Hauneted Design House 100th Challenge Blog Hop featuring Varying Visages of Vincent

We're here at Haunted Design House, celebrating our 100th challenge with an homage to the Master of Macabre, Vincent Price, who would have been 100 this year. Our Masterful Mistress has conjured up some fabulous Blog Candy-Corn with many ways to win, so be sure to pop over to Haunted Design House for the deets. If you are already following the blog hop, you should have arrived from the fabulous Sultana of the Sinister, Lynx's Blog. And BTW, there are only 6 stops on this blog hop (besides HDH) so there's no excuse not to hop along.

My project is a coffin box. On the front is a picture of Vincent's final Life Mask (yeah, I know he looks dead, that's why I used it) done during the production of Dead Heat found HERE at The Haunted Studio. The logo is newly designed by Pixascope, who worked alongside the Vincent Price Estate to launch the media celebration for Vincent's 100 year legacy. The fancy shtuff on top of the coffin was cut with my Cricut, using the Happy Hauntings cartridge. Actually, he was creamated, his ashes scattered at sea, but had he chosen this alternative, you'da bet he would have been buried in STYLE, don'tcha think?!

The fabulous portrait inside was done by Chainsaw-Zombie found HERE on Deviant Art. I've added roses by Recollections. The inside of the lid features a most fitting quote by Mr. Price, himself. Sooo true and I'm sure he'd be pleased! Now be on your way to our Devious Digital Demoness, Susan's Blog and prepare to be amazed. And don't forget to leave a comment at each of the Minion's Blogs for a chance for Barb's Blog Candy Extraordinaire and play along with this special Macabre Monday Challenge for even MORE chances to win!

Wanna Know a Secret? and BBTB2 Blog Hop Winner

I woke up in sort of a lovey dovey mood this morning and wanted to make a card "just because". I've got plenty of DT stuff to get done, but I just wasn't sure I could get going on that until I did a little "quickie". It just so happened I'd printed out the Sexy Ladies #1 cut outs sheet from Peggy Loves Vintage recently, and this little flirtatious cutie caught my eye. Perfect! I used the fun retro dot DP from Cosmo Cricket Early Bird line and cut a window straight through the mat layers with my Nestie hearts. I then used the scalloped hearts on the dotty mat to make a frame. I printed the sentiment on a smaller heart and added a gorgeous silk bow.

I decided to fussy cut her out so I could use the off cuts of my hearts behind her. HeeHee, she's a cheeky one! I had a ball making this for my Sweetie. Hope he loves it! Peggy's images couldn't be cuter, so I hope you'll take a look at the huge variety of vintage images Peggy has on her store. There really is something for any occasion, and for no occasion at all. LOL

And now the moment you've all been waiting for (for 2 whole days because I've been a terrible SLUG!)...The Winner of the $40.00 Gift Certificate to CUSTOM CROPS is.........NO. 32!!!!!

Tiddly Inks Meets The Shabby Tea Room

It's Fabulous Inky Friday at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog where we feature amazing creations not only by the DT, but from our superbly talented participants as well. Our prize winner from the previous week is also announced, so don't miss out. Although this is not my team's week to necessarily follow our challenge, I was poking around some fave challenge blogs and came across the fab inspiration photo (see below) and yellow pink and green color challenge at The Shabby Tea Room, with the challenge title of Relax and Enjoy. I immediately thought of the Tiddly image "Take Me Away" and chose to follow the Tags or Tickets Challenge at Tiddly Inks as well.

Okay, it's a pretty literal interpretation of The Shabby Tea Room challenge, but I couldn't help myself.

And Relax and Enjoy, isn't that what soaking in the tub is all about? Take Me Away is colored with Copics and cut and matted with Nesties. I've added acrylic adhesive bubbles and used Glossy Accents in between.

The gorgeous papers are Graphic 45's From Baby to Bride collection. I've added shabby touches like the heart shaped doily, crinkle seam binding from the Prairie Bird Boutique(thanks Steph, lovin' this stuff!) and this lovely rose from Recollections. The tickets are Tim Hotz and couldn't be more perfect. Don't all girls dream and wish to be taken away sometimes?

TOFF Spots and Dots Challenge

This week's challenge at The Octopode Factory Friday Challenges is Spots and Dots. The dotty paper you see was my inspiration and I've used it before with an Octopode image (HERE). I first tried to do my own version of the paper on a tag by inking my craft mat and spraying and wiping, then pouncing with different things and even embossing, but the colors ran together a bit more than I liked, so I just ended up cutting a partial circle and mat with my Spellbinders Grand circles so most of it is covered up. One of these days I'll get the hang of this mixed media stuff, but today is not that day. LOL I got the idea to use Cleo the Clowness, from the Whimsicle Circus set, for this challenge from CuddlyBunny's Blog as she had used Ringo the Ringmaster, which reminded me that dots and the circus go very well together. So, I think, do clowns and umbrellas so I cut the back of an umbrella lantern and stuck it on.

I've added acrylic dots to Cleo's nose and cheeks and a few here and there over the dots on the paper. I curled the ribbon using a technique I've explained HERE on the Custom Crops website. BTW, if you haven't already, you can still comment on my BBTB2 Blog Hop post for a chance to win a $40 gift certificate to Custom Crops. WooHoo! I'll be using Random Org to choose tomorrow (when I get around to it. LOL) so hurry!

Bah! Humbug! Beads and Whimsicle Wednesdays Use Your Scraps Challenge

Wow, my DH has been gone backpacking for 4 days and I really thought I'd be crafting up a storm but I sort of got lost in other things. I went to the Farmer's Market, I gardened, I chatted with friends, I cleaned house, I did laundry. What got into me? But I finally managed to do a really CAS card for the Bah!Humbug! Beads challenge. The only difficult part of this card was stringing the beads because the eye of the tapestry needle I used didn't want to go through the Alpha Beads. I ended up using pliers to pull, which finally did it. I planned to play along with the current Whimsicle Wednesday Use Your Scraps Challenge, as well. I always have white card stock of various sizes all over my table from digis and computer generated sentiments, border punches, etc, so that was a cinch! The red piece had been knocking around for weeks and had all sorts of junk cut out of it, but thankfully, there was space left over for a 4 3/4 " square. The embossed wreath is a Cuttlebug folder and the doves, a Martha Stewart punch. P.S. the red ribbon the beads are strung on is a scrap too.

I popped the wreath and the doves (which I punched once in white and once in red to create a bit of a shadow) and that was it. Im also entering this in the Christmas Cards All Year 'Round July Challenge which is to do a card that is mostly white and the Winter Wonderland Holly and Ivy Challenge because if you look closely at the embossing, you'll see that there are holly leaves in the wreath. Be sure to stop by all of these fab challenge blogs to see the wonderful inspiration by the DT's.

BBTB2 Sweet Treats Ice Cream Cone and Blog Hop

Morning everybody! It's the last Monday of the month, and you know what that means. It's the BBTB2 BLOG HOP and my super sweet and talented friend, Maria, has chosen the ice cream cone from Sweet Treats for our challenge. Hopefully you've arrived from dear Carole's super inspiring blog, but if not, you may like to start at BBTB2, so you don't miss a thing. I was dying to try the ice cream cone box from the new Sweet Tooth Boxes cart. Isn't it fun!? I've embossed the bottom of the come with the Cuttlebug Tiny Mosaics Folder and the top with the 5x7 folder that came with the Give a Hoot companion set. You need to turn the scallop folder sideways and emboss in sections for this, so I had to use my Grand Caliber for it to fit. BTW, you need an extra adaptor plate to use your embossing folders with this machine. If you use the embossing plate that comes with the machine and try to force it, you'll break your machine. Yup, I did! (Note to self, read the instructions)

I'm not the greatest on determining the size of how boxes will turn out (even using DS, as in this case), especially when they are in 3 sections like this one. I didn't want it teeny so I went with the largest size I could fit on a 12x12 mat, which was 11". Let me tell ya, it's one huge honkin' box! I suppose it's meant to fit a cupcake (or is it just a truffle?) Anyway, you could definitely fit a cupcake in the center of this one, for sure. This is what the inside looks like. The usable space is only the top section, and at about 9 1/4 " to top (minus the cherry) I'm not so sure about the stability without weighting the bottom.

The top of the cone looked boring to me, so I've added a chocolate rim by cutting the top of the middle section in brown (by moving it off the page in DS you don't waste another whole sheet)
and punching the bottom with my MS Drippy Goo. I added real sprinkles by running some Terrifically Tacky Tape around it and dipping it in. Gluing sprinkles makes the colors run. I sprayed the ice cream with adhesive and sprinkled MS extra fine glitter to give it a frosty feel. I still thought the top of the cone looked a bit plain, so I added the "Sweet" sentiment, which is also from the Sweet Treat Boxes cart.

I've made the tag using the flat bottomed cone from page 34 to match and embossed it like the box. Remember, you don't have to use the exact cut to play along with us at BBTB2. Just make a new project using an ice cream cone and you're good to go. Now hop along to see what yummy treat Mona has in store for you, but before you do, be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win a $40.00 gift certificate to Custom Crops. They're having a super summer sale right now, so that should go a long long way. Loads of Cricut carts on sale, including Sweet Treats, HERE. I'll be announcing the winner next Friday, so be sure and stop back by.

Edit: I've been reading some of my comments and I wan to to clarify that the Ice Cream cone Box is from the new Sweet Tooth Boxes, not Sweet Treats. Only the Tag is from Sweet Treats.

Macabre Monday Out! Out Damn Spot

It's time for another Macabre Monday at HDH and this week our challenge is Out! Out Damn Spot. Create and dark and macabre project that features spatter, splatter, drops or drips. It doesn't have to be bloody (but mine of course is). But there are plenty of things creepy, drippy, gooey, oozing things that can go SPLAT! I've used the Simply Betty Burton-Weenie stamp, Pipper and turned her into a prom queen a la "Carrie". She's colored with Copics and has a Darice crown and making Memories Vintage Findings bouquet. The bucket of blood raining down on her is a freebie from Tiddly Inks HERE that I've resized and recolored in my PrintMaster Pro program and printed on transparency and I've done the same with the blood spatter on the floor which is actually another TI Ink Spot background that comes with the Love Hurts Image (that I can't seem to find right now). The blood spatter mat is from a MS Halloween mat pad and the window is cut with my Nesties Mega Ovals Large. The sentiment is compter generated and cut with Nesties Labels Ten. The flourish behind is a Cricut scrap cut that I've trimmed by hand.

Across the top I've added more blood with the MS Drippy Goo punch and then some corners with the MS Gothic Fence corner punch. The mat and transparency layer are popped to allow room for the crown and flowers and the sentiment and flourish are as well. The rest of the Minions have rocked this challenge so be sure to take a look at HDH and why not play along?

Tea for Toes

Here's another take on the Tea Things challenge at The Altered Alice. I'd been thinking about this for awhile. This is actually one of a pair of altered slippers I'd made for a girly pajama party get together at the gift shop in our local nursery awhile back. There was a slipper decorating contest and of course I participated. My other slipper had a martini glass on the toe and I did win first prize. When I saw the Alice challenge I thought of the tea cup slipper and decided to add things to make it more "Alice".

I have a mini deck of "Alice " playing cards and chose appropriate images to add to the ivy vines. Also the key to Wonderland.

I polished an old silver spoon that doesn't go to any set and added it on the side. This card has the Hatter shoving the dormouse into the teapot.

Fortunately he's escaped and managed to climb into a cup with a tea bag (Earl Grey Double Bergamot...YUMMMMM!!!)

Drink me? Gladly! Once the dormouse gets out of there.

I felted the dormouse myself. Every seen felting tools? Those 3 sharp needles are pounced over and over into your fiber of choice (usually wool roving) until you get the shapes you want. However (I'm gonna warn you now, stop reading if you're the squeemish type because I've gotten a load of EEEEEWWWWWW!!! reactions) this dormouse was felted out of Jezebel's fur. LOL There are wads of it after Daddy combs her and I thought it was a perfectly logical although somewhat ironic to use it to make the dormouse. (Actually, I was collecting it to felt a replica of Jezzie for her to give to Daddy for Father's day but he was so totally grossed out by the idea, I didn't finish it. I certainly didn't tell Jezzie I made a MOUSE with her hair or she'd have had a fit!) But honestly, it's not like I stuffed a pillow with it.

Here's a side view. See, it really is a slipper. That brown thing off the back it winds around my ankle to keep it on my foot. Tea for Toes. I would have taken a pic with my foot in there, but I didn't shave my legs today. LOL (OOps, was that TMI?) There's still time to join in with The Altered Alice challenge for this month. These are loads of fun and the Design Team and the participants are super inspirational. If you love Alice, it's a must!

TOFF Tell Me a Story Challenge

Okay, so could I be any later? The new challenge at TOFF is up already and here I am. I couldn't miss it though so... I have to admit I'm an Octopode Factory junkie. Seriously, Lily could retire at age 17 on what I've bought from her store. I love each and everything she does and my biggest probelm with her "Tell Me a Story" challenge was deciding which images to use. Then Dh wanted to go out to lunch. Hmmm...he's leaving on a 4 day backpacking trip so...I'm late AGAIN! Obviously, I've used the Octopode Factory Wizard of Oz images along with Whimsicle Dream Castle and Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I collected and read all of the Oz books as a child and still have them. I used the Spellbinders Grand Labels Four to make a wall hanging.

The special sentiment is spelled out in Alpha Beads and a button heart. The yellow brick road is a freehand cut, embossed with the Tim Holtz Bricked folder, and some doodling.

There's a bit of dimension too. The TOFF challenge this next week is Spots and Dots. I hope to do better with the time factor, but sometimes there are not enough hours in the day. Still happy to have completed it, though. Octopode is a fave of my BFF. This one's for you. xxx

Woo Hoo! My Third for ADFD

I still can't believe I've completed three! Here's my third and final offering for the A Day For Daisies 300 member CDAC party. I've had so much fun with this challenge. The free images were just adorable (scroll down for my earlier post from today and the first from Saturday) and I actually managed to color two of them today, with Copics, of course. This one is all girly and sweet. It makes me think of a first birthday card because of the single candle so I used the DCWV Nana's mat stack. The image is cut with my oval Nesties and the mat is the Crowned Ovals inked with Smeared Lipstick Distress Ink.

I popped the mat and image for dimension and added punched photo corners (EK Sucess).

The ribbon is from Prairie Bird Boutique (thanks Steph!) and the little bear charm was a bargain from M's and actually has a clip that you can detach and put on a bracelet. Too cute! If you've never visited the A Day For Daisies Store, you must. The images are just precious and there's something for everyone. If you prefer Etsy, you can buy them HERE too. I'm also entering this in The Shabby Tea Room's So Charming Challenge. Now it's time to rest my eyes. We've still not figured out the right contact prescription for both far and near and I have to wear readers over my contacts to color. It's a bitch being old!

Another A Day For Daisy Card

I'm playing along with the ADFD 300 member celebration on CDAC and this is the second card I've done. Members had the chance to download as many as 3 sweet images and are making cards for a chance to win prizes. I really love A Day For Daisy digis and these freebies were especially cute. I might have missed the party had I not subscribed to the ADFD blog by email, so if you love ADFD, I suggest you do. I knew exactly what paper I wanted to use when I saw this image. It's an oldie from DCWV and thought it would be cute for a boy. I colored the image with Copics (so much easier when you've chosen your paper FIRST) and used my Nesties Circles and Beaded Circles for the frame. Both are inked a bit with Distress.

The stars are also Nesties and I added some punched photo corners (EK Success) for balance. I popped a little bit for dimension and the pretty adhesive beads are by K&Co. I'm really enjoying this birthday celebration and it's fun seeing what others have done with the same images you are using. You can take a look HERE. I'm also entering it in the Cute Card Thursday Going Round in Circles Challenge.

Tiddly Inks Nature Movie Challenge

This week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog we're continuing our movie theme with Nature Movies. Now, don't panic, we've sort of broadened the scope here to include just about anything with flowers and fairies, etc., as you'll see from the gorgeous examples by my teamies. I , of course, being one to ALWAYS follow the rules to the letter (HA!), chose the nature documentary "The Bear". I went all CAS here, which as you know, is quite the departure from my norm, but I thought Father Bumble Bear (available HERE as part of the Bumble Bears Mega pack where you can get the WHOLE family at a super bargain) or HERE as an individual digi in The Tiddly Inks Basement , looked super fine as is, without a bunch of "shtuff" when I plunked him and his little cubby on top of one of the colored papers that are part of the Flower Garden Set. Besides a number of cool background colored sheets, you also get the adorable flower garden (inspired by Christy's own daughter's work) to color yourself. If you're interested in seeing what the Flower Garden looks like colored with Copics, you can check out my card HERE. I've added 3 tiny buttons, a computer generated sentiment, and a half mat to a premade A2 card and that was it! Looks like a good male card to me and you know they don't like a whole lot of foofala.

The simple bears were perfect for practicing my Copic blending skills (and I do need LOTS more practice) but I suggest, when you need some help, to check out the sample cards Christy features on the SHOP. At the bottom of each of the digis are sample cards using that image to get your mojo flowing. WooHoo! And one other little trick I thought I'd pass on, when fussy cutting an image without leaving any border, try running your marker around the very edge of your image afterwards, to camouflage any less than perfect work. Now go and see the gorgeous work by the rest of the Tiddly Inkers, and Christy may just have some freebies for you today. Don't miss out! OOOh, and I almost forgot, there's still time to play our I Spy game (directions HERE) and take advantage of the 15% off sale going on at Tiddly Inks and Make IT Crafty through July 21.

BBTB2 Jolly Holidays Penguin Cut and Bah! Humbug! Shaped Card Challenge

Happy Monday everyone! Time for another fun challenge at BBTB2, this time chosen by our oh so talented sister, Melissa. Our challenge this week is the cute penguin with the umbrella from the Jolly Holidays cartridge but any penguin with any umbrella will do. Now you don't have to do a Christmas card, (wait 'til you see some of the uber creative things my teamies have come up with!) but I did, because I wanted to also enter it in this week's Bah!Humbug! challenge which is Shaped Cards. I designed my card in DS using the snowflake from Accent Essentials as the base. Seems like I always come back to that one. The penguin base is welded to the shadow of the snowflake at sort of an angle so he's look like he's flying through the air with his umbrella. He's a pretty simple little guy so I decided to add a few more snowflakes (also from Accent Essentials) to jazz up the card a bit.

Not quite as many layers as usual, because the cuts on Jolly Holidays has no shadows, but I did glue the umbrella around the top and side edges and pop the center so it sort of looks like it's open (which doesn't seem to show in the pic). There's a little embossing, doodling, adhesive pearls and a twine bow, and that's pretty much it. All in all, I still think it turned out pretty cute. Now go have a look-see at the fab creations by the rest of the BBTB2 DT and remember you have two weeks to complete the challenge with a "new" card, please. And why not check out the fabulous Bah!Humbug! challenges as well? Always super inspiration and fun there and for once, there's still time to enter because I'm not getting my project in just under the wire. LOL


We interrupt our regularly scheduled Macabre Monday challenge with a special Belated Birthday Bash for our dear sister Minion Lynx (AKA Black Dragon). Lynx's b-day was yesterday but we decided to surprise her today with a very special Birthday Celebration. Lynx's contributions to the team are truly breathtaking and phenomenal so be sure to check out HDH and her BLOG to view some of her recent contributions. She is a true lover of all things POE so I couldn't help but use the Smeared Ink Quoth the Raven set to make her card. I used 4 stamps from the fabulous set and added birthday hats from Scrolls Work (alas, just gone out of business) and a computer generated sentiment of my own. Being the "senior" members of the team, I didn't think my little joke would be taken with offense. Did it, Lynda? All in fun, hon. XX

Anyway, the fab frame is a Cuttlebug Emboss Plus Brocade Window folder that has been inked within an inch of it's life with Distress and the whole thing popped to make an almost shadow box effect. The lovely jeweled flourishes are by Recollections. Hoping your birthday was a fab one, Lynx. Loads of love from all of us at Haunted Design House. I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamps Anything Goes Challenge because, who wouldn't with such a fab prize?

A Day For Daisies CDAC 300 Member Party

Just a quickie this morning because I just couldn't pass up the freebies for the 300 Member Party for A Day For Daisies on CDAC. I adore the ADFD images and subscribe to their newsletter, visit their blog and have purchased a number of their digi stamps. Tammy has such a sweet and unique style and I thank my friend Lisa, who does fabulous work on their DT, for introducing them to me. I can't believe this is the first time I've done a challenge cardfor ADFD. Not enough hours in the day! I've used the Happy Birthday Tower and filled in the tags and added a sentiment with my Printmaster Pro program. At first I printed it with "yummy" on the tags, but then thought it would make a cute thank you card too. (Although I guess with this sentiment it could really be used for anything.) I've colored it with Copics and used a silver gel pen for the cupcake stand. The DP is from the Lemonade 6x6 pad by Basic Grey. Now I better get back to my DT stuff, but I sure hope you have a chance to check out the fun at the ADFD party.

TOFF Time Challenge

Here I am, almost LATE again for The Octopode Factory Friday challenge. How fitting that the challenge would be "Time". I thought about it all week but had lots of other stuff to do. So many possibilities. But today was sort of bad day and this is what I came up with. I used Steampunk Violet and gave her some wings from Kenny K's Xmas Accessories. The background stamp is from The Cutting Cafe, the clouds cut on my Cricut from Paper Pups. The sentiment is computer generated with some Alpha Bead sarcasm. HA!

Mix 'n Match Victorian Steampunk Release with Make it Crafty and Tiddly Inks

It's finally here, the day we've been waiting for. The collaborative Victorian Steampunk release from Tiddly Inks and Make it Crafty is a reality and wait 'til you see all of the fab new images. For my card I've used Steampunk Flying Machine from Make it Crafty and the adorable Tanker Fairy from Tiddly Inks. I've colored the flying machine with metallic gel pens and Copics and cut it out as if it's in a cloud and popped it on a mat embossed with the Cuttlebug Gears folder.

Tanker Fairy is colored with Copics and fussy cut and popped on the wing. Could she be any cuter?

I've added some metal gears from Tim Holtz and tiny tag Nostalgique stickers by Rebecca Sower for Sticko. They're popped and I've added adhesive beads. Inspiration abounds on the Landing Page HERE where you can view more samples and find out how to play our fun game of I Spy. There's even a coupon code for 15% off the new release stamps for 1 week only! Woo Hoo! See ya there! I'm also entering this in the Gears, Cogs and Watch Bits Challenge at Gingersnaps Creations.

Bah! Humbug! Mice Challenge

EEEk! Humbug Hall is filled with MICE (or meeces as the humbuggers like to call them)! That's the challenge this week at Bah!Humbug! Bet you know where this one's going, eh? Goliath insisted on being the star of this simple card. Anybody tired of him gifting us with these? Yeah, me too! Anyway, the Santa hat is from a Kenny K Xmas Accessories digi. The mice are MS punches and the "Night Before Christmas" DP is by My Mind's Eye. Could it be more perfect? The frame was cut with my Nesties and there ya go, easy peasy. Be sure to check out the sweet mice cards by the B!H! team. Bet they weren't expecting one like this. LOL

Hermoine Meets The White Rabbit

Oh what fun challenges are going on at The Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and The Burtonesque Dolls! First of all, our TI challenge is Reel Me In. Design a project inspired by a Summer or Scary movie. Then, at The Burtonesque Dolls, the challenge is to use a "Potterish" character and put them in a Burton movie. I had plenty of ideas for both, but when Christy released the new Wizardette, how perfectly these two challenges came together. I used the PNG of Wizardette and printed her directly over a movie poster from Alice in Wonderland. I flipped her and stretched her a bit to cover the movie advertisement in the upper right corner and still have her standing on the tea table. I don't do alot of digital work (other than printing my images) so this was very exciting to me. (Yeah, I'm easily impressed. LOL) I left her partially off the poster and cut around her. The whole thing is mounted on an 8x8" page from Graphic 45's Halloween in Wonderland.

I honestly hadn't a clue how to color her, so I followed my DT sister Jen's lead (although not nearly as well as she did). Jen had actually requested the image and Christy was happy to oblige. Thank you both for that! I love her! I used a Sassy Studio Designs sentiment. Hermoine seems a little perplexed as to exactly who this rabbit is. Yikes, a spell gone wrong?

Another Sassyland Sentiment for The White Rabbit. Could it be more perfect?

Not a whole lot of dimension here, but that's okay because I think I'm gonna frame it. Go take a look at the fab creations by the Tiddly Inkers as well as those by The Burtonesque Dolls. Inspiration abounds! I had a ball with these challenges, and so will you! I'm also entering it in The Altered Alice Tea Things Challenge. I can't tell you how fabulous the projects are over there. And not just the amazing designers! I'm humbled and a teeny bit intimidated each time I go look, but of course, loving all things Alice, I can't stay away.

And don't forget to come back on Thursday for the exciting Victorian Steampunk Collaborative Release by Tiddly Inks AND Make it Crafty. There's more info HERE, along with sneak peeks and a FREEBIE! You don't want to miss this!
