Birthday Wishes Book Worm

Evening all,

I really hope you have had a better day than me. Charlie has not slept all day and has been very whingy, his teeth are driving him mad. It really does not help when it is so hot as you just want to relax. But that is never going to happen with a crying baby. Anyway I am off to my Mums tomorrow for the night so I thought I would share two cards with you before I go. Here is the first:

I have used the great freebie image from DigiStamp Boutique and she is coloured with my Promarkers. The red and Blue papers are from my Papermania pads and the paper with text on is newspaper. The sentiment is hand typed and the Candi, Gems, Ribbon, Lace and Bow are all from my stash. I have followed the Papertake Weekly True colours theme hence the Red, White and Blue and the Recycle theme from Paper Makeup. I did not realise at the time that the newspaper article I have used is all about Britain so it was perfect. I only chose it as it had lots of text.The great sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp and worked so well for this card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft - Book Lover
Sunday Sketch and Stamp - Sketch
Papertake Weekly - True Colours
Paper Makeup Stamps - Recycle 2nd Entry

  7. Kelly, this is a fabulous card and being a bookworm, I really like the theme. Hope Charlie and you both have gotten some relief from the teething. It's so hard on Mums, when there's not much you can do to make the feel better.
