Hello! I am thrilled to have been invited to tag along on the Firecracker Designs By Pamela Design Team's Blog Hop! I will "officially" start on the Design Team as of March 1, but hopped on board for this blog hop just for FUN!

Welcome to the ROMANTIC LYRIC themed Blog Hop for Firecracker Designs By Pamela and my Bloggers Challenge post!


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.

As I mentioned above, todays BLOG HOP has a ROMANCE or LOVE SONG theme... I chose On the Wings of Love to go with this FUN DIGITAL image from FIRECRACKER DESIGNS BY PAMELA. To get this look, I colored the wings with my Copic Marker BG10 and then went over it with the Waterfall Blue Stickles. The heart portion, I colored with my BG49 Copic marker and the swirls I used V04, but then went over it with my Purple Stickles...

Details: Heart with Wings is a DIGI from FIRECRACKER DESIGNS BY PAMELA and the words are from the stamp set Have Courage

Ink & Cardstock: Soft Sky, Teal, Lavender and white, Copics mentioned above

Accessories: Waterfall and Purple Stickles, Nestibilities, Dimensionals, Water Dew Drops, Mini Glue Dots, Paper Piercing Tool, Purple Gingham Ribbon

For the LOVE SONG - you can watch the video and follow along with the lyrics below...

ON THE WINGS OF LOVE (Jeffrey Osborne)

Just smile for me and let the day begin
You are the sunshine that lights my heat within
I'm sure that you're an angel in disguise
Come take my hand and together we will rise

On the wings of love
Up and above the clouds
The only way to fly
Is on the wings of love
On the wings of love
Only the two of us
Together flying high
Flying high
Upon the wings of love

You look at me and I begin to melt
Just like the snow when a ray of sun is felt
I'm crazy bout ya baby can't you see
I'd be delighted if you could come with me

On the wings of love
Up and above the clouds
The only way to fly
Is on the wings of love
On the wings of love
Only the two of us
Together flying high
Flying high
Upon the wings of love

Yes you belong to me
I'm yours exclusively
Right now we live and breathe
Each other Insepreble it seems,
We're flowing like a stream
Running free flowing
On the wings of love

On the wings of love
Up and above the clouds
The only way to fly
Is on the wings of love
On the wings of love
Only the two of us
Together flying high
Together flying high

On the wings of love
Up and above the clouds
The only way to fly
Is on the wings of love
On the wings of love
Only the two of us
Together flying high
Together flying high
Upon the wings of love

Now that you are all ROMANCED...A note about the Bloggers Challenge! This weeks challenge is to create a card using the sketch below.

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 the talented DONNA MOORE's BLOG 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!
