Default MMTPT477~September 12, 2017~On Dasher, On Dancer...Is That a Tractor?

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #477



On Dasher, On Dancer....Is That a Tractor?

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: Well, yes it just might be a tractor. This here is farm country and them fancy sleds just get stuck in the mud. Ahem.....back to the story:

2: What on earth is that batty ol' woman up to now? (and no they aren't talking about me this time) Everyone in town is talking about Miss MandaLou more than usual this week. She has always been a bit odd but seriously!! Putting up her Christmas decorations and it is still September. Did she forget about Halloween???? If she did, then we better call the Dr. because something is seriously wrong with MandaLou, cuz there is no one likes Halloween decorating more than she does.

3: But Miss MandaLou just keeps on amidst their questions and twittering. Putting up her Christmas tree, lights on the house and pulling the old tractor around to the front to put lights on it too. She knows that they think she is batty so she doesn't really care. She has fun and she's gonna have even more fun when she throws a HUGE surprise party this week end.

4: After she has everything in place, she delivers invitations to all the little people in town inviting them to a special Christmas party and has lots of little gifts and treats lined up. She is having so much fun and all the little ones are getting excited. See they all know what the big people don't: you can celebrate any ol' time you want to and sometimes it's more fun that way.



Challenge Translation:

Bring some Christmas Cheer, some trees, decorations, presents, lights; especially lights. We need to get the Christmas spirit flowing

Destination STation:

This week the Teaparty bus is headed to little bitty Lebo Ks. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Christian. He was brought to my attention by my cousin.


to find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post 582 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 MMTPT477 challenge gallery


Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT477 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.

Default So Very Loved

A little too grown up for a little boy, but it's what came out of me to offer comfort.

This story about Christian really touched my heart a lot because my cousin went through this experience. It is so hard. Here is my Christmas card for Christian: Frosty Warm Wishes by Art Deco Diva - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers.
