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"

Here's my project for this week. I love lots of foods (most of you have endured many recipes and orations from this personal chef), and I used to make lots of sweets. However, I realize that the best treats in life are friends and family that decorate my life! That led me to make this card for this week's challenge!

The central image is Ching-Chou Kuik's Cheshire Cat Illusion stamp from Sweet Pea stamps, and it's currently ON SALE!

Here's a close-up of my Copic marker coloring, and the gleam in their eyes is Ranger Glossy Accents. These images are so beautiful, and spark the imagination in so many ways. I absolutely adore them!! You will see more of her images in my future work.

I paired the image with Jillibean and Cosmo Cricket papers, and a sentiment from Unity Stamp Company's December 2009 Kit of the Month. I also used some Ranger distress ink to distress the card, and a bit of Offray ribbon to add a splash of whimsy. The layout is Card Positioning System (CPS) #163.

I hope you've enjoyed stopping by today. Please be sure to visit the other members of the Oh Alice! team and leave them some love. We really love doing these projects to inspire you so we love to know you enjoy them. Have a wonderful weekend!!

Ta for now, ~ky
