Frankly my dear I don't give a damn


Morning Peeps, it's Saturday so that means a new challenge at Allsorts where Wendy has chosen the theme of  'Film Titles', our sponsor is Nicecrane Designs.

Obviously I wanted to make a card using one of Ignacios images, but I also wanted to do something based on my all time favorite movie 'Gone with the Wind' and used two stamps I have had for years which I know came from the States but I really don't remember the make.


So as I said above two really old stamps, some DP from stash, little roses made from the same DP, lace and cord and a flourish which was cut on the Cricut.


And my second card using one of the September releases from Nicecrane Designs called Colourful Flower Fairies is my take on the movie 'Memoirs of a Geisha', I read the book when it came out years ago and later saw the movie and it's a really captivating story of Chiyo Sakamoto who along with her elder sister was sold by her family as an Okiya to a Geisha house, her new 'family' then send her off to school to become a Geisha. It's one of the few movies I have watched which actually bears a pretty close resemblance to the book. When she eventually became a fully fledged Geisha she had a silk kimono made in shades of gold and orange with floral blooms and this image reminds me so much of the way it was explained in the book.


Happy weekend to you all.

These represent both films brilliantly Brenda, although my eyes (on first glance) actually read "You should be kissed...and often...by someone you know!!" I know it helps!!! Have a good weekend xx

Two gorgeous cards and love your take on the movies. I saw the show, Geisha too and I thought it was quite emotional that she was sold away and was trained to work as geisha. I love how when the gates open, the pretty geisha is standing there with her pretty kimono!

Both of your cards are very creative! I especially love the "Memoirs of a Geisha" card. It looks like the stamped woman is throwing the doors open. Very neat!
