Buzzin By the Tea Party

Git yer buzzer buzzin,
Head out on the highway.
Lookin’ fer adventure
In whatever comes our way

Born to be wild
No, we are not mild
Our stings are deadly
If not treated readily

Hoooooowdeeeee!!! Queen Beatrice (that’s her with the red and gold crown and sparkly gold wings) is on her way with her entire entourage of hot honeys (hive and all) to Boonesville, Mississippi today for some tea, honey, and, hopefully, a little match makin’ with Uncle Beeford Bumble’s boy bees. Truth be told, I think Uncle Beeford is a few bees short in his beard and is up to some wiley tricks, but my girls are quite buzzin' saavy and know how to take care of themselves.

What? You wanna know why they have red noses? Well, it seems some of the other tea partiers (names will not be mentioned to protect those with innocent-looking faces) stopped at Queen Beatrice's hive the night before for a little hive-gaitin' party and were dippin' into the sauce that Uncle Beeford sent to da Muddermark. This is his own special sauce from his distillery in Boonesville, Mississippi. Needless to say, they got a little schnockered before take off.

So grab your bees, your honey, your netting, and whatever else you want to bring to the shindig tea party in Boonesville today cuz we are gonna have a rootin’ tootin’ good time! If ya’ll need more details as to the full story and/or what you need to do to participate, you kin check it out on da Muddermark’s blog. If yer uploadin' her buzzin' creations to Splitcoaststampers, be sure to use keyword MMTPT59! I hope to see you there!

Now, for those interested, here are details behind the making of this card:

The buzzin by beauty bees were colored with Copic markers. Each precious bee was hand cut and adhered to their hive. Their buzzin' hive was shaped with a Coluzzle oval cutter and scored with a Scor Pal. Color and shading were added by sponging the various colors with daubers and watercoloring with SU reinkers and watercolor brush.

Cardstock: Summer Sun, Black, Whisper White, Real Red
Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black, Summer Sun, Marigold Morning, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Craft White, Real Red
