MCT Head Of The Class Blog Hop ~ 143!





Good Morning!  Welcome to My Creative Time's Head of the Class Blog Hop!  Since this is HUGE hop, I'm going to get right to it...
You should have arrived here from the talented Miss Ruthie.  If you just popped in to see me then be sure to head over to Miss Emma's for the start.  I know you won't want to miss a chance to win  AWESOME blog candy!


My first card is for my husband for our anniversary...some of you might not be old enough to know what "143" means.  :)  However if you ever had a pager, then you probably know. lol!

That's how my husband and I would say "I love you" to each other throughout the day with our pagers.  We still use it now, just in texts.

I created the heart with scrap paper, heart dies, modeling paste, and inks.

I cut the number dies several times then glued them together to make them thicker.

This was fun to emboss and color on cork!


After heat embossing with white, I colored in the flowers with copic markers.  I then added stickles to the flower centers.  Glossy accents on the "hello" and some bling adds the finishing details!

I never had a pager so being an old lady didn't help me a bit. I am glad you explained. What a darling story and now the 143 totally makes sense. Well done.
