A Birthday Book Wish

Hmm...does this title even make sense? Well, maybe it will in a moment. You see, I have a very dear step-mom who is celebrating her birthday tomorrow. She LOVES to read...and I mean, she is curled up in a book every chance that she gets. So when Papertrey came out with a set for the booklover in your life, I just HAD to have it. :) They also released a bookmark die...and the wheels began a-turnin'!

Wanna see??

Oh my goodness, I just love it! All things shabby and pretty and feminine. Just like her! And the sentiment...absolute perfection, LOL! You see why I just couldn't pass it up?
And the matching card...oh yes...


I would LOVE to make more of these! I'm thinking about making some replicas and putting them in my Etsy shop...I haven't had anything in there for a while! Oh! And I was very mindful when creating the bookmarks, that they would be in a book...that's why the lack of heavy embellishments. :)


All the stamps are from Papertrey, except the Happy Birthday sentiment...from my favorite TE set, CreativiTEA.

Thanks so much for looking...and liking?? :)

Hey Melissa, thanks for your note! I went there on Friday, I did visit the TE booth and saw Taylor, but everyone seem to be very busy so I did not interupt. I should have at least say 'Hi' to you if I gotta this note earlier, sorry about that!
I love the bookmark you made for your step-mom, it is a pretty set, also the pretty gift pack, I am sure the girls would be so happy when they received a pretty gift like these. Thanks for sharing, I always admired your beautiful creations!

This is perfect Melissa! I am sure she will love it. My mo has a Nook so no bookmark needed. LOL :)

Thanks for the inspiration! I'm going to try a masculine version of this for my father-in-law. He loves to read, too.

You make such lovely cards!
