Sleep is Good, but Books are Better
Happy Friday everyone! Today’s card is a special one I made for a special parent I had last year. I’ve mentioned her before here on the blog…the one that lent me her books and/or recommended great reads to me. She was so sweet and had me READING good literature for FUN again :) What a priceless gift. She knew just what books I would like and after a few heavy ones, gave me the Twilight series for “a light summer read.” I never jumped on the Twilight bandwagon when it started many years ago and purposely stayed away from the movies…but guess what? I feel in love with the characters and love story. So much so, that it took me a while to get into another book. I watched each movie as I finished each book and thoroughly enjoyed them as well :) No, I’m not an “Edward” groupie, but I did love them as a couple :) So I’m giving the books back to this mom and knew just what kind of thank you card I wanted to make. A bookmark card with the Clearly Besotted Book Worm stamp set. I just adore this sentiment and curved it slightly so it would fit onto the Basic Banner die. Here’s a look at the bookmark…
Could those little book worms be any cuter sitting together on that library tag? I’ll fill in her name on the front pocket as well to make it perfectly personalized :) Hey! It’s our Thanksgiving Day long weekend! We are heading to a family wedding so be sure to stop in tomorrow as I celebrate Kurt and Dayle’s nuptials :) Have a great start to YOUR weekend as well! I LOVE FRIDAYS!
