Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #25 - Goldfinger

This is my second attempt at making a card for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. I love waiting to see the sneak peeks and guessing what movie it will be and have even roped in my dear friend Carolann ( ) to do the same each week!! This week she was pretty close to the mark with her guesses and hopefully she'll make a card too...hint hint Carolann!

Having a house full of males, Bond films are part of our movie library and my husband really enjoys the action and the odd pretty woman that they provide...I must say that most of the lead actors who have played Bond are pretty good eye candy too for me....a personal favourite is definitely Mr Connery.

My card has a definite British flavour. I have embossed using gold and using a stampin' up wheel. The little Union Jack flag, London bus, Underground sign and London sign make it a fun card I think. Perhaps no 007 in sight but a bit of his heritage!!

The photo was taken outside by the pool on a sunny Melbourne day, so the gold really pops!

There is also the chance to win some blog candy this week as the girls are celebrating their 25th challenge...congrats ladies! Here's what is written on the site....

As a big thank you to all of you - we would like to include our Audrey recipient this week with this beautiful stamp set called BRANCHING OUT from Taylored Expressions. This set is normally $21.95 but can be yours for playing along this week (open to all international players!!!) !!! Please mention this blog candy on your blog! Its really such an amazing stamp set (Its my favorite!)!!!
2. AND that's not all, all players will be eligible to win the Prudence Paper Collection kit for just entering your card! After the deadline is over, I will use to help me pick one random winner for this awesome set of papers from Taylored Expressions!!!

How good is that? And for doing such a fun thing too!!!

Card for a friend

This is another card that I made this afternoon for my friend Liz's birthday. I think she'll like it!

This is my first attempt at making a card for any challenge but as "Singin' in the Rain" is such a good movie I gave it a go. I love the song 'Moses toes are roses' that Donald O'Connor sings - it's such a great play on words and a lot of fun.

Something to see!

Thought that there would be no point in having a blog if I didn't put something on it!! I recently attended a class run by my good friend Debbie Pamment, who is an Independent Stampin' Up demonstrator (Debbie P's Place) . This was one of my attempts at card making that night...the other has been sent off with a parcel of goodies for a new born baby. I love the choc chip card with the pinks....

New Blog......

Time to start getting with the times......hopefully it won't be too taxing on my little grey cells!!! Fingers crossed xxxxx
