(I have had lots of trouble uploading this. This is an edited version.)
NO, this is NOT a photo of mothermark, aka Cindy, aka da mudder. It is a photo of Honoria Astoria modeling the gown suggested by our Tea Pot Party hostess Sheri - surely da mudder will want to wear this beauty to her BIG THANK YOU party! This seamstress followed the suggestions to minimize unflattering aspects of the figure, while enhancing those skinny legs. (Tell me when you find the formula that really works!)
You may have noticed a lot of black and white and white and black polka dots - Cindy's trademark - in the gallery the past day. We are sending lots of thank you's and hearts to show our appreciation to Cindy who started this whole tea pot party extravanganza and thoughtful destination. For all this, as well as your inspiration, creativity, and humor as well as much more, we thank you - and hope this "retirement" is only temporary.

Thanks, Sheri and all - this party is in capable hands!
(I just had to use this AI stamp, which became a sort of trade mark for several of our past parties. I think I managed to include enough details to qualify for extra cookies - but not the back door, for that is not a parrot LOL!)

I'm glad that I waited until I saw this to comment...what a riot!!! Dorothy, you really nailed this challenge! Your image is priceless, what with those skinny legs sticking out of the "balanced" outfit, the matching accessories and that HAT! Great DP, love those hearts and your paper piecing. Truly a Teaparty classic!

I have been trying to open this card for ages, I read all the wonderful comments so by the time Honoria presented herself I had high expectations. I was not dissapointed, she is everything I hoped for and more. I hope she enjoys living in My Favs!!!!! TFS
