Post MMTPT161 ~ REMEMBER THE THUG, THE BIG YELLAH BUG?

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #161


REMEMBER THE THUG, THE BIG YELLOW BUG?
REMEMBER THE SNATCH, THE KIDNAP, THE CATCH?


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!

This is my story!

1. When I decided I wanted to do a Ladybug teapot this week, I had huge difficulty making a decision between three teapots! The first one was just plain old happy! The big ole flower with the little ladybugs flitting around, so precious!

The second one was just so darn cute! Maybe if I had a big ole ladybug teapot like this in my kitchen, I would have better L~U~C~K in not burning my cookies! Don't worry, I don't bring burnt ones to the teaparties! I feed the burnt ones to the Photographer (dh!). Poor guy!

The third one just makes me smile! Love, love, love the big ole leaves with ladybugs just everywhere! So, you won't be surprised that I just could not choose. This is a Teapot Tuesday first! I decided to make a card inspired by the combination of these three teapots! Hey being indesive all of my life has

2. Some of you might remember, although its been almost 100 teaparties ago, the unfortunate predicament that Ladybug Lou-la-bella Rock-a-Fellah found herself in, almost 100 teaparties ago!! If you cannot remember, almost 100 teaparties ago, are old like me and need to refresh your memory, or if you have only recently become a Teapotter and did not participate almost 100 teaparties ago, here is a link to Ladybug Lou-la-bella Rock-a-fellah's predicament! Yes, of course, the teapotters saved her, don't fret! But almost 100 teaparties later, we must go back, she needs us again! Oh Poor Lou-la-bella, she was taken, was snatched, by a thug, a big bug, a big ole Bug Thug!! He was was ugly and yella, Oh Poor Lou-la-bella!

3. When you are Lady Lou-la-bella, a Rock-a-fellah, the wealthiest, richest, most famous, and a little eccentric lady (bug) ever, living with enough money to take care of any wants or needs you may have, your life is not perfect! Having been snatched, kidnapped and held by a big ole Thug Bug to be later rescued by Teapotters, you find yourself living your life suspicious of everyone and everything! Tired of seeing her friend down and depressed, worried and suspicious, Gidget, the Giggling Grasshopper Gardner whose own life is happy and free hopping happily in and out of the estate's flower gardens, decided to plant some happy little yellow daisies in the garden to cheer up Ladybug Lou-la-bella and attract some other Ladybug friends to keep her company!

Oh what have you done? Those daisiers are yellah! Remember the Thug, the big Yellah Bug? Remember the snatch, the kidnap, and catch?

4. Rut roh! Even though the Thug Bug was caught, almost 100 teaparties ago, these new yellah daisies have sent Ladybug Lou-la-bella Rock-a-fellah into a state of such fear! One look at that yellah brought back memories of that fellah, the thug, the big bug, that kept her tied up in the cella! Oh what should I do? This imaginary assault, is my stinkin' fault! She's thinks Thug Bugs are lurkin', my hoppin' around is not workin! Oh what should I do? Call a ladybug or two? I don't wanna pass the buck, but she needs some good luck! Call on a thousand ladybugs times 42, that is just what to do!

Ladybug, Ladybug, Fly Away here
Lou-la-bella is worried and in a great deal of fear!

Ladybug, Ladybug, Fly Away quick!
Gidget the Gardner is just worried sick!

DESTINATION STATION:

This week's destination is Fort Lupton, Colorado If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Julie? Julie (Julesanne) is a fellow teapotter who had some pretty extensive back surgery yesterday! Julie has always participated in sending her cards to the recipients of the Destination Station and this week, its Julie's turn to get some happy mail!

For more information as well as the address to mail your card to please visit Post #244 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.

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given me permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Friday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card.

If you dont' want to cheat, I am posting a sneak peak 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 sometimes during the weekend before the next Tuesday!
