WE'RE OFF TO SEE THE WIZARD . . .

I'm joining the Wizard of Oz ATC Blog Hop hosted by the Two Crazy Crafters! Ever since they announced this about a month ago, I knew exactly what I wanted to do - and I made it right away.

Are you familiar with Veggie Tales, the kids videos? They have a Christmas music cd in which Pa Grape sings The 8 Polish Foods of Christmas. At some point in the song someone mentions getting very sleepy, and you can hear Larry the Cucumber in the background saying, "Poppies, poppies, poppies"! I've remembered that phrase for years, which gave me the theme for my (very first) ATC!


Now, I don't know if there are rules about flatness or going outside the lines but, if so, I didn't follow them! A bright yellow brick road background with some millinery flowers, a section of a paper drink umbrella, a label from a red poppy seed packet and, ta da! - my finished product.

Your ATC is lovely! I think the only "rule" is the size, 2.5 x 3.5. Some pile it on! Love your Vegi-Tales inspiration for the poppies too - always remember that field of poppies in the movie :)
This is a fun blog hop!

Your ATC is the cutest thing ever! Now I'm sad that I didn't participate. Hmmmm, maybe next year if they do it next year. Not sure how it works. . .

Lovely!...Now I forget what ATC stands for. Someone told me once and now that thought has flown out of my head.
