IO Hobby Challenge

Impression Obsession has a Hobby Challenge this week. Ofcourse, it would be so obvious to do papercrafts or stamping. But, I decided to do a reading hobby as I am an avid reader. I enjoy non fiction the most, but I also love fiction too. I just love a good book. I had foot surgery last fall and read twenty plus books. I'll list some of my favorites below. With all of the e-readers available you do not have to go to the library anymore. You can order books online. I can go to our library's website and read a little bit about the book I want to order. You can pull up all the best sellers and see what everyone else is reading. It's amazing.  My two sisters are also avid readers  and we let each other know when we come across a good book. Our library and several organizations around our small community have book fairs where you can purchase books very reasonably.  So, heres my card in honor of books and those who love to read:

These stamps and products from IO were used:  Cover-A-Card Book Shelves #CC152, Cover-A-Card Script #CC050, Outside of a Dog #E3594 and Floral Trio #B8929. For more challenge cards go to:


Good books I've read lately:
1. Killing Kennedy
2. No Easy Day
3. American Sniper
4. A Lucky Child
5. The Secrets of Mary Bowser

Hi Paula,

What a great card ! I always like to look closely at your card, then go to the enlarged image, and see what else I find :-) I'm never disappointed, I found a leaf, this time :-) The fibers are great, too ! An entertaining quote :-)

I enjoy reading, as well :-)

Great card, although it did remind me that more than a few of my books did end up inside of a dog! LOL!

Love how you made the little book and the use of the CAC on it, it's a great card. And I am so jealous you've got the Book Shelves CAC...
