Chapter 22: Dancing under the Sea...

"Will you walk a little faster?" said the whiting to the snail;
"There's a porpoise right behind us and he's treading on my tail!
See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
They are waiting on the shingle, will you come and join the dance?`
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you-WILL you join the dance?" 

Hello everyone! 
{{{[PLEASE scroll down for some IMPORTANT Greeting Farm BLOG HOP info!!!}}}


Greetings from here in Wonderland...or maybe today it's UNDERland? As in Under the Sea, perhaps ;)So, today's challenge at OH, ALICE! involves all things sea-worthy and we at Oh, Alice are challenging YOU to create a card or project using sea life! Turtles, whales, dolphins are fabulous as are other sea creatures as in merfolk and those deep, dark creatures you sometimes hear about but seldom see.... the possibilities are as endless as the ocean itself!We also have a FUN prize for you this week! One lucky winner will receive a Sweet Pea Rubber Stamp courtesy of Oh, Alice! These stamps are large and BEAUTIFULLY detailed and we just happened to have one 'swimmin' around!' Will YOU be the lucky winner? ;)

My card today uses the first Sweet Pea image I ever owned, "Dark Royalty" and I absolutely LOVE her!  She's just gorgeous, isn't she?   I added some Glossy Accents to her fin and my camera is acting but included another close up of it.  That green trim?  Webster's Pages and it sort of reminded me of seaweed, LOL.

Be sure to stop by the Oh, Alice blog to see all the details of the challenge and to add your card using In Linkz!  See you under the sea!
