CHAPTER 6: The Red Queen's FINE PRINT

CHAPTER 6: The Red Queen's FINE PRINT...

"The Red Queen shook her head, "You may call it 'nonsense' if you like," she said, "but I've heard nonsense, compared with which that would be as sensible as a dictionary!"

FINALLY Friday!

Phew! I have been looking forward to today for lots of reasons ;)
It's Friends With Flair day, I got to do another Friday Fun challenge, I don't have to go to work tomorrow, Mike and I are going out to eat somewhere we have never been tonight and I get to show you this card that I LOVE :D


Today's Friday Fun challenge from Kimme is a Spring color challenge to use Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Barely Banana (or similar colors).

What do you think?
I love this card but I think I already said that didn't I? I love how the egg looks like stained glass or tie-dyed or something like that....

The pretty egg is from the Feb. 2009 Unity Kit of the Month
Endings and Beginnings.

I also made this for today's Friends With Flair post...check out the Unity Blog for the list of all the Friends With Flair blogs.

Make sure you see what my Friday Fun sisters made for today's challenge!

2 Fer Unity Thursday

{I mean that to read "fer" you know, kinda slang-ish, lol}

Yep, I made 2 cards...don't know what got into me, must be how inspiring these stamps are! Can't control myself sometimes :D

My 1st card uses one little stamp from Rockin' Unity Style, the *i love you*:
I just had to make something with my new Webster Pages goodies!

My next card uses the Donna Downey kit Where You Are and let me tell you something completely honest about this stamp set....you need it. It is GORGEOUS! The one stamp in it that I used on the pink layer...OMG, I can't live without that stamp, it makes the most gorgeous custom patterned paper....LOVE it...ok, done.

Here's my card, for my momma's birthday tomorrow:

The sentiment is from Birdie Inspiration.

These fun colors are from this weeks SCS Color Challenge.


Now I know you want to see what the rest of the team has made today!

Oh Alice! CHAPTER 5: WHO ARE YOU?

CHAPTER 5: WHO ARE YOU?
"Who are YOU?" said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, "I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then."

This week we are celebrating SPRING here in Wonderland! The challenge is to use a caterpillar of butterfly on a project!

I am always up for using butterflies so that is what I did!

I used Bevy of Butterflies from Unity and a sentiment from Unity too that I am not sure of....I'll look into that or if you know, let me know, lol ;D

And, we have a special sponsor this week, our very own Jen Shults!
Jen's stamp company,Wild Flower Kids is providing this week's prize, be sure to check it out on the Oh Alice Blog!

We'd LOVE for you to plunge Down the Rabbit hole with us again this week!
All you have to do is upload your creation and link it using Mr. Linky on the Oh Alice! Blog!

Oh Alice! CHAPTER 4: Picturing Wonderland

CHAPTER 4: Picturing Wonderland:
"Thus grew the tale of Wonderland:Thus slowly, one by one,Its quaint events were hammered out -And now the tale is done,And home we steer, a merry crew,
Beneath the setting sun.

Alice! a childish story take,And with gentle hand lay it were Childhood's dreams are twined. In Memory's mystic band,Like pilgrim's wither'd wreath of flowersPluck'd in a far-off land..."

We have another sketch Challenge today, this time brought to us by our very own Pam Varnell. Pam created this sketch JUST for the Oh, Alice! DT blog and it just reminds me of Wonderland itself!

and here is my interesting interpretation....
.
I used the *perfect for Alice* teacup from Unity and some unknown paper for my card.

We'd LOVE for you to plunge Down the Rabbit hole with us again this week!
All you have to do is upload your creation and link it using Mr. Linky on the Oh Alice! Blog!

CHAPTER 3: Painting the Roses Red

CHAPTER 3: Painting the Roses Red:
"Would you tell me please," said Alice a little timidly, "Why are you painting those roses?"Five and Seven said nothing, but looked at Two. Two began in a low voice, "Why the fact is, you see, Miss, this here ought to have been a Red rose tree, and we put a white one in by mistake"...

We're painting the Roses RED...and blue...and purple....and hey, we're painting our NAILS too! Check out this AWESOMELY ALICE inspiration picture featuring this SUPER cool new O.P.I. Polish collection, "Wonderland". Which, I don't have a card for because I was so worried about coloring in one of these cute Kraftin' Kimmie stamps that the colors left my mind.....forgive me? I'll come back with one later this week, promise!

The FABULOUS sponsor for this challenge is in fact, KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS! The Oh Alice team got to play with the newest stamps and here's my guy all dressed up, ready for a tea party!We also have a special Tea Party Guest joining us for the month of March!
Please welcome ERIN LEVEILLE. Her card for the 1st challenge got her this spot...next month it could be YOU!

Play along with us this week for your chance to win a prize pack of rubber stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie!
