Book Love

It’s time for a new cue word challenge over at CASology!  School is back in session here in this area and the kids are already bringing home plenty of homework and school papers!

This week’s cue word is rather fitting for this time of year…

Rather than thinking about anything school related, I found myself thinking about favorite stories that DH and I have read to our children the last few years.  I remembered a set by Taylored Expressions that contains a few phrases from storybooks and this one grabbed my attention:

Stamps:  Taylored Expressions, Paper Trey (heart)
Paper:  Paper Trey cardstock (white), SU cardstock (Basic Black)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Accessories:  red gemstones

After I glued things to the card base, I realized I would’ve done things a little differently and removed the black edge on the left side, but I’ll just have to remember that next time I make a card using this very simple design!

Be sure and visit the rest of the design team members’ blogs as well as this week’s guest designer blog for more inspiration!

(you’re here!)

Then, don’t forget to link up your own BOOK creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CDT)!

We’re having a heat wave this week and today and yesterday the boys have been on two-hour early dismissals.  The days feel a little like summer vacation again!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    A heat wave for real? We've had unseasonably cool weather here…makes me long for fall!

    I really like the simplicity of your card too. Although it would never have crossed my mind to remove that one line on the left I can see in my head how it change the look a bit since you mentioned it. Still pretty sweet though 🙂

    Can't even think about reading that book without crying! It's a classic! Love your clean layout!

    Such a sweet message! My mother always says “love you more” and now my boy says that to me…
    Tugs at my heartstrings!

    Love that book and that phrase! Perfect take on this week's cue card!

    Ah, yes, a classic children's book…what absolutely beautiful words to say to your child, right? Your beautiful card matches the words perfectly…classic! Stay cool in the heat wave…I know that's going to happen to us, too! (We've had a very cool summer, but when we go back to school it gets hot again!)

    What a beautiful card Melissa and a gorgeous sentiment

  • Lisa Posted Tuesday, 08/27/2013 4:29 pm

    VERY pretty Melissa! My goodness these words are beautiful, just the way I feel about my sweet boy (MAN~ shhh don't tell him!!!)

  • Barb Ghig Posted Tuesday, 08/27/2013 11:08 pm

    Love your card, Melissa! Perfect for the challenge, and for your life right now!

    Melissa, this is one of my favorite books and I would LOVE to get the stamp set – can you specify the name, as I went on Taylored Expressions and can't find it.

  • Sandy Posted Wednesday, 08/28/2013 2:43 pm

    Wonderful Melissa! I tell my daughter, who is in her 40's that she will always be my baby girl!

  • Melissa Posted Wednesday, 08/28/2013 6:24 pm

    Kathy, it is a set called The Places You'll Go:

    There are quite a few great childhood memories in the set! I LOVE it! 🙂

    How very sweet and touching are those words. Love the pretty heart, too.
