Oh, Alice! - CHAPTER 20: In MY Country...

 "Well, in our country," said Alice, still panting a little, "you'd generally get to somewhere else -- if you ran very fast for a long time, as we've been doing." 

"A slow sort of country!" said the Queen. "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!" 

(Through the Looking Glass, Chapter 2) 

Hello, Peeps  Can you believe July is here already?  Such a wonderful time of year, if you lucky like me, the sun will be shining, and you'll have been indulging in a little tennis, and strawberry's & cream; got to love Wimbledon!

To honour American Independence day, with the 4th being right around the corner, we have a PATRIOTIC theme for you today!  WONDERLAND has gone red, white, and blue!  Yep, that's right!  

Call it inspiration, a color challenge....I guess it's really both!   Your mission this week is to use RED, WHITE and BLUE on your card or project! 
 For my card i chose to use the adorble 'The Tweedles' image from Busy Beauties Boutique, this image is their interpretation of Tweedledum & Tweedledee and I love it!

I printed out a sky background paper from my pc, but it looked a little too pale for my card, so i added some worn lipstick distressing ink to give the impression of clouds.  I then created some grass using layers of red card, and my grass border punch.  I printed the Tweedles out and coloured them with prismacolour pencils and odourless spirits, i then mounted them onto my background with foam pads to give some dimension.
In addition we have a WONDERFUL Sponsorship opportunity today.  Thank you SO much to EMILY from EAD Designs!  ONE LUCKY WINNER will receive a WONDERFULLY GENEROUS gift certificate to the EAD Designs Store!   Just get your red, white and blue on and ENTER your card here to win!

You have until Friday, July 9th at 8pm CST to enter to WIN the gift certificate from EAD Designs!  Good luck and have a safe and wonderful US holiday, everyone!
