HELLO!

You might have noticed somewhere along the way that I like ALICE IN WONDERLAND??
Well..........the Oh Alice! challenge blog site has been a fun place to indulge that love but the BAD NEWS is it is closing its doors................but the GOOD NEWS is that one of the DT members.....LYNNE PHELPS.....has decided to take it over, move it to THE ALTERED ALICE blog and carry on with challenges. The other good news is that Lynne has asked me to be on the new DT......how could I refuse!! There will be a few changes....the main one being that the challenges will now be monthly instead of weekly with DT artwork spread across the month.
The last challenge on OH ALICE! is to make a HELLO or GOODBYE card.
 I used card letter stencils that I hinged togerther and then painted/stamped/doodled on them. Stamped the Alice characters seperately, coloured them and cut them out and added them to the letters.

 Details of a couple of the letters.
On a different subject I went to see BLACK SWAN last night..........it was in places scary, gruesome, beautiful but overall thought provoking.........I enjoyed it......unlike the bloke I overheard on the way out who said it was the worst film he had ever seen and he could not believe he had been made to sit through it! Just goes to prove we are not all the same.......thank goodness.........I would say I recommend it but it certainly was not a feel good/ easy film to watch.

FABULOUS, Sue and a big congrats! Can't imagine you weren't already on the Alice DT. You're perfect in every way as this card shows quite magnificently. My DH did okay with Black Swan and I loved it. Thought provoking, for sure! I dare say it's a chick flick. LOL Most men I know had the same reaction as the guy you overheard in the theater. xxD

Thanks for playing along with THE ALTERED ALICE!!!! Another perfect example of why I HAD to get you on the design team! LOVE the accordian stencil Hello. Every detail is fantastic! Love the olive and faded red color scheme, goes so well with the character of the stenciled letters. I think my favorite detail is the white doodled outline around the letters! You know, if you ever need to find a new home for any of these projects, I imagine I could see my way to helping you out, lol!!! ;-)

Lol, I don't think this is the Alice that I know and love............perhaps I should enter something anyway....
Btw, glad to see you are enjoying making 'Stuff for you'......it's not that easy is it? But I'm having fun with it anyway.......
