Wanna be Inspired?

Sankari Wegman is one of my guest designers this month, I first became familiar with Sankari and her work through Papercraft Planet. She is such an artist and inspiration, and I am still dumbfounded she has only been stamping a few months, (and you will be too when you see the amazing detail she puts into her cards! *) Additionally, she is quite the cinephile, and has teamed up with her friend Brooke to host something called Cinema Saturday Challenge! If you love movies, this is the perfect way to to incorporate this medium into your crafting! Each week they choose a different movie, (giving you peeks on Fridays, (it's so much fun to guess! although i haave no clue what this week's is) and then some great trivia about the film and their samples Not only are they outstanding films, but are always visually stunning, which makes the perfect starting point for a stunning card! Then you get a chance to play along too, the winner receives the coveted "Audrey Award"(see above!), is that not the cutest?? (That's a button I'd love to have on my blog!! I didn't win this, though, just lifted it to share it for the post!! )

You'll hear more about Sankari and Cinema Saturday in my Q&A I always share from my guest designers, but I wanted to give you a heads up now to go check out the challenges from weeks past (I know you'll find some of your favorite "classics" in there, there are definitelyy some I'd like to backtrack and do!) and give you a chance to play along this weekend! Now that our release is over, this is definitely the kind of challenge I want to make time for (while I munch on a bucket of popcorn LOL!) and have a DVD playing in the background!

*Some are more like actual movie props, check out this one for "Fellowship of the Rings" challenge! Thud!!
