Let's get wordy with 'Oh Alice'....

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

I had so much fun making this card for my oldest DD's upcoming birthday. I stamped this image from my friend Angie- I think it's from TAC stamps and used some of my gorgeous new to me paper from Prima called Fairy Flora. With a name like that of course it had to come home with me! I stamped a sentiment from Unity stamps (Sept KOTM) and used some of my hoarded valentine's day paper that had a dictionary page about love to add my twisty words to my card.

Before I share why I added lots of words to my card I want to give LOTS of tea-toasting to our FABULOUS new October Guest at Tea: DONNA BUDZYNSKI! A VERY MERRY unbirthday to you, Donna! WELCOME!

So back to my 'wordy' card.....DT member Lynne is challenging us 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. F.U.N...!!
