Barney's Late to the Tea Party

Barney really wishes he had gotten into this pic-a-nic basket before all the tea partiers emptied the contents. All he has left now is some scraps of honey left at the bottom of the jar.

Imagine, real life (nightmare work project) intruded on my stamping time this week. I am soooo late to the tea party its almost time for another one, but I've never been to Mississippi so I had to join in.

Poor Barney is going to overheat. Isn't it awfully warm for all that fur that far south? Wonder where we're going to go this week!

In addition to Teapot Tuesday, another challenge I enjoy that ALSO is listed on Tuesdays is Priscilla Styles Midnight Madness sketch challenges. Here the different elements of my card include the handle of the pic-a-nic basket in green gingham with some nice button closures. Barney is inside the basket eating his honey and there are two bees buzzing hopefully just outside wondering if there will be a smackerel left for them. I used dew drops for the flowers' center, they kind of looked like drops of honey to me. Thanks for looking.

Fun to read! At first when I read the title I thought we were going to see a card with a purple dinosaur! ;)

Love your details with the buttons and the dew drops! Yummy honey!
