Love at first sight Blog hop

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
tomorrow I'll miss you
remember I'll always be true
and then while I'm away
I'll write home everyday and I'll
send all my loving to you!

Hello everyone! Welcome to the Love At First Sight Blog Hop hosted by Sandra 365 Days Of Cricut day 4 of my Beatles week!. If you are here from Jenny@ Crazy about Cricut than you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning Here. For this blog hop Sandra is celebrating her anniversary of when she met her hubby 8 years ago "It was Love At Fist Sight", also her 7th wedding anniversary, and of course Valentine's Day! She has asked us all to make a Love-Themed Gift for someone that we love and we will be sharing pictures of us with the person we love.

I decided to make a card for my baby sister Gena! I am the oldest of 4 girls, we were all heartbroken when the baby {she is 18} moved to Georgia with her boyfriend who is in the Military. I promised her that I would send her at least 2 cards a month! This card is inspired by her favorite Beatles song All My Loving!! { the song today isn't sung by the Beatles but this is her favorite version of the song from the movie Across the universe}

This is one of my favorite pics of us being nerds we always laugh so much when we are together
 { she is the one in the front}
This is me and her this past Christmas
Ok now on to my card!

I love, love the face on this little cutie!!
Here is the inside

 Materials used:
  • Create a critter cart {for card base cut @ 5.5 inches}
  • Twinkle toes cart {she is cut @ 3.5 inches}
  • Wide eyed kids face assortment
  • white gel pen
  • K&Company Valentines paper stack
  • I made the sentiment using my computer
Oh did I mention that I have some yummy blog candy to give away?!!
 I am giving away a $15.00 gift certificate to Market Street Stamps!!!
To win all you have to do is
  1. Be a follower
  2. Leave me a comment telling me what your favorite Beatles song is!
That's it easy peasy!! Now it is time for you to hop on, your next stop is the super talented Denise@ Designs from my heart! Don't forget to join me tomorrow for day 5 of my Beatles week! Have a great day hopping!

This is a great card! Must be hard having your sister so far away :( Favorite Beatles.... that is hard... maybe... Will you still need me, will you still feed me - when I'm 64 :) That has to be one of my favorites anyway. Or maybe Generation or Eleanor Rigby... see, told you it was hard :) I am a new follower -thought I already was!

Sue in CT said...

Very cute card. I know your sister will love it. My favorite Beatles song???? How do you pick one??? Ok, lately I would say it is "Here comes the Sun" since we are still buried under 3 feet of snow. (Even the church put out a sign saying "who ever is praying for snow, please stop"). For a long time I really liked "Yesterday"....but then again I really liked just about everything they did. Since I have to pick one....Here comes the Sun. I like the upbeat tempo and it is a great song.

Love it! And love that you used the computer for the sentiment cuz I wanted to know where to buy the stamp from!
My husband and I had "Let It Be" as our wedding song... yep, we were hippies at the time!
I love a lot of the Beatles songs it's so hard to choose one. But maybe, today in Alaska it would have to be .."Here Comes the Sun" ... or in our case "Where is the Sun!" ;0)
Off to the next blog!

I'm not a big Beatles fan but I do like A Hard Day's Night. My husband just recently found a group online called Betallica. They take Beatles lyrics and put them to Metallica music. You should check them out. My husband likes them but I could do without...to each his own.
