Bring Your Daisies by Three!

Ain't she sweet?
Just a-hoppin' down the street
Bringin' daisies by three
Then we'll all have some tea!

If my little ditty doesn't make sense to you, check out Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday challenge on Splitcoaststampers to get the full gist of what she's up to this week.  The main theme is to bring at least three daisies, some bees, and even a birdie or two.  Don't bring trees, though, unless you want to enter the party through the back door.  The back door really isn't so bad; it just where all the rebellious tea potters prefer to enter.

Aint' she sweet?  My image, that is.  She's a girly-girl froggie with her glitterfied green eyelids, batting those long eyelashes at all the boy frogs as she hops along to the tea party.  Even the bees are happy to be buzzing along with her inhaling the sweet fragrance of her daisies.

My images are all by Rubbernecker (see supplies below) and colored with Copic markers.  I added lime green stickles to Froggie's eyelids and scattered straw stickles to the daisy centers.   In reality the sentiment is totally horizontal, but I wanted a circular sentiment panel.  Therefore, I used my black marker to highlight the words individually, cleaning the stamp in between, lining the sentiment up with my stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement.

I'm so glad you hopped on by today.  Keep hoppin' along those hoppy trails!
