Oh Alice ...CHAPTER 19: Twinkle, Twinkle...

"Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you're at!"

You know the song, perhaps?'

`I've heard something like it,' said Alice.

`It goes on, you know,' the Hatter continued, `in this way:--

"Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea-tray in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle--"'

Here the Dormouse shook itself, and began singing in its sleep `Twinkle, twinkle, twinkle, twinkle--' and went on so long that they had to pinch it to make it stop."

Hello out there! It's a beautiful day here in Wonderland and a twinkling one at that! We are wrapping up one FABULOUS month with a super fun, no-pressure challenge! We are going to ring out the month of June with a Twinkle!

That's right, just use something Twinkling, Glittery, or Sparkly on your card or creation this week and we'll put on our shades :D

There's some Twinkle-riffic samples from the DT ... make sure you pop on over the Oh Alice! to see them all!! Here's my attempt (it's an ATC)

and here are some close ups of the sparkles (Spica induced + gems)

A VERY special thanks to Lynne Phelps, our June Guest Designer! It has been a pleasure having you at our twisted little table and we will miss you! Next week we will be back to announce our July Guest DT :) and have more tricks and treats up our sleeves....'til then, there's no time limit to play this week, so get your twinkle on and be sure to come back and let us know when you did!

Have a very twinkling week!

Copics used: E00, E11, E15, E17 (Skin), E15, 17, 27, 29 + Chocolate Spica(hair), BV00, 02. 13 (dress), RV25, 29 (ribbon) (socks +BV00,02), C1, 3 nd 5 for background. Additional sparkle = Spicas - Pitch black, blossom, pink, clear, rhinetones coloured with RV25 and BV13

On a personal note I would like to thank you my blogging friends for your kind words, comments, thoughts & prayers for the IVF cycle we just did and our two precious little embryos.. unfortunately once again these two little ones did not make it and my test yesterday was -ve.
