Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge...Fairy Tales...and one more trip down the RABBIT HOLE...

I'm trying to think of a way that one will segue nicely into the other...for it just so happens that today's Kraftin' Kimmie challenge is all about Fairy Tales...and when I think of Fairy Tales...I of course think of Alice.

I'm having a blast as January Guest Designer for Kraftin' Kimmie and couldn't wait to get coloring ;)  That being said, I used Gabrielle on today's card as she is definitely Alice-esque and adorable, at that.  All ready for tea...all ready for another trip down the RABBIT hole...

You see, this is where it gets a bit hard for me....but I have some Oh Alice news.  Today will be our last challenge as Oh, Alice will be closing its doors.  However, one of our DT members, Lynne, has graciously offered to turn her blog,  'The Altered Alice", into the new home of Oh, Alice.  I am truly grateful for the one-year run we've had :)  I won't be doing much in the way of challenge blogs anymore as I really want to concentrate on TGF, Unity, and Taylored Expressions, not to mention getting to play with some pretty fun twine for the next 12 months ;)   And there are SCS challenge...neglected stamps...you guys know the drill ;)

It's simply time-and although I'm a bit sad because I love Alice so very much, Alice has a permanent place in my heart and in my dreams more so than on paper...and I'm ok with that :)  Still, it's hard to let something go-silly as it sounds, I know it's "just" a blog...but still...hard to let it go.

My card today, in addition to the adorable Gabrielle, uses Nikki Sivils paper.  Nikki is once again our AWESOME sponsor this week and I cannot thank her enough for being SO, SO super generous, not only to the players but also to our  DT.  Be sure to check out the PRIZE this last week of Oh, Alice and how you can enter!

Thanks to EVERYONE who helped make Oh, Alice a success and to my AMAZING DT, the "Twisted Sisters"...you will always be just as twisty to me <3  hee hee.

Be sure you stop by the Kraftin' Kimmie stamps blog to see what else the Krafty Gurlz have come up with for you and also to see what this week's prize is!  TONS of fun!

In other news, today as you read this I have MUCH to be happy and excited about, too!  My cousin/BFF Kim is in town and today we are meeting up w/ my friend Suzanne Dean for her Copic class her in Nashville and then tomorrow we'll be showing her around.  She is HOPING to run into Tim McGraw..we'll keep our fingers crossed, LOL!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone...it's time for one last trip down the Rabbit Hole... :)

Very cute card, but I'm sad to see the Oh, Alice come to an end. Glad that Lynne has decided to keep it going and will still be stalking you ;-)
