Books & Whiff of Joy

Any of you fans of the Fable Heaven series? I love them. The series is about 2 kids that found out that their grandparents are the gurdians of mythical & magical creatures. Since I was a kid, I always love Greek mythology, fantasy books, and never quite outgrow it either. Well, to this day, I am a kid at heart. :) For me books like Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, etc., are easy reading and entertaining. And I love that they have good moral lessons in it, too.

I am planning to get the latest book in the series by this weekend, so we'll see if I get to make any cards, then. Reading is my other joy. Once I start reading a good book, everything else is forgotten.

So, before I get to that point, I want to play with this Willow stamp from Whiff of Joy. The stamp designed by Elisabeth Bell and I have to say her image is simply beautiful. I saw some really cute ones online and they're definitely go on my wish list.

Here's the card that I made, using TPE67 sketch. I think this is my first time entering their challenge. Can't remember, LOL, there's too many fun challenges out there.

And it's funny, yesterday I saw a challenge about using patterned paper and the gal wrote, "We know you like to look at your pretty paper, but you got to use it. It only hurt on the first cut, after that it gets better." It makes me laugh, because it's so true. It also make me realize that I am pretty normal. I am not the only one who buy pretty paper and then have a hard time to actually use it, even  though I buy it because I want to use it for my page or card. :)

That's it for today's post. Hope you day is beautiful. Hugs, Vera.

Very sweet card! I agree about the paper. I have two kinds...too ugly to me for they were in a Pad or something. And, then the paper that is too pretty to use!!! Can't win! I love your card and I did an EB today too!
