Beautiful Books Just a Note…Card

If there’s a stamp set featuring books, I can guarantee I’ll purchase it. The stamp set featured on today’s card is one of those sets that had to belong in my collection.  It’s Sugar Pea Designs, Beautiful Books. Books and reading are right up there with stamping and paper crafts as favorite pastimes for me. The only difference is that I’ve been reading and collecting books a lot longer than I’ve been stamping. 

This is one of those cards that can be used for just about any occasion.  I’m sending this “hello” note to another book loving friend.  There are so many cute little stamp images in this set but I’m completely smitten with the glasses and the simple bookmark.


The card design was inspired by the As You See It Challenge #266 .  I don’t think I’ve ever made a card with this type of diagonal design and now that I have, I have so many more ideas…thank you, LeAnne!

Thanks for taking the time to look in on my project.  I hope your week is off to a good start!

Take care,



  1. You did it again… Another fun, beautiful and classic card from you! I will say that I adore sugar pea designs but at the same time it’s a company that I forget to look up but not after seeing this card!

    Beautiful layout and I will admit… When I see books I do think of you! Hope you had a great day and thanks for the inspiration
