I loved this film as a child and recently re-visited it on DVD, and I must say it was as wonderful today as it was all those years ago, they just don't make them like that anymore!

I used the image of the Scarecrow in this card


The DP is from my stash, and the background is Pretty Patterns by Gina K Designs. The sentiment is from my stash and the corn is a Spellbinders die - Cattails, the little heart is an EK Success Punch.

My next card uses the images of Dorothy, Toto & of course The Yellow Brick Road


The paw prints are form a set by Our Daily Bread and the flower is Shasta Daisy by Cheery Lynn, the idea for the smilie was from a card by the lovely Olga Moore, and when I saw it I just knew I would have to borrow that idea! Thank you Olga. The sentiment and DP is again from my stash.

Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you who came to see me in Chatham yesterday, it was a fun day and I loved talking to each of you. I would like to say an enormous thank you to Rita for her generosity donating sewing and craft items to the Creative Adults Group.

Ok so today we have 2 challenges starting, The Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge and The Crafters Cafe.

I will start with the Outlawz, the theme this week is "Friendship"

We have two amazing sponsors this time

The pretty ribbon is from my stash and the dies are Spellbinders Petite Ovals & Petite Scalloped Ovals. The sentiment is by Creative Expressions from the Amazing Sentiments set.

My second card uses the SLS Lines image - Dragonflies


The embossing folder is by Crafters Companion and is called Rain. The sentiment is by Personal Impressions - Message Set 1, and the leaves are dies by Dee's Distinctively - Philodendron 


Now over at The Crafters Cafe the theme this time is "Bling"

Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Happy Tuesday

I am a little late with this post mainly due to some minor surgery on my shoulder and a lot due to my lovely husband who thinks a holiday from work is a good time to clear out all the clutter, as he calls it, or all the treasures I have squirrelled away incase they come in handy one day, and as I am slightly out of action he thinks I won't be able to remove those treasures from his rubbish pile!

Ho hum and on with the cards :-)

This week over at The Outlawz Gretings challenge we are playing Tic Tac Toe 


Our lovely sponsors for this challenge are



My first card uses the Angie's image - Little Lila Bowling


I used one of the diagonal lines on the grid - Flowers, Image, Punch/Die Cut

I also used Spellbinders Petite Ovals small, Petite Scalloped Ovals large, Fancy Tags & Sentiments One

My second card uses the pre-coloured Dr Digi image - Blunder Woman


I used one of the diagonal lines on the grid - Red, Image, Stitching (faux)

I created the background with my Geli plate and used copy paper to mask off the stars, stripes and heart, this was based on a stencil I found a picture of on Pinterest, but the link was broken so I am unable to find who's stencil design it was. I added a Riley & Co sentiment and Gina K Designs In Stitches, the little gold stars are peel-offs and the big gold stars are made with a Woodware punch. I used my Scan N Cut to fussy cut the image.
