Shopping Our Stash 189 - The Big Screen

Happy Tuesday February 17 to you!! The SHOPPING OUR STASH crew are coming back at ya today with a new challenge, our theme this week is The Big Screen. We'd like you to make a project inspired by a movie...and...be sure to tell us which one!!

One of my all time favourite movies is the Wizard of OZ...other than the flying monkeys...those still give me nightmares!!  My lovely SOS teammie CHRIS kindly gifted me some fantastic Wizard of Oz themed papers, they are perfect for this challenge!!

Shite I used to make this card:

  • Kraft cardstock (Recollections)
  • Magic of Oz Collection design papers (Graphic 45 - thanks Chris!!)
  • Tea Dye distress ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Mini ink blending tool (Tim Holtz)
  • Filmstrip Ribbon (Tim Holtz)
  • Kraft doily (Recollections)
  • Wooden hearts (in my stash, pretty sure they were a gift)

I hope you admire the picture of my card, I near lost my life taking it LOL

We have a LOT of snow here in the Niagara Region right now..and in another show of my dumbassedness, I wanted to take the picture out in my backyard...well I couldn't get to my usual picture taking spot so I thought I would set it up on the railing of the stairs...yep, I only lost the card and floral frog into the snow once and had to dig for the friggen frog...that sucker is heavy and sunk!! 

Then being cranky and not paying close enough attention to what I was doing, I let go of the railing and slipped down the stairs landing on my buttocks in a heap at the bottom...card making is a risky business I tell ya!!

Here's a few shots of the front of my house in all it's snowy glory:

Be sure to visit the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there show my teammies some crafty lovin won't you??

Until next time...stay warm!!

You risked your LIFE for this card! Now THAT'S dedication.

Love this paper. I think I used to have that collection. By the way, it's one of my all-time favorite movies, too. :)

Sorry about the mishap, and I hope you didn't hurt yourself! The card turned out great with the Wizard of Oz theme! Love that movie, always did :)

I think it may be time to think about setting up your photo-taking indoors. Besides, it's COLD out there! Great way to use those papers, love the card!

oy, your butt! Glad you survived to tell the tale! And I should really share some pics of the nastiness in the yard too. Winter. Bah.
I almost almost went with Wizard of Oz too and changed my mind at the last second - this is pure awesomesauce!
