Just for Fun





I saw this image on the QKR Stampede site and thought it would be ideal for a fun card for my elder son to give to his dad. When Douglas was young hubby took him to see Babe and this reminded me of both that film and the book Animal Farm. That was the first time they had gone to the pictures on their own so it is an occasion that they both remember well.

Digi coloured with Promarkers mix of snippets from paper stash

Great image for a great memory, fabulous papers and love the fussy cut image.
The first film I ever went to see was Tommy the Toreador (Little White Bull) I cried.
Next film was Bambi, I cried, refused to go for ages after that as I thought all I do is cry.
