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!!!!!

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!!!

Since Lynne is my near and dear friend, I had to get really creative with this one . Well I just love the Doormouse at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party. I would have loved to have been Alice there. Maybe I can have an unbirthday party today while Lynne is celebrating hers? Well here is my card for Lynne:

 The Teacup was cut from the Gypsy cartridge, Smiley Cards. The mouse is from Create a Critter. The heart border is cut with Creative Memories Double chain heart border cutting system (my new favorite tool!). If you are interested in owning this phenomenal tool, feel free to email me HERE. The quote on the saucer says:

"Twinkle, twinkle little bat
how I wonder where you're at..."

The inside says, "Hope you are out celebrating your birthday" Unfortunately Lynne is under the weather so please make sure you wish her Happy Birthday and get better soon on her blog (

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 S.

Remember to stop by again tomorrow and check out all the tea parties!!!

Hugs, Love, Tea Cups and Crumpets
