Remember When...

Hello friends,
Today I'm showing my last 'map' card, this time featuring Classic Hearts and I've also used Edgeabiliites®
the Classic Postage Stamp decorative insert to emboss a pattern across the top of the card.
A useful card for Valentine's pinpointing a memorable or romantic spot maybe...
Not long and it will be Valentine's Day, I've just seen all the chocolate goodies appearing in the 
shops right next to the Easter eggs! 
Back tomorrow.  I hope you all have a lovely day.

This is so lovely. The way you have used the map is inspirational, can be used for any occasion when a particular place holds special memories. Anne

Hi Christine.
What a fabulous idea with the map.
My husband and I lived 90miles apart during our courting days and each week we met at a junction half way on the M1. It is our 38th wedding anniversary this month so will use your card as my inspiration. Thanks

Hi Christine,
What a very clever and yet easy way to highlight a special place and draw your eye to the spot.
If you asked me why I come by everday I would have to say for cards like today. You give to us, always, ideas and tips that allow us to use our stash or new purchases in new and clever ways. Sometimes it is a different way to use something, other times it is a fresh introduction to an old technique and, like today, it can be just to remind us to recycle things we have around us and how to draw the viewers eye towards a focal point. That's why I visit.
Hope you don't have much longer to wait before Spellbinders final decision.
All the best Linda
