MMTPT63: Saving Ladybug Lou-La-Bella Rock-a-Fella!
1 Attachment(s)

This is my story!

Ladybug, Ladybug, Ladybug Lou-la-Bella,
She's rich and she's powerful, an original Rock-a-Fella!

She's been taken, been snatched, Oh, poor Lou-la-Bella!
By a thug, a big bug, he's ugly and yella!

Her mom is so worried, will he just try to sella?
She's written a note, just to tell Lou-la-Bella...

Don't worry, sweat pea, I'll have a big tea!
Invite lotsa friends, save the day, you will see!

Attention All Ladybugs! You're Invited to Tea!
Your trip will be free! A reward you could see!

We'll have biscuits and triscuits, cookies and cakes!
Homemade honey and candy, at much as it takes!

And when you're all full, so happy and fat,
We'll save Lou-la-Bella, squish that thug, Ooh that RAT!

1. Bring your ladybugs girls! We're headed to a Country Estate in New York to save Ladybug Lou-la-Bella from the clutches of a bug thug! We've been given a mission and should we decide to accept it (after tea and treats!) the more ladybugs that show up the better chance we have to over power this Bug Thug! Ladybug Lou-la-Bella Rock-a-Fella has boo-koo muhla and just might reward us generously! Be brave, but be bad, and believe me be beautiful, cuz this ole Bug Thug just might be a ladybugizer!

2. Are you wondering why we aren't saving Ladybug Lou-la-Bella first? Well, this is a tea-party! Besides, the teapotters work better energized before a big job!

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT63 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Here is a link to my Teapot Tuesday #63 card.
Here is a link to the MMTPT63 challenge gallery and Our Adventures in Saving Ladybug Lou-la-Bella Rock-a-Fella!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? I am posting a sneak peak (tea peak) on my blog each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. Be sneaky and get a jump on the other tea-potters! Snort!

If you are confused about these challenge, see Post #1 of this thread for more information as well as a directory to individual challenges within the thread!

I wrote what I thought was a clever story, but the upload engine didn't seem to like it, so I had to reload. Now I'm too tired to rewrite it and just sent Mr. Bumble a "wish you were here" greeting.

Mothermark.... I need to find the rest of the teapot challenges on your blog, right?

Hi Garnet!

Yes, here is a link to all of the teapot challenges. You should just be able to scroll down from page to page to see them all.


Don't ya just hate it when you write a big story and then it doesn't go? I have learned to copy it before I hit send so that if something doesn't happen, I can re-paste it in! Happened to me more than once!

Off to see what you did in the islands! Snort!

MM, your comment about tulips stuck in my head. For some reason I thought there were tulips hidden above the lady bugs. Oops. I think I'm gonna' miss the mark again this week. Sigh. It's too late to start another one, so my card may be for a future tea party, but posted for this one. Yikes!

Back door for me again this week ... but then again, there sure was a lot of fun at the back door last week!

Hey, M! How did you know the Bug Thug is hiding in a patch of tulips???? Once we have our tea, those tulips might just be history as our troups of ladybugs emerge on this yella bug thug!!!

Remember, there are no rules.....if you were moved to tulips, so be it! Snort! You are a good back-door-er! Snort! You notice i spend a lot of time there!

jojot 09-08-2009 05:44 AM

here is mine.......

Ladybugs and Friend

thanks for looking....will be back later to check things out....

Stamp Muse 09-08-2009 06:53 AM

Happy day everyone! There's a ladybug hiding in the flower.


I'll be back to comment later today. Have a wonderful!

cmsuto 09-08-2009 07:31 AM

Hi everyone! Here is my card for the tea party! I brought along a couple of ladybugs to help us save Lou-La-Bella!

etsdas 09-08-2009 09:18 AM

I brought a few lady bugs but also a very smug looking turtle. Wonder what she knows?


MariLynn 09-08-2009 09:24 AM

I have had my lady bug card done for quite awhile now, but I am still waiting...been over an hour now to be approved! When it is approved I'll be back....

MariLynn 09-08-2009 10:25 AM

2 1/2 hrs. and still waiting to be approved... Trying to keep my frustration at bay.

MariLynn 09-08-2009 11:09 AM

Anyone else having trouble? I am getting paranoid and think it is just me... What I really think is the thug of a bug is blocking my card because he is getting scared.

MariLynn 09-08-2009 01:07 PM

AAAAARGHHH still not showing up in the gallery after 5 hrs. I am going insane.

Stamp Muse 09-08-2009 01:36 PM

Well, I'll be anxious along with you as I CANNOT wait to see your newest creation, MariLynn!

Wish I could be more helpful on the upload thing, but I uploaded early this morning West Coast time with no troubles. Although, I did have to upload multiple times this weekend with my cards for them to finally go through. It's possible that SCS may still be working out bugs from the new servers. Wouldn't want to be them!

MariLynn 09-08-2009 01:40 PM

See... I knew it was BUGS that were causing the problems!!!

MariLynn 09-08-2009 02:06 PM

I guess better late than never... Here is my lady bug card.

artystamper 09-08-2009 04:25 PM

My little piece of the Ladybug army is on the way to assist in the rescue!!! http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=93535

ardodd 09-08-2009 05:08 PM

MariLynn, I feel your pain! Don't know what is going on, but I definitely think today's tea party bugs got into the system! I posted a second card hours ago,and it still isn't in the gallery. So glad yours finally posted, as it is too cute!

diane617 09-08-2009 06:05 PM

I had to work today, but still got 2 challenges into one card. I was worried when I saw the color challenge, because there was no red in it. But I looked thru my DP supply and found some purple ladybugs
Here's my Ladybug Teaparty
Thanks Cindy for a neat TPT challenge

Mothermark 09-08-2009 07:09 PM

Now I don't feel like I was losing my mind! I was commenting all in a row and Marilynn, you and Anne cards snuck in behind me! I thought I was going crazy!!! It's not my bugs causing the problems! Giggle!

Mothermark 09-08-2009 07:10 PM

I just have to share this fun little poem that Marilynn left on my teapot card today! It says it all!

Loulabella, do not fear.
The teapartiers are here.
We have rescued froggies and rescued snails.
We have solved clues and made cards noone could mail.
We have caught fish,
Helped cows fulfill their wish.
We have had parties catered by cats.
We've had garden parties where we needed hats.
We've been to London to visit the Queen
and almost everywhere else between.
I know that we can come and rescue you...
Just watch out for that Giant SHOE...........

Mothermark 09-08-2009 07:11 PM

Diane...good job working AND attending a tea party! hee! YOu go girl!

pidgesmom 09-08-2009 08:06 PM

It's chaos here today -my bathroom's being demolished and it was the first day back at school for the staff (who are very needy on the first day!). But, despite not being able to find the stamp that I wanted to use (somebody tell me that this happens to other people too please!) here's what I did.

Mothermark 09-09-2009 03:17 AM

That happens to me! That happens to me! Although, can't say that I have ever ordered 800 dozen pencils! Snort! Giggle!

GarnetJ 09-09-2009 09:37 AM

Lorraine... That happens to me!!!

GarnetJ 09-09-2009 10:02 AM

Swat Team
I stayed up too late last night and cannot come up with a story. So let's just say that this ladybug is not only coming for the party, she is Lieutenant of the SWAT team. her weapon against the Thug Bug is her enormous size. "Out'a my way you thugs. I don't have time for any nonsense."

Two views:
Ladybug w/wings open

I had made a bunch of ladybug cards, long, long time ago. So when this challenge came up, pretty much made the same card, but bigger. Started with a 5" circle instead of 4".

RJP111 09-09-2009 11:11 AM

Well, where have I been? I saw this challenge thread yesterday and made a card last night. It took me awhile to even find a ladybug stamp - I finally found one in an old CTMH set that was in the rummage sale bin!

It got to be late and I didn't take a cpic of my card yet. When I get home from work this evening, I'll snap a pic & upload it.

Oh yeah! I subscribed to both this thread and Mothermark's blog. :D

Update: Here is my ladybug card. This was fun!

You are HILARIOUS! And I loved your bug card!

stampingwriter 09-09-2009 03:10 PM

My delegation of ladybugs is a day late, but they are on their way. They dressed up for the occasion -- here's the card.

GarnetJ 09-09-2009 08:39 PM

I had no idea...

... no idea that so many gals would like my big ladybug. Here are the instructions for the smaller one I made years ago. She is in my gallery somewhere and will fit in an A2 envelope.

The BIG ladybug I made on Tuesday needs a 5x7 envelope.

foxy67 09-10-2009 06:52 AM

This has been so much fun Cindy, and WOW!! what a bunch of fantastic cards hey! Here is my Lula Bella.

~CA~ 09-10-2009 07:16 AM

I'm hoping two more ladybugs might help! I have to go now, but I'll comment later.

lisa lara 09-10-2009 08:44 AM

Hi Cindy, Hi Fellow Teapartiers,
I am just arriving. Hope there are still treats and plenty of company. Is there someone who is willing to scoot over? Here is my sweet friendly lady bug:http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...5326?&cat=8593 (Just one)

Mothermark 09-10-2009 05:35 PM

Thanks Garnet for the instructions..how nice of you!

Hey all you late comers...your cards rocked! Late or early, its so fun to see what you all come up with! Giggle! This was fun, all these ladybugs rocked!

Mothermark 09-10-2009 05:36 PM

Hey guys.....

I just posted the sneak peak on my blog!!!!
Check it out....Giggle!

Maureen Vollaro 09-10-2009 09:17 PM

Oh boy a basket! Hmmm...

Sorry I haven't gotten to making comments this week.. a bit hectic with the kids back to school and my daughter's birthday (9-11) this week! yikes! But I did see everyone''s beautiful cards!

GarnetJ 09-10-2009 09:25 PM

I think the problem with Mothermark's basket has something to do with a critter with BIG feet. Perhaps it's a bear?

I love riddles... and that's just what this sneak peek is.

Looks like paw prints on that basket. Funny thing, Cindy, you collect teapots, and I collect baskets! Maybe I'll just take a picture of one and make a card out of that! LOL! (BTW, I collect angels too.)

Mothermark 09-11-2009 11:41 AM

No problem Maureen.....we know how LIFE gets in the way of our fun! Snort!

Garnet.....my mouth is sealed! and that doesn't happen too often!

Hi Lisa! So good to see you!!!

CarrollAnn.......YOU could pretty much make an awesome card out of anything! Including a picture of a basket!

sleepyinseattle 09-13-2009 06:11 PM

Here is my vision of Lady Lou-la-bella :)

Mothermark 09-14-2009 05:59 AM

OMG! The lady bug cards that came out of this challenge are the cutest ever! If you all have not checked the lady bug gallery recently, do it! Its well worth the visit! Joanne your card is so elegant....Did not realize Ladybug Lou-la-Bella was so beautiful, know wonder she got kidnap-ed! Hee!

Okay and just in case these don't get into the SCS gallery, check these two out....they are from Deb (Deb Down Under) on her blog! They just rock!


Mothermark 09-14-2009 05:59 AM

See you tommorrow....new location, new dilema! Giggle!
