Not doing too well with words right now, so pardon me if this makes no sense Wink  Look at the pretty pictures!

I took the theme quite literally...my cards are actually little six-page books.

The covers:

A peek inside the "books":

The first and last two pages are excerpts...it's the center pages where all the prettiness is located...

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, via my brain:

Peter Pan, via my brain:

They're loose interpretations, mostly symbolic stuff...nothing straightforward here Wink
My supplies are all over the map, from scrapbook paper to food coloring to kids' markers, with a big dose of gold leafing pen because I love shiny stuff.

Both cards, for polling purposes:

Gee whiz you rock so hard!  Those are entirely delightful, both of them.  Thanks so much for sharing with us.  Is it odd that I can make sense of your brain's abstractions??  Smiley

Brilliant!  I love them, and I can imagine the time it took you to make them into litle booklets like that.

If it's odd, we're all mad here 'cause I can totally see the captured "feel" of the books in the images.

Jinkies! These are great. I LOVE the Peter Pan one, though. It's very evocative (and I know that story better than Alice). It's got everything: the pirate ship, the moon, a window... but none of it is in-your-face. SO well done. Grin

I'm glad they're not totally lost on others!

(and...how pathetic is this...after so long of being rather quiet around here, I actually feel a little pull on my heart now at being called A_A...jeez, I think I need to get a "real" life Roll Eyes)

OY is real, and she REALLY likes her 'imaginary' friend, A_A, even if we dont' get to play very often anymore.  Smiley  THAT's REAL.
I'm not here much either anymore.  Sad
