Hello crafty peeps. I hope all who were effected by Blizzard Jonas have survived and are, at least, partially dug out. As I type this, it's 3:15 pm on January 25th, and our street has yet to be plowed. UGH. So, that means hubby will be working from home again. I don't mind. He's been a great help to us and our neighbors as a shoveling machine! LOL! Me, not so much. I'm out there, but not nearly as much as he was. Carpel tunnel in both wrists + shoveling = short sessions outside.
Ok, enough with the griping, and on with the show. This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we challenge you to create a card or project that is inspired by a book. A challenge like this leaves it wide open for interpretation. I was inspired by the book "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen. Here's the card I made:
Here's the inside:
Here's a close up of the quote:
I searched for a silhouette on the Google and found this, which I adore. (I followed it to the original site, but I couldn't find it anywhere there, sorry, but thank you!) Then I Googled quotes from the movie and printed it out with the silhouette onto a die cut oval. I framed it with a scalloped oval and added pearls and some flowers.
I hope that you find some time to play along at Shopping Our Stash in our "Inspired by a Book" challenge. We'd love to see what you came up with! Just remember to let us know what book you were inspired by. Before I sign off, let me leave you with a few pictures of our weekend:
Did I mention that I live in the Baltimore, MD area? Yeah, it really sucked living here this past weekend. LOL! Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!
