Default MMTPT598 - January 7, 2020 - Year of the Rat

TEAPOT TUESDAY CHALLENGE MMTPT598
Year of the Rat


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: jacqueline/Jacqueline

Happy New Year and WELCOME to our first Teapot Challenge of 2020! On behalf of the Teapot Tuesday TEAm, I'd like to thank each and every one of you for all of your wonderful contributions. We're looking forward to another creative and productive year. Not only is it a new year, we're starting a new decade! And, what better way to kick things off than with a celebration.

Although we already had our new year celebration, the Chinese (Lunar) New Year will be getting under way on January 25. 2020 is the Year of the Rat so how about a little rat education?

Were you born in a year of the rat? 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008

The rat's earth element is metal.

Lucky things for rats:
  • Colors: blue, gold, green
  • Numbers: 2, 3
  • Flowers: lily, African violet, valley lily
  • Directions of auspiciousness: southeast, northeast
  • Directions of wealth: southeast, east
  • Directions of love: west
CHALLENGE: Incorporate elements from above to create a card for any occasion/theme of your choosing. Here are some ideas: Make a birthday or thinking of you card for someone who was born in a rat year; use two or three elements (lucky numbers) in your design; use real or faux metal elements, incorporate blue, green and/or gold into your color scheme.

EPEC (extra points for extra cookies): Include an image or die cut of a rat or mouse on your card.

CARD TYPE/THEME: Teapotter's Choice

SEND CARDS TO: This week's destination is a sender's choice with a twist. You can send your card to whomever you choose but it must be someone that you have not seen in at least three months.

> My card: Hello Rat
> Quick Link to today’s
Teapot Tuesday Challenge Gallery: MMTPT598

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT598 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Do you know someone that could use some well wishes, encouragement or all around warm fuzzies? 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.

Great challenge to start the New Year Jacqueline. I actually needed to add to my Praying for You and Thinking of you stash. I was completely out and they go quickly when friends and family visit. We had family in from New York that we have not seen in a year and they took a few of these.

I've had a headcold the last couple of days, but I know exactly what stamp I want to use when I get up to my craft room. I just have to decide which lucky elements to include.

Home from work and finally able to do some crafting. My card will go to a friend in New Mexico - We usually get together at least 2 or 3 times a year to craft together . . . last year life got in the way and we never got to see each other. She will definitely appreciate this "ratty" card.

Jacqueline, I had so much fun with this challenge and luckily I had a tiny rat stamp! This card is going to a friend who had surgery. She could probably use the little cart on my card!

Not sure I'll get around to playing this week since I've been spending most of my free time doing a purge/reorganize, but this is a great challenge and like always, the gallery is full of wonderful cards!

Better late than never: MMTPT598 Fear Not Rat

It was so grey and overcast this morning that I wasn't even sure I'd get a daylight photo after work - but the rat brought me luck .

WT774 Lucky 40 is for a celebration, my son's 40th birthday. Nope, not the Year of the Rat. I do have lots of blue and faux metal, 2 main images and 3 vellum elements. Thanks for the fun challenge, Jacqueline.

I made this card for a friend who has had lots of illness in her family lately. I wanted to make something a bit "goofy" to cheer her up. Here's my card:

I've got another friend out of commission so I made different version of the same stamp image (the mouse). Thank you all for your nice comments on the I card previously posted for Sharon, I'll be dropping by her house today and I'll be sure to relay all who wished her well via your awesome posts. Thank you so much for everything.
