A charming challenge!

Can you believe it Im back again with another card???!!? Yep my mojo is defiantly on its way back!! I was going to post this tomorrow but who can wait, im excited my mojo is back. I have made this card for Magnolia Down Under Challenges & Just Magnolia. I have never entered a MDUC challenge as I used to be on the dt hehe so thought this would be fun playing along for the first time as a participant. The challenge at MDUC is to use a charm on your project and the Just magnolia challenge is anything goes.

The charm, doily, gardenia, leaves & Stamp are from Tickled Pink Stamps! This is the paper pad I used for this card, October afternoon pad will be available in my store when it opens next week! I will also be popping one of these in my grand openeing candy!

Thanks for looking, enjoy your week.

I have had this Kraftin Kimmie image available from Tickled Pink Stamps coloured up for about a week now and the pretty girl was just waiting for me to put her on a card! My mojo has been hmmm on holiday for a bit so when that happens I always try to find a challenge to help motivate some mojo! I came accross this sketch for Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge 66 and LOVED it the minute I saw it! I also saw that the Kraftin Kimmie challenge is Flowers. The flowers, leaves and pearls are all from Bizzy Becs And the Doily and KK stamp are from TPS. So here is the sketch and the card I made for it.

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" ;)
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to incorporate FOOD into this week's project! Everyone loves a little treat, right?

Enjoy this cup of coffee heheh

We have ANOTHER TREAT for you today...and it's a rather LARGE and generous portion! We are thrilled to welcome CLEAR AND SIMPLE STAMPS as our sponsor this week! The fabulous prize?

Chapter 9: Somewhere in the Sunny. sketchy, afternoon

CHAPTER 9: Somewhere in the Sunny, Sketchy, Afternoon...
Alice in Wonderland, how do you get to Wonderland?
Over the hill or underland, or just behind the tree?
When clouds go rolling by, they roll away and leave the sky.
Where is the land beyond the eye, that people can not see, where can it be?
Where do stars go, where is the crescent moon?
They must be somewhere in the sunny afternoon.
Alice in Wonderland, where is the path to Wonderland?
Over the hill or here or there, I wonder where.

Hello! Hopefully it's a Sunny, Golden afternoon in your neck of this Wonderland! We have a Sketch Challenge for you today brought to you by our very own TASHA! Here's the sketch:

We hope you'll join us this week down the Rabbit Hole for this fun sketch. What's more? There is a VERY generous prize offering this week from The BEARY SCRAP!

Chapter 8 You can learn a lot of things from the flowers!
"Never mind Alice said in a soothing tone, and stooping down to the daisies, who were just beginning again, she whispered, If you dont hold your tongues I will pick you! There was silence in a moment and several of the pink daisies turned white. Thats right said the tiger-lilly. The daisies are worst of all, when one speaks they all begin together, and its enough to make one wither to hear the way they go on! How is it you can all talk nicely Alice said, hoping to get it in a better temper by a compliment! I've been in many gardens before but none of the flowers could talk".
