Default WT457 - Curl Up with a Good Book (12/12/13)

Greetings from an EXTREMELY frigid Chicago!!! When it's this cold, I love to curl up on the couch in front of a fire and read a book and listen to the crackle of the fire to "hear" the warmth.

Today, I challenge you to draw inspiration from your favorite book to create your project. If you just can't decide on one, grab a book image off your stamp shelf because I'm sure you have several to choose from if you are a book addict like Sabrina (cook22). Her favorite book is one with words and pages!

My favorite books are murder mystery novels, and there isn't much to put in a card there, so I was STUCK! I realized that what I liked about these books is the little breadcrumbs and clues that all come together at the end. On my card, I used VersaMark to "hide" my pattern in the background, but I outlined a "clue" in the corner for my murder mystery inspired card.
Don't forget to use WT457 in the keyword when uploading your project, so we can see what's all in the WT457 LIBRARY.

I can't wait to see how your favorite book (or books) inspires you!

We always recommend you post a link here for all to see. If you need help with that, here's a short story that will help...
1. Open 2 windows: One window for your project and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your project window. Highlight the address for your project. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Cool idea for a challenge! There will be lots of creativity going on with this one.

I was in Chicago this past weekend visiting my parents. It was cold and is probably even colder now. I'm glad to be back in Arizona.

Stay warm. A fire in the fireplace sounds lovely!

What a fabulous challenge for today! I LOVE books!! It was hard to pick just one. It's been extra cold here, too (yesterday it didn't get above zero) so reading is a perfect activity. Here's my card..

Default Mysterious India

Here is my card for the Curl up with a Good Book challenge. My good book this week was a Vish Puri mystery by Tarquin Hall. There are 4 books in the series so far and I hope the author continues to write them. Here is my card:
