"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 getting down to business and reading the "fine print" at Oh, Alice!
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 DT 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!
It was hard to pick which image to use since all of Digital Delights digis are so cute. I used sheet music as my printed text. I also popped up the Queens crown and hearts on her skirt with pop dots. The fun designer paper is from Stampin Up. I colored with Copics, of course.
So what's the big announcement your asking? I have been invited to be Oh, Alice's official Dormouse. What does that mean? Well besides getting to stick around to hang out at the tea party with the fabulous 13 and The Mad Hatter (Jessica) I will be the greeter/good will ambassador for Oh, Alice. I'm here to give all you crafty artists a little TLC from Oh, Alice. I'll be stopping by everyone that participates blog each weeks to welcome you to our curious little challenge blog. Now in the original story at the end of the tea party the March Hare and the Mad Hatter stuff the sleepy Dormouse into a tea pot. Hopefully Jessica won't want to do this to me. I'm choosing to see myself as the Dormouse from Tim Burtons version. Much more heroic (and awake).

Question of the day: Who said "a la peanut butter sandwiches"? Don't cheat and go look it up.

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! And, we have some WONDERFUL winged-things to show off courtesy of this week's sponsor, our very own Jen Shults! Jen's stamp company, Wild Flower Kids, has grown to be a favorite of mine and we are SO honored that she's agreed to sponsor the Oh, Alice! Blog by showcasing one of her new lines "All-A-Flutter"! Jen was gracious enough to provide the DT with some of these wonderfully cute and whimsical images as well...Check them out at the Oh, Alice Blog.

Today's card was inspired by the Monday Mania Challenge at Club Anya and Friends. The inspiration photo had a browns and pinks and beautiful chandelier. The sketch is from Friday Sketchers #93. Once I started posting this on my blog I realized I did it again, I used the wrong stamp, CRAP!!!!!! I'm so mad at myself! So this doesn't qualify to win at Club Anya. Maybe I'll redo it. I really need a good way of remembering which blog these came from, The Greeting Farm or Club Anya. Or maybe I need to cut back on how many challenges I'm trying to complete in a week. Crazy talk, right? Have a great St. Patty's Day, I know I could use some of that Irish Luck!

"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 flowers
Pluck'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!
Here's the sketch:
I did something a little different this week. It's not a card, but on an 8X8 canvas. Can you tell I have been devouring Tim Holtz new book A Compendium of Curiosities? It's kind of like crack, after your first hit your hooked. Let me know what you think. Also, I will be announcing the winners of my blog candy later today.
We would 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 below! The keyword this week for public galleries is OAC4.
There's no time limit for this week's sketch, so take your time here in Wonderland and ENJOY!

I have 2 challenges in one for you today.
First is the Monday Mania challenge at Club Anya and Friends. The challenge was to use circles, dots, spots, and anything round in your card. I snuck this one in under the wire. It was due at 6PM and I got it turned in at 5:55. Nothing like waiting till the last minute.
The second challenge I used was the Friday Sketchers challenge. I saw the round sketch and knew it was just what I needed.
I used the new Oliver and Amelia set from The Greeting Farm. Isn't he a cutie, he reminds me of my nephew, CJ. In fact I had his birthday in mind when I made this card.
