Oh, Alice - CHAPTER 28: Child of the Pure Unclouded Brow...

CHAPTER 28: (taken from "Child of the Pure Unclouded Brow: preface to "Through the Looking Glass"

Child of the pure unclouded brow
And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.

I have not seen thy sunny face,
Nor heard thy silver laughter;
No thought of me shall find a place
In thy young life's hereafter -
Enough that now thou wilt not fail
To listen to my fairy-tale.

Hello everyone! We are celebrating the wonder of childhood today here at Oh, Alice and are thrilled to announce this week's sponsor, Paper Pretties Stamps! Are you all familiar with Paper Pretties? If you're new to them, check out their darling images! If it's been a while, Paper Pretties is PROUD to announce that they're under NEW ownership and is pleased to offer you faster, cheaper shipping, WAY more reliable service, and lots of new items in the store. We are thrilled to congratulate Heather Lee-Reppen on her new endeavor and are honored to have her sponsorship this week!

Also, today is my final day at the head table of this tea party - I'd just like to say a big thank you to all of the wonderful DT, and especially to the Mad Hatter for inviting me to join them!  It's been great, ladies - {hugs!!}

Anyway, on to why you really came - my card!  So... with it being a 'little girl' theme, of course I drew inspiration from my littles, as well as the whimsicality (it's a word now) of Wonderland...and living candy.
I picked up the happy puffy candy at Wal-Mart - I had a serious case of the giggles when I saw it.  Pretty sure anyone within a 20 foot raius is now convinced I'm nuts.  (LOL!)  Other than my candy, bling and Heidi, everything came out of the scrap bags... I pieced Heidi's dress, and there is Glossy Accents on her wings & boots.

It's been fun, Oh Alice girlies - thanks so much for having me this month!
