Tea, anyone?


Welcome to the very special Make it Crafty Tea Party!!!
Today, I'm joining the fun with a collection of Make it Crafty fans from around the world,
serving you a delicious array of crafty delights to celebrate not only the magical release
of Alice in Wonderland, but also Make it Crafty's THIRD BIRTHDAY!!

What better way to celebrate than with a tea party full of Make it Crafty fans?

As you chase the White Rabbit down holes, through small doors, and around corners,
keep an eye out for hidden letters, and collect them along the way.
Simply decipher the 'question' and enter the answer at the end of the hop
for a chance to win the grand prize!

It wouldn't be a fun tea party without hidden prizes along the way.
Make sure you comment as you chase the rabbit, for a chance to win more prizes!

******************
Hopefully, you've found your way through the door from Linda,
but if you've just fallen down a hole, than you might want to start back at Zoe's blog.

******************

The guests were given the option to play with 6 images from the new collection,
and I chose to get creative with the Steampunk Caterpillar and the White Rabbit.  

 Absolem is one of my favorite Wonderland inhabitants.
I kind of doubt this is what Lewis Carroll had in mind,
but this Absolem is quite wonderful in all his Steampunkery.

Ya just gotta love a hookah smoking, Steampunking caterpillar!
I know I do!

This card gave me a chance to break out with my new TH dies, some
found washers and a copper tag for good measure.
This was a great image to create with!

Speaking of great images, here is the sweet White Rabbit.
I wanted to keep this one CAS to focus on the image.
Mission accomplished.

I added the sentiment in Gimp, and then used BG Copics 
to give the impression of white on the rabbit. I used CGrays
to give the illusion of white for the shirt and vest.
I always need a belated Birthday card, so this is perfect!

The fun doesn't stop here, so be sure to head through the next door 
in the hop which leads to Janice

Happy Hopping!!
