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, friends! Can you believe July is here already? ..... At Oh, Alice this week -
in honor of the US's 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! In addition we have a WONDERFUL Sponsorship opportunity today. Thank you SO much to EMILY from EAD Designs! Emily has graciously offered the DT some wonderful Alice-themed stickers to use for our projects today (unfortunately being an "international friend" upside down in Australia I don't have mine yet... but don't worry as soon as it arrives I'll be showing you some projects using those stickers as soon as they arrive!)

This challenge... 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!

Before we get to this week's challenge, we have a few FUN announcements to make! Sadly we say goodbye to Jimmi this week. We thank her for all her wonderfully twisty designs and will miss her at the tea table here. We are THRILLED to announce at the same time, that Lynne Phelps has accepted a FULL TIME position here right at our twisted table. Lynne's designs TOTALLY WOW'd us as our June Guest Designer and well, some things are JUST SO Alice that they're meant to be! WELCOME LYNNE!

Also, as today is the first challenge of July, a BIG TWISTY welcome to EMMA EADS, our JULY GUEST! We are very excited to have her on board with us for the month of July. Be sure to stop by her BLOG and give her a shout out!

Here's some inspiration ..Check out the rest of the DT blogs to see more fabulous Red, White and Blue Wonderlandy projects...You can find them in my sidebar OR on the Oh, Alice! blog



for my card I have used a cute little image designed by the lovely Shell Barnard ... Shell is very talented.. she is the wonderful lady who designed my Mad for Markers website for me! Check out her blog/ stamps here!
Copic colours used: B93,95,97, R22, 27, 29, E31,33,35,37, 00, 11, R20, C1, 3 and 5

I followed the sketch over on Friday Sketchers for this card! What fun! Have not played along there for a while so it was great to be able to join in again.. and their DT have done some lovely work this week!!
