CHAPTER 34: A Mad Tea-Party


`And ever since that,' the Hatter went on in a mournful tone, `he won't do a thing I ask! It's always six o'clock now.'
A bright idea came into Alice's head. `Is that the reason so many tea-things are put out here?' she asked.
`Yes, that's it,' said the Hatter with a sigh: `it's always tea-time, and we've no time to wash the things between whiles.'
`Then you keep moving round, I suppose?' said Alice.
`Exactly so,' said the Hatter: `as the things get used up.'
`But what happens when you come to the beginning again?' Alice ventured to ask.
~Chapter 7, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Awesome Wonderland greetings to all! First of all, let's congratulate our WINNER from last week's text challenge. Congrats to XYZ! Send a note to the Mad Hatter, Jessica, for details on how to claim your Greeting Farm single!

Can you believe summer is fairly over, well Winter if you live her in Oz? It's time to change from iced teas over to hot teas. I love autumn and all the wonderful warm drinks, wonderful sweaters and gorgeous colors it brings. In Wonderland, it was perpetually tea time and I could live that life for a long, long time!

Your challenge this week is to explore things that could make up your tea-time activity. Use tea bag folding in the construction of your project. This is a great resource: Tea Bag Folding. Anything relating to time would pair perfectly with this challenge, but isn't a requirement! Show us your fab folding abilities, doing it Alice-style!

You have until midnight Central time on Friday, October 15th to complete your project and link it up to the Oh Alice Challenge blog. You don't want to miss out on your chance of wining a 6x6 pad of Basic Grey papers! The clock is ticking - don't be Late for TEA!



So my card uses a tea bag folding technique called Dahlia Folding. The Lovely Leonie taught this technique at a Stampin Up class I attended. Thanks Leonie! 

So don't forget to head over to the Oh Alice Blog to check out the rest of the DT's Amazing Tea Bag foldings!
