Engagement Card

I've been missing in action for most of this week, lots of stuff going on, including yet another theatre visit, a trip to the cinema and out for a couple of meals, my social life such as it is, is either all or nothing LOL!

We went to see Gone Girl on Wednesday, I had read the book ages ago and really enjoyed it, although I had figured out the twist almost immediately, it was nice to see it all come to life on the big screen. I thought they had done a good job too, because it was very similar to the book, a couple of characters missed out, but no-one too important, and all done very well.
Thursday it was off to the Empire Theatre again, this time to see The Full Monty, not a musical for a change, but a proper play, it was really well done, full of humour and sadness, much like the film, a great cast and brilliant ending.
Once again I went with my daughter Stacy and my friend and her daughter Alison. Alison has recently got engaged and I wanted to make her a card, but with everything going on I just haven't had the time, so yesterday I quickly coloured up my favourite image for engagement cards and made a quick CAS card, with a Gift Card holder inside.

Well that's all from me today, I'll be back over the weekend with a Paper Creator Christmas Pop-up box,

Thanks for visiting,
take care,

Fab card Colette, I love the image and I've yet to try the doodled outlines but I think they look great on a CAS card. You are by the way, queen of theatre...I think we could get you in the Guinness book of I shall lookout for your Christmas box ;)

Great card, Colette! Interesting to hear your comments on the film as the critics in the press totally rubbished it. It proves that sometimes you should just ignore what they say and go and watch a film yourself, Jo x

Pleased you are having a lovely time out and about at the moment.
Your card is gorgeous. The couple are so cute and love the doodle borders.
Did you erase part of the border so that you could erase the lines?
Have a lovely weekend.
Hugs Sharon. x
