Good Morning Everyone! Since it is Canada Day on July 1st - we wanted to honor our Canadian players with a fun Canadian movie: Strange Brew starring Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas. This movie is definitely a bit quirky and has a surreal comedic air and we guarantee that you will be saying "eh?" by the end of the movie! The story of this movie, according to Wikipedia, is loosely based on Hamlet. You can read more about the story line/plot here.
So what's the challenge requirement this week you ask, eh?
The challenge requirement this week is:
to add a little maple leaf to your creations (it can be a small one, a big one -
whatever you would like :)
We are joined by our guest designers Shari and Lindsay - who wowed us with their creations from Challenge #36: Beauty and the Beast. Thank you ladies for playing along with us!!!
is for now in my head :)
hopefully it will make its way out of my head and onto a card sometime soon :)
a big thanks to Shari and Lindsay for being our wonderful guest designers this week!
hugs to all :)

(p.s. I know that I spelled the "eh" wrong on the card. I will fix it later")
Who doesn't love good doughnuts, eh? Since we watched this movie with the older kids I asked them what should I use for my inspiration? My DH said I should use a doughnut.. They make a huge deal about doughnuts 3 times in the movie.. So here you go, eh! I also wanted to use other elements of Canada in the card so I made a flannel shirt for the background, French script, and the Canadian Flag of course, eh! This movie is totally weird and I think all men/boys have seen it.. I did find the first part of the movie the funniest and had a little "Wayne's World" flash back.. "Rick Moranis" and "Dave Thomas" are so funny and they can't stop saying "eh" at the end of every sentence.. These two are the Canadian version of "Homer Simpson". I swear I have seen a episode more than once where Homer has eaten or drank more that her should have and gets stuck... This movie is one of those that you will probably have to own due to boys/men in the house.. I think I will not be watching this movie but listening to it for a long time to come..
If you think these to guys sound familiar as a team. You have probably hear them in the Disney movie "Brother Bear" they are the brother Mooses/Meese. (trivia)
Can't wait to hear what you all think of this film...
Lindsay's Card Inspired by the movie: Strange Brew:
So this was deffinately a hard one! I probably would never have picked this movie to play along with, but my Hubby enjoyed it! I couldn't get him to stop talking in a Candian accent and saying Eh? for hours!!! lol So this card was made for my husband. He loved the little mouse in the bottle. This movie had this Elizabethan feel to it in parts where it shows this castle and factory atop the hills, which inspired the look of this cart with the muted tones the distressed look on the papers. I used DCWV Happily Ever After. But this was obviously a comedy kind of cheesy and funny in a drunken goofball kinda way soooooo when you open the door to this seemingly scerene and beautiful card you have the little mouse from the bottle asking "where's my free beer Eh?"
Check out Lindsay's blog for more details of her beautiful and hilarious card :)
