked good to me. So will send off two!

Hi everybody. Happy New Year. I'm back.. did ya miss me?? LOL. I sure missed you guys. I'm back in limited capacity. I have to be careful how long I sit at my scrap desk. I still have to wear this neck brace for another 10 weeks or so then it's on to PT. I'm dreading that part. I've heard it's the worst part of the surgery. When I read my cheater email, I couldn't pass up making a card for Erik and Andrea. My husband and I have experienced four miscarriages is 7 years so I totally understand the thrill of these babies being born. So, without further ado, here's mine for Theo and Sopris.

One Pink, One Blue front

One Pink, One Blue inside

Oh yeah, on my first challenge back, I get some extra cookies...like we didn't have enough over the holidays..hehe

Congrats to Andrea and Erik, and to Marilynn and family! How very exciting!! Every time I read a story like this one, it touches me deeply. To welcome a baby (two babies!) into the world after suffering losses is such an incredible blessing. Thank you for allowing me to share in your joy with this CARD.
