CHAPTER 22: Christmas-tide in Wonderland! Week 2

From a Fairy to a Child
LADY dear, if Fairies mayFor a moment lay asideCunning tricks and elfish play,'Tis at happy Christmas-tide.
We have heared the children say -Gentle children, whom we love -Long ago, on Christmas Day,Came a message from above.
Still, as Christmas-tide comes round,They remember it again -Echo still the joyful sound,'Peace on earth, good-will to men.'
Yet the hearts must child-like beWhere such heavenly guests abide.Unto children, in their glee,All the year is Christmas-tide.
Thus, forgetting tricks and playFor a moment, Lady dear,We would wish you, if we may,Merry Christmas, glad New Year.
--Lewis Carroll, Christmas, 1887.
The Design Team at The Altered Alice wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ! This month the design team brings you their holiday wishes, and we invite you to send your holiday greetings to The Altered Alice and to our other readers.

We do not have a sponsor this month, so we are just sharing for the joy of Christmas in Wonderland, and we hope that you will share too. We will have honorable mentions, so play along for the glory if not a prize!
To celebrate the season, The Altered Alice brings you The Lewis Carroll Memorial Window at Daniell Chapel in England. Check out the website to view the beautiful images as well as the inspiration and greetings sent by the individual DT members.
 My Inspiration for you:
For my Christmas greeting I created ornaments using images mostly from various past sponsors. Here you see them decorating my door wreath. All of the ornament tops were cut from metallic cardstock using Cheery Lynn ornament die-cuts. The images were stamped on shrink plastic, colored with Tombow markers, die-cut using a Spellbinders die and shrunk. The two parts of the ornament are attached using a jump ring.

Hopefully everyone enjoys a wonderful and happy holiday season!

Barbara, these ornaments are FANTASTIC! I love love love your wreath. So sorry for the scheduling snafu, when I realized I had houseguests arriving within the hour and was in a cleaning frenzy. I will have to repost about them next Christmas as they are wonderful!
