CHAPTER 23: Ravens and Writing Desks...

 
 
CHAPTER 23: Ravens and Writing Desks...


The Hatter opened his eyes very wide on hearing this; but all he said was, "Why is a raven like a writing-desk?"
"Come, we shall have some fun now!" thought Alice. "I'm glad they've begun asking riddles. — I believe I can guess that," she added aloud.
"Do you mean that you think you can find out the answer to it?" said the March Hare.
"Exactly so," said Alice.
"Then you should say what you mean," the March Hare went on.
"I do," Alice hastily replied; "at least--at least I mean what I say--that's the same thing, you know."


Hello everyone!


We are ready to FLY with this week's challenge here at Oh, Alice!   


This week, we challenge you to use BIRDS on your card or papercrafting project!   We may never know the answer to the riddle above, but while we're pondering that and life's little mysteries we may as well make a great card or two in the process, right?
 
Hope you will join us this week by adding your to the InLinkz on the Oh, Alice! website.  Can't wait to see what birdyful creations you come up with. 
 
 


My card uses the Play Date Cafe Challenge #39 and Mojo Monday Sketch #148 
with the Wonderland Collage plate from Artistic Outpost.

Looks like your mojo is on steroids, what a fabulous card! The sketch and the color scheme go so well together and all the details on your card just WORK! Love the muted clocks stamped in two of the quadrants, and what more impossible bird could you find than a DODO to couple with this WONDERful sentiment? I also love it that you left the Dodo uncolored, the beautful line art image perfectly suits the neutrals of this lovely and elegant card! Bravo!
