Mad Tea Party!

 Yay! 
Today is the day!
Welcome to my tea party!
Please have a sweet nibble 
and 
something to sip.
Then you can have your portrait done!
Would you like to see how the other guest's 
portraits turned out?
Well first we have Alice of course!
Doesn't she look sweet in her summery frock?
 Then, there is that crazy Mad Hatter,
although he looks quite serious here!
 And, once we got the White Rabbit to sit still,
here is the result!
 Lastly, came the Queen of Hearts,
so royal and gracious!
I hope you had a wonderfully 
fantastic time at my tea party!
Please feel free to check out the other
tea parties too, 
Bye for now!
