First of all, a nod to the late Lewis Grizzard; the Elvis quote was the name of one of my favorite books by him. My second favorite was "They Tore My Heart Out and Stomped that Sucker Flat". Lewis had a real way with words.
I decided to try the Teapot Challenge for the first time. It has to do with a picture of a Teapot, a story and the challenge. Y'all KNOW I'm always up for a story! The only downside was that I had asked if it was some type of children's story and had been told no, that it was "a story told by adults" and somehow my screwed up synapses heard 'adult story' and, needless to say, my expectations weren't quite met.

First of all.....welcome to the teaparty! You will be a super addition to our Tuesday party! This card is gorgeous! I'm not just saying that because blue is my favourite colour. I love those beautiful hydrangeas! I love the dimension on them and the sweet gold butterflies. It's a real beauty. I'm sorry you were disappointed in the story.

Thanks for the sweet compliments! Ina, I want to kiss and cuddle that beautiful baby every time I see this picture! I wasn't disappointed in the story at all...I was trying to make a tongue in cheek joke about hoping for 'adult stories'...wink, wink...but, as usual, I couldn't pull it off. I really need to give up this comedy thing...not like I HAD a 'comedy thing' but I can pretend, right??? :) I just found out the story behind this week and I'm genuinely happy I can contribute to an SCS sister. How heartbreaking in so many ways and Virginia's situation is something most of us can relate to, in terms of having been there or imagining her pain. I think of my darling brother...we are so close...I can't even process what she must be going through. I wish I could give her a hug and help in any way I could, but this card will have to suffice. I'm so happy to 'meet' all of you and look forward to this weekly challenge. Kudos to all of you for having such gigantic hearts...I hope you know how incredibly special y'all are!! Mwaaah!
