Default MMTPT281~December 17, 2013~On Gossamer Wings

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #281


On Gossamer Wings




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!



The Rest of the Story:

1: In many cultures the butterfly is seen as a symbol of change, growth, transition, resurrection, elegance, grace, and surrender among others; as well as a symbol of beauty. This unwavering acceptance of her metamorphosis is also symbolic of faith. Here the butterfly beckons us to keep our faith as we undergo transitions in our lives. She understands that our toiling, fretting and anger are useless against the turning tides of nature and asks us to recognize the same.

2: Some people believe that butterflies also are like bees in that they prefer certain colors of flowers. Blue is one of the most often quoted favorite color of many species of butterflies and planting blue flowers should draw more numerous groups of them for your viewing pleasure. I'm not sure if this is true or not but what can we lose? I say, lets all plant some blues and see how many butterflies we can entice to join the gallery this week.


Challenge Translation:

Bring flowers in all shades of blue. Bring large ones, small ones and medium sized ones too. Bring words of encouragement or sympathy and thoughts to soothe.

EPEC: extra points for extra cookies:

If you wanna make sure we have lots of butterflies, how about bringing some of your own. And cats too...yep, that should get you lots of extra cookies

Destination Station:

This week our destination is Oklahoma. If you want a destination for your card how about sending it to Virginia, who was brought to our attention by her friend SCS'er Redi2stamp . To find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit Post #383 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 gallery for challenge MMTPT281


Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT281 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 Sheri (KSNurse) 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!

MMTPT281 Sending Butterflies & Blessings by GardenDiva - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Here's my card Sheri. Quick and easy. Used some of my hoarded SU DSP that had blue flowers. Hope this lady gets lots of cards.

We are AGAIN dark and snowy today so working on a card with springy colors was a nice change of pace!!

What a terrible tragedy to lose two brothers within a week's time. Having lost my younger (and only) brother, my heart goes out big-time to Virginia.

Shades of Blue

Thanks for looking!
