Crafty Friends Challenge - Inspired by a book

Good afternoon everybody!

We're having some seriously lovely weather here in Ireland, I'm back inside now as it's too hot to sit out anymore! 

Anyway back to crafty stuff :) Today over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog, our latest challenge has gone up - the theme this time is 

We have two fabulous sponsors:


I used a Sherri Baldy image for my card: 

I think it's pretty obvious that my book inspiration is Alice's Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. I've always loved this book, and the sequel, Through the Looking Glass. They're both so delightfully weird, which pretty much sums up how I like to think of myself :P Also, Alice's character also reminds me so much of Luna Lovegood, and she's my favourite Harry Potter character ever! (I'm aware that I relate everything in my life back to how it would fit in Harry Potter, and I am so OK with that!) I'm also tea-obsessed!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
TEA! Always tea :) I get headaches when I haven't had any tea for a while - the first week back at school when I was in school was always desperate, after a whole summer of drinking tea, I used to be in bits without it all day!

Thanks for looking and do head over to Crafty Friends Challenge to see the beautiful cards made by my talented team-mates :)
