I love Reading


Well the post title is true, I have loved reading ever since I could read and whilst I love my iPad I don't want to read books on it. There is no substitute for a real book and there is something about turning the pages that you lose on a tablet. So I have used several of the goodies I bought at Ally Pally on this card.
Image - Gorjuss New Hieghts
Medium - Copics
Papers - Dovecraft Serendipity
Sentiment - LOTV
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Die - Joanna Sheen star border
Other - wooden stars painted with a Zig pen and clear Wink of Stella

I love reading too, you posted on FB to someone about Elly Griffiths and it came up on my timeline had to check her out and now just started her 6th book but I do have to read it on a kindle, holding books I find painful.
Love you card, perfect colours and love stars.

Your card is really sweet. I feel exactly the same about books versus Kindle. You can't beat the feel, the smell of a book etc. Christine x

Fab card Marianne. Love the image, and yes, I'm a reader too. Never set foot outside the house without a book and my Kindle just won't do. It's not reading unless I have actual paper pages, lol. x

Hi Marianne, I love the gorgeous image and your selection of papers, beautifully coloured and the stars are brilliant as embellishments.
I love reading, and agree about real books, however I've had to use a kindle as I find it difficult to hold even a paperback through painful hands. I never thought I would take to a kindle, but I wouldn't be without it now. Not so hubby, he would never dream of using one he is like you, Kate x

Erika said...

Your mini gorjuss girl is very cute and I love this colour combo, one of my favourites.

Happy crafting, hugs Erika. x

Fantastic selection of papers and a beautifully coloured image a great card for a book lover. Agree that nothing beats a real book but I also enjoy my kindle, it's so handy if you are away a few days

Wow so gorgeous Marianne.Really love the bold papers and colours and your gorjuss girl is so sweet :D
I am with you on reading, I love nothing better than losing myself in a good book and I like you love the feeling of holding an actual book and turning the pages, kindles and such like are not for me.
