Tea Party

Morning guys! I had hoped to post this last night but I just didn't get round to it-was so aiming for a post a day this week! Ah well! Since everyone seemed to really like my Alice in Wonderland Tag Sets I decided to have a play and make some little place cards-and well its just plain fun to make something different for a change!

I made a set of six, 2 of the mad Hatter, 2 of Alice and 2 of the Red Queen. These are available to buy here incase anyones interested;) By the way obviously people are having little Alice in Wonderland themed parties-if you're having one can you invite me please! Wouldn't it be fun! I think these will work for the Simon Says Challenge which is going to the movies-my movie being Alice in Wonderland and Sir Stampalot Challenge where the theme is fantasy.

Here's a card I made too-I don't think I've ever really made a card that I haven't coloured-at least not with a stamp-hmmm well not for ages and ages anyways! So quick to make-stamp-ink-stitch-done as Gordan would say!

Me and Leo have been up very early this morning but mr postie was very early too and he had a nice parcel for me with some goodies to alter, a new distress ink, some new paints, bits and bobs so hoping to have a play tonight when Leo's tucked up in bed:) Hope you have a wonderful weekend-the sun is shining here right now so lets hope it stays that way:)

P.S. Anyone is un the UK watching 'over the rainbow' on Saturday nights? I love it!


  1. Fabulous Ro! Love the ink distressing - Think we have a real Alice bug going around LOL! Thanks for the CCT tip! Kimx

  2. LOVE this card, I get a sense of mystique looking at it.

  3. Ro,
    Love how these turned out. I still haven't mastered the art of distressing. Thank you for taking time to create for us. I look forward to each day to seeing what you have put out there for us. Thanks again & GOOD LUCK with your entries.

  4. Fab place cards Rowena! You should take orders for parties!!!! xxx

  5. Hello there stranger, long time no chat to. My 26 year old daughter just had a tea party for her 26th birthday last week and her invites to her friends were the Mad Hatter tea party. I printed the scene out on acetate and she typed the invite out underneath and we added colourful fibres at the side. They looked fabulous with very little colour other than the fibres. I love what you have done with the images in your projects too Rowena.
    Hugs and Blessings
