Well, this gal is dependent on the sneak peek again this week. Hmmm, that rhymes … MM are you rubbing off on me? Hey, that would be a good thing!
Anyhoo, I’m hoping those were bear prints. So I brought a panda this week and, being a vegetarian, he brought his own favorite picnic food … bamboo.
The background panel is stamped with bamboo in two shades of green. The panda image is embossed in black and sets atop two strips of woven bamboo trim. I clipped the scallops off the Nestie oval to keep with the zigzag pattern of the trim. Kind of looks more like an oval sprocket though!
If my panda doesn’t count for today’s challenge, then please think of my bamboo trim as basket-like material! Does that count?
Since this mama panda has a NEW baby, this also qualifies for Kelly’s WOW challenge from week #1 using the word NEW.
Happy tea-partying everyone! You know I’ll be comin’ around to comment just as soon as I can!

:D - I can see why you brought a Panda, especially with all that green basket work. Now I take a look at the sneak peek it reminds me of a basketwork frog wastepaper basket we had for years. I just love your woven bamboo - is it lovely and glossy and smooth? And of course, bamboo shoots are food - bring enough and we can have a good stir-fry over the campfire.at the picnic.

Whoo! Hoo! I think you already DO have a crystal ball! You nailed this challenge, even blind folded! Me thinks Barney is going to be so stricken over the novelty of a black and white mamma and her baby fuzzy, fluffy, little play toy looking bear couple that he might crawl outa that basket to investigate!
Okay, you coax him out and I will nab the food.......Barney will be bamboozled! Snort! Way to come early and nail this challenge M! Your card is so wonderful and it can be used! Whoot!
