Congrats Cindy on being QFTD...you so deserve it...I really did go to your gallery and stayed so long I had to take a nap before I continued but still couldn't find a card that I could case....to IN--TIM--I-DATED....
So I thought I'd do a card in honor of the Teapot cards...since Teapot Tues. is one of the highlights of my week...Well, I went searching and searching waaaaay back to plan a good representation....Oh my, the animals you have introduced us to...and the occ. wacky forms of transportation....and the people needing help that only 42,000 teapotters could provide....So I think I got it all here:
shaped card---semi check, it's a stairstep card
someone needing rescued---check
wild creatures with a story to tell---check
wide load requiring pack mule to deliver---check
This is my story:
When I heard who this week's illustrious SCS'er was to be, I knew right away I needed to get myself to Africa and find this 42,000 carat diamond I'd heard about...My friend Leonardo Lion knew all about it and even knew where we could find transportation sturdy enough to haul if off.. After we got away with our prize, word started spreading quickly who the recipient of this phenomenal gem was and Leo and I both were kept busy fending off the paparazzi and fielding questions from everyone wanting to hitch a ride on the gravy train so to speak...
Leo, ever the enterprising sort, knew where the back gate to the winter compound of the circus is and where the old trains were parked...he figured we'd be back in Florida before they came home for the winter and no-one would be the wiser...Well, you shoulda heard the din.....you could hardly hear yourself think with all of them arguing on who was going and who was going to ride where and who could shake Cindy's hand first...sheesh!!! what a mess....Leo to the rescue again....brought a couple extra cars and all were able to crowd on board....except for Ramon that is....seems he is a little full of himself after driving to CO....now he thinks he can fly...oh dear....please don't anyone tell him that his landing gear is down....and while you're up there; Ramon!, get Lou-La-Bella down outta that tree before she falls!!!.....
Looks like they are about outta farm country and to the foothills so all is going well....the crown should be there soon....
OK, about this silly card...it's all cut on the cricut except for the crown which is stamped and embossed before the fabulous crown jewels added.
TFL....and Cindy, sure hope you had fun with the crown....just remember it's very heavy....

Bwahaha! HOLY COW, GIRAFFE, PELICAN, OWL, CAT, FISHIE, MOUSE, BEAR, ZEBRA, FROG (OR IS THAT A MONKEY? SNORT!)
This is such a kick! Giggle! Looking at this card and reading your story gave me such a giggle. One of those moments when the photographer turns around and looks at me like I am a looney bird.....can't imagine why he might think that! Snort!
I agree with Pat, what a story! So fun....I am so tickled you made this wonderful card instead of casing one of mine! Much better choice and talk about a one of a kind! A polka dotted train bringing me my crown delivered by all the animals we have partied with! Look, even Zeke the Zebra and Curt the Squirt are on board! I am surprised Curt's not trying to pedal his necklaces on everyone! Tee hee!
It's so awesome! I love it! And may I be so bold to say, this is one of those cards that you will probably have to send to me...who else ya gonna send it to? I will pay the postage! Giggle!

there you are and there's the crown! Yeah, we've finally found the crown. What a nifty idea to go way back into the TPT challenges! What you've come up with to honor Cindy is just a hoot and a half. Too fun.
