City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 275 ~ Around the Corner

This week at



Stella had an interesting theme for us

Around the Corner
(check out details HERE)

I am using my Foxy stamp and color it with marker pen




our special guest star this week is Suchi, you really need to check out her lovely work.

On the side note, when Stella told me the name of the challenge is Around the Corner, I immediately think of one of my favorite movie - The Shop Around the Corner, a 1940 movie based in Budapest, it was introduced by my 19 year old (I told you, she is a little old lady inside a young body). She knew that I love the movie "You've Got Mail" and told me that the original movie is The Shop Around the Corner, well, DH and Dolce both love the 1940 movie more than I do, but "You've Got Mail" has a special meaning to me, not only I love and lived in New York City for some of my most memorable years, I also lived on the upper west side like in the movie, so every corner they turn, I knew exactly where is that spot, plus Cafe Lalo in the movie is one of my favorite hang out spot too, it is just few doors down from my friend Jean's apartment, we spent some lovely girlfriend time there, so...... The Shop Around the Corner or You've Got Mail, do check them out and tell me which one you like.

Adorable card Kirsty!
I never knew the film The Shop Around the Corner ... I'll have to check it out! I often think when I am watching American movies how fun it must be to actually know those places!

I'll have to get hubby to find the 1940s movie--don't think I've seen it, but I do remember You've Got Mail & I liked it. Really fun to see something filmed where you've been. We're waiting for Ashley Judd's new movie to come up since it was filmed in Cumberland Gap (we were just there) & hubby's newly found cousin's hubby, daughter & truck are in the movie! We watch Grimm in part because we lived in Portland for a lot of years & it's so fun to recognize places. Sweet card, Kirsty--darling fox & the printed paper sets it off perfectly!

Awww your little fox is too cute peeking out. I've never seen the older movie so I can give an opinion on which one, but I do adore Tom Hanks. :-) Hugs!
