Hello everyone. An early posting as I am excited to be the visiting librarian for the new Library Challenge beginning today.
Marina asked for some book suggestions from people who played in this challenge previously, and this was one of my suggestions. I was supremely excited when she asked if I wanted to be the ‘visiting librarian’ and create a card for this challenge, and I very gladly accepted – then spent the next couple of weeks grappling with it! You’d think it would be easy, wouldn’t you?
Here is the book cover:
I toyed with a door in the middle of tress, but then found my Heffy Doodle ‘Ad-roar-able lions‘ stamp set and used one of those lions:
The base is glimmer card, with an extra piece I used to colour blue using Distress Oxides – who knew that would work!! – and die cut the middle with an MFT tag die to represent the doorway.
The lion is welcoming you through the doorway into the winter wonderland, where I placed a Christmas tree. Again, my thoughts turned to more trees, a variety of trees, but – you know – I kinda like the simplicity of this card. It looks like fun to me. It was certainly fun creating it. 🙂
I hope you join Marina and I for the challenge, and I look forward to seeing what you create with this marvelous theme.
Best wishes to you all. 🙂
