Going to the Movies

Good morning all,

Well, they finally stopped work outside my window, so I can work in peace again. Unfortunately, now they will be painting all the offices, so I have to pack up my stuff very soon and vacate my work space. Will it ever stop? Probably just before the start of the new school year ;)

Anyway, let's talk of nicer things, how about the new Fab 'n Funky challenge starting today? My teamie Aurore has picked the theme "Inspired by a Movie". Can you guess my inspiration? It's A Christmas Carol. I really like the way this card turned out, using up some snippets of paper and ribbon that were lying around my crafty desk. Why don't you pick up some more inspiration from my teamies over at the challenge blog and enter our challenge this fortnight?
