Outlawz site, it was a card I started long before all the rush of the season began. The challenge was to create a card in honor of National Book Month. Your card needed to either shows book images on it... or.... be something you created that was inspired by a book.
My card, obviously, used images of books from Magnolia stamps. I love this adorable image of Tilda with her little hand braced to cover a yawn. :-) It reminds me so much of when my daughter was younger and we would read a story every night before she fell off of to sleep. Now, she goes to bed listening to music.... *sigh*.... they grow up to fast!
I colored my image with my Copic markers and cut her out before adding her to my card base of Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion card stock. I used my Scor-Buddy to make a "quilt" impression and a half a doilie at the top to mimic somewhat of a bed and pillow. I cut the top of the card a bit shorter to expose the punched inner card stock to mimic a ruffle. My sentiment came from Melanie Muenchinger's stamp set, "The Best Things in Life".
I hope you take time to play along and maybe even remember how good a book or two made you feel. I'm a HUGE book fan and I'm especially happy that both my kids love to read as well.
Have a great and thanks for stopping by!! P.S. I am looking to get in touch with someone who stopped by my blog during the Gina K Inspiration Hop who's name was simply.. "CinBoopRella Place"... if it's YOU or you know who this person is, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. :-) Thanks!!
