guest designing at the heart desires #10

I had a blast the past couple months, creating entries for the beautiful challenges over at The Heart Desires. This month, for Challenge #10, I get to join the talented gals over there as guest designer. "Be still my heart" I thought when I saw all this lovely map goodness. I can seriously lose myself for hours in maps...


Which immediately brought to mind a card I'd created a long time ago for my hubby. Isn't it cool to personalize a card to include a special spot on this earth? I love this design for wedding or anniversary or plain ol' love cards. I went ultra CAS for today's card which also features a heart die cut from a map.


I die cut the letters using PTI Headline Alpha and adhered them. Die cut the hearts with Amuse Heart Trio die. And added a wooden arrow I painted with gold nail polish. A strip of washi adds a little punch at the bottom, bringing in the black dots of the cities on the map.

Thanks to the THD team for having me and I can't wait to see their projects!

On a personal note - as I write up this post I am waiting to depart for MI. My wonderful Mom is having serious health problems and I don't know what to expect or when I will be returning. So it'll be quiet around here for awhile. FYI. Positive thoughts are appreciated :)
