CHAPTER 3: Painting the Roses Red

Would you tell me please," said Alice a little timidly, "Why are you painting those roses?"
Five and Seven said nothing, but looked at Two. Two began in a low voice, "Why the fact is, you see, Miss, this here ought to have been a Red rose tree, and we put a white one in by mistake"...

Welcome back! We're painting the Roses RED...and blue...and purple....and hey, we're painting our NAILS too! Check out this AWESOMELY ALICE inspiration picture featuring this SUPER cool new O.P.I. Polish collection, "Wonderland".

Before we get started, the Oh,Alice! Blog has a SPECIAL Tea Party Guest joining us for the month of March! Please welcome ERIN LEVEILLE as our March Tea Party Guest! Erin BLEW US AWAY with this card she submitted for the 1st Oh, Alice challenge and we are thrilled to have her at our Mad Tea party this month :) WELCOME ERIN!

What's more? We have a FABULOUS sponsor for this challenge-KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS! It just so happens that Kim is releasing some AWESOME Tea Party images this month and was gracious enough to donate a PRIZE pack of the new rubber stamp collection featuring these awesome new images! The DT is THRILLED To have been able to work with them, too! Here is my take on the colors. The teapot was originally pink because I forgot that we had a color chalenge this week. So I re-colored it in red. Then I had to pick out new papers and low and behold I had this red paper with white roses on it.
WOW! Aren't they awesome? Now let's talk about how YOU can enter to win!

Play along with us this week by uploading your card or creation to Mr. Linky and by using keyword OAC3 if you upload to a public forum such as SCS :)

You will have until FRIDAY, MARCH 12th, 2010 to enter this challenge and the winner will be chosen via Random.org and announced during our next challenge on Saturday, March 13th! Good luck and have an AWESOMELY ALICE kind of week! Now go visit the rest of the DT and see what they painted up this week!
