Creative Avoidance has set in once again, and instead of making framed thingies for tomorrow's show, I am making a card for a challenge. To justify this, I also made 3 more to sell tomorrow. (so she says)
The challenge du jour is the 100th Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. Today's inspiration is Pride & Prejudice. Of course, I think of the version of the movie with the dreamy Colin Firth, but I digress.
Most people will come up with normal cards for this challenge, but I never claimed to be normal. After Colin Firth, the first thing I remember about this movie is the mother's voice. OMG, it's like nails on a chalkboard. Every time she went into a drama episode - "Oh, my, shall we ever find suitable husbands for all our daughters?! *wail*", all the girls would sit there demurely and roll their eyes. I can only think THIS is what was going through their minds:
See her lace hanky? We were supposed to use lace. :)
Since I was feeling guilty about my distraction, I used the same image and made three of these:
There. One challenge done, and a total of four cards for tomorrow's inventory. Now off to the Post Office and the grocery.
Thanks for stopping by!
How cute! Great take on the movie!ReplyDelete
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA oh I love it!!! How funny. And how PERFECT.ReplyDelete
And speaking of perfect, I whole-heartedly agree about Colin Firth. :-D
THAT is SO true!! I love your fun and creative take of the P. and P. Perfect sentiment and image! (PS: I hope I will not become Mrs. Bennett when I grow old....). My DD will definitely roll her eyes!ReplyDelete
You said it and this card is just perfect. Says it all. Loved the lace handkerchief idea.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness! Perfection! I had a similar train of thought. There are too many deliciously awful people in P&P not to find them inspiring. ;) Adore the little hanky!ReplyDelete
Love it!! The quote is perfect for the film -Hahaha!ReplyDelete
I love the little lace hankie too.
Ok the first thing that caught my eye was the awesome way you used the lace! Way to totally ROCK that inspiration challenge.. Then.... I read the sentiment... I had such a great giggle.. LOVE IT!!! You totally captured the challenge.. Please join us again.. What great humor you have...ReplyDelete
What a great card especially when you think of some of the relatives in Pride and Prejudice!ReplyDelete
I really think these cards are great - the stamp, the lace and the sentiments that made me laugh!ReplyDelete
Wow I love this card. Where did you get that sentiment "dont judge me by my relatives", genius I love it? Really where did you get it from.ReplyDelete
