Default MMTPT689 Sending Smiles-(10/5/2021)

Teapot Tuesday Challenge MMTPT689


Sending Smiles


Anyone is welcome to play in the weekly Teapot Challenge - the more, the merrier! You automatically become a “TEApotter” the first time you play. Where will you find inspiration? Will it be from the teapot? The destination location? Something of the recipient? Or could it be from the challenge itself? Remember, sending your card to the listed guest of honor is 100% voluntary - it's not a requirement but will be very well appreciated. Just have fun!

This week's challenge hostess is: peeps321/Polly


CHALLENGE: Let's play with words this week! Since we want our recipient to smile use at least 4 letters in the word SMILE when you are making your card. For example: S-stamps, square, I-ink, image, etc


CARD TYPE/THEME: Thinking of You, Hi/Hello, Feel Better, Miss You


SCS JRHolbrook, aka Judy, aka Gracie, has requested this week’s teaparty for her sweet father-in-law, Rex. Rex entered an assisted living facility earlier this year at 95 years old. He has bone cancer and is in a wheelchair now, but was in his own home mowing grass and shoveling snow at 94! Recently, one of the workers at the facility tested positive for COVID, so the residents are quarantined to their rooms and cannot have any visitors. Poor Rex is very lonesome because he loves to chat with his "lady friends" at the home. He also loves to sit outside; however, they’re only allowing one person at a time on the front porch. Sounds like Rex is quite the ladies man - imagine the thrill he’ll get when the cards start pouring in from ladies all over the country/world. Rex loves the outdoors and used to have a farm and a truck.


SEND CARDS TO:
Rex Holbrook
4510 Gateway Dr.
Eau Claire, WI 54701
USA

My card: MMTPT689 Beauty of Nature by peeps321 at Splitcoaststampers

Quick Link to today’s Teapot Tuesday Challenge Gallery: Gallery at Splitcoaststampers

Be sure to you use Gallery at Splitcoaststampersin your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

KEYWORD is MMTPT689

Do you know someone that could use some well wishes, encouragement or all around warm fuzzies? Does someone you know have a special occasion or milestone coming up? Consider nominating them as a guest of honor (a.k.a. destination station) for an upcoming tea party. Send your request to jacqueline via PM or e-mail [email protected]. Include SCS Teaparty Request in the subject line.

Here's mine. Gave me a chance to try out an ef for yesterday's Technique challenge. I have only one teeny little tractor stamp in my Whippersnapper Farm Fresh set, so I went with a pick-up truck instead .

I'm just starting to comment on all the beautiful cards for Rex! Thanks so much ladies! We saw him yesterday and the quarantine has been lifted. I told him to expect to receive some cards soon and he said that he'll love that and grinned from ear to ear. He's going to display them on his table and show all the ladies at the assisted living home. He's the only man there, so he has lots of admirers! We teased him and said, since he was overseas in the Army, he can tell them that he has women all over the world! Rex is so excited and looking forward to all the happy mail! Huge hugs to all of you!!!

I have to add one more thing about Rex, because he so deserves all the attention he's getting now. He took care of his wife of 69 years at home for many years, feeding and bathing her. She passed away at 91 from Alzheimers 3 years ago. Amazing man at 95!

This card is for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge and will go to Rex. He likes the outdoors and needs a little pick me up so I hope this puts a smile on his face. I used "S"tamps, "M"ountains, "I"nk, "L"ines in the frame and a woodgrain "E"mbossing folder to help with the SMILE TFL

Here's mine. MMTPT689-smile by vickydee at Splitcoaststampers

I wondered where the tractor and farm theme came in. "How does everyone know he was a farmer", I thought. Apparently I didn't read all the way to the end . My bad

Default Hello

I am not sure if Rex had any trucks like this on his farm, but it would be a scene at the farm where my mom grew up : ) Hope he enjoys it!

I don't think I have ever posted a card using this truck die set. I've used it a lot, but not for a challenge. My card MMTPT689 Truckload of Love by casep at Splitcoaststampers

S= shiny, sky. shimmer, M-mirrors, L=license plate (the hello part in the set is a license plate.)
