Day Three-More Peeks from Impression Obsession-There's No Place Like Home!




I am SOOOOOOOO excited to be sharing these samples with you today! When I saw that Mitra was bringing out not one but TWO Oz Collection Stamp Sets (Yes you can purchase them individually in Rubber if you like) I darned near CRIED! 




The Wizard of Oz is my Favourite Move of all Time......Favourite Movie EVER!

I have watched it over and over and OVER.....Over the Rainbow and back again~ Several Times actually! ;-p)



I remember watching it completing in Black & White  (yep, that's giving my age away!) before we even had a colour Television. And then......



I will never forget the first moment I saw it in Technicolor! The moment when Dorothy opened up the door to find a very vibrant Munchkinland!!!! I will NEVER forget that moment......AMAZING!!!!

I can recite every line of the movie, sing along with every song......



This is probably TMI, but for a few years , I would do Cowardly Lion imitations......lol. In fact whenever we had company, I was the entertainment.... I had jacked up my song and dance skills from singing the Ajax Commercial (Ajax, the foaming cleanser.....booom .....boommm ba booom booom booooom!) whilst my mother was pushing me in the cart in the grocery store when I was around two , to a full out rendition of "If I were King of the Forest" Followed by the "Courage Speech". If the truth be known, I still will do it once in awhile when egged on!!! Lol


I guess what I am saying is that I'm a Wizard of Oz FREAK!!!!

The Movie does have a Beautiful Theme though doesn't it? 

Reminding us that the Grass isn't always greener on the other side.....

If we look deep into ourselves many of the attributes we long for are already within 

and

There's No Place Like Home.

Thank you MITRA for bringing me JOY with these stamps

People may laugh when I say The Wizard of Oz is my Favourite Movie but....
I once read that is is Johnny Depps' Favourite Movie too....
Johnny Depp is Very Cool
and I am too! 


I teamed the sentiments  and the Brick Stamp up with some Graphic 45 paper and Chipboard  that I have been Hoarding for awhile and now I'm Breakin' it out!!!!!

Hope you enjoyed my peeks for today..........

I truly enjoyed creating them for you







Whatever you do.......don't forget, I'm the Good Witch!




Happy Stamping!

  8. You are too cute :) Love both cards, I too am old enough to have watched Oz in black and white (for several years mind you, before color) They used to play it every spring - just as tornado season was starting back home in Nebraska....I even remember one year there was a tornado watch while we were watching...scared my sister and she wouldn't watch anymore....

  10. Toto, we're not in Kansas any more - I love Wizard of Oz! Have read the entire series - and my parents read them to us as little children back in the 50s. Have you read the Wicked series, too? Love it. Well, I could not find the sets on the website, so will have to phone and ask about them. Love your card designs. Thanks so much for sharing about your Oz-capades.

  17. Love your Oziness!! I had to watch in black and white for years! First time I saw it in color was at a local firehouse that got a color TV and invited families with kids down to watch it! The amazing thing is you know what's going to happen in the movie and you STILL get anxious when you watch it!
    Must get these stamps. I love your cards! Beautifully done!
    Thanks so much.
