Chapter 47: Back Down the Rabbit Hole



Greetings, Friends!

Today is a BITTERSWEET...although MOSTLY sweet post for Oh, Alice.   It has been almost ONE YEAR since Jess got this crazy little idea one night to dedicate a blog, and a Saturday each week, to Alice in Wonderland because of her deep love of the characters, story, and mostly just Alice. We have had an AMAZING team of girls on the DT, some who have been and gone and some that are still with us, but always creating Gorgeous creations for you!

After careful consideration and thought, some of us had decided that it was time to head back down the Rabbit hole and onto new Adventures.

Oh, Alice will be closing it's doors this week, but will return next week as The Altered Alice, a blog that our Twisted Thirteen member Lynne Phelps has started and will continue on from here.   There is nothing to fear!  The Altered Alice will still be bringing you FABULOUS challenges, lovely excerpts from our beloved chapters that tell us so much about Alice's world, and we have alerted our sponsors about the new Blog name and format, so hopefully you'll see some familiar faces VERY soon!

Here are a few words from Lynne about what you can expect at the Altered Alice:

"In Wonderland, Alice learned that everything changes so the important thing is to be true to yourself. That is true for the Alice in Wonderland challenges as well, which will be changing and growing in new directions under the next Mad Hatter, our own design team member Lynne Phelps. The Oh, Alice! challenges will now be hosted on her Alice in Wonderland artwork blog, The Altered Alice (link: http://alteredalice.blogspot.com). You will find our same familiar challenge Chapters but they will be in a new monthly form, beginning on the first Sunday of the month and posting the winner on the last Sunday of the month. The design team will provide weekly project posts to inspire you along the way! "

Without further adieu, I'd like to thank all the members of the Twisted Thirteen who have been AMAZING to create with and I would especially like to thank Jess for giving me a go on Oh Alice, I have loved every minute of my time on this DT, but unfortunately I won't be continuing with the Altered Alice and wish all that do all the very best!

 Be sure to FOLLOW "The Altered Alice" right away so that you do not miss out on the first challenge or any new prizes coming their way!  

On that note, let's get to this week's CHALLENGE:

This week's mission is to travel "Back down the Rabbit Hole" challenge-back to the beginning-Create a HELLO card (for OR a "Goodbye" card-it's all about what it looks like on the other side of that Looking Glass, right?

The DT has once again been blessed with a WONDERFUL assortment of Nikki Sivils papers and embellishments to work with as Nikki has graciously supplied the DT with, as well as a WONDERFUL prize pack for ONE lucky winner (winner will be announced next week on the Altered Alice challenge Blog and also you must link your creations THERE.

In addition to creating a HELLO or GOODBYE card and entering it over at The Altered Alice, the NEW Alice in Wonderland Challenge Blog, don't forget to "FOLLOW" the new "Altered Alice" blog where next week's challenge AND the winner of the last Nikki giveaway will be drawn! 

So I have made a Goodbye card. I have used this Gorgeoous Tilda stamp, using some of the beautiful 
Nikki Sivils papers. I liked how tilda was blowing kisses, it is like she is saying goodbye and good luck, which is exctly what I wanted to say!



My Card was colored with Copic Markers on Xpress It Blending card, all of which are available from Sammi over at Mad For Markers!
