Rainy Monday...

Wasn't there a Carpenter's song like that? About rainy days and Mondays? Yes, I'm that old....

Rainy Mondays are ok sometimes, they let me not feel guilty about hiding in my room and putzing about.

So, I checked out the challenge on 365 Cards Blog this morning. It's Movie Monday and today's movie is Alice in Wonderland, not necessarily just the movie, but anything that inspires you from the theme. That was never one of my favorite stories, but then thinking about it and doing a bit of research, I came across this image of a tea cup that I fell in love with.

The image came from The Graphics Fairy. It's a fabulous site for all kinds of images that are great for card making. The best part of this site? It's an Angel Company, so you are free to use the images on your cards and the images are great quality.

I used Basic Grey, Nook and Pantry paper, Colorbok border, May Arts twine and Papertrey Ink sentiment.

And since it's Oldie Moldie Monday, I'm sharing a card where I've used supplies that I've been lovingly hoarding over the past several years. The card stock is from Prism Papers embossed with Cuttlebug HB folder, the patterned paper is from Basic Grey (Motifica-one of my faves), tree stamp is from Serendipity Stamps, sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the photo turn is from Stampin Up.

If you'd like to join Barb and I in our Oldie Modie Monday challenge, we've set up a Flickr group where we will admire your cards in all of their oldieness! We may have a prize from time to time.
Thanks for dropping by...Ivanka
