And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

It's all about the flowers...

I think that the flowers singing in Alice in Wonderland was one of the most memorable parts of the movie. I remember NOT liking how the lion ones looked :)) This card was one that was put together sort of like a puzzle as I went along. I had NO plan and no picture in my head AT ALL!!! I always do, I guess that is another reason I like it so much. It just happened. :)

 I took my Drink Me Alice in Wonderland digi and colored and cut her out, attached her to the embossed yellow background, added glossy accents in a few places and set her aside. After a lot of just sitting and staring at her and a stack of scrap paper I just started throwing stuff together. I had this scrap piece of a flower coaster from my other Alice card *remember her, I posted this earlier this week* 
decisions for Alice
I attached it to the top of the page and thought it looked cute. I thought I was done... then I saw the scrap of the little Cheshire cat. Perfect I said to myself! Then it still felt plain. The flower was just floating. I got out my Twinery twine and added a strip. It still felt plain. I had already had this song from the cartoon stuck in my head while creating it, so I thought WHY NOT! It was a long sentiment, but after I cut the words out separately and placed them down the stem, they JUST fit. *like Cinderella's slipper, but for Alice in Wonderland*

It is an adorable cupckae inspiration photo, so you really DON"T HAVE to use Alice themed things... Stop on over to see the pic and play along. 

If you made it through this post, bless you!
I have a cold and have not been sleeping well AT ALL. I have had major coughing fits the past few nights and wake up feeling super icky! It passes after a few hours and I am ok until bedtime again, but right now I am still trying to make it out of ickyness :))

Hope to see you tomorrow at
