Welcome back! It's hard to imagine that two months have passed since our debut post. And, boy have you all wowed us with some fabulous song- and Olympic-inspired cards.
My thanks to Bobbi for such a colourful, Olympic-sized challenge for February, and to Peggy for her Guest I-Team appearance. Last but not least, congrats to Annie for winning last month's challenge! :)
So, what's the inspiration for this month? Looks like it's time to pop in a DVD, munch on some popcorn, and enjoy a favorite movie or two. After all, the Oscar ceremony is tomorrow night!
This Month's Challenge
In honor of tomorrow's Oscar ceremony, this month's inspiration comes in the form of quotes from a few favorite movies.
- There's no place like home. (The Wizard of Oz, 1939)
- The stuff that dreams are made of. (The Maltese Falcon, 1941)
- Here's looking at you, kid. (Casablanca, 1942)
- May the force be with you. (Star Wars, 1977)
This Month's Prize
Really Reasonable Ribbon. The challenge winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to this wonderful company.
I fell in love with these ribbons when searching for just the right ribbon for some Christmas cards. I am now a subscriber to the monthly Ribbon Club -- and am always wowed by the yummy variety of ribbons that Bonnie offers. And, you'll see one of Bonnie's ribbons on my sample card.
Thanks so much, Bonnie, for sponsoring this month's prize. We really appreciate your support and LOVE your company!
This Month's Sample Cards
We are thrilled to welcome this month's sponsor and our January challenge winner as Guest I-Teamers. Bonnie's and Kathy's cards are shown below, along with the cards of our I-Team.
I am in love with this little paper-pieced R2D2!
What an adorable card for a little guy -- or a big guy who loves Sci Fi!
Looks like I'm not the only one in love with this Bo Bunny Liberty collection. :)
And, Bobbi's done a great job pairing these two patterns.
This would make for the perfect Any Hero card for Operation Write Home!
|Guest I-Teamer Bonnie|
Not only is Bonnie sponsoring this month's prize, but she's joining us as an I-Teamer.
Bonnie's card is so rich and lush -- and yet has such a nice CAS-feel to it.
Love its shape, palette, and patterned papers.... and those gorgeous RRR ribbons!
|January Challenge Winner Kathy T|
Kathy's created another wonderful fold card.
Don't you just love how she's framed this adorable house?
Be sure to check out Kathy's blog to learn more about
the craftsmanship behind this work of heart.
Isn't Penny's trip down the yellow-brick road a real show stopper?
From her amazing background to the glittery gold and ruby red elements,
Penny's certainly captured the world of Oz!
Lastly, for my card. Bobbi and I both make cards for the wonderful organization Operation Write Home. So, I took the quote, "Here's Looking at You, Kid" in a different direction to make a kiddie card to send to OWH.
I actually chose the papers for this card to complement one of Bonnie's RRR ribbons.
This yummy ribbon came in one of the monthly ribbon assortment.
(Just wish the picture would've captured the colors more accurately!)
And, now it's your turn to wow us with a movie-theme-inspired card. Which of the four quotes will you choose? Right now, "There's No Place Like Home" is ahead in the count. :)
