Peace, Love, Literature....

Usually I post on Thursday's with my card for the My Favorite Things sketch...but I am keeping my nephew right now and just never got a chance to get a card done using it. So instead, I am going to show you a little something I made using my new FAVORITE stamp set, I {heart} Books!! I am an avid reader, and although I love a good story, I absolutely refuse to read the same book twice. My mom, sister, grandma, friends, can all read the same book over and over again, but if I have read it, I don't want to read it again. Strange, I know. Well, I am pretty fond of a certain few authors, and I keep running into books at different places and I am never sure if I have read them or not. My step mom has the same problem, and to keep herself from re-buying a book that she already owns, she now keeps a list in a notebook by author of exactly what books she has purchased so that she is sure to not buy them twice......GENIUS!!!
I mean seriously, that is brilliant if you ask me!! So, when I saw this month's new set, I KNEW that I had to make myself a notebook to do the very same in! I used some retired Washington Apple DSP, and paired it with Riding Hood Red, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie. I used my Cuttlebug and Oval nesties to cut out the sentiment and it's layers. My main image was stamped on an MFT Perfect Panel, and then I colored it with my Copics. My buttons are from Basic Grey. For the spirals at the top, I used SU ribbons to decorate them...cute, huh!!
Well, that is it for me now...better head to bed(I am writing this Wednesday night) because Jared will be up early and I don't want to be exhausted!! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
Don't forget, the new MFT Kits are on sale!!
