Romantic Lyrics FCD Blog Hop, Welcome!!

The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM (EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.

This is a “circular blog hop” where the only beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from! (It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)

The winner will be chosen from a mystery blog hostess that we don’t even know who it will be until the hop is over…so that’s why you’ll want to leave a comment on EVERY blog, so you don’t miss out!

**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Mon, at 8:00 PM (EST).**

OK, now that business has been taken care of let's take a look at my card for this hop! We were challenged to use lyrics from a love or romantic song.
I chose "Unchained Melody" as my love song, not sure why except it was a favorite when I was young. (that should tell you how ancient I am! ..sigh) I love the sound of the Righteous Brothers, for all of you who are too young to know who that is click here to listen to this beautiful song and see who the Righteous Brothers are.

 
 

I used FCD's new set called Heart Strings.  This is a perfect set for Valentine's but it is definitely versatile enough to be used for any romantic card. This set has gorgeous flourishes and a Romance stamp that is absolutely beautiful, there is also a dainty "I love you" that is perfect for most any card. As you can see, I used the old, distressed look for this challenge, perhaps it is because it was so long ago that this song was popular. Be sure to leave your comment with you email information in order to be eligible for the give away from Pamela!


Now, to continue the Blog circle, you will need to hop on over to Melisa's
and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started!  Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!

Oh, the Righteous Brothers...I have all of their albums!! Unchained Melody is one of my favorites so that also tells you how old I am. I wasn't a baby when they came out..I remember them too well. I'm 63 now!! Your card is amazing! I love this theme that you all used. Thank you for the investment of your time into something that blesses us.
