Guest Designer for the Cinema Saturday Challenge Blog-Sleepless in Seattle

I was so excited when Brooke and Sankari chose my Love Remains the Same card based on the movie-Australia for the Audrey award. I was the Guest Designer for this week's Cinema Saturday Challenge. The movie for inspiration is Sleepless in Seattle. This card opens in the middle and the MAGIC is the inside of the card.

Sleepless in Seattle really is one of my favorite movies. I love how Annie tries to figure out if she truly loves Walter. I think it is so funny when her brother tells her that his wife told him that they either had to get married or break up! Her mother tells her that it was like Magic and when Sam explains how he touched his wifes hand to help her out of the car, it was like Magic! That is the inspiration for my card. I think when we meet the person that we are meant to be with, deep down, you know that this is the one. I can't say that when my husband touched my hand that it was Magic but I probably knew and I grew to love him deeply!

This isn't my usual romantic card. I created a fun card because this movie is fun along with being romantic! For the front of the card I printed the hands from the internet and colored them with Copic markers. I also printed the saying from the computer. The patterned paper is Teresa Collins. I ran the grey, pink, heart and cameo through different Cuttlebug folders. The cameos are from a stamp made by Stamps Happens, Inc. I colored them in with an embossing pen and embossed them with black embossing powder and cut them out.

For the inside of the card, the stamp is Queen Kat Designs. The red chipboard letters are Marcella attached to silver Prisma paper. The rabbit is an old Easter die cut. The paper pieced hat, wand and flowers are my own design. I added punched stars and lips. I had a great time creating this card! Thanks to Brooke and Sankari for giving me this opportunity!


  1. Oh my gosh, I'm first to tell you I had to get a refill on my popcorn, there is so much to look at and enjoy. I loved this movie too and you did a wonderful job with your card (but then you always do!!!) I love the magic theme you came up with and the prismatic paper is wonderful. All the symbolic images you have on the front of the card, so nice and so romantic. You did it again my friend, you are the master..........congrats on the guest design team did yourself proud!!!
