Ding Dong, The Witch is Dead!

Happy Tuesday to you!  Doesn't that title make you wanna sing the song from the Wizard of Oz?  Whenever hubby & I are out and we see a person being persnickety or nasty I start singing it...loudly...to be annoying and hopefully make them recognize that they are being ugly.  Does it work?  I don't know but it always gives me a giggle :)  No sense in so much nastiness in this world I tell ya...I just don't understand it.  I cannot leave the house without someone cutting me off on the roads, someone yelling or *itching at a counter or restaurant, or someone trying to run me over as I cross the parking lot because they are in a hurry.  SLOW DOWN PEOPLE...I mean really I live my life in a mad rush...I'm always looking at the clock...I live by the clock most days.  BUT I try to keep my temper in check, remember that people are usually doing the best they can and of course take care to watch for human life.  Seriously I do...but if you throw your nastiness this way in an offensive way...well it ain't gonna be pretty...I will warn you.  I do not take nasty people or attitude lightly...ask my family...ask my friends...I will be in your face going right back at you BUT I'd much rather be smiling and laughing with you.  So take your nasty-ass attitude back home, do some breathing exercises (or have a drink for heavens sake), evaluate your life and get it together.  We all are struggling with different things, we are NOT the only ones with issues, sadness, problems, stress so why make it worse.  We have a chance to be NICE every moment of our life, to share a smile, to make someone laugh, to give a hug or a moment of relief....isn't that so much nicer than the alternative?  Doesn't it make you feel so much better when you are smiling and sharing a smile?  I know it is for me and I try to approach every moment that way...it doesn't really take that much energy and the prize you get back is HAPPINESS...and that my friends makes it ALL worth it!!  I'll get off my soapbox now...hee...but I really wish more people would think before they speak, pause before they act and consider their actions and thoughts.  One life people...we get one...remember that!


Oz is Fabulous...Yes Indeed!!

Today we present "The Wizard of Oz" quartet here at ScrapBitz hee hee!  I love the Wizard of Oz...I grew up watching it every year on our black & white tv (yeah I'm old..what's it to ya) and I still love watching it.  My kids don't like it...must be the flying monkeys or something LOL but they refuse to watch it with me.  I liked the new Oz movie too and I've read ALL the books AND I've seen Wicked...yeah a wee obsessed I may be :)  These Wizard of Oz stamps are digis from Karber Digital Images and come in a set for $10...and Toto (I didn't get him) is on sale for $1!!  You know I have 2 cairn terriers...mine are blondies but I grew up with a gray one named Huckleberry...Toto was a cairn terrier.  Yes indeed, I love my cairns...most loyal and smart dogs EVER (and hypoallergenic hee hee).  So I decided to make four cards all using scraps I had on my table...a nice set for a gift!

I'm entering these cuties into the following challenges:


Here's the cutie Tin Man and Cowardly Lion...so cute right?  All colored with Copics, paper scraps, MS border punch, pearls and SBs dies.  Also distressed all my papers and used some white PTI ribbon.  Diamond Glaze on that tin man in a few places for added shine!

And here is Dorothy with Toto and Scarecrow!  I love
how they all turned out and if you add some envies and tie them up with a ribbon or place in a clear box from PTI...what a gift right?  Fun too for a Wizard of Oz lover like meself :)


  1. How adorable. What a lovely gift this would make for sure.

  2. So awesome!!! Love the gift set and those images are beautiful! Hugs, Brigitte

  3. Hi Suzanne,
    Oh my goodness, I LOVE your cards! I love the Wizard of Oz. In fact, I'm kind of obsessed :) There's actually this wonderful children's bookstore in NYC that's pretty famous (kind of what teh bookstore in You've Got Mail was based on, if you've ever seen that movie). Anwyay, they carry special edition, beautifully illustrated, limited edition copies of all of the Wizard of Oz books. I get one for myself every year as a treat and I almost have all of them now. If you're interested, send me an e-mail and I'll send you the link :) Anyway, LOVE your cards, I'll have to get these images for sure :)
    Hugs, Christine
