Good morning!! Today's card was a total "JOY" to create!! It's for this week's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. The movie is a favourite of mine (saw it 3 times!). Who didn't love Julie & Julia? And who thought Meryl Streep should have won the Oscar for that role? (just sayin'!). The challenge was to use something from the kitchen. I immediately thought of these fun recipe cards I picked up last year at Chapters. They come in a matching recipe box too. I just love the multi-coloured band at the top. I had to cut the index card down to fit the card. I lightly stamped "happiness" after "A recipe for..." Playing on the word "Joy" as in Joy of Cooking, I chose this stamp from my Technique Tuesday set. It was a one line sentiment until my scissors made it a two line sentiment. I love doing that with clear stamps...it doesn't really wreck anything as they piece back together so well :) Oh, I love this movie!! One of my favourite parts was when Julia is cooking an omelette on her show, flips it, and it falls all over the place. She then picks it up and says something like, "oh, just put it back together, no one will know. Don't apologize!!" Busts me up everytime :) And, of course, this sentiment reminds me of my "Greatest Joy." Have a wonderful day...wishing you smiles and sunshine and happiness and joy :)
