Default MMTPT309 July 1, 2014 ~ Girls Can Be So Witty – and Oh, Pink is Pretty! ~

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #309



Girls Can Be So Witty – and Oh, Pink is Pretty!


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. Penelope Perkins is as girly a girl as you would ever meet. She loved frilly dresses and dolls and tiaras and Minnie Mouse. Penelope could play house or princess or teaparty for hours. Her favorite color of course is pink.

2. Although there are 42,000 children in her hometown of Mannville, Penelope is the only girl! In every home, there are baseball bats and wrestling mats, frogs and snails and puppydog tails. Swingsets and sandboxes, mudpuddles and leaf piles are the destinations of choice for playtime. Bugs and reptiles are treasures to be shared.

3. How it happens I’ll never know, but little boys always seems to come to the conclusion that girls have cooties. The boys of Mannville decided to open a chapter of the He Man Woman Haters Club. They outlawed everything that a sweet little girl might love…no frills, no rhinestones, no teaparties and no pink!!

4. Poor Penelope – she has always wished for a little girl BFF but was content to pretend. As long as she could dress her teddy bears in gingham and lace, or don a frilly frock she was happy. But now she was a kiddie criminal if she did. Sobbing, Penelope placed all of her dainty pink clothing away. How could those boys be so unfair? Boys don’t be unlucky, for girls are not yucky. Girls can be so witty – and oh, pink is pretty!

Teapotters, you know just what to do…send in the girl power!!! We need frilly, we need lace, but most of all, we need pink!! Pink fabric, pink papers, pink twine and pink ink…whatever you can find that would tickle a little girl – well, tickle her pink!

If you need some additional inspiration here is a song for you:


CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:

Bring the sweetest, girlyest pinkest cards that you can come up with!!

EPEC ~ (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)
Bring a princess - Disney or other - or Minnie Mouse...but no bugs or it is the back door for you!!

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is Newton, KS. If you would like a destination for your card, how about little Finley? Finley's parents are friends of our very own Sheri!!!

To find out the details as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit Post #412 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!


Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT309 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!

This is my first time participating in this challenge, and I already love it! Hope to do this as often as I can. My card turned out looking like an Easter card (unintended), but I was thinking a shaker card would be fun for a 3 year old to receive. Thank you for this challenge, it does one's heart good.

Hello, I am posting for the FIRST TIME in a challenge.
I would love to send this card, but I don't know where to?

My fish is PINK, she is sparkly too. Hard to see in the photo.

I'm still a little rusty with this tread. It took me a while to find the destination.

I haven't played in a Teapot challenge for awhile, but when I read Finley's story, I knew I had the perfect card to send to her. Here's the link to my gallery.
