Oh Alice Chapter 44 'Curiouser and Curiouser!'

`Curiouser and curiouser!' cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English); `now I'm opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!' (for when she looked down at her feet, they seemed to be almost out of sight, they were getting so far off). `Oh, my poor little feet, I wonder who will put on your shoes and stockings for you now, dears? I'm sure _I_ shan't be able! I shall be a great deal too far off to trouble myself about you: you must manage the best way you can; --but I must be kind to them,' thought Alice, `or perhaps they won't walk the way I want to go! Let me see: I'll give them a new pair of boots every Christmas.'

Hello from all of us here in Wonderland! This week we are curiouser and curiouser to see if you are willing to play along with our weekly challenge. The challenge is a simple one, and one that most of us should be able to play along with, we would like you to take Wonderland and turn it into a Winter Wonderland! Yes, that's right.....put your boots on, hats, mittens and lets play in the snow! Alice with a hat on? Rabbit in the snow? Anything that reflects a Winter Wonderland. Have fun with it!

Here is what I created for this weeks challenge:-
I used the bauble stamp from Outlines and placed my Wonderland image inside the baubles and used blue ink to give that Winter Wonderland feel to my card.
Winter Wonderland was generated on the computer along with co-ordinated buttons in a cool blue.  I also sponged through sequin waste to add to the frosty feel, the white card in the background has been embossed with a snowflake embossing folder and punched snowflakes have been added to add to the Winter theme.

This week we are being sponsored by SUGAR NELLIE! The winner's prize will be an awesome set of 6 Leanne Ellis Alice In Wonderland stamps!! Woohoo!!

Click on the links below to see what the Twisted Team made to inspire you!
As usual, you'll have until midnight Christmas Eve (Friday, December 24th) to show us your work. Just link a picture of it to the Oh Alice! Challenge Blog. Take some creative time for yourself this week during all the hustle and bustle. Best Wishes!!

NOTE ~ We will be taking a short time away to play in our Wonderlands through the holidays. We will resume in the new year with more challenges and fun giveaways!

Wishing you all the happiest Christmas and Best Wishes for The New Year,  Tracy x x

Mmm - I love a blue Christmas. Such smart thinking to make two baubles. The echo is show stopping! Now, I need to find some sequin waste - thanks for enabling. Hope you have a beautiful Christmas!

Fantastic card, and beautiful colours too.

Although I always thought there was something a bit dodgy about that caterpillar ;)
