Annika Reads a Book!

It's been way too long swince I've read. I always say I want to make more time for it but I just haven't lately. I want to remedy that and I think this sweet Annika from Roses on Paper can be just the inspiration for me! She looks to me like she's found a couple of her favorite books and I think I'll do the same!

Annika is from The Greeting Farms Stamps that you can pick up from Summer at Roses on Paper. I colored her with copics and added just a tiny bit of Glossy Accents to her barrette in her hair and well, I had to stickle her skirt and the flowers! I think I have a glitz addiction! The flowers are Prima Flowers and the paper is from BasicGrey and I colored the ribbon with my copics. I added a few Dew Drops around the corners and think she's just adorable!

Well, since I've seen the new Harry Potter movie, I think I'm going to pluck up the courage to reread the last book. It's the only one I haven't re-read way too many times so it's calling my name. So go pick up a book and get caught up in something bigger than ourselves. Let one of your favorite authors take you to a place outside of your own world. And tell me what you're reading! I'm always on the outlook for something new to enjoy!

Card Ingredients:

Annika from The Greeting Farm, Dew Drops, Prima Flowers, Stickles, copics, nestabilities, ribbon.

That is sooo sweet. I am an obsessive reader. I have to say "no reading" to myself until _______ is done. I could read & never stop. My favorite author Nora Roberts has a new book & I can not start it until Sunday. See what I mean.

Such a wonderful and cute card!♥

Before I became a mother, I was reading books all the time, but for the last 10 years I almost haven't picked up a book...
This summer I've shocked my self, and have read 4 books, just now started to read the Twilight books - it's hard to put the book down... =0)

Big hugs,
