Today we have another fun set to share with you, the last set of this month's hop and I have two cards to show you.  My first card is a folded card (my first one of these) and I hope to use it to give a gift of cinema tickets - you can see how I have mocked it up in the second photo.  I layered up the image - very fiddly but I think it was worth it - the popcorn is raised up the most.

 This one uses the film strip from this set and ducks from the set called Oh Baby.  Having made it I decided it reminded me of the duck shooting game at the fun-fair - I hope this idea doesn't attach itself to the card when it is given!!!  

If you are hopping please go to AnJenic next.

  8. I like the special fold on the first and very cute baby card!

  9. Good job on the folded card! My favorite is the baby card. I like how you combined today's set with the other one.

  11. Wow!!! Love your fold on the first and how you popped up the images! LOOKS so cool!!!

    Love the second with the rubber ducks! How cute is that?! I have had so much fun today seeing what everyone has put in their film strips!!!

  12. Wow, love your fancy folded card with the images that really stand out! And how clever to use the ducks in the filmstrip in your second cute!

  13. These are both great! I love the layered look of the focal image on your fancy fold card. And the ducks are cute. I had a idea about using the ducks with the Now Showing set, but it just didn't come to fruition.
