CHAPTER 11: Little People...Big Wonderland

CHAPTER 11:  Little People...Big Wonderland

'Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Agreed to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
As black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel.'

Purty huh????

Here is my card that I made using the Donna Downey Kit Insightful Meadows
I don't think that lace goes with the card but I noticed that after I made it and took the picture...so it stayed ;)  Next time I'll use something without flowers on it, I think that would work better.

CHAPTER 10: QUEEN of TARTS...

CHAPTER 10: QUEEN of TARTS...

"On this the White Rabbit blew three blasts on the trumpet, and then unrolled the parchment scroll, and read as follows:
'The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts,
All on a summer day:
The Knave of Hearts, he stole those tarts,
And took them quite away!"


Uh ohhhhhhh...someone has stolen the Queen's Tarts! That's a no-no!  We need to restore the sweetness back to Wonderland, don't you agree?   That means it's time for a sweet treat here...or maybe a mushroom or two?  I think I saw one floating around here that said "Eat Me" ;)

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to incorporate FOOD into this week's project! Everyone loves a little treat, right?

{Supplies from the ON SALE Cherry On Top Kit!}

We have ANOTHER TREAT for you today...and it's a rather LARGE and generous portion!   We are thrilled to welcome CLEAR AND SIMPLE STAMPS as our sponsor this week!  The fabulous prize?  A whopping $25 Gift Certificate to the Clear and Simple Stamps Store!

Please have your entries in ON THE OH ALICE! BLOG by FRIDAY April 30th at 8PM CST to enter to win the Gift Certificate and be sure to stop by the CLEAR AND SIMPLE STAMPS store to savor the sweetness they have for sale!

Please use keyword OAC10 when uploading the a public gallery...thanks!


Life is short...SAVOR the SWEETNESS!

What do you think?  Pretty different for a Jimmi card, huh...I think my sewing machine is making me a tad more creative...so watch out, lol! ;D

We hope you'll play along with Etsy Inspired this week.....the prize is a fabulous Cherry On Top Mini-Kit!

CHAPTER 9: Somewhere in the Sunny, Sketchy, Afternoon...

CHAPTER 9: Somewhere in the Sunny, Sketchy, Afternoon...

Alice in Wonderland, how do you get to Wonderland?
Over the hill or underland, or just behind the tree?
When clouds go rolling by, they roll away and leave the sky.
Where is the land beyond the eye, that people can not see, where can it be?
Where do stars go, where is the crescent moon?
They must be somewhere in the sunny afternoon.
Alice in Wonderland, where is the path to Wonderland?
Over the hill or here or there, I wonder where.
This week we have a Sketch Challenge for you today brought to you by our very own TASHA! Here's the sketch:


And here's my card using the sketch (and lots of bad stitching, lmbo!!):
I used Inside and Out and Together We Bloom for my card and paper from Basic Grey.

We hope you'll join us this week down the Rabbit Hole for this fun sketch.

There is a VERY generous prize of a $20 gift certificate this week from
The BEARY SCRAP!

Find out all the details and post YOUR creation on the Oh Alice Blog!

Earthy Friday!

Today's Friday Fun is all about the Earth, earthy colors, images, whatever you desire....So I went with bird houses and earthy colors for my card.

These stamps are from the Feb. Kit of the Month, Nothin' But Blue Skies.

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!
Kim IS BACK!  and I'm so happy!

Have a great day!  See you tomorrow for Oh Alice day!
