Feeling Green

I'm feeling green in a good way. I have live theater afterglow of the Wicked type. I know this musical has been out a long time, but it was everything you hope a visit to the theater will be. I was entranced the entire time, chills, tears, laughter, it moved me to my core. I've been singing along to the music for a couple of months in anticipation to our journey to the Pantages theater in Hollywood. I thought I had a good idea of what to expect. Not even close. You have to put this on your A list if you love the theater. I think this musical was written for all of us who grew up watching the Wizard of Oz each year on TV scared silly by the witch and the monkeys and the creepy little munchkins. This brings the story together in a whole new way, and I adored it. I could see it again and again. It was the best Christmas present ever. How many 40 somethings get to say that? Yep, it even topped the purple bicycle with the banana seat sporting those groovy flowers. Don't tell Mom :)


Supplies used: sparkly green felt cut with wavy blade rotary cutter, SU sentiment and tag punch, green stickles, blue twill tape, printed paper, ready made card by MM, white ribbon.

OMG I LOVED Wicked, too. It's one that I could see over and over and over. The music is so fun, just like your card. I really like those colors.
