MMTPT92 ~ ABRACADABRA HOCUS POCUS!! HOW DO I KNOW MY CARD IS IN FOCUS??
 
2 Attachment(s)
WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY AND CHALLENGE #92
ABRACADABRA, HOCUS POCUS!!
HOW DO I KNOW MY CARD IS IN FOCUS??

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!


Special Note: Sorry for the late upload. I was waiting to see how things would shake out this morning at SCS! As you all know we have been asked not to upload to the gallery until SCS has things squared away. It seems cards have been disappearing, are not viewable, are sometimes replaced with red X's! After reading my challenge you will know it might be my fault! Snort! Don't tell anyone what I brought to the Tea Party this week! I don't wanna get kicked outa SCS!

1. If Teapot Tuesday was a race, I think I would be winning! Not because I would be winning, but because I am so far behind, it's like I'm in first!! I honestly can't believe how fast Tuesday snuck up on me! Being out of town didn't help but I am usually a little more on top of stuff! Heck, I haven't even commented on last week's cards and today a whole nuther teapot gallery will begin to magically appear! And that's not the only thing I have not done! Giggle!

2. Speaking of magic, this cute little teapot has just got to be straight outa the Magical Teapot Hall of Fame! It's gotta be! The black top hat, the magically appearing rabbit, the playing cards, and of course, the magical wand. And if all that is not enough, something magically strange happened to my card when this little teapot arrived. It disappeared! I know, I know, it seems a little fishy but I am not telling you a story, feedin' you a line! I made the cutest little card, the spittin' image of this teapot and once it was in the presence of this teapot, it magically disappeared! Just look at it below! It's not there! The only thing left is my watermark and Marilynn's wee little teapot pin! Yikes!!

AbraCaDabra, Hocus Pocus!!
How do I know my card is in focus?

3. Here's the trick Mick! Mick is David Copperfield's mentor! He's made 42,000 items disappear in his illustrious career! He taught David everything he knows! We are off to experience David Copperfield's magic, try to get a few pointers, tips, lessons in magic. Maybe meet the talented magician that is responsible for my card disappearing, magically removed with the watermark still there!! How might we bring it back? AbraCaDabra, Hocus Pocus!! How do I know if my card was in focus? Snort!

4. Just in case this little teapot and its magical abilities are too much for David to compete with and he can't solve the mystery of my disappearing card, then let's bring some magic of our own! We'll teach him how to make things disappear! Bring a card, any card, the sky's the limit, but in your commentary, you have to inform us of what was magically removed from it! What you made disappear, what was once there but is no longer!

Whut? I hope you guys don't think I am pulling your leg about my card magically disappearing! You might be thinking that I made this story up, never made a card in the first place! Well, I may have told a story or two in the past but I can guaranty that this challenge is not in the world of make believe. Its true, its for real! My card is simply not there and I sorta suspect it will never show up!! So show me your wonderful card inspired by this magical little teapot and let's hear about what you made disappear on your card! Remember, the sky is the limit, no requirements here!


I have help this week with two great sample cards!

One made by......

Oh no! The Teapotters Who Made My Sample Cards Disappeared!!

Here is where my card was!

Thank you all for understanding why my card truly is invisible this week! Thank you all for your kind words, cards, and thoughtful sympathy wishes! I will be back to Tea Party mode next week for sure![/SIZE][/B]

Quick Link to Teapot Tuesday #92 Challenge Gallery and our adventures with David Copperfield and his mentor!!

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT92 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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

JOAN ERVIN ~ 5/7
PAT SMETHERS ~ 5/9
MARILYNN ~ 5/10


HAPPY Birthday You Two!! I hope you both have wonderful birthdays! Hey, you onery Teapotters! Bring their birthday cakes back! Whut? They disappeared? Hey Joan and Marilynn, don't worry, don't cry! I will get your birthday cakes back if its the last thing I do! Snort!

And in exchange, I will see if I can make some of your *years* disappear! How's that?

Edit! I just edited my birthday wish to include Pat Smethers! Don't tell her I did that, she is one of those that likes to keep her birthday a secret but we won't be having that! Nope! We won't! Happy Birthday Pat!!!

etsdas 05-04-2010 04:09 AM

Have all the replies disappeared or am I first? I think my whole life qualifies for this challenge, as there are at least 42,000 items that have disappeared from my RV! When I make cards the image I just colored can some times vanish!

Now this challenge is certainly that - I need to think about that one LOL!

Welcome back, Cindy. And I hope you are not fretting about comments for last week - we certainly understand.

Happy birthday Joan and Marilynn.
Stamping is magic, because stuff disappears all the time. I could make a card in half the time if images, stamps, adhesive and embellies didn't disappear off my desk every time I worked on a card.

LilLuvsStampin 05-04-2010 05:44 AM

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Joan, Pat, and Marilynn!!!! I see the years "disappearing" from your youthful faces and hope each of you has a abracadabra supercalifragilistic expealidocious splendiferously wonderful magical day!

Now, Patty Cakes, don't you be mad at da Mudder for revealing your birthday. We all would be so disappointed if we missed wishing our sweet sistah a happy birthday!

LilLuvsStampin 05-04-2010 05:45 AM

Hey, Mudder! When ya gonna work some magic and get SCS fixed so we can upload our disappearing cards when we get them done? Hmmmmm?????

Cook22 05-04-2010 05:57 AM

Eek, I'll having to get a thinking hat on pronto for this - or maybe that top hat?
I'm sorry I didn't know it was Pat's birthday, I only just updated my list last week and got organised for May; at least I know I am not losing it altogether. I'm hoping Joan's house doesn't disappear when my card gets there, like it did last year ;-).
Still seems to be preferred that we don't upload, so I'll practice some Patience with that deck of cards.

Birthday Greetings
 
Happy Birthday to Joan, Pat & Marilyn. Hope your day is special in every way & that you are surrounded by those you love most.

JD from PAUSA 05-04-2010 06:30 AM

Welcome back, Cindy...and Happy Birthday to Joan, Pat, Marilynn. I hope your birthday(s) is as special as mine was last week. (Husband took me to a Bed and Breakfast for my Birthday) The teapot is so cute...but Your disappearing card is so funny. I thought I was the only one who has things disappearing all the time. I actually keep a list of things I can't find. (and of course, sometimes even the list disappears)

tracim 05-04-2010 06:34 AM

Cindy, Hey I am relieved you're back and am giggling reading up on your tea party challenge this week!! I don't care if your card magically disappeared, at least you are with us!! Yippee!!

Okay, so Happy Birthday to three wonderful people,
Joan, Pat, and Marilynn...and all the others I have not been on to see...
Happy May Birthdays!!

Cindy: I'd like to echo Traci's sentiments that I, too, am relieved you are home safely:

We miss you, Mudder
Oh, yes, we do
We miss you, Mudder
It's always true
When you're not with us
we're bluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuue!
Oh, Mudder we missed you!

MariLynn 05-04-2010 06:56 AM

Thanks for the b-day wishes. I got the coolest stamp set yesterday for my birthday. I'm sure you all will be seeing it used a lot in the days to come. I hope we can start uploading cards soon. Sounds like a really neat challenge. I'm running behind too Cindy. Maybe we can use our magic to stop time until we catch up. Happy Birthday Joan and Pat!

~CA~ 05-04-2010 07:16 AM

Well, something else has disappeared, and there's not even a red X to replace it!!

Mothermark 05-04-2010 07:25 AM

OMG! When I was in Minnesota you all got goofier!! Who'd a thunk! Giggle! Okay, we gotta really learn some stuff from Copper-Baby. We got the SCS website to fix, we got time to stop, we got disappearing houses (Joan's) to find, we got birthday years to get rid of, we got missing stamping supplies, 42,000 of them. We gotta do alot of stuff today! Has anyone seen David? Oh no, don't tell me Mick disappeared him????? Snort!

Hey, when did the cookies disappear? The ones with black frosting and while sprinklies????

You are the goofiest! At least that is what I think!

Princessheather 05-04-2010 09:08 AM

WOW! Cindy what a perfect idea for this week's party with all of the things that have been disappearing from SCS. I love it, you are so very clever!!

Here's mine:

Cook22 05-04-2010 11:01 AM

As it seems we're still not meant to upload till maybe tomorrow, I'm sticking mine here as an attachment temporarily. I had a head-wrecking day at work, and having got my bunny made, I don't want him to disappear in the gallery. I'll upload it into my gallery tomorrow with full details.
What's missing is batteries for my flash, to use off-camera, ha ha. This will go to my nephew tomorrow saying maybe he can change the money inside into something he'd like. But I hope I'll be able to take a better picture when I can use my flash.

Here I am, in the gallery :D. Well done the SCS team.
Hey Presto

This was a super fun challenge. Had me digging for the very first stamp set I ever received!!! here is mine.http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=253126 TFL!!!

jovialjudi 05-04-2010 02:54 PM

Thanks Cindy!! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY May gals and anyone else I missed!!
Here is mine

etsdas 05-04-2010 03:52 PM

HAPPY BIrthday for the May celebrants. And many more...

Waiting for the gallery to open was trying my patience - then I missed the announcement LOL!

Having something disappear is pretty easy for me - just figuring out how to make it relate to a card was the challenge. Guess that is why this is called a challenge, right?

I did find a couple of helpful ideas for David - do you suppose he will see our tips?

WHERE'D THAT RABBIT GO?

HamiltonGal 05-04-2010 05:21 PM

Glad you're home safely Cindy!

Happy Birthday to the May ladies - hope you all have extra special days - AND CAKE --- big hugs!!!

Here's my card - my mojo disappeared two weeks ago and I'm hoping the magic of the tea party will bring it back !! Hey - come to think of it, the last card I did was for a tea party - that granny must have knocked me flat on my you know what LOL!!

artystamper 05-04-2010 05:32 PM

thanks for looking

Hocus Pocus????
 
So there I was minding my own business making a card with my new Manhatten Flower EF, and I swore I colored the roses and butterflies. I stepped away because of 42,000 phone calls and when I came back the only color left on the card was the yellow butterfly and a little moonlight white ink (Brilliance) http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...372?&cat=19428 . Well that was okay as I love grey and yellow and the yellow butterfly has special meaning (it reminds me that my late mother is watching over me). But then whe I got up this morning and looked at the card again - hey where did the yellow butterfly go????? http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...373?&cat=19428 Darn that Mick and his David Copperfield magic!

Gaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh - and then after my cards disappeared and I reposted them the keyword on the repost "disappeared". Once the cards are reapproved all should be right in SCS world <<shaking fist at Mick the magician and his darn rabbit>>

pidgesmom 05-06-2010 03:27 AM

Joan, Pat and Marilynn - a big Happy Birthday to all of you!!!

Here is my card - besides the flowers, time has definitely been disappearing on me this week!

When I think of what I'd like to make dissapear (other than my hips) this is what I came up with:

catgondek 05-07-2010 02:51 AM

My card disappeared on Tuesday and I just got it back up. No rhyme this time.

Actually what really disappeared from my life was Monday. My husband took me out to lunch on Tuesday and I mentioned I was doing laundry and getting caught up and "Mondays are always like that" --- he looked at me kindly and spoke very slowly as he told me it was indeed Tuesday ... ahhhh. This is what it is going to be like getting old ... so what I was missing this week was Monday which appeared on Tuesday and made my card late till Friday. Go figure.

Here it is:

daisydilly 05-07-2010 06:35 AM

I've got a card made just need to get it on the computer and in the gallery and knowing me I'll forget!!!

Stamp Muse 05-08-2010 12:17 PM

Too funny, Cindy! You crack me up! Well, in my case, the butterfly went missing on my card as evidenced here:

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...640?&cat=16127

Happy day everyone!

daisydilly 05-08-2010 12:40 PM

I'm guessing this is where we post our cards--if not I know they will disappear like they normally do. I'm not much of a story teller so nothing grand to go along with this!!! Some one else is welcome to make up something if they wish.

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=226559

daisydilly 05-10-2010 05:13 AM

Hummm seems my cards have up and vanished !!!! Do you suppose there is something going on here ???? I'm just hoping that it's becuase I had to go in and make some edits to mine. But it was here -really it was

virgo5 05-10-2010 06:25 AM

It took me awhile to come up with something, but here goes...Disappearing Lollipop!

Thanks for the challenge:D
