Paper craft project no. 220: You had me at hello

2014-07-08 You had me at hello

This week at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge blog, we’ve got an interesting challenge: use a line from your favorite flick. I have to confess, however, that Jerry Maguire is not my favorite movie. I haven’t even seen it (not a Tom Cruise fan) and I’m not in the least bit interested in seeing it…ever. So why did I pick that line then? Because it goes with the digi image that was provided by our sponsor, Eureka Stamps. My favorite movie of all time is 12 Angry Men (1957) and the line, “The burden of proof is on the prosecution. The defendant doesn’t even have to open his mouth. That’s in the Constitution” doesn’t really go with the heart bouquet image, ya know? So that famous Jerry Maguire line it is ;o)

For my card, I colored the heart bouquet with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut it. I partially stenciled the Reversed Chickenwire stencil (TCW) on my card base to ground my colored image (mounted using adhesive foam). I stamped the “hello” (from the Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments by STAMPlorations) and then hand-wrote the rest. I finished the card by applying Diamond stickles on the hearts so they sparkle.

A snippet of the convo DH and I had when I showed him the finished card:

DH: [after looking at the card] So did I have you at hello?
me: [thinking] Nah. You had me at hi.
DH: Oh, is that what I said the first time we met?
me: Yeah, and I remember feeling like I was going to pass out as I watched you walk toward me.
DH: Good thing you didn’t. I had my hands full with luggage.

Anyway, enough of the sappy stuff ;o)  I hope you’ll come visit the blog and check out the other projects that my teammates created for the challenge.

I’d like to enter my card to the following fun challenges: Addicted to Stamps and More #103 – Holiday (my card fits Valentine’s Day); CAS(E) This Sketch #83; and Crafting with Dragonflies #30 – CAS Card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. First, your snippet of your conversation with your husband is awesome! Love at first sight – and I’m totally on board with that! My husband and I met as a ‘set up’ concocted by my now sister-in-law (at the time my brother’s girlfriend). I was initially not happy that she had planned this; but by the evening’s end…well, you know how the story unravels. Second, so glad to hear I have company in not being a Tom Cruise fan (haven’t seen the movie either).YOur favourite line from 12 Angry Men: excellent. My favourite lines (campy as it is) comes from The Princess Bride. Too many to mention, although I have a story about the ‘Mawiage’ speech I’ll share at some point. Third: your card is fabulous! WOW, WOW and WOW!!
