Michelle Perkett's Love Letter Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to Michelle Perkett's LOVE LETTER BLOG HOP! We are 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. I chose my Mother who is no longer with us, she is now an Angel in heaven and watches over me from up above. I am sending her my love and my poem so she knows I am thinking of her today and everyday! If you got here from Jenn Dove's site then you are in the right place. If not then start at the beginning here at Michelle's Blogspot. I hope you enjoy all of the entries and leave a comment so that we know you were there. Here are my creations for this Blog Hop Challenge. I am also entering this creation to The Diecut Dreams Challenge because their theme this week is "Have a Heart"...

I made a mailbox and a card and put my own poem inside my card. The image is from Michelle Perkett called "Love Letter Fairy" who is flying all around the world delivering love letters. Isn't she adorable? I created my own template for my mailbox and used double sided papers from K & Company called Smitten. I used my Martha Stewart lace border punch to decorate the end of my mailbox that opens. The heart flag on my mailbox actually goes up or down depending on if there is mail. Here you see it up because my poem to my Mother is inside. I used similar papers for my card. The base of my card is red and I added some gold mesh fabric to give the background some sparkle. I colored my image using Adobe Fireworks CS4. I added some hearts, glitter, gems, pink organza ribbon and a red heart hat pin with a Swarovski crystal on it. I created my poem using Microsoft Word and found a photo that I took of a red rose. Using Adobe Photoshop I inserted my poem in to the red rose. Please leave me a comment and let me know how I did and you can vote for me at the end of the blog. Now on to the next blogspot which is Marias's. If you loose your way here is the complete list. I know it is a long one but it will be worth the trip on the Love Boat!!!

Well, I hope you have fun and enjoy all the wonderful creations!

Sandi said...

Well, you have made me cry this early in the morning! More so since this passed Thursday was Mom's birthday, wow, she would have been 82.
I know that both Mom and Dad would be proud of ALL of your creations!
I saw the pride in their eyes when we went to one of your ballroom dance competitions back in the '80's. Your Latin dances were so amazing, and I felt that pride too, and I still do.

Love you very much - your sister - Sandi

Dear Pattie,
I was surfing the Internet when I stumbled upon this blog post. My mother passed away in November 2007. I miss Mom everyday. Some days, though, the missing is greater like on Mother's Day. I hadn't intended to write a Mother's Day post. However, your poem just reached out and grabbed me. The poem said exactly what I would want to Mom to know. I am writing to let you know that I used your poem today in my Mother's Day post. It is a lovely poem. Thank you so much for writing it.
