oh, Alice...I'm MAD for MFT...

CHAPTER 17: Mad Watch...

(taken from the Disney film adaptation, 1951)

March Hare: Its going mad!

Alice: Oh, my goodness!

White Rabbit: Oh dear!

March Hare: It is going mad! Mad watch!

Mad Hatter: I don't understand, it's the best butter.

March Hare: Mad watch! Mad watch! Mad watch!

Mad Hatter: Oh, look! Oh my goodness!

March hare: There's only one way to stop a mad watch!

Mad Hatter: Two days slow, that's what it is. 

Greetings, everyone!  A VERY Merry Unbirthday to ALL!  Well, at least, that's the scene this excerpt from Disney's 1951 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland was taken from!   It's ALWAYS your unbirthday here in WONDERLAND :)

We are thrilled BEYOND WONDERLAND today to announce our sponsor this week, a company that we just adore:  MY FAVORITE THINGS!  We are so grateful to Kim and Jody for offering to sponsor our little challenge blog and with a HUGE prize, I might add!  It really WILL be someone's un-birthday!  MFT is offering a $25 Gift Certificate to the store PLUS a scalloped scallop die from their new Dienamics line!   HOW exciting is THAT?!?   

So, how can you enter to win?  For this week's challenge, we have a beautiful inspiration piece, found one the CraftStylish blog.  Actually, our Mad Hatter (ME!) liked it so much that she tried to track it down but to no avail so far!   The Mad Hatter NEEDS this piece, LOL!  That beautiful flower, steampunk vintage gorgeousness and all the classic timepiece elements to this are just GORGEOUS and we know it will make a FABULOUS inspiration challenge- two days slow or not!

Your mission this week? Show us YOUR take on this "Mad" watch.  You can use the colors, play off the time piece, blue flower, color combos, steampunk theme...the possibilities are ENDLESS, just like my love for all things Alice! 

Speaking of which, my card today uses the AMAZING new set from MFT "Costumes from Wonderland".   I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it and was so excited to use it for today's challenge!

For my take on the inspiration piece, I stuck to Kraft/blue colors, found some Webster's Pages DP that had the clock on it, and added a blue flower similar to this one here :)  I LOVE the way this came out, I must say ;0)   It's full of my muchness and the things I LOVE! 

And now, I cannot WAIT to see what YOU create! To enter to WIN this awesome prize from MFT, just have your entry in using In Linkz by Friday, June 18th at 8pm CST!  Have a VERY MERRY time creating!

See you next week, everyone!
