Michelle Perkett Love Letter Blog Hop

Welome to your next stop on the Michelle Perkett Love Letter Blog Hop, if you came here from Mez's Blog you are on right track. If not please head over to Michelle's Blog to start the hop.

We will be celebrating Valentines day by writing a special love letter to the love of our lives! It can be your husband, boyfriend, mother, sister, daughter or son, or a loved one who is no longer with us. Michelle graciously provided us her "love letter fairy" stamp to work with. She is flying around the world delivering love letters! (and candy hearts here and there, too!:)

For my card, I used this yummy Paper Company paper from the Huggs & kisses line called Swirly hearts that I got from Archiver's. The ribbon I have had for some time, got it at Target in the $1 section, added some bling, and a little Martha Stewart heart border punch. I am going to send this to my hubs Grandpa Ollie, we just lost Gma in Decemebr right before Christmas and she was a very special part of our family. I want him to know we are all thinking of him during his time and shower him with some love! I am still working on coming up with just the right words to comfort him.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me some LOVE, now head on over to Sarah's Blog to contniue the hop!
