Oh Alice! Ch.33 DICTIONARY of Nonsense

Alice didn't dare to argue the point, but went on: `-- and I thought I'd try and find my way to the top of that hill -- '
`When you say "hill,"' the Queen interrupted, `I could show you hills, in comparison with which you'd call that a valley.'

`No, I shouldn't,' said Alice, surprised into contradicting her at last: `a hill can't be a valley, you know. That would be nonsense -- '

The Red Queen shook her head, `You may call it "nonsense" if you like,' she said, ` but I've heard nonsense, compared with which that would be as sensible as a dictionary!'

--Ch. 2: Through the Looking Glass

The challenge this week is to use TEXT in a NONSENSE way - not to read, but as a pattern in your card. Use a page from an old dictionary or other book, stamp a background text stamp or use a text-patterned paper in your creation. Link up your creations and the design team will stop by to do some CREATIVE READING as we look at your entries this week!

The Greeting Farm is our SPONSOR this week, and not only are we thrilled to have them again, the prize just got sweeter! There is a RUBBER SINGLE OF CHOICE up for grabs for this challenge AS WELL as the highly-sought after "Wonderland" digital stamp set!

Good luck to all who enter our little Challenge here in Wonderland!

Here is what I came up with for this week's challenge!!

This is the cutest darn bunny ever! LOVE him!
He is from the Alice in Wonderland set from The Greeting Farm.
I trimmed him out with oval nesties and mounted him on this
killer paper from Graphic 45's "Halloween in Wonderland" line.

The challenge was to use text in a different way.
I have had this old dictionary since I was a kid (eons ago!) and
was actually going to go against my hoarding nature and toss it out!
Yeah, I said it. T-o-s-s it out!
But, I quickly regained my senses and salvaged it.
I punched out flower shapes, aged them with distress ink and stacked them 
to form the flower. I added a pearl brad, crumple, crumple, and voila!
Then I punched out the word text and it's definition as a bit of a leaf for the fleur. 

I added this mushroom cluster to the inside of the card.


  1. WOW this is so bloomin brilliant, that flower is so damn cool and the backing paper - nice. Such a gorgeous creation x
