When I came to upload my card, I read da Muddermark’s story for Teapot Tuesday that we’re actually going to the Galapogos Islands in South America where we'll be riding giant tortoises and that we’re to bring shoes for Flat Footed Booby Ruby (where does da Mudder come up with these names???). I was so upset with Bertie that I just wanted to throw my grapes away!! However, Bertie was very contrite and apologetic. She’s really gone out of her way to try to calm me down. She told me that it’s actually a good thing that Booby Ruby is flat footed because her feet won’t fit in all those shoes the other tea partiers are bringing anyway and, furthermore, Booby Ruby’s flat feet will be perfect for smooshing grapes for wine! Bertie wanted to make it even more fun for us, so we took grape smooshing lessons with Lucy in Italy. You can see Bertie here in the vat with Lucy:
We had so much fun making that video with Lucy!
Now, we’re off to the Galapogos Islands to join the other tea partiers, riding giant tortoises and flingin’ grapes (and shoes) today! We hope you’ll come join us!
See that button covered in fine yarn in the upper left corner? It is a button I discovered in an old sewing basket that had belonged to my mother-in-law. I found the basket in my closet. This part of my card is for an Inspiration challenge on Stamp TV. I added a purple rhinestone to the center of it.
After I colored and cut out my grapes, I stamped the image in Versamark and heat embossed with Glassy Glaze for a richer, shinier color.
