Putting Your Heart on the Line

Welcome to the first Hawaii Ink Blog Hop! You have probably hopped over from Brooke's blog and checked out her amazing creations.
We are so excited that you are joining us on our first of many Hops to come.
I think we all have had a blast putting this together and playing with all the new products from the 
Spring Catalog which just launched. So grateful to be a part of such a talented group of woman.

This card is called "Puttin' Your Heart On the Line"
I showed it to my husband who is very crafty and my biggest supporter. I always bounce samples off him for feedback. His comment was it looks like a person hanging from a clothes line -then he said hey it is a good Heart on the Line card. Then I saw the card in a whole new light. Isn't it funny how we all see different things when we look at certain cards? LOL  I thought it was a great VDay message card.

I tried my hand at the technique that is all the rave now called the chalkboard technique.

My kids love this card! They saw it on my table as I was getting my cards ready for class tomorrow and they
went gaga over this one. So I had to share this one for the hop today.
