China Hearts

My husband (as old regular followers know) works in China for weeks at a time.  Tomorrow he is coming back for a week.  This time his work break coincides with our 14th wedding anniversary, which is on Tuesday.  Whilst browsing the web today I found this romantic idea and I made my own version:
It has a map of where we are on one heart and where he is living and working in China on the other.
The one on the web I saw was on notonthehighstreet.com and uses genuine old maps, I haven't got any of those so used Google.  I drew around a heart stencil on each of the maps and cut them out.  I then simply stuck them onto red card and framed them.

I also made some bookmarks using the letter idea I showed you yesterday:
These were made by saving each of the individual letter photos from flickr (see yesterday's link), compiling & resizing each of the names in a word processing program, then cutting them out and laminating them.  To finish them off I used a hole punch and then tied on a piece of ribbon.

Hope you've enjoyed your weekend,
Thanks for reading and for any comments you may leave,
See you tomorrow,
