A Wild Party for Sure......Mardi Gras and the Tea Party Ladies


To read the WHOLE story you will have to go here on SCS or to the Muddermark's blog.

The Tea Partiers are heading to Mardi Gras.  This celebration often involves costumes, feathers, boas, beads, and all kinds of dazzling party fare.  Well, I dug out my 'bestest' feathery hat to wear.  I also dressed up in purples and greens, two of the colors we were to use today.....very celebratory colors.  I did have some King's cake to share, but I shared it along the way and so can't show it to you here......and I had a piece or two as well....!!!  Please be sure to check out how the other Tea Partiers are celebrating by going to the Mothermark Tea Party Tuesday gallery for this week on SCS.

I also created a second card to show the celebration later in the day.......and wow....was it ever getting wild!!  We had by then taken off our fancy hats, clothes, and started to dance around the fire.  We were enjoying the setting of the sun and waiting for the nightime festivities to begin.......and we switched from tea to something a bit more festive as well......lol!!!!

With the amount of snow we have here my feather boa and clothing is staying on thank you! I declare you must have every stamp under the sun. Neat cards, hard to decide which I like better, but probably card one, because I am going to stay prim and proper regardless of what is going on with the beads.
