Oh, Alice! Chapter 35: "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Wonderland's Door"

"Alice laughed so much at this, that she had to run back into the wood for fear of their hearing her; and when she next peeped out the Fish-Footman was gone, and the other was sitting on the ground near the door, staring stupidly up into the sky.

Alice went timidly up to the door, and knocked.

`There's no sort of use in knocking,' said the Footman, `and that for two reasons. First, because I'm on the same side of the door as you are; secondly, because they're making such a noise inside, no one could possibly hear you.' And certainly there was a most extraordinary noise going on within--a constant howling and sneezing, and every now and then a great crash, as if a dish or kettle had been broken to pieces.

`Please, then,' said Alice, `how am I to get in?'

~ Chapter 6, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Hey everyone! It's a beautiful day here at Oh, Alice! and we are BACK with another challenge!
Have you ever felt like Alice? Not sure which door, window, or keyhole will be opened or closed next? Not sure which direction you're going but curiouser and curiouser about them all?

What a PERFECT opportunity to explore some new avenues,and walk through new doors we bring you at Oh, ALice this week. Thats right!
Your challenge this week is to create a card or project using a Door, Gate, or Keyhole.
Now, you can also get creative and do a gatefold technique, etc. As long as we can see it's a "Gatefold" or that there is a door, gate, or keyhole somewhere on your project! How FUN is this?

The best part? There's no time limit to play this week, so have fun and here's to opening lots of new doors in the future!

Sorry I'm late for this very important date!!! But here's my project :)
I've been wanting to create something more than just a card lately, but haven't had much time - well, to be honest, it's the patience that has been hiding from me, lol - to really go out of my comfort zone lately ;) But then I remembered how much fun I have when I created these mini-folders in the past! and just knew that I had to make one :) I actually created this a few weeks ago, but never had a chance to post it, until now ;)

I used one of my latest 6x6 sampler packs - Crate Paper's "School Spirit" and dusted off my very handsome Greeting Farm "My Guy Ian" Stamp Set and made this mini-folder! It's so quick, simple and super easy! I added a ribbon loop to make tying a knot or bow easier to stay in place...
I think I'll be creating a ton of these to add to gifts for the holidays! It's the perfect way to gift some of the kids photos, notes and gift cards :)

Here's the backside...

... and a peek of what the inside looks like...

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you likey!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend :*)
Card Details:
Ink(s): Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Copic Markers
