The Alice Experience

Spring inspired, I have been busy drawing and printing some new cards for the shops.
I came up with a birthday card for my brother, and this dream big card for my sister who is trying to get her book published at the mo.

We also took advantage of the national trust free day this weekend
and went along to see Antony house in Cornwall.
They recently filmed the new Johnny Depp film, Alice in Wonderland here and i have been dying to go and have a sneak peek at the goings on there.

There was a mad hatters tea party going on, croquet on the lawns
and whimsical mushrooms, topiary tea cups and butterflies scattered around the beautiful grounds.
There was also some amazing gnarly ancient trees which have been there since 1721 when the house was first built.

Ill leave you with my crafty Exploits for the week.
Meet another whimsical character of mine not quite as cute as the white rabbit but possible looking as mad as the hatter.

I also made a baby sleeping bag for a customer order out of this great Ikea fabric.
Its so cute and cosy I would like an adult size one.
I am sad to say that i have nearly ran out of this fabric so alass it is not to be, boo hoo.
