CHAPTER 33: DICTIONARY of Nonsense...

"Alice didn't dare to argue the point, but went on: `-- and I thought I'd try and find my way to the top of that hill -- ' 

`When you say "hill,"' the Queen interrupted, `I could show you hills, in comparison with which you'd call that a valley.' 

`No, I shouldn't,' said Alice, surprised into contradicting her at last: `a hill can't be a valley, you know. That would be nonsense -- ' 

The Red Queen shook her head, `You may call it "nonsense" if you like,' she said, ` but I've heard nonsense, compared with which that would be as sensible as a dictionary!' 
--Ch. 2: Through the Looking Glass

Greetings from Wonderland!  Before we commence this week's challenge, LOTS of tea-toasting to our FABULOUS new October Guest at Tea:  DONNA BUDZYNSKI!   Donna's amazing work caught our eye a while back and we are thrilled to have her joining us!   A VERY MERRY unbirthday to you, Donna!  WELCOME!

The challenge this week is to use TEXT in a NONSENSE way - not to read, but as a pattern in your card. Use a page from an old dictionary or other book, stamp a background text stamp or use a text-patterned paper in your creation.  Link up your creations and the design team will stop by to do some CREATIVE READING as we look at your entries this week!

I used the BRAND NEW "Miss Anya Lounge" stamps to create my card today, using the Club Anya and Friends sketch challenge:  

My text paper is from October Afternoon.  Be sure to check out the Club Anya & Friend's challenge too, today as we play w/ one last sketch from Pam and Jen takes over as our Saturday Sketch gal!  Hooray for sketches-my fave kind of card challenge :)

The Greeting Farm just so happens to be our SPONSOR this week, and not only are we thrilled to have them again, the prize just got sweeter!  There is a RUBBER SINGLE OF CHOICEup for  grabs for this challenge AS WELL as the highly-sought after "Wonderland" digital stamp set!

Nonsense you say?   Believe it!  You have through Friday, October 8th at 8pm CST to enter to WIN the above prizes!  We'll announce our lucky winner on Saturday, October 9th with the next challenge here at Oh, Alice!

Good luck to all who enter our little Challenge here in Wonderland!
