Ollie Does New York

My dear friend Libby mentioned New York today, so I thought I'd post this little ditty I made up when my friend Ollie the Octopus decided to hit the Big Apple.

He took one of my favorite paint chips EVER with him - I can't even believe I stopped hoarding this and used it on a card - and he used some Basic Grey Wander paper for a map. He's sitting on the notepaper pattern from the Basic Grey Whites collection that I cut with an eyelet Nestie. What you CAN'T see in this pic is his glisteny octopusivity that I created by covering him with Crystal Effects after I colored him with a Copic.

Maybe Ollie (who is one of a zillion adorable images from PaperWorks Co.) came to mind today because I am feeling a wee bit underwater... Anyone wanna throw me a paint chip? :)

Hope the ramp up to the holidays is going well for all of you beloveds! Who is going to Leadership with me? If you're not, I'll give you the live feed right here! :)

Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :) Want to see my other blog?


  1. "Octopusivity"...ROFL!!! I am going to HAVE to use that in a sentence this week!

    You should bring Ollie to the church of St. Arbucks so that I can bask in his shimmery glow for a few mintues. Super cute!

  2. CUTE! I gave all my paint chips away in an effort to reclaim floor space. I am afraid to go anywhere near the paint aisle in the hardware-but-we-also-sell-everything-else stores.

    WV: conso
    I can't go there. conso. No, I cont.

  3. Too cute!!!
    I wish I could go to Leadership..had planned it..until we bought the new house and we move in time!!! I'll follow the tweets!

  4. I love Ollie!!! He is sooo cute! And I'm so proud of you for reducing your hoard of paper by one paint chip! :D

    I am in love with that eyelet die!!! SQUEEEE!!!!

    WV: hysene

    One must practice good hysene to avoid getting cooties.

  5. Lydia, this card rocks! I have this Sherwin-Williams paint sampler book in my studio that I've been meaning to use on a card for a long time and here I happen to come over here by chance and you did it! Awesome. Thank you so much for your very kind comment on the Christmas Table Setting. I was afraid that it wouldn't get looked at and your thoughts mean a lot.

    God bless you and have a wonderful weekend. I love reading your blog.

  6. Love that Ollie....he's so happily balanced with all that blue....will he be like Flat Stanley? Traveling around the world, one card at a time? *smile*

  7. EEEeeeee, this is so cute too! Can you tell I am behind on my blog browsing too? Anyways, that was my silly atttempt to squeal with delight, not sure how to do that with a keyboard. LOL O well, at least I probably made you smile, and if I didn't don't tell me. LOL.

    Hugs, Lisa
