Oh, Alice! Chapter 41: Off With Their Heads!!!

I'm sorry I'm late with my post for today!!!
Please don't "off" my head for it ;)

"Let's go on with the game,' the Queen said to Alice;
and Alice was too much frightened to say a word, but slowly followed her back to the croquet-ground.
The other guests had taken advantage of the Queen's absence, and were resting in the shade: however, the moment they saw her, they hurried back to the game, the Queen merely remarking that a moment's delay would cost them their lives.
All the time they were playing the Queen never left off quarrelling with the other players, and shouting `Off with his head!' or `Off with her head!' Those whom she sentenced were taken into custody by the soldiers, who of course had to leave off being arches to do this, so that by the end of half an hour or so there were no arches left, and all the players, except the King, the Queen, and Alice, were in custody and under sentence of execution."


Welcome back to the land of wonder and where the saying, 'Off with her head' is a regular statement!
Well here on Oh, Alice! this week, that is exactly what we want you to do.
This week we want you to take your stamps and yep you guessed it,
'Off with their heads'
So we are asking you to alter your stamps and mix it up a little by giving them a new head or body.
Ohhh this is going to be sooo much fun seeing what you come up with!!!

Up for grabs this week is a Scor Buddy from the lovely people at scrappingreatdeals.com.
So off with their heads for your chance to win this awesome prize.
You have until the 3rd of December to play along with us.

Here's my card...

Woo hoo! I just noticed that this is my 800th post! Wow! Took a lil over 4years to get to this one, LOL!

This was a really good challenge for me ;)  I have never attempted to alter a stamp/image before (always too scared to try, lol!) and I just knew that I had to give in and try it out! Took me a looong time, but I think I succeeded... even though I had to cheat a little and use some of my clear stamps for this, hee hee!

First I stamped MFT's Pure Innocence "Happy Mail" Stamp and then I used another Pure Innocence Stamp called "Being Cute is What I Do" - I decided to add a lil blue to her outfit and color her hair blonde for a bit of an Alice-look to her and added some paper piecing using my new October Afternoon "Modern Homemaker" papers from my yummy TE Key Ingredients Kit and put my card together using the latest SFYTT Sketch Challenge :) Thank goodness for awesome sketches, right?!


After I had finished my card, I realized that maybe I should have wiped off the letters that she's holding behind her back too, lol, oh well! Maybe she's mailing her letter to Santa then since my card does have a Christmas-y feel to it ;)
