4 Attachment(s)
Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and challenge #252

Old MacStamper Had a Farm

Old MacStamper had a farm, oh indeed he did.
And with a moo, moo here, a quack quack there and all the baas and all the oinks, oh what a din, oh what a cacophony. Pass the earplugs, please!

No wonder theyíre so noisy Ė theyíre all so hungry; and when they see Old MacStamper coming along theyíre hoping he has some food for them, (and we all know that the loudest ones get the most attention!).

Old MacStamper is hoping he has enough food for them, too! I know that over here, with a bad summer last year and a long hard winter, the farmers have been struggling to find enough feed to see them through till the grass is growing again, and I believe itís the same in parts of the States too. Even for those who can afford to buy it in, itís still hard to find. When I was doing some research for this, I even read of an Iowa farmer who had developed a sawdust based feed.

We can help Old MacStamper! Teapotters to the rescue again!!

Challenge Translation:

Donít bring along too many farm animals Ė a couple of Curtís cousins or a ewe or two is fine but donít bring a whole herd or flock of anything because we surely donít have enough to feed that many. But to really help out, we also need to bring something for the animals to eat. Long, lush luxurious grass, a rolling prairie, a bale of hay, some maize, some marigolds, swedes or turnips, some carrots for a tasty snackÖI think, girls, that we'll pass on the sawdust, though!

* STOP PRESS!! I've just got back from a holiday in Greece, and I read that the farmers there sometimes use prickly pears as extra cattle feed, once they burn the prickles off. So if anybody had a prickly pear for MMTPT240, please feel free to use it again ;) .

Destination Station:

This week our destination is each other. Itís Tickle a Teapotter week, where we can have a little (or a lot) of fun and surprise one of our own.

Can't find the gallery link to view all the cards. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!!!!!

gabalot 06-01-2013 12:02 AM

Hi Mary! Here's a direct link to the MMTPT252 gallery:

mmtpt252 - Homemade Cards, Rubber Stamp Art, & Paper Crafts - Splitcoaststampers.com

If you ever want to look in any gallery and you can't find a posted, direct link in the thread, just go to the "Gallery" tab on the top right of any page, then on the left side under "Search" type in the challenge code, for example MMTPT252, hit "go" and it should come right up. Also, if you're looking for a particular item or subject, you can search the galleries for it there, as well. There are other ways but I think this is the easiest and quickest.

Hugs, Gabby

P.S. I'm sending this as a PM, too ... just in case you don't come back and see it here. :)

susie australia 06-01-2013 12:04 AM

Hi Mary, I couldn't find it either, so i just clicked on MMTPT252 in the key words of my own card, that took me to the gallery. Hope that helps.

susie australia 06-01-2013 12:08 AM

Hello there Gabby, I think you and I were replying to Mary at the same time. Thanks for the tip, I did not know that. xx
