The theme of the Hop is BOOKS. Do you like to read? I love to read! I love it so much I sometimes have to read a new book twice--once to devour it,while ink runs from the corners of my mouth, and a second time to leisurely stroll through the story.
I have at least three more copies of this book. My son loved it (he's now 26), my daughter loved it (16 years old now) and I continue to read it (almost every night) to my 4 year old granddaughter.
I used Caterpillar digi-image and colored him with my trusty Copics. I tore some paper for a textured background, added a library check-out card for the "bookish" theme, and tore and cut pieces from a page in a spare book. When my granddaughter saw this card, she looked at me with love in her eyes and asked, "You made this for me?" How could I say no to that??!!
I made an easel card for Hambo's Wee Henry Snorkel digi-image. Easel cards are the easiest, unusually- folded card to make. Just fold your standard half a sheet of 8.5x11" cardstock in half, then fold the top part in half again, folding toward the inside of your card. You now have an easel on which to prop up the front of your card! Easy peasy!
I colored Balloon Girl digi-image with my Copics and set her off on her journey. I adhered her onto the background with some dimensional pop dots.
I imagine she'll be gone for almost three months (hint, hint).
And that's my library of book-inspired cards, all made with my Hambo digi images. Next on the blog hop is Laura's blog, but before you leave, did you guess them all?? Here are the books that inspired the cards. Please leave a little love before you drift off. Make sure you leave a comment on all blogs as there is blog candy involved for everyone who comments on every blog in the hop. Good luck, have fun and Happy crafting!
