Cinema Saturday Challenge
Sleepless in Seattle

Another fun Challenge by the talented gals over at Cinema Saturday ChallengeThe movie was Sleepless in Seattle. It has been years since I really WATCHED this movie. It is such a great story of lost love and finding love. The Love story that I wanted to capture was the LOVE between the Father and his son. I found this to be a powerful part of the movie. It was sweet to watch Jonah's love for his father and how he wanted to find that special someone for him to love. This film still gets me teary, even though I have seen it many times.

I drew a Pixie Dust Image special for this card. I call this image Buddies. I drew a father and son together. I also added the lovable Teddy Bear...HOWARD. The Challenge asked for the use of a red heart somewhere on the project. I cut out a red paper polka-dot heart for this. I took a fun paper that had measuring tapes and cut two of them out and wrapped them around a striped paper heart that I also cut out. I took my colored Pencils and added a "darkened" shading around the hearts and papers used on the card. I added the sentiment Love can not be Measured on some cardstock and added this to my card. There is also a little RED Heart on Howard the Teddy Bear. I colored the Buddies Image with Prismacolor pencils.

You can find this Buddies image in the Studio Shop!
