Go Ask Alice

Almost 2 weeks ago (wow, it really doesn't seem that long ago) Jessica (AKA The Whimsical Butterfly) posted a card that I TOTALLY fell in love with and the story that went with it had me crying. Her post is HERE. I could NOT stop thinking about that card, and truthfully I wanted to copy everything about it! I thought a lot about things I could change so that mine wasn't a complete COPY but was instead inspired by hers (although I HAD to use the fabulous Inktegrity "Blackberry" caterpillar image and the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper!) The mushrooms may look familiar to you fellow Greeting Farm fans - I drew the mushrooms from the Wonderland set larger so my Caterpillar could sit on them.

The Details:
Stamps: Signature, Hello Go Round - The Greeting Farm, Blackberry - Inktegrity
Paper: Cosmo Cricket - Earth Love, Chocolate Chip, PTI White
Alice: Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20,R22
Hair: E50,E53,E55
Dress: BG72,BG75,C0,C1,C5,C7
Mushroom: E43,E44,E47,E49
Caterpillar: YR21,YR23,YR14,R20,BG72,BG75
Misc: Dew Drops

Thanks so much for visiting me today! And thanks to everyone who sent well wishes my way yesterday for my headache! That was so sweet!

There are dog and caterpillars and a copper centipede,
where the lazy daisies love the very peaceful life they lead...
You can learn a lot of things from the flowers,
for especially in the month of June.
There's a wealth of happiness and romance,
all in the golden afternoon...

Your card is just darling! I love how creative you are!

Amy said...
