Oh, Alice! 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!

Here is my Text card :)

I used Miss Classy from The Greeting Farm for my card today... 
She reminds me of Alice trying so hard to be proper ;)
My papers are from October Afternoon's "The Thrift Shop" pad;
I had a lot of fun with my MFT Scalloped-Scallops Die-namic and added my 'text' dp as ruffles ;)

The Greeting Farm is 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 CHOICE up 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!
Happy WCMD and enjoy your weekend :)
