Oh, Alice! Chapter 38: "Tickets Please!"

'moring! Please scroll down for my
Thanks much :)

`Tickets, please!' said the Guard, putting his head in at the window. In a moment everybody was holding out a ticket: they were about the same size as the people, and quite seemed to fill the carriage.
`Now then! Show your ticket, child!' the Guard went on, looking angrily at Alice. And a great many voices all said together (`like the chorus of a song,' thought Alice), `Don't keep him waiting, child! Why, his time is worth a thousand pounds a minute!
`I'm afraid I haven't got one,' Alice said in a frightened tone: `there wasn't a ticket-office where I came from." And again the chorus of voices went on. `There wasn't room for one where she came from. The land there is worth a thousand pounds an inch!'

-- Chapter 3, Through the Looking Glass

Greetings friends in Wonderland! We are FULL STEAM AHEAD into November and today's challenge is JUST the ticket! Our ride this week is sponsored by our own Tasha who is generously donating a $15 gift certificate to Stamping Bella (in honor of their cute new Alice stamp) which will be awarded to one randomly selected winning traveler!

But before we get started, there are some changes at our twisted tea party table! We are bidding farewell to longtime design team members Jen and Suzi, so please leave them some extra love as you visit their last Oh, Alice! DT posts. We will really miss their superb talents! Donna, our amazing October guest designer, is stepping up to the table so we are back to our twisted thirteen. Welcome Donna, we are so glad you are staying where it's always time for tea! Be sure to check back next week for to find out who our guest designer will be for the holiday season!

So, do you have YOUR ticket ready for a ride on the Wonderland Express? Our twisted sis Lynne is the conductor this week and she says you can't travel with Oh, Alice! if you don't show us your ticket! You can make a ticket, use a ticket stamp, use a real ticket. Use one ticket or a whole row of tickets! So hop on it and get YOUR ticket ready to take a journey through Wonderland!

I don't want to get left behind!!!
SO here's my ticket, ummm, I mean card, into Wonderland ;)

I think I might have went a bit overboard with my punch in making the whole 'ticket' card/look! but I love how it turned out! I added my 'story' ticket (by Tim Holtz) and a bit of 'Alice' ribbon that I've been hording for forever!!! :) A quick and simple card for anyone who needs a break from coloring, hee hee!!!  

BUT, I wanted to make sure that I had enough tickets to get on the 'Wonderland Train', hee hee! and decided to color up one of my newest adoptees...
Cheeky Rockabilly!

I looove her cheekiness style and attitude!!!
I added another Tim Holtz stub and used my Slice on some pretty October Afternoon (Daydreams?) papers and blinged it up with a few Prima Pearls...

Now, it's time for you to get those tickets ready so you can travel with us on the Wonderland Express! You don't want to be left behind as this train leaves the station, so enter your new creations by 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 12th! Good luck, or maybe we should say Bon Voyage, as we can't wait to see where your creations will take us!

AND don't forget to visit the Twisted DT for a peek at their amazing creations :)

WOW, Margie! TWO cards! I'm the conductor and I say you get to ride the Wonderland Express as far as you want to go!

The first card is FABULOUS - the neutral color scheme, the distress polka dot pattern, the POP of that fab ribbon and you can never go wrong when you start with kraft! LOVE it!

Your cheeky gal is so charming and your coloring is WONDERFUL! Love the colors and papers. I LOVE the way you used the ticket corner punch on everything - I did the same on my card, LOL! Thanks for the incredible job you did in meeting this challenge!
