Heart 2 Heart (Tack It To The Wall)

When I first met my HH, he had a tee shirt that he liked to wear. A lot. It was a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young shirt and by the time we met, the sleeves were cut off and it had faded from black to a dark gray. It wasn't long before there were holes in the shirt itself, but he continued to wear it anyway.  After we were married I told him, "Enough!  If you like the shirt that much, I'll tack it to the bedroom wall." And I did! I'm thinking I'm probably wearing out the Veranda and Perfect Day paper packs...someone's gonna tell me "Just tack 'em to the wall!" soon :)

The Heart 2 Heart challenge this week was a sketch.  I feel like my muse has gone missing though and I had a hard time creating something.  The first card is my attempt for the challenge:



Here was my initial attempt:

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm loving what you are doing, so don't "tack it to the wall" just yet! Your takes on the H2H sketch are awesome!

Very nice cards. I really like the details, colors, and different textures with the butterfly card.

I think they're both great, but the butterfly one is my fave. Love all the details. Thanks for playing along with us at H2H!

Marie, both cards are awesome! I love those pp's too, and can't get enough of them! They're timeless, just like your HH's shirt.

Both cards are amazing... I like how the second one still follows the patern, but just loosely... So nice

Karen Day said...

Oh, Marie - both cards are wonderful! Your first card (with the tickets) just might be the nicest card I've seen in a while... I think you're on a roll here. Thanks for playing this week at H2H :o)

" Me likey". I love the perfect day paper pack too, do not tack it to the wall- unless it is wallpaper! Lol!

These are amazing. I love your take on the sketch and the color schemes are awesome. I am so loving the butterfly however the ticket card is so whimsical. Great job.

Hi Marie!
You are too funny with your husbands shirt story. DO NOT stop using those paper packets. They don't wear out (HA!!)
Thanks for joining us at H2H!
