Lynne's Mad Hatter 60th Birthday Tea Party Day 1

Welcome to Lynne's Mad Hatter 60th Birthday Tea Party Blog Hop --- don't be late for this very important date and just to be sure you're not late, we're serving tea for not one day but two!! Watch out for rabbit holes, and those drink me and eat me potions as you must do them in moderation. You'll never know what you will see beyond the looking glass --- sew, sit down a spell and enjoy the talented ladies as we hop along in Wonderland. Warning, watch out for the Queen of Hearts as she is losing in the game of croquet and its off with your heads!!!!!

Rather than cake, crumpets, tarts and cookies, we have blog candy and I mean some sweet treats that are being offered by our great sponsors:
ü     Pat Catan's has donated a $25 gift card for shopping at their store, if there isn't a Pat Catan's in your area, we can transfer that out for you 
ü     Karber Digital Images at http://www.karberdigital.com/ has offered 2 digital designs of the winner's choice
ü     Digi My World at http://digimyworld.com/shop/ has offered a $10 gift card 
ü     SVG Attic at http://www.svgattic.com/ has offered a $20 gift certificate
ü     PSA Stamps at www.psastamps.com.blogspot.com has offered a 1 stamper, 2 Peel & Stick packs of winner's choice. MSRP for each package is $55.
ü     Creative Kuts has offered a $20 Gift Certificate to http://creativekuts.com/
ü     Deborah Marie Foti of http://www.scrappingmamma.net/ will make one of her original birthday cards, Crafty Friends Sentiments Large Sheet by www.gettingcricky.com AND $10 Little Scraps of Heaven Designs Gift Certificate

To be eligible by posting you must comment and post on each stop of our tea party along the way --- now remember to hold your pinky out when drinking your tea --- will that be 1 lump or 2?

Now, with those sweet treats in mind --- be sure to comment as I love to give away goodies!!!!

I’m sew thrilled you stopped by my blog to just visit today to help me celebrate my 60th birthday!!!! I just had to have a huge celebration and what better way than to celebrate with my crafting bloggie friends!! I don't want you to miss a single thing along the way and you need to start at the beginning which is two hares by the Cheshire cat who is grinning at you and that darn caterpiller smoking her pipe right here at  http://slasewcraftiness.blogspot.com/!!!

Here’s the complete line-up to follow in case you fall down another nasty rabbit hole or stumble into the Mad Hatter – never know what she may have to say! 

My project today, I have made some characters, but then again, I'm a character!!! 

All papers were from my scraps
Mad Hatter and Cheshire Cat from SVG Cuts Alice's Cuddly Characters - brace yourself these are a free file!!!!
Alice from SVG Cuts Cuddly Storybook Friends SVG Collection

I drew their eyes on and accented with my Prisma colored pencils! The Mad Hatter got his hat band with scrap white paper. Now, you're probably wondering what I'm going to do with my characters - guess, you'll have to hop again tomorrow to see what the balance of my project is!!!!! 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your tea and crumpets. Your next stop along the way is not Twiddledee and Twiddledum but Inga to see what she has in store for my birthday party!

Remember to stop by again tomorrow and check out all the tea parties!!! Its my party and I will celebrate!!!

Hugs, Love, Tea Cups and Crumpets
