World Card Making Day

HI Everyone!!!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!!!!

Welcome to Just A Blog Hop!!!  If  you are hopping here from Rachel 's blog than you are on the right track - if not you will want to start at Jami Sibley's blog so you don't miss any crafting yumminess!!! We were invited to put aside all of our stamping oriented obligations and deadlines and create something just for fun! How fun is that!  The hop guidelines were simple: choose a challenge to play and choose either a new uninked stamp or an old favorite.  Create a card and mail it to someone.  What could be better to celebrate World Card making day? 

I hope that I am not the only one who has un-inked stamps - I hang my head down in shame for all the stamps that I have bought, but have not had a chance to ink up - so today I was really happy to ink up some rubber or ahem, acrylic :) I chose to play with the Sweet Hearts stamp set from Clear And Simple Stamps - its been waiting for me to ink it up for waaaay to long!!! 

I picked the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, where this week YOU get to pick your favorite movie and then create a card inspired by it!  So I chose to pick the movie: PS. I love You starring Gerard Butler and Hilary Swank - sigh - talk about a movie that pulls your heart strings! Gerard Butler plays a character who has a chronic illness and passes away but sends letters to his wife before he passes away to help her to ease the pain of his death in the coming months- each letter is signed: PS- I love You.... 

This stamp set reminded me of that movie - because even when he is gone - his love for her comes back to her  and helps her find herself. I saw these hearts in this stamp set floating from the tree as if a wind blew it - and it reminded me of his love for her coming to wrap her up in love and the sentiment on the cloud says: PS I Love You!

I had such a fun time making a card "just because" and the best part was making it when everyone was sleeping - LOVE that! Quiet time, snoring babies and a craft desk waiting for me - woo-hoo!!! Please check out all these amazing designers and their creations today to celebrate World Card Making Day!!!!

Gorgeous card as usual. Love the colors and the layers and of course the liquid pearls.
And your choice of movie - awesome. I'm not usually into sappy movies but man I cried and laughed from beginning to the end of this movie.
