Drunken Stampers #125 - Up!

Oh, this movie is one of my recent favourites. I've seen it in full at least 3 times, and bits & pieces of it many more while the kids watch. This week, the Drunken Stampers want to see you create a project inspired by the movie Up - or with the alternate theme, balloons.


My favourite part? The heartwrenching and beautiful beginning of the film, the love story of Carl & Ellie. *Sniffle*
Connor's favourite part? The dogs can talk. He is convinced that those collars really- SQUIRREL! (OK, that's one of my favourite parts too.) 

There are so many parts of this movie that translate well into a card, and I decided to go with something that celebrates going for your dreams. And the sky. 


Supplies: printed panel from My Mind's Eye; star stamps from Stampendous; sentiment stamp from Paper Smooches; Tumbled Glass distress ink; Gray Flannel Memento ink

I can't wait to see what you come up with!  Our linky will be open until next Friday night, May 3rd. Check out what the rest of the Midnight Margaritas made:


xoxo,
Jessi

A perfect drunkin "UP" card, Jessi!! Also perfect as we are nearing another season of high school congraduations! I love that movie, too, and often use the "squirrel," which is SO TRUE and I'm not even a dog, altho some would say I can be a female dog at times, hee hee!!!
