Gina- your card and all the pictures were so sweet and I really enjoyed seeing the,m. Thanks for sharing them.
I was stumped with this challenge and then realized I was just over-thinking it. Once I slept on it, I actually created four cards, for this challenge.
The first book is a classic (ha-ha, like me).
This book was written by by Felix Salten, Janet
Schulman, Lou Fancher, and Steve Johnson. This edition was released in 2005.
I was pretty literal in creating this card. I used Theresa's "Sending Sunshine" stamp set to create the scene.
My next book is one that my Dad had given to me, and was very special to me. It is called "The Littlest Angel" by Charles Tazewell. It was originally published in 1946 and is about a cherub and his present to the Son of God. It was re-released again in Oct. 2008.
For my card, I combined images from Asela's "The Journey" with butterflies and flowers from Theresa's "Sending Sunshine" stamp sets. The frame is a Nestie die cut. The wings are a cut butterfly.
My next card is from a book that my children received from my sister. I can't tell you how many times this book was read, but I am sure it was their favorite book. It is called "Drummer Hoff" byAdapted
by Barbara Emberley (Author), Ed Emberley (Illustrator). E
d Emberley won the 1968 Caldecott Medal for his bold illustrations for Barbara Emberley's jaunty adaptation of the cumulative folk song. Tells of seven soldiers who build a magnificent cannon and Drummer Hoff, who
fires it off.
My card uses the pattern of the book cover and the color palette for my inspiration. The water bucket is from the "Happy Spring" set. I Cuttlebugged some of the background papers and added a little bling too.
Since I thought of another favorite book and I had time today to make it, I thought I'd share this one as well.
This card is based on the book "Pat the Bunny" by Dorothy Kunhardt.
I used the flower from Spring Mix, dusted with Flower-soft- to imitate the bunny, and the sentiment to mimic the book title.
Thank you for stopping by!
