Oh, Alice! - 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


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, they have some very nice simple instructions. Including the Flower Petal Fold which I used for this weeks card...
 
 
 For my card I decided to take tea in the garden, with some rather unusual flowers.  The image I used is from The Octopode Factory all the images available there are from original drawings by Lily Chilvers. I have to say I love her style, and had so much fun colouring Alice in for this card.
 
 Hopefully you'll feel inspired to try your hand at teabag folding, and take part in this week's Oh, Alice Challenge. The clock is ticking - don't be Late for TEA!

Thanks for visiting with me
