I'm late, I'm late .....

Morning all.
The weather is really weird again. When I went to the shops on Tuesday  lunchtime it was a chilly 9'C but on the way to my son's in the late evening it was 12'C, really odd. As I write this the sun is blazing and outside it is quite pleasant. Mind not as strange as the 15'C on Boxing Day a few years ago. Still it wouldn't be Britain if we had settled weather and we wouldn't have anything to talk about!
Anyway, over at Cardz4Galz we have a new challenge for you.

FAIRY TALES/ FANTASY

Here is my inspiration card for you.


My socially active Grandson was off to yet another party at the weekend and his Mum asked if I would make a card for him to give that was linked to the theme of the party- Alice in Wonderland, fantasy I think.
That really got me scratching my head but I found this free kids colouring image online so decided to use him as it was a card for a little boy to give to a girl!
The layout is one of my favourites, using a snippet of NitWits DP in the stash with images of teacups and teapots on a dark purple background card. The embossed center is a Tri Boss folder by Crosscut which gives a really deep and clear impression of timepieces.
The White Rabbit was coloured with Copics then fussy cut and I added a computer generated sentiment, cut with a MFT banner die. Apparently the recipient squealed with delight when she opened it, so I guess she liked it!
For more fantastical fairytale inspiration check out the rest of the DT and why not join us this time.
