Default MMTPT301~May 6, 2014~Roses are Red, Violets are Blue

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #301


Roses are Red, Violets are Blue



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!


The Rest of the Story:

1: Once a year in Las Vegas there is a gathering of florists and flower lovers like you've never seen. All of them competing with the wildest and most outrageous arrangements they can dream up to get the attention of the panel of judges. To be invited to show at this prestigeous event is quite an honor indeed. Miss Betty Lou never fails to impress with her original and somewhat unorthadox works of art.

2: However, this yr Miss Betty Lou has been having some health problems and has had to hire some help to get ourders out and keep the shop running so she can concentrate on her arrangement for the show. It has been a trying time to be sure and at times Miss Betty Lou isn't sure it was worth it, this gal Sally may be artistic but she is so slow that nothing seems to get done in a timely fashion. And Miss Betty Lou has had to correct many a creation before it goes out the door.

3: So it is with with trepidation that she sends Sally ahead to vegas with a list of supplies to find. Miss Betty Lou will come up in another day and put the finishing touches on the arrangement.

4: When Miss Betty Lou arrives at the prep area and finally finds her assistant, she is totally dismayed. The girl has gotten it all wrong!! Well, in all honesty she did get the red roses right but snapdragons instead of violets, statice instead of baby's breath....OH NO!! what am I going to do now, wonders Miss Betty Lou. It's to late to go find the right flowers now. As she paces back and forth, and back and forth trying to come up with a new plan, Sally calmly arranges the flowers in a tall vase and ends up with a wonderful red, white, and blue creation that is almost 3 feet tall and about as wide. It is one massive display of patriotic pride sure to grab attention. Miss Betty Lou just stares aghast at this monstrously huge display and totally is at a loss for words. She can just see her reputation going down the tubes, and is actually looking for a way to sneak out of the arena when the judges head around the corner and march down the row right towards them.

5: "Well, it certainly is large" said one of the other entrants. "Yes, and bright" said another. "But, what were they thinking, putting snapdragons with roses?" "Indeed". Somewhere behind them, they could hear someone state "why, I think I'll do that sometime, the wild with the cultured look y'know" It's all about the contrast". Pretty soon the murmerings were growing louder and louder and Miss Betty Lou found herself the center of attention and not sure where all these "teapotter ladies" were coming from and why they were here but they were sure getting everyone stirred up.

Challenge Translation:

Bring flowers in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Lots of color and bright cheery verses to brighten up the day. No arrangements taller than the judges or you will have to come in the service entrance

EPEC=extra points for extra credit:

Add some encouraging scripture for healing.


Destination Station:

This week our cards are going to Las Vegas. If you want a destination for yuor cards, how about sending them to Betty. She was brought to our attention by SCSr zizzie78 who knows Betty from church.

to find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post #405 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 a quick link to MMTPT301 gallery

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT301 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? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.


Thank you from zizzie78 and me

I won't be able to participate this week due to surgery and recuperation taking longer than I had hoped. I did call the doctor and he's going to see me this morning instead of having to wait until Thursday. The good news is that I've already sent a card to Betty when I read about her in another post, probably a week or so ago!

My tickle went postal today; I'll be stamping the sentiment for the inside of this card for Betty when I'm doing a gallery mod shift later tonight, and it will go in the mail tomorrow.
MMTPT301 ...and Daffodils are Yellow


ETA - I see that this is at least the third time I've brought him along to a tea-party! Tried and trusted

I get into a bit of a flap when we don't get cheater emails, so no stair step card this week, but I had lots of fun making this mixed media card for Betty.
