Love Letter ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge

lovelettermaureenplut

Good morning!  Are you in the mood for love?  I sure was making this card for the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, Love Letter! 

love letter challenge jan 15

I love love letters!  Nothing is sweeter than seeing those words of affection in print that you can read over and over again.  This challenge also reminds me of a song that I first heard back in my twenties…Love Letters by Ketty Lester (follow the link to see it on You Tube if the video doesn't show up here!)




 I just love it and was singing it as I made my card :)

Love letters straight from your heart, keep us so near while apart.

I’m not alone in the night, when I can have all the love you write.

I memorize every line and I kiss the name that you sign.

And darling then I read again right from the start,

Love letters straight from your heart.

Oh, does that bring back memories!  No text or email or tweet could ever give me that feeling of reading a love letter, paper and ink, and knowing that the object of your affection actually “touched” the same paper.  Ah, young love!
We have an awesome new sponsor, DeNami Design, who supplied each of the crew gals with a package of love-themed DeNami stamps!


The LEAD of the Love Letter challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate from DeNami Design! Head over to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge for more details and gorgeous samples from the Design Team!
