CSCC 65 is Sleepless in Seattle with red hearts required.  I love it.  I was born and raised in Seattle and I love when it's in the movies...It could be a star!

Call me what you will, but I love maps.  They bring back good memories and send me into a dream world of travel and wonderful things to see and do.  When Sam takes his son, Jonah, to the map hanging on the wall, my heart skipped a beat.  I always loved those maps at school, so I used the maps in the movie to inspire the Anniverary card I made for my husband.  The map on the wall wasn't the only one in the movie;  there was a map showing the cross-country flights, the globe in Tiffany's window, and at the end, as the camera panned away from the Empire State Building it became map of the lights.
I used words from"The Heart Does Go On", the song from last weks challenge movie, "Titanic" printed on the computer and cutout to look like directional signs.  The signs and hearts are glued to the United States portion of a World map.  It was sitting around, and my husband wanted to toss way, I could use it, and I did!

There isn't any stamping on the front but I stamped inside.  It's plain inside except the words.  This is from the "Sweethearts" stamp set from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.  I used Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White cardstock from Stampin' Up.

Thanks for coming by, and remember maps make great backgrounds for projects if you don't have any more room to put them on the walls.


  1. What a fabulous idea, Jackie! The map is a great inspiration and love the saying and hearts too, great card!

  2. I love that part and want a map like that too! Now I know where my "map love" comes from. :)
    This is a great card! I didn't realize how often maps were shown in the film. Nice!

  3. This is great Jackie! I always get a chuckle out of the scene where Sam takes Jonah to the map and starts counting off all the cities between them and Baltimore. Ya done good Grammie! :o)

  4. Oh - Jackie, how clever!! I LOVED all the maps and criss crossing in this movie - and this is so super sweet! LOVE the maps and the directional arrows that it has!! SOOO lovely!!! Thanks so much for playing along with us over at Cinema Saturday!!!
    Big big hugs!

  5. What a fun creation! I love maps too - don't know what it is - I used to love drawing pretend ones when I was little like a pirates treasure map! love your hearts and signs!
