Waking your heart & shaking your walls

Woohoo, getting in early for my July post lol!  Actually hoping i'll make it more than one this month.  Why does it take me such a long time to get back to blogging after the April/May festival?  Also, since when did July get here so darn fast?

Since July is a good holiday month, we want to see creations with a Summer or Holiday Destination theme over at Sweet Stampin' this week.  Here's what I made, not based on my hols at all:

Now, I LOVE this card & especially these papers which come from our sponsor this week, Michele R Designs.  I've never really used digital papers before and now i'm wondering why?  They were such a doddle to use and I love that I can layer before printing to help keep it in the lower postage bracket. 

Joining in with a few challenge:

Crazy 4 Challenges - Lighthouse/Ocean
Just Us Girls - Summer
Simply Papercraft - Anything Goes
That's Crafty - Masculine

It was really lovely to read your comments about libraries & being a librarian, it's great to know there are plenty of other book passionistas!  I'll think of you all while I'm on duty this week.

Right now, I'm reading 'Ship of Brides' by Jojo Moyes.  I only heard of Jojo Moyes when the lovely Lisa talked about the book 'Me Before You'.  I remember her being very passionate about it & thought that I would get a hold of it.  Eventually I read it & enjoyed it, which led to me reading 'The One Plus One' (also enjoyed) & now I am working my way through the rest of her books along with a heap of others.  I currently have 16 books waiting in my 'to read' pile, I don't like to run out!

I notice there is now a sequel to Me Before You called After You.  I'm not sure I want to read it.  I can't imagine where you can go from where it finished without being terribly cliched.

Have a lovely day folks, thanks for reading my waffle!

Abi, I loved this card from the first moment I saw it on the DT blog! I LOVE what you did with these fabulous papers and your stamp is gorgeous. I didn't even notice at first that you and Cass had used the same one until I read the comments! LOL. Amazing how different they can look. This is a truly gorgeous creation and I'm so happy everyone enjoyed using the papers so much! Hugs, Wends xoxo (Sorry my make was late, but it's there now x)

I love your card, and I didn't even notice that you had layered the papers, before you printed them... So clever..
Hugs xx

It's a fabulous card Abi, these papers are gorgeous! Very clever to layer before printing, didn't know it was possible to do that! Great stamp too, making a wonderful masculine card.
