Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.

Here are my Alice in Wonderland inspired projects:

The Stamping Boutique kindly gave us some of their images to use.

I have used Alice in teacup for my card
I have embossed blue card with butterflies embossing folder and layered it onto red card.  Printed Alice in Teacup onto white card and coloured with chalks and markers.  Added butterfly and mushroom brads.  Added rhinestones and layered onto blue card.
I also made a scrapbook page
The theme for the concert for the dance school where 2 of my grand daughters go to classes was Alice in Wonderland.  Emily was the March Hare in the Tea Party tap dance and a playing card in the ballet plus other characters in other dances.  Brianna who was 5 at the time was the teacup in the Tea Party and a butterfly in her ballet.

I have used two papers from Easy Party Printables Wonderland backgrounds.  Typed Heading and journalling on the computer.  Added Faery Ink stamp Gabbie Alice which I have had a for a while.

I hope you will visit all the blogs and see all the lovely work.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each one.
