Lynne's Mad Hatter 60th Birthday Tea Party Day 2

Welcome to Lynne's Mad Hatter 60th Birthday Tea Party Blog Hop Day 2 --- 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/!!!

Today, I have done more paper piecings and as promised, I will show you what my completed project with all my paper piecings?? Any ideas yet what I've done . . . .

Door House Mouse cut from Treasure Box Designs Wonderland Collection

White Rabbit from SVG Cuts Alice's Cuddly Friends with brad holding the clock hands in place - this is a free file!!!! What a great price!!!

Mad Hatter's Hat from SVG Attic Mad Tea Party Kit using a piece of purple tissue lame' cut 3 x 45-inches and then tied in a bow

New Year's Eve Clock with my custom paper using Cricut Celebrate with Flourish, Studio G Glitter, brad for clock hands - which if you look closely, this was used as my blog button and was a previous blog to help announce my upcoming birthday blog!

Pocket Watch invitation from SVG Attic Mad Tea Party Kit using a brad to hold clock hands in place and invitation together with Studio G Glitter which was also a previous blog and a Guest Designer for Kari for an invitation for January -- what a purrfect way to display an invitation to my blog hop!!

Any guesses how these pieces plus yesterday's pieces are going to make a cohesive project???? Well, if you guessed - 

Tah Dah - A little bit of fishing line holding all together and I have a Wonderland Mobile which for photographic purposes was hanging in the hallway where my kokopelli belongs but Wonderland will need to find a home as the cats think its their new toy!!!!

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 April has another wonderful project to share!

Thanks for sharing tea and crumpets with my and checking out all the tea parties!!! Its my party and I will celebrate!!!

Hugs, Love, Tea Cups and Crumpets
