In Love With Books

Hello... Friday! How do I love thee... especially come 5pm! :)

Today, I have A Day For Daisies (ADFD) new releases for you and they have new challenge "Dots or stripes". This new sets are called "In Love With Books" and some of the images really reminds me of my childhood. I read a lot when I was a kid, thanks to my older brother, Jeff who introduced met o the joy of reading. Literally, during school vacations, I would spend my day reading. Jeff already had a big collection of books by the time I started, so I never ran out of books to read.

I also love reading comic books like Asterix & Obelix, Lucky Luke, etc., which sadly they don't seem to be popular here in the States. They were very popular in Indonesia back then and I think still do in Europe.

Anyway, let me stop rambling and share my card. For my card I used the book image and decided to combine it with three other images that are also from ADFD.

                        
Challenges:
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - Card for a child
My Time To Craft - On The Spot

Basically, I arranged the book image on Microsoft Word and added the angel and fairies image to each book cover, then colored them all. Wouldn't this card would be perfect to hold a Barnes & Nobles gift certificate inside for a kid who loves reading?

I also covered all the book spines with stickles.  Kids books always more fun when they have glitter, don't you think? :) You can check out the other DT gals creations HERE and when you're there make sure you download the free image as well. Tammy always give free image whenever new challenge start.

That's it from me today. Have some stamp shopping to do. Seriously, with each company coming out with new sets every month, it's getting harder to keep up with my stamping budget. Any tips? Which company you buy from every month? Please share and have a great Friday!! :)

PS: Thank you so much for all of you who left some love and vote for my project at May Arts! I really appreciate your help. You gals are the best! Should know by early next week whether I make it or not. Keeping my fingers crossed. :)
