Michelle Perkett "Love letter" Blog Hop

Well it is Sunday, and Valentines day will soon be here.

Michelle Perkett wanted to celebrate Valentines day with a blog hop:O)
If you have come here from Pauline, you have come to the right place.
If not, go to Michelle Perkett's Enchanted Inspirations to start:O)

"We will be celebrating Valentines day by writing a special love letter to the love of our lives! It can be your husband, boyfriend, mother, sister, daughter or son, or a loved one who is no longer with us. I donate my "love letter fairy" stamp. She is flying around the world delivering love letters! (and candy hearts here and there, too!:)"

She would like us to make a project using the colours


As I am not into this tradition with celebrating Valentines day, I have to admit that this was a challenging one for me:OI

I found this cute mailbox template and thought that it would be perfect for this blog hop.
At least it has to with letters, lol:O)
To fit the image, I made it larger then the template.

I have coloured my "Love letter fairy" with watercolour pencils and watertank brush,
and added some golden stickles here and there.

I think this cute little charm is so beautiful:O)
Thank you Gry-Heidi.


Here you see the back of the mail box.
I have used some Magic Mesh for the big heart, some velvet ribbon, paper ribbons, pink gem stones, flowers and a large pink/gold brad.

Papers for this project:
Pink Bazzil Basic
DP is from Ladybug and Friends

As I sayed, I usually don't celebrate Valentines day, so I find it hard to write the letter:O( I have made this box for my husband. He is my best friend, and the true love of my life:O) We have bee trough soooooo many tough obstacles during our 14 years together, but we LOVE eachother more then anything, and nothing seems to teare us apart, fortunately:O) When we had our youngest, Pernille, the doctores found out that I had uterine cancer. We had to travel to Bergen for surgery. Paal, my Hubby, took care of 7 weeks old Pernille, and stayed with me the whole time:O) When I came up to the room after the surgery, he played the song I have linked under here, for me. That is a moment I will never forget:O) The surgery went well:O) Now I want to play this song for Paal, and for you, to tell him just how much I LOVE him!!;O) Please enjoy;

Westlife - You Raise Me Up

Your next stop on the blog hop is Kerri:O)

Enjoy and have a lovely Sunday.

We know each others stories so well now, but when you speak of yours, it does bring tears to my eyes. I am so pleased that you had Paal there to support you in your hours of need and that Pernille was well looked after when you recovered. Here's to many more years with your hubby and good health!!

P.S. I love the MailBox idea. The image is a sweetie! I hope the blog hop is a success!!
