You Can Travel in a Book!

This week's Bitten by the Bug challenge was to use the bookmark cut on the Animal Kingdom cartridge. I thought I would incorporate the bookmark into a card that can be used for the recipient's favorite books! I used the paper from Noel Mignon's newest kit, Rise & Shine. Love how bright and fun it is!

The sentiment was done using THIS set from JustRite. I love being able to use quotes and sayings I find right on the card! The little "story time" sentiment is from Crafty Secrets. I used my Nestibilities to cut the various size circles. I also sewed a transparency on 3 sides to give the card a "pocket" for the bookmark. : )

The lion was cut several times, distressed, and placed on pop dots for dimension.


Hope everyone had a great weekend! We are heading to the Science & Industry Museum today with Kyle to see the Harry Potter exhibit. It is sort of a belated birthday present. He is super excited to go! We have been reading the Harry Potter series together for the last year or so. We are currently on the 4th book, The Goblet of Fire. Should be fun!!!!
Have a WONDERFUL Memorial Day!!!!
