Good friends, good books.


Today's card is for Tuesday Throwdown. The challenge is distressing (yay)!

You can see I didn't do a lot of it here, but I did use my Tim Holtz distressor tool and tons of PTI tea-dye duo ink. Cute digital image and sentiment from DeeDees Digis from the set Teacher's Pet, which I love because the sentiment's aren't just "school" related!

 And as a bonus all our cards this week are going to Operation Write Home for the troops. I thought a friendship themed card might be needed, and this sentiment is perfect IMHO.




I also decided to participate in my first Curtain Call challenge! Aren't these colors fab? I don't have that dark artichoke green, so I subbed in with Ripe Avocado.

Thanks for stopping by today friends! If you are feeling the "stress", why not join our
" dis-stressing" challenge for this week's Tuesday Throwdown! *snort*

This card is a HOOT :) So cute and I love the vintage feel like an old book that you adore. The book that sits so nice on your shelf and you see it out of the corner of your eye when you walk by and you know that no matter how many times you give away books that you have read this one will never leave your house!!! Great colors too .......
