Mad Hatter Tea Party Blog Hop

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, crumpetts, tarts and cookies, we have blog candy and I mean some sweet treats that are being offered by our great sponsors:
  1. 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
  2. Karber Digital Images at has offered 2 digital designs of the winner's choice
  3. Digi My World at has offered a $10 gift card
  4. SVG Attic at has offered a $20 gift certificate
  5. PSA Stamps at has offered a 1 stamper, 2 Peel & Stick packs of winner's choice. MSRP for each package is $55.
  6. Creative Kuts has offered a $20 Gift Certificate to
  7. Deborah Marie Foti of will make one of her original birthday cards, Crafty Friends Sentiments Large Sheet by 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?

If you stopped at my blog to just visit today, 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 at!!!

I created a calendar page for my project.  January is an Unbirthday month in our family, so this was perfect for my January page.  You will see that some mischevious creatures from Wonderland played with my layout because there is something VERY WRONG with it.  My family finds this very humerous because I am the Spelling Queen!  I will fix it, but thought I'd share it with you first so you can laugh with us.

Oh well...You get the idea. ;)  I used stamps, papers and inks from Close to my Heart and my Cricut to cut the hat, clock and gifts.  There are no embellishments on this page so it will lay flat (other than the almost flat cork alphabets from Cose to my Heart). 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your tea and crumpets and your next stop is not Twiddledee and Twiddledum but Janet at

This is so cute. January is one of three unbirthday months in my family too and the only one with no holiday, so I may have to borrow this. Thanks so much for the inspiration.
