Saturday Centus - So...you want a job at Hallmark?

Jenny Matlock
Welcome to week forty-one of Saturday Centus.

I've been nice for two weeks now giving you fun little easy, peasy guest prompts.

But since it's close to Valentines Day I want to do something extra special to show you how much I love you all.

I'm not 100% certain, but I think a lot of you probably have dreamt, albeit briefly, of being a Hallmark Superstar. It's OK to admit it. You're among friends here. How can you not want to attain the absolute pinnacle of writing success...cheesy sentiments for greeting cards!

With that in mind I scoured the web searching for the perfect romantic picture for you to create a mushy Hallmark-ish masterpiece around.

It was not an easy task but I finally came across the perfect image...and here it is:


I know. I know. It's touching, isn't it?

Take a few deep breaths to calm your emotions.

Ready to continue now?

OK. So for this weeks Saturday Centus your challenge is to use UP TO 50 words to write a Hallmark card around this image for VALENTINES DAY!

Isn't that a cool challenge?

You're welcome!

I knew the second I laid eyes on this romantic little picture you would all be overwhelmed.

So...to recap...

50 words or less based on the picture written in the style of a Valentines Day greeting card!

You have the entire week to link your work to the meme and you can link more than one story if you like. Please try mightily to visit all the other weeks.

Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.

Please e-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Link anytime between now and next Saturday morning.

And Happy Valentines Day Centusians! I heart you all!

Hahahahahahah! Heeheeheeheehee! Oh my...I don't know about this one. I will consider it but I have the perfect excuse not to participate: my son has an out of town swim meet and i will have no internet access. You buying that? Good. (still giggling)

SPLAT! In case you didn't know, that was the sound of my head exploding. I was all set to continue my family secrets saga, and this is what I get for a prompt? Oh well, if Snookie can land on the NYT bestseller list, I can probably come up with something. Just sayin'.... Kat
