Default MMTPT632 – September 1, 2020 - Make It Pop

Teapot Tuesday Challenge MMTPT632
Make It Pop

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: Jennifrann/Jen





CHALLENGE:
Make it pop! Pop something up on your card or use a bright pop of color. Maybe make a pop up card using one of our tutorials. Here are some ideas: 
PopOut Explosion Card
PopOut Card
StepPop-Up Card
TwistedPop-Up Card




CARD TYPE/THEME: Thinking of You, Hello - Please no Get Well cards




Nancy Williams, SCS nwilliams6, requested this week's tea party for her Dad, who suffers from pulmonary fibrosis. "Pop", as everyone calls him, struggles to breathe and is on a very high oxygen level. He's currently living with Nancy's sister, but will likely have to move to hospice to continue his care. Pop was an avid deer/raccoon hunter and raised champion "coon" dogs. He's a farmer who love Nascar and Alabama college football and sometimes wears a Bear Bryant hat (look it up, it's cool: black & white houndstooth). Pop also loves the outdoors, coffee and hot sauce (especially on beans and peas).





SEND CARDS TO:


Leavie "Pop" Hodge
3166 Country Rd 84
Billingsley, AL 36006-3406
USA


Here is my
card

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT632 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.

Time pressures and all that, my pops are very simple. I'd have loved time to revisit the pop and twist. And I was thinking that I could cut with a Bigz from a pop can .

Thanks so much for doing this!  He will love any card you can send.  Please just try to keep it super positive and fun and don't mention the negative or end or pain.  He has a good outlook on life and is taking this all so positively - we try to never dwell on the negative.  The last special treatment they gave him perked him up some and we are able to put hospice off a bit longer - it is inevitable but we are just enjoying the time.  Thanks to you all!!!!

wow - truly awesome cards.  Although I don't think I've ever done any of the 'challenge' type cards, I will get a card out to Pops tomorrow.

What are the odds that Nancy's Dad would be getting a card with her DTGD challenge? Some things are just meant to be.  Thank you Jen. Here are two pics.

Made my card for Nancy's dad. I am a huge Alabama Crimson Tide fan, too. Really enjoyed making a card for him.

Here’s my card for Nancy’s Pop.  I am also double dipping and put it in one of the DTGD challenges.  It will wing its way to Leavie the next few days.  Inside I have stamped an Aussie poem about the land and stamped Aussie animals on the envelope...hope it cheers him up.

I am so far behind but really wanted to get a card out to "Pop"  - I worked at Chile company out of Mexico for many years and I shipped several Railway tankers filled with Chipotle mash to Louisiana (McIlhenny's) every week so my card was a "no-brainer"

The idea for this card didn't gel in my tiny little head until this morning, and I didn't get a chance to finish it until tonight! Coffee for Pop will go in the mail tomorrow.

Oops, in my haste to get the card in the mail, I forgot to take a photo. Oh, well, it did include a funny story about alligators and skinny dipping. Hoping it brings a smile to Pops.

Sonja, I can't wait to see that card!  I am going to spend Monday with him so I will get to see the cards in person.  22 cards have arrived so far.  He is amazed that people in France, Ireland and all over America would make him cards and is amazed at how different they look. My Sister makes cards, but all she has really seen is mine, my Aunt's and hers so she was amazed at all the different styles too.  He had a bad week so she did too as the main caregiver.  Since his body isn't getting enough oxygen his mind is failing and that is heartbreaking and hard. He was still all smiles and very amazed

I mentioned this to my SIL.  She said that when we did the party for my MIL before she passed that my MIL kept the cards in a basket by her recliner and she would spend hours looking back the cards. That was several years ago, but my SIL still remembers and still feels the love.  

You all are such a sweet group of people.  These tea parties are fun but they make such a big impact on people.  They feel like a giant blanket of comfort and love.  I am so grateful to you all!  Hugz

Excellent, Nancy!!!!! So glad he's enjoying them but sad that he had a bad week...and your sister too. Harder on caregivers in some ways. When you said cards in a basket, it made me wish I'd thought of that for my Mom 4 years ago. Anniversary of her death is coming soon. Her final months were terrible and I'm sad I didn't think of it. I had taken a hiatus from SCS so wasn't creating much at the time but I did have a stash. Oh well, water under the bridge. Thinking of you all with love.

Nancy, I am so glad to hear that the cards are arriving and that they are bringing some cheer to your Pops.  Continued prayers for him, you, your sister and family for strength, comfort and peace. 

Jean, adding a prayer for your peace as well.  We all have "woulda, shoulda, coulda" about things we did or didn't do for our parents before they passed.  But, I think when we can look back with some objectivity, we know we did the very best we could with the situation we were handed.  And, I am sure everything you did, you did with love.  That's the absolute best thing we can do for anyone.  Hugs.

Thanks for your kind words. No regrets really. The horrible part was that my Mom was at home, but my youngest brother, her caretaker, died suddenly the May before she died. So into a facility she went and that was the beginning of the end. She knew she wasn't home and there was no comfort for her. Then she got pneumonia and then, because she was weak, she fell at the facility and dislocated her shoulder. Into hospice she went at the facility but they couldn't care for her properly. so we moved her into an inpatient hospice for her last day and a half and that was wonderful. She didn't know it but it was peaceful for us and we could just be her kids. Thanks.

So glad the last day and a half could be peaceful for the family. I am sure that meant so much then and even now.
