We are posting a bonus poem in honor of this hop as well as Valentine's Day!  "How do I Love Thee?" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.



This poem inspired me to make a few cards for my Valentines... 








If you choose to join us by scrapping a layout, card or project that uses inspiration from the poem and you link it to Scrap that Poetry's blog, you will get 5 extra chances to win the gift certificate.

I love your cards. The first to for some reason has a slight masculine feel to it. Also, I was the one who commented above you on the Paper Connections blog and suggested Roxie. I decided to check out your blog since you liked my suggestion, and lo and behold you were having a blog hop so I just had to hop along.
