We're all mad here!

Happy hump day everyone!  Tonight we have a fun Science night at Rhalynn's school.  Kindergarteners, pizza and science experiments, how can we not have fun?!  Rhalynn is really looking forward to it. 

So today I have a great card to share with you.  After 6 attemps and countless images colored I finially got it.  I designed this card for the Sassy Studio Designs Alice in Wonderland Challenge.  I love Alice in Wonderland and I'm really excited about seeing Tim Burton's take which opens March 5th.  My fav characters are the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat.

The image is Sassy Mad Hatter digi from Sassy Studio Designs.  I printed her on PTI cardstock and colored her with my Triart markers.  So for the hat shaped card I traced the digi in my Make The Cut Software (first time I've used it) then got rid of everything but the hat.  I fiddled with it a little and sized it and then cut it with my Cricut.  The PP is from my Sugar Rush Collection, the hat band is on DCWV glitter paper.  I'm going to put tickets to the movie in it and give it to my Hubby so we can have a date night.

This is the picture I used for my inspiration.  Doesn't Johnny Depp make a fantastic Mad hatter!

I'm also excited to say that I got my very first blog award from Audrey at Cute and Some.
