WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY AND CHALLENGE #82
GIMME' SOME SOUP! I DID A LOOP-DE-LOOP!!
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! 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!
This is my story!
1. Yep, you guessed it! A completely white teapot! Yikes. What are we gonna do with that? Well, I really wasn't sure but things just have a way of working out! Some of you may have heard that Shaun White has been secretly training at his private Colorado halfpipe (dubbed Project X) in Silverton, Colorado prior to the olympics. Well, we are off to Project X to help Shaun deal with a couple of issues! Don't worry, I worked out free snowboarding lessons for us teapotters! Woot! Dress warm, really warm and if you don't have a snowboard, bring your kid's plastic snow saucer. That'll work!!
2. Abner, the Abdominable Snowman (See his picture below!) really didn't know what to think when Shaun White invaded his neck of the woods and started building a big halfpipe with heavy equipment! When an aggitated Abner approached Shaun and told him he was on his turf, Shaun tried to calm him down and bribe him by giving him free snowboarding lessons! Didn't work! Abner said, are you crazy? I don't wanna hafta do 42,000 of those double gainer foot grab triple toe loop side 360 twist flip thingys that you do!! I'd kill myself if I tried that stuff besides they don't make a snowboard big enough for me!! So Shawn asked him what he could do for him in exchange for sharing his turf during training season? And as a result, we have a purpose on this Teapot Tuesday! It seems Abner has an issue with white! (Don't tell Abner that Shaun's last name is please!) Yikes!
3. He's sick of white! White, white, white, white, white! That is all he has seen all his years! He is white, he lives in white, his family is white, his foot prints are white, his snow cave is white, its all white, white, white, white, white!!!! He just wants some color in his life! He doesn't wanna learn how to snowboard, he doesn't wanna learn how to drive the heavy equipment, he doesn't wanna cup of hot chocolate, a new flat screen tv, a toe nail cutter, a closer shave, or nuttin'! He just wants some color in his life! That's where we come in.
4. So here is the scoop, Loop-de-Loop! Loop-de-Loop is the amazing heavy equipment operating wizard/professional halfpipe builder dude that Red Bull hired to build Project X. He earned the nic name Loop-de-Loop because he stands at the top of the halfpipe and yells, do a Loop-de-Loop Shaun!! (He's Shaun's biggest fan!) Our job in exchange for snowboarding lessons is to bring Abner some color! Something that he can be happy about. But just one word of caution, we need to break him in gently. Use a white background and then add your splash of color to that so he doesn't flip out! And don't bring any white snowflakes, divinity, or vanilla milkshakes as they bring out the worst in Abner and believe me, we don't wanna see his worst!
Brrrr........It's cold! Hot tea is good but this free style stuff makes ya work up an appetite! Anyone that does a Loop-de-Loop, gets some yummy hot soup!
I have help this week with two great sample cards!
Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT82 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? I am posting a sneak peak (tea peek) on my blog each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it a couple days after the Tuesday Challenge is posted. So, be sneaky and get a jump on the other tea-potters! Snort!
If you are confused about these challenge, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges
I'll be back to comment and can't wait to see all the creations this week!

Okay, I am outa traction.....and even though I missed most of the challenge being layed up in the hospital, I had so much fun yesterday! All the cards rocked and I am sure there will be more to come that I can keep an eye out for! You guys are way to goofy for me!!!
Well, I finally made it...plumbing problems at the house kinda made for a "fun" weekend, not to mention babysitting my great-niece (2 yr old!) while DH was working on the plumbing! Wooo Hooo! Glad to get away for a cup or two of tea!! Thanks for waiting for me! Here's my card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=78641
Needless to say, I had to use the phone-camera at my office this morning to get a picture...so not the best! But, with all that snow - there would be glare, eh?
