This week's tea party heads to Louisianna, also known as the Big Easy. Heidi is going thru a pretty rough time and needs some cheering!
A few of years ago, we drove down to New Orleans and went to the Cafe Du Monde and ate some delicious beignets! Yummy!!! I thought I would try to make a Mardi Gras mask card, including confetti. I used glossy accents on the eyes and even cut and curled some black paper for eyelashes! I used lots of stickles too, sorry they just don't photograph that well. But I am sure you get the idea. Here's the best joke I found online...
Pierre and Boudreaux was flying Cajun Airlines to da Mardi Gras. Boudreaux was flying da plane, and Pierre was in da back foolin wit da cargo equipment an stuff.
Da plane hit some turbulence an started bouncin around and Boudreaux got knocked unconscious. Den da plane start driftin. Pierre come run up to da front an Boudreaux was sprawl out all over da steerin wheel.
Well, Pierre don't know nuttin bout flyin an he start to get panaky. He grab da microphone and holla "May Day! May Day! Dis is Cajun Air Line 90210. Boudreaux, him knock unconscious an I don know nuttin about flyin dis plane!"
"Dis is da control tower," Someone answer. "Don you worry a bout nittin. We gonna splain how you to land dis plane, step by sep, ah gar-own-tee! Jus leave anyting ta us. Fus, how high yu are, an whas you position?"
Pierre thought a minute, den say, "I'm five foot ten an I'm all day wa to da front of da plane."
"No! No! No!" answer da tower. " What you altitude, an where you location?"
Pierre say, "Man, rat now ah got a po attitude, an ah'm from Thibodeaux, Laweezeeanna!"
" No! No! No!" came an exasperated voice. " Ah needs to know how many feet you got off da groun an how you plane in relation to da airport!"
Pierre, he start to panic by dis time. He say, "Countin Boudreaux's feets an mine togedder, we got fo feet off da groun an I don beleieve dis plane related to you airport!"
A long pause-----de silence was deafanin.
"All we needs to know, whoo you got insurance wit?"

Oh my goodness, if I could stop laughing at your story I could hit the correct letter on my computer. Miss Kathleen Lammie from Alabama I think that is the funniest and best story description EVER. I love your card too my friend.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Fan-tas-tic! Kathleen, this Mardi Gras mask is the Cat's Pajamas and ready to go on parade to the Cat's Meow! How wonderfully creative you are, not only with paper but with story telling! Now this is the right way to start my day!
