A “Bookish” Friendship – The Paper Players #677

My Favorite Things Our Story Friendship Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

My card share today is a sweet friendship card.  Besides card making, my other hobbies include cross-stitching and reading.  I always have a book in progress and sometimes more than one at a time.  Presently, I’m reading two books and listening to another.  I guess it may be a borderline obsession…but I’m ok with that.  And having worked a lot of years in libraries, it’s needless to say that I also have a lot of like-minded “bookish” friends to send cards to.

I pulled out two favorite book themed sets for my card.  The images are from My Favorite Things: Our Story stamp and die set and the sentiments (both outside and inside) are from Mama Elephant’s: Good Reads.  The pattern paper is from a 6 x 6 Craft Consortium pad: Bloom and Wild.  I also used this paper to “upholster” the comfy arm chair.

Here’s a look inside…

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’re having a nice day!  Our weather here in PA is cold but bright and sunny.  And here’s Olive after a long brisk walk soaking up the sun and surrounded always by her toys.

Take care,
