This card is for this week's Midnight Madness challenge & last week's Teapot Tuesday Challenge.
Here's the story:
- Cindy (mothermark) was throwing a party in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Well, dowin har in Texas, y'all, we lack to do thins a li'l slower than them thar Looziannes. (translation: down here in Texas you all, we like to do things a little slower than those Louisianans?) Besides, Mimo is a sweet little boy. He isn't up to all the wild partying that goes on.
- Mimo loves his sweet Mommy and when he saw the colors and glitter of Mardi Gras he thought, "My mommy would love a pretty purple flower." He put on his green jeans. His mommy had told him of a show on TV when she was his age with a man named Mr. Green Jeans. He thinks she made it up to make him like green jeans, but plays along. He picked the prettiest purple flower he could find and he sprinkled it with glitter for his dear mommy. His yellow clogs and sweet blond hair add the touch of gold. I think she will love this flower. What mommy doesn't love flowers from their little angels?
- While many who celebrate Mardi Gras give up something for the season of Lent like candy or TV, Mimo has decided to give up something that will please his mommy. He is not going to pick on his sister Mimosa (you saw her on the Valentine cards) all the way til Easter. Who knows? Maybe he will find out that getting along with his sister makes life so much happier and will stick with it even after Easter! Now THAT would make his mommy just beam!
I used Mimo from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, copics, PTI buttons, circle embellishments from my friend Karen, glitter, 2-way glue, ribbon, crop-o-dile & a bunch of paper from my stash!
Thanks for stopping by!
PS, last week Cindy named me the "Git 'er done girl" so I HAD to make a card. She's good at making you do that, I think! LOL! I love Cindy! I've got one taking root in my head for this week, before next week starts!
