Good luck to all and Happy Hopping!

Thanks SO much for joining us!

I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday:


I was inspired by the pop of orange in this inspiration photo from Papercraft Star:

For my card I was given Bookworm Ruby to play with.  I decided to make a card for a friend of mine who is a big time reader and in it will be a Chapter's Gift Card.  I have paper pieced her clothing, don't you love the denim skirt (I cut up some of hubby's old jeans).  The paper, flowers and button are Fancy Pants "It's the Little Things"
Now be sure to see what everyone has done, begin at the SCRS blog!

Oh and before I forget SCRS is having a sale so be sure to check out the store!
