All Dressed Up - Inspiration Post

Hello, my friends!

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments on my All Dressed Up blog hop post! It has been great to see so many of you stopping by, and a very warm welcome to all my new friends! The blog hop will continue until January 22nd.

If you have already participated in the hop, you will have seen this darling image a number of times. I just had to use her for my monthly inspiration post! This is another one of the newly released images, and is called "Little Bookworm". You can find it in the store HERE, along with all the other fabulous All Dressed Up Images.

For my card I simply coloured up the image and fussy cut it all out. Then I settled her into this sweet little library scene, and attached the included sentiment! Working on this card, I was reminded of many visits to the library with my girls when they were little. We'd all leave carrying bags full of wonderful reading material! :o)


Materials Used:
Papers: Basic Grey - Oxford;
Image: All Dressed Up - Little Bookworm;
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Lacey Ovals.

I hope I've given you some fun inspiration today! 
I'll have another All Dressed Up post next month! :o)

One of my favorite haunts - I love books and being surrounded by books so much that my house looks like a library. Your card is delightful and beautifully colored.

Here's that fabulous paper again and oh my, it is so perfect for this image. You did a super job placing her in here... honestly, I can't see a single snip mark. It looks like you layered the images with software, it's so perfect.
