Romantic Lyrics – it’s a FCD Blog Hop

Hi peeps! It is that time of the month – the time for a Firecracker Designs Blog Hop. This month the theme is Romantic Lyrics – to create something inspired by one of our favorite love songs. FUN! More info about the Blog Hop will follow at the end of this post.


Now over to my card for today. I knew right away what song I wanted to use. I saw Walk the line a couple of months ago (yeah, I know, but I usually get to see the movies like two years later…) and I was totally hooked on Johnny Cash. I loved him before, but now, wow… And he has this song that is soooo moving: Rose of my Heart. Aaaand I happen to have THE most magnificent Rose stamp from FCD.

Jan 8 Both the rose and the wonderful sentiment is part of the Paper Roses set. I’ve incorporated quite a few black details as a tribute to the Man in Black but kept the embellishment simple, letting the beautiful stamp get the most of the attention.

Now over to the blog hop info.


******************************


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).**


Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to

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!


Thanks for joining us!!!

Beautifully colored and eye poppping!

It was a great movie! I loved it, too. Of course, I grew up on Johnny Cash and even married a guy who loved his music even more than me. His story was an inspiration...what a rough life he led. But LOVE tamed him, huh! Your card is so beautiful. I love that rose!! Thanks so much for sharing some of your time and art with us. You are all so talented.
