Paper Pretties Monday

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a fun and relaxing weekend.  Mine was a good one, just over way too quickly.  But aren't they all like that?

My usual Sunday day of stamping was pretty limited, too.  I think I did more work on my computer to get things organized for the DT responsibilities then I normally do.  So, now I get to work under pressure.  Oh well, not new to me.

So the challenge over Paper Pretties Monday is....

Lazy Days of Summer

Now, many of you may remember that a challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches recently was to make a detachable bookmark card.  It wasn't a very popular challenge, I am sad to say, but it was one of my favorites.  And with this new release at Paper Pretties, it was a perfect match!  What do you think?

This is, of course, the newest release this week.  It's called A Beary Good Read and as I said, it fit perfectly with this type of card.  I love how it turned out.  He does come with some sweet sentiments, even and outside/inside one - but I left him sentiment free.

Here's the inside where I used the same image for the bookmark, just a bit smaller and added my own computer generated "sentiment."

Image: A Beary Good Book
Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel
Paper: Springtime (Echo Park)
Copics: B02, C8, E37, R02, R11, R27, Y15, YG17
Tools: ScorPal, Perforating Tool (Recollections)
Embellishments: Honeydew Baker's Twine (SNSS), buttons (SNSS & my stash)

Here's a picture of the other digital set that is releasing today, too.

This is zzZZZ - ahhh, to be so relaxed.  I wouldn't be snoozing so happily in a hammock, I'd be on the ground.  LOL

Enjoy your Monday!

What do I think? I think it is adorable. I love putting the extra little bookmarks in my cards attached. Just like an extra little gift. Super card and I love the paper and embellishments. You and I both colored the book green...haha
