A Good Book
I hope your Tuesday is off to a great start. Today is the15th, so that means I get to share another Dueling Darlings card with you! Our hostess for the Divas this month was Laura Jean and she and Terry (hostess for the Dazzlers) chose a book theme for us since January is Book Blitz month.
LJ put together and AWESOME kit for us and I tried to use as many elements as I could. The stamp is Graphic 45, ABC primer collection, the paper is Echo Park Paper, This & That, the ribbon is American Crafts, buttons are PTI and Amuse and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.
In addition to our card, we have also been asked to share our favorite book and/or author and why. My favorite author has always been John Steinbeck. I was really taken by his short story, Chrysanthemums, when I was in college and I've enjoyed his work ever since. But my favorite book is the Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. My Aunt gave me this book when I was young and it just sat on my shelf for the longest time. I suppose it wasn't the right time for me to read it, but when I finally did, it captured my heart. An amazing story of Faith and Strength and true Godly character. Corrie Ten Boom is such an inspiration to me and I wish I had even an ounce of the faith that she had.
Thank you LJ and Terry for another fun month!
Be sure and stop by and see what the Divas and Dazzlers have created today.
