Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #44 - The Thief Lord

Good Morning Everyone,

Our dear Brooke is off enjoying the Stampin' Up Convention! We wish we were with you! Here is a fun little movie that we have for you today called the Thief Lord. I myself only watched it last night (I don't how it happens that my Cinema cards always get created at the last hour almost always!).  The Thief Lord  is a really sweet movie that was released in 2006 and is based on the German children's book released in 2000 by Corneila Funke. 

Here is the story line for those of you who haven't seen it yet from IMDb: "This tale follows six-year-old Bo and fifteen-year-old Prosper, two recently orphaned brothers who escape their impending separation by running off to Venice. There they have fantastical adventures with the mysterious masked figure known as the Thief Lord and his band of child followers, who show the boys all the magic the city has to offer." 

The challenge this week is really simple:

Make a friendship card or a card about sisters/brothers (for your sisters or for your brothers). Since this movie is all about Prop and Bo coming and staying together and bond of friendship that develops and is tested with the gang who takes them in and helps them in Venice - the challenge is to make a card either for your sibling or about siblings (your children and that they are each other's siblings, etc.) or it  could be for a friend.

Sankari's card based on the Thief Lord

Well, after I watched the movie - I decide that I would make a card for a friend. I really loved the relationship between the two brothers - so sweet how they took care of each other and wanted to be with each other. I also loved the friendship between all the members of Scipio's band - very sweet they way they stayed loyal to each other and maintained their friendship even when it was questioned. So here is my friendship card - I printed out the sentiment on my computer:

It is  very simple - I was almost ready to chuck it and start over - but that was a few hours ago - so I thought it was better to show you a card than nothing so here it is in all its simpleness.... you can check out my blog for more details about the card.
Thanks so much for coming and visiting the Cinema Saturday Blog!
Sankari :)
