1. Welcome to Teapot Tuesday #79! Whew! Do you guys remember when we went to California and brought all of our California Cow wannabe's to try out. And you know Alicia won right? Yah, that's right, my cow won! You might *think* your cow won but I am here to tell you that MY cow won! Yep, Alicia won! Okay, so I know what you're gonna say. You're gonna say, so what's your point?
2. Well, since Alicia has been a California cow, she has become extremely successful, dinner at the White House, sold out How to be Successful lectures, appearances on Ophra, Larry King, and Jay Leno, a bew book contract for the story of her life, and she is even negotiating for the SuperBowl half time gig! Her brother Curt misses her so! It's no surprise that the only way he can see her is to travel to California. He is in awe of her new life style and he's having the time of his life! The highlight of his visit has been meeting Morty the Magnificent, a Hollywood Stunt Cow! He's highly paid ($42,000 a stunt!), he's extremely successful and in huge demand! He's a little worried about keeping up with his schedule so he's decided to take Curt under his wing and show him the ropes! He thinks Curt will be a fine, up and coming, Hollywood Stunt Cow and maybe take a little load off!
3. Well Curt, that squirt, thinks he's all that! He's getting way too over confident. He's jumping through barns on fire, doing flips off hay stacks, and hanging with the PBR bulls in the stock yard just to learn *the attitude*! He's decided he's ready for the big time and he accepted a dangerous stunt despite Alicia's concern! Well, he jumped over the moon and he's so little he got stuck in the middle! Eeeekkkk!
4. So here's the plan Johan. Johan is the special effects coordinator and he is just brutal when it comes to the schedule! We're headed to Hollywood girls, to either get Curt to listen to Alicia and consider a different career or listen to Morty the Magnificent and stick with his Hollywood Stunt Cow dreams. You be the judge, ya think he's too little? Is that why he's stuck in the middle?
Our job is to encourage him or show him a new career. Let's show him how to buff up, get physical, bring on the tuff guy, stunt guy image or show him a career more suitable to his puny little fragile body. Maybe a florist working with beautiful flowers, a fashion designer specializing in black and white prints, maybe play a fiddle (hey, diddle, diddle!) in a country band! If you can't quite make up your mind which career path Curt should take, just bring something to calm down Johan, maybe a present or some wine or something!! He's getting a little irritated!
Oh and we getta try Alicia's new line of special teas! Hey, you don't think we are doing this stuff for nuttin' do you?
5. When your card is complete, show us a picture by posting a link to it in the comment section here. If you are uploading it to your SCS gallery, post the link here and use MMTPT79 in keywords so we can easily view everyone's card.

I am not only amazed at your card creations, but at your amazing imagination! I am off to sleep on this one and hopefully will come up with something tomorrow! Thanks Cindy for the beginnings of another fun tea party!

I just dunno about this whole teaparty experience. You girls are way too expert at telling tall tails and backing them up with magificent cards. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, I may have broken off more than I can chew with my decision last week to join. Anyway, I'll just have to push ahead and not worry about making a card that looks as fabulous as this, Cindy!
No laughing, okay? This is just as sweet as the story that goes with it. Fabulous card.

He doesn't look like that much of a squirt to me.
Are you sure he's a he - bit hard to tell the way he's landed sprawled in the middle of the moon?
Your moon is fantastic - even if the teapot handle makes me see a goldfish. OK, it's too early in the morning.
And what do I see about Anne Ryan denying that she's capable of spinning a yarn!!

Well this is some story.. but I guess there is only one place to start and that is in the barnyard!!!! Oh well.. this getting caught in the middle stuff is really weird... aren't we all caught in the middle of "things" ??? Oh dear... to keep up with you Cindy is almost enough to send fear into the middle of all of us... snort, snort...
I will have to see about this one... Think, ponder ponder and then think some... okay...
