Happy UnBirthday!


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!"

This week we're g
etting down to business and reading the "fine print" in Wonderland at the Oh, Alice! Challenge blog.

We're also SO excited to be welcoming Digital Delights by Louby Loo as our sponsor this week! WOW! What a lucky group we are! Wendy from Digital Delights has not only graced the Design Team with some super fun Alice-inspired images to use, but is giving away a TEN DOLLAR GIFT CERTIFICATE to one lucky winner who will be randomly drawn from all the entries this week! THANKS Wendy!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create a card using some form of TEXT/Printed DP, Old Book pages, Newspaper print, Old dictionary, etc. We just need to see SOME form of printed text on your card or project!

Need some inspiration WRITTEN out for you? Check out the samples on the Oh, Alice! Challenge blog from the Twisted Thirteen and our March Tea Party Guest Erin!

A note about my card: I used the adorable Madd Hatter Peyton image (so fun!), and took poetic license in coloring him up with my Copic Markers. The background is from the MK-Designs Tea Time Add-on digi pack from Shabby Pickle Designs (thank you Betty, my chief enabler, for turning me on to this site!). I resized one of the 12 x 12 papers to 5 x 5 before printing it out. I made the TEXT background myself. I also followed Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #66.

Speaking of Betty, I got to meet her and her sweet (and adorable) daughter Rio tonight at our LSS for some scrapping/stamping time after first grabbing a bite to eat at Macaroni Grill (yum!). Betty is just as fun in person as she is on line. I'm so glad I've found a new friend to scrap with ... I've really missed crop nights since my BFF Des moved back to Arizona. (Hi Des! I miss you!) Betty and I are planning another crop day in April. So fun!

Have a WONDERful day!

I was so wondering how you got that checkerboard on there! Thanks for sharing your crafty secrets, Lisa! I love this card! background is diving and I love the text paper you created, too. Great colors and love the pop of raspberry from the ribbon & tea cup.
Now just tell me when the crop is so I can book my flight. LOL!
