Chapter 22: Dancing under the Sea...

"Will you walk a little faster?" said the whiting to the snail;
"There's a porpoise right behind us and he's treading on my tail!
See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
They are waiting on the shingle, will you come and join the dance?`
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you-WILL you join the dance?"
Hello everyone! Greetings from here in Wonderland...or maybe today it's UNDERland? As in Under the Sea, perhaps ;)  So, today's challenge involves all things sea-worthy and we at Oh, Alice are challenging YOU to create a card or project using sea life!

One lucky winner will receive a Sweet Pea Rubber Stamp courtesy of Oh, Alice! These stamps are large and BEAUTIFULLY detailed and we just happened to have one 'swimmin' around!' Will YOU be the lucky winner? ;)  Be sure to upload your card or creation using InLinkz below!

If you are uploading to a public gallery, be sure to include keyword OAC22.


I really love the Sweet Pea stamps they are so detailed and artful.  And with her being a Pirate ya know I had to give her some booty.  It doesn’t always have to be gold, it can be pearls too.
