Sung from the Heart Hop

Hello!!! Well...I am back from CHA. It was an AWESOME trip...had so much fun with my stampy friends (old and new!) and it was great to see all the new crafty things that will be flooding the stores soon.

I have some pictures to post but first....I have to get unpacked, do laundry and a few other odds and ends before I can edit them. So look for them in the near future.

In the meantime....Gina is hosting a blog hop for Rupa's newest set Sung from the Heart tonight. I had to scramble this morning to get a card finished for this hop. So you are gonna have to settle for a simple design from me today! (I KNEW I should have done it before I left! ha!) Here is the anniversary card I created with her set: I stamped the bird on white cardstock, colored it with Copics and cut it out. I hand cut a heart that could frame the number "9" in the October Afternoon designer paper. Why 9? My husband and I were married June 9th and this year marks our 9th anniversary :) (This sentence is a test to see if he ACTUALLY reads my posts!)

I love this sweet sentiment and wanted to emphasize the word "you" so I swiped it with the same blue marker that I colored the bird with.

Designer paper is from Road Map by October Afternoon.

Materials used: Stamps-Sung from the Heart (Gina K Designs); Memento tuxedo black ink, ruby red (SU!); cardstock-white, kraft (Gina K Designs); button (Gina K Designs); Designer paper-Road Map (October Afternoon); hemp; Spellbinders scalloped rectangle dies; Cuttlebug (Provocraft).

Guess you should always do your cards in a hurry, cause this one is perfect. :) Love the bird carrying the heart idea. You deserved a trip to CHA since your husband had a "trip" also. We called it TDY in the AF. Was glad to see a picture that he was back home this month.
