Oh Alice ...CHAPTER 8: You can learn a lot of things from the FLOWERS...

`Never mind!' Alice said in a soothing tone, and stooping down to the daisies, who were just beginning again, she whispered, `If you don't hold your tongues, I'll pick you!'

There was silence in a moment, and several of the pink daisies turned white.

`That's right!' said the Tiger-lily. `The daisies are worst of all. When one speaks, they all begin together, and it's enough to make one wither to hear the way they go on!'

`How is it you can all talk so nicely?' Alice said, hoping to get it into a better temper by a compliment. `I've been in many gardens before, but none of the flowers could talk.'

Hello everyone! What a sweet, sunny sign of Spring it is when all of our floral friends come out to play! Here at the Oh, Alice! Blog, we definitely agree with Alice that you can learn a lot of things from the flowers! This week's challenge? You got it! USE FLOWERS on your card or project!

I'm in Orange this weekend as my sister is having an art show and so I can't tell you the Copics I used as I think I left that piece of paper back home.... but the image I used is Spring Flower from Spesch stamps ... I thought it fit perfectly with this week's quote... LOVE that part where all the flowers speak with Alice! :D The sentiment ticket is from Bizzy Becs. I raided my sisters ribbon stash and mum's scrapbooking paper as I left all my solid coloured card at home. So it's a mix mashed card today!! LOL! Here's a close up pic :) Once again I went crazy with my white gel pen!!


Happy Stamping and Happy Spring (or AUTUMN if you are like me. lol)!!
