Chapter 20: In My Country...

"Well, in our country," said Alice, still panting a little, "you'd generally get to somewhere else -- if you ran very fast for a long time, as we've been doing." 

"A slow sort of country!" said the Queen. "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!" 

(Through the Looking Glass, Chapter 2) 

Hello, friends!  Can you believe July is here already?  Such a fun time of year for summer fun...parades, BBQ's, you name it...it's THAT time of year!  

To honor our country's Independence day, with the 4th being right around the corner, we have a PATRIOTIC theme for you today!  WONDERLAND has gone red, white, and blue!  Yep, that's right!  

Call it inspiration, a color challenge....I guess it's really both!   Your mission this week is to use RED, WHITE and BLUE on your card or project!  In addition we have a WONDERFUL Sponsorship opportunity today.  Thank you SO much to EMILY from EAD Designs!  Emily has graciously offered the DT some wonderful Alice-themed stickers to use for our projects today.

Before we get to this week's challenge, we have a few FUN announcements to make!   Sadly we say goodbye to Jimmi this week.  We thank her for all her wonderfully twisty designs and will miss her at the tea table here.   We are THRILLED to announce at the same time, that Lynne Phelps has accepted a FULL TIME position here right at our twisted table.  Lynne's designs TOTALLY WOW'd us as our June Guest Designer and well, some things are JUST SO Alice that they're meant to be!  WELCOME LYNNE!

Also, as today is the first challenge of July, a BIG TWISTY welcome to EMMA EADS, our JULY GUEST!  We are very excited to have her on board with us for the month of July.   Be sure to stop by her BLOG and give her a shout out!

So cute, the simple style of sketch is perfect with the EAD stickers.

Lynne Phelps said...

GREAT card! I love the sketch - the focal image above the "line" is so well balanced by the sentiment on the opposite side under the line. Absolutely great! I also love it that the color scheme is so rich, with that fabby deep red and punch of bright blue! I couldn't get beyond strictly flag colors in my mind so I just ignored that part of the challenge, LOL!
