Thanks, as always, to Natty.
The challenge this week was three prompt words. Brads, Garden & Foam Pads.
I have made a card to the challenge prompt but it’s a birthday card, it’s not time yet and there is an outside chance they might see it, so i’ll not risk it.
Instead i’ll show you the card I made for the Saturday Card Challenge by Kimber from Two Peas In A Bucket. The challenge is here.
A simple thank you card for a neighbour who has given us a stack of quality hand-me downs for the boys. I didn’t stretch too far from the sketch, I was drawn to the challenge as it was using the papers from the kit I have been working with from Creative Craft World.
Last week I left a Shakespeare link and it went down well so I thought I might post one each week with the card challenge and choose one that linked to whatever was going through my mind.
This week garden was the prompt I was drawn too, then when I realised I couldn’t post the card yet and looking at this one I realised there were also flowers on there and started thinking about the flowers Shakespeare mentioned and therefore inevitably this quote. I used a teaching internet site to track it down and then looked it up in my book (easy-peasy, meaning I didn’t give up )
”What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;”
Pretty much sums up the play doesn’t it, depends on your point of view as to “What’s in a name?”, is family or love most important and how difficult and complex it is when it crashes into each other difficultly.
A bit like that sentence, Will would shake his head at me
I have just realised that there is a film version of this that I love…..no this won’t be a series of pictures of blokes I fancy dressed up as Shakespearen characters!
Baz Luhrmann made the beautiful Romeo & Juliet with Leonardo di Caprio (with a name like that he just had to oh and btw I don’t actually fancy him!) and the wonderful Clare Danes-who captivated me then and is now; in Homeland on C4. It had a great soundtrack, you and me song I think it was called one of them. Not sure who it was by? The wanadies I wanna say.
It is, I just found it. Not that I make this stuff up as I go along.
