Glenda - Good or Bad?

The Octopode Friday Challenge (#34) invites us all to a Fancy Dress Party. If you are interested in the challenge click here. You should check out the design team creations if you don't do anything else - they are incrediably fun and soo different!

I used Glenda the Good Witch - actually, it depends on whether or not you are a fan of the Original Wizard of Oz or Wicked. I love them both, so I went with good and bad. I used some unknown dp on my card (possibly old SU! but I am not sure) and SU! Cardstock. A glittery photo corner, some Stickles, some borrowed Copics, and Glenda came to life! I am on a crafting retreat with 21 other women, and we are having a blast up here in the mountains.

My room-mate Patty fell in love with the Octopodes too (another convert), so she wanted to make a card too. She went with a softer Glenda and the second card is hers. She used some Creative Memories dp, some borrowed Copic Markers, and lots and lots of Stickles. I wasn't sure Patty would want to do a darker Glenda, but when we were done, she said she wished she had gone with the darker side.

I wish you could see some of the talent at this retreat. We have a Creative Memories demonstrator, a SU! demonstrator, and a Close To My Heart demostrator. There are probably 15 Cricuts in the room, a couple of Wishblades, and even a Zing. We have enough supplies to open at least 3 craft stores.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend as well! Hugz to all.


  1. Glad you had a good time at the retreat :) Cute cards. I'd be on the good side :)

  2. Great cards the both of them :) The retreat sounds like fantastic fun!!

  3. Superb cards ... Coming out of retreat factory... Well done .. Hope you got much needed rest ... Samir

  4. Love your sparkly Glinda! How fun that you have converted a friend to the Wonderful world of Octopodes. I enjoyed seeing the two different takes on the Glinda image. Sounds like you are having a crafty blast in the mountains...wish I was there:) Thanks for playing with us at TOFF!


  5. Two outstanding creations, I'd say. Now, about the orginal Wizard of Oz. I hated it! I think I'm the only person in the world that did. Still hate it. Couldn't stand all that music. Isn't that strange coming from me? :-0
    Sounds as if you had a fun time at the retreat....and plenty to work with.
