CCEE2040 ~ Mad Hatter Day!


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's a brand new month and our CCEE Stampers challenge hostess this month is Frances.
and as you may remember last week in my CCEE post, we are welcoming
Hazel from Handcrafted Expressions and Manal Habib from Miniscraft to our Design Team.

The 6th of October is Mad Hatter Day and the challenge this week ~ 
create a card inspired by the theme … hats, Alice In Wonderland, Mad Hatter. 

So let me tell you ....  I LOVE this week's theme!


My granddaughter, Alice, was named after Alice in Wonderland 
the second my daughter found out it was a girl :) 
Her mommy (my daughter) is a HUGE AIW fan ...
AND ... 
as if that wasn't crazy enough, Alice's birthday is October 6th ... Mad Hatter Day.
It was meant to be!

Okay, enough gushing ....

My card!
I've used a super old stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie called Gabrielle   
and I've had this stamp 10 years :/

The background was created by using another old school product - 
a Cuttlebug embossing folder in Argyle pattern.
I ran it thought a die cut first, and then the EB, and then watercolored it.

The sentiment is a computer generated one as the stamp doesn't have one
and I set is aside wonky, as with the entire card, because not much
makes sense in Alice in Wonderland!

 Be sure to stop by the CCEE Stampers blog today 
and see all the Mad Hatter cards
and link up yours, too, if you have one in the theme!

Big hugs, bigger blessings :)
