Inkspirations sketch # 25 plays with TPS

Hello all, brrr its been so dark, wet and cold today, and I have stayed in my pjs all day hehehe. So Kell sets us TPS dt a challenge each week just to make our dt cards FUN. This week her challenge was to use ribbon/lace. I also LOVED this inkspirations sketch so thought I would join in that too. I have only ever made one easel card which was months ago so decided to attempt another one for this sketch! So here is the sketch...

Isn't Lil lolita Evie the cutest!! I absolutly loved bringing her to life with my distress inks. She and the rest of the lil lolitas are exclusive to Tickled pink stamps only! The lace, charm and doilies are also from tps. And if your looking for a fun new challenge, and love the lolitas as much as I do then click on the picture below to check out Lil Lolita Boutique challenge blog.

They also have a dt call on at the moment looking for 4 DT members....this is just for the challenge blog and is not the TPS store. The Dt call closes on Sunday at midnight, so if you have lolitas and would like to apply pop over here to check out the deets!

Chapter 15: New Ideas are SWIZRLING...doors are opening....all in our little WONDERLAND

CHAPTER 15: New ideas are SWIRLING...doors are opening...all in our little WONDERLAND...
"It's no use talking about it," Alice said, looking up at the house and pretending it was arguing with her. `I'm not going in again yet. I know I should have to get through the Looking-glass again -- back into the old room -- and there'd be an end of all my adventures!'
So, resolutely turning back upon the house, she set out once more down the path, determined to keep straight on till she got to the hill. For a few minutes all went on well, and she was just saying, `I really shall do it this time -- ' when the path gave a sudden twist and shook itself (as she described it afterwards), and the next moment she found herself actually walking in at the door..."

Hello everyone!
We are so excited today as we enter a new door here at Oh, Alice! There are always twists and turns down Alice's path, and with that, we have some good news, even some sad news, but we are all looking forward to our next Chapter here in WONDERLAND!
Today we are also excited to welcome LITTLE PAPER SHOP as our Sponsor! The very generous Julia has not only let the DT play with this adorably cute ALICE digi stamp, but is offering a $15 Gift Certificate to the LPS shop to one lucky winner this week! We can't thank Julia enough for this fabulous sponsorship and can't wait to see your creations this week.
Our Challenge this week is a fun one! Since we have so many ideas "SWIRLING" around in our heads here and can't wait to bring you the next three months worth of challenges, we can't wait to see what YOU have swirling about!
USE SWIRLS on your card/project this week. You can use DP, stamps, bling, whatever swirls up your own creativity!
You have until Friday, June 4th at 8pm CST to upload your card/creation using our Linking system below. One random winner will be chosen to WIN the Little Paper Shop gift certificate and announced here next week on the Blog! GOOD LUCK and get those ideas swirlin'! Note from the MAD HATTER herself:
A very heartfelt goodbye and HUGE thank you to the following DT members who have served so wonderfully during their time as members of our TWISTED 13: Pam, Betty, Catherine, Mary & Lisa
We know that you cant really 'close" the door to Wonderland...well, maybe you can, but just like Alice did, you can ALWAYS come back through! We know they won't be strangers as they'll be playing along with our challenges if and when they can. They will be missed but it will ALWAYS be their un-birthday here at our little twisted table.
Be sure to tune in next week as it will be time for Lynn, our June Tea Party Guest's first challenge and also for a VERY exciting announcement as there may be a few new place settings at our table... CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER!!!
I will be back later with my TPS card...

DP2 # 33 Babies

I made this card today, my first ever Mo manning card :) I have always loved the images but because Im a watercolourer I have never ordered them. ....although I did just get 3 in the mail this week in rubber!!! from Tickled Pink Stamps. I have decided to play with the Mo's digital pencil challenge and the theme is this card would probably turn anyone off wanting babies heheh I swear this image was made for my daughter who is now 9 but oh man when she was 3 and chubby just like this, she had the biggest tatrums. I remember one of my friends who didnt have kids wanting to call an ambulance cause she thought Madi was having a seizure LOL nope just a 2yo tantrum!
My dp, doily, lace and charm are all from Tickled pink stamps! I love this magnolia dp its just gorgeous. I have used distress inks to colour my image.I have 3 more Mo images printed up cant wait to colour them too.

Chapter 14: Gettin' Sketchy in the Golden Afternoon

CHAPTER 14: Gettin' Sketchy in the Golden Afternoon...
"Little bread-and-butterflies kiss the tulips,
and the sun is like a toy balloon.
There are get up in the morning glories,
in the golden afternoon.
There are dizzy daffodils on the hillside,
strings of violets are all in tune,
Tiger lilies love the dandy lions,
in the golden afternoon,
the golden afternoon.
There are dog and caterpillars and a copper centipede,
where the lazy daisies love the very peaceful life they lead... "

Chapter 13: Mushroom Inspiration..

"Oh dear! I'd nearly forgotten that I've got to grow up again! Let me see--how IS it to be managed? I suppose I ought to eat or drink something or other; but the great question is, what?''
Alice looked all round her at the flowers and the blades of grass, but she did not see anything that looked like the right thing to eat or drink under the circumstances. There was a large mushroom growing near her, about the same height as herself; and when she had looked under it, and on both sides of it, and behind it, it occurred to her that she might as well look and see what was on the top of it..."

Good day, everyone!
