Follow the Yellow Brick Road !! -- Kraftin' Kimmie

For my 9 month blog candy, please click HERE.

Hi Everyone!!
Hope you are having
a good week so far!!  :) :) 
It's hump day ~~ WEDNESDAY!!
My girls have been sick on and off these
past few days so I have been playing nurse 
@ home!!! Limited crafty time so I have to be
efficient when I am online!! Thankfully, it seems that
the flu has missed me so far & I am very thankful for that!!

This is my last post as a Krafty Guest for Kraftin' Kimmie
Welcome to another Wonderful Wednesday 
challenge and the last one for January!! 
Please use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp
and make whatever your little 
heart desires!!  :) :) :) 

One of my all time favorite movies is
The Wizard of Oz, so I knew that I wanted 
to use one of Kraftin' Kimmie's awesome Oz 
stamps before my time as Guest Designer was over. 

Here is Dorothy & one of the fab sentiments from the Oz sentiments.

I sang, "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" the whole time I was making my card...LOL!
My girls finally called up to me and said, "Mom, can you please stop singing?!"
I used a brick road embossing folder and added some smooch glitz to
make it as shiny as the yellow brick road in the movie!! :) :) 
I also tried some scrunched up seam binding as a bow.
Not sure if I love it, but it was something new.

I used some Xmas Red stickles on her shoes... 
so they could be like real Ruby Slippers.  :)

Here's a close-up of Dorothy!!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
The Squirrel and the Fox: Use Embellishements

Dragonfly Dreams:  Thoughts of Summer
