Oh Alice challenge and Baby Bud Designs....

"Hush-a-by lady, in Alice's lap!
Till the feast's ready, we've time for a nap.
When the feast's over, we'll go to the ball -
Red Queen, and White Queen, and Alice, and all!"

~ "Queen Alice", Through The Looking-Glass

We here at Oh Alice, hereby cordially invite you to meet Iracebeth the Red Queen of Crims and Mirana the White Queen. Iracebeth and Mirana are sisters who couldn't be more different: while the White Queen is kind and gentle and is loved by everyone, the Red Queen's answer to everything is "Off with their heads!"

To honor our Royal Highnesses, we challenge you to choose which Royal Court you would want to have rule over you, the Red Queen's or the White Queen's???

So the challenge this week, if you should choose to accept it, is to create a card/project that is either mostly white or mostly red.

This week's Oh, Alice challenge is being sponsored by Baby Bud Designs!
"The Baby Bud illustrations you see in the shop have been drawn ‘free hand’ by the artist and owner, Mary Anne Wainright. There is never any computer re-imaging involved. Their quirky little imperfections are what make them original, unique and whimsical and reminds the viewer that they were created from the heart."

I have always had a soft spot for Baby Bud designs as I know the creator- Mary Anne and I am good friends with her daughter Krista who is also on the Kraftin' Kimmie stamps DT. These little whimsical kids are unique and so fast to colour and dress up a card. I have quite of few of them and love to make cards for my nieces and nephews with them. I used some of my paper from Nikki Sivils and also one of their corduroy brads with my flower. I decided to side with the White Queen as you can tell by my principal colour of white. I went with the sentiment 'remember this moment' as childhood passes by so quickly. I still can't believe as I look at my own children how fast they have grown...and at times your heart twists as you remember them as tiny toddlers and watching them grow. Okay now that I have made myself all weepy hop on over to the Oh Alice challenge blog to see more of the DT creations and how you can play to win 2 digi's of your choice from Baby Bud Designs!
