OH How I Love Reading!!

Good Wednesday morning, friends!! Looks like it's going to be another steamin' hot day in Southwestern Ontario! Yeehaw! I'm so ready for summer...how about you?? Can't wait to sit out on my deck under the patio umbrella and READ!!

I'm very excited because I bought a Kobo ereader a few weeks back and I've been thoroughly enjoying it! To be honest, I haven't been reading much lately at all, because I just haven't had the time.....and this is tragic because most of you know how much I LOVE to read! But now that I have this new ereader, it's really made me take some time out to do something I love. (Actually, it's just making me stay up an hour or two later at night! Heehee!)

Anyway, about a year ago, a friend of mine who reads the same kind of things I do, recommended a trilogy to me and said that I would really like it. So when I got my Kobo, the first book I bought was The Hunger Games. Well, let's just say that I only started reading it about a week and a half ago and now I am halfway book number 3! Seriously. Such good books!

So in honour of my return to reading, I'm going to share this card with you featuring the lovely LUCY! She's from the Everyday Girls release of Moonlight Whispers stamp from a couple of months back....and she's probably my favourite from that release! Doesn't she look like she's in her own little world?!

I used some papers form the Tickled Pink pad by My Mind's Eye.....love their stuff! I coloured Lucy up using my Copic markers in coordinating colours, cut her out with one of my Nesties and sponged around the frame while she was still in the die. I added some fun green crocheted lace trim and the sentiment is one of two that come with Lucy. Lastly I made up a little punch/button/twine embellishment layer a la Joanne Basile, one of my fave stampers and a sweet person. Love how she adds these cute little features to her cards!

Anyway, I'm busy packing up the new June stamps! Eeeee! We'll be starting Krafty Peeks next week, so stay tuned! OH! And did I mention.....Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps will be introducing another new artist?? Shhhhh! Keep it under your hats! haha!

Have a wonderful day and happy kraftin'!!

I love this image, and the card you have created. But then I seem to love all your stamps. You are bad for my wallet ;)

It made my day when I saw you had visited my amateur blog. You are a celebrity :)
