It's a mad ,mad Alice in wonderland world

ATC's for the Alice in wonderland swap over at the blissfull ATC swap group. "curiouser and curiouser”

Madame Valentine

 I wanted to highlight a very special blog I found the other day... http://rhondasoriginals.blogspot.com
Rhonda had this doll sheet on her blog for free ... she has lots of these doll characters on her site..... all with lots of details. They are 3D so you can stand them in the middle of a table as a wonderful center piece.

This one is called "Madame Valentine" , she is reading the tea leaves in mademoiselles Violetta's tea cup.... her dolls are two side and these stand up on their own.... I going to put them on my hall table... the wheels turn, the arms move... I had such fun with the embellishments.

Thank you Rhonda for sharing your artwork with me.

My giveaway is still open ... the button is on the side bar

A DAY OF THANK YOU'S and don't let this happen

I have been missing and my thank you's post have been mountain up... nothing's wrong I been writing and I know miss Kim will be so pleased to hear that.. but that leaves less time to get on my blog. 

First before my thanks you's.......  

Have you noticed some sites are down today.....Wikipedia, for example  well that's because of the protest against the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP act).... basically, if you've taken the words or linked to a song or movie, these two laws would give the government and the movie/music industries the power to take down your site.  That means your blog, my blog, anyone's blog. 

Makes you think hey!.......

 Okay goodies thanks to the ladies at Paper Traders for the wonderful ATC I won in the WTA from left to right  Amanda Evens,D Martin, Nancy Slaby ,Janna Ryan ... thank you
 and also thank you to Donna for this ATC ... funny story about this Donna emailed me saying she wasn't happy with this ATC for the blissfull atc swap ... I asked her if she had been on the eggnog because it was stunning and she could send it my way... well here it is in my hot little hand... thank you Donna it is really sunning.

and talking of paper trader they picked my  party girl altered card as the winner of the party hat challenge .... how cool is that

As part of the paper traders love note envelope swap. I found myself looking through at lots of love poems to find the ones that spoke to me.. this is one of my favorite

Time is too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short  for those who rejoice ,
But for those who love.
Time is Eternal.
