Newton's Nook Designs May Release - Newton's Book Club

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Hi there! 
Welcome to day three of the Newton's Nook Designs May Release!
I need to warn you, this new stamp set Newton's Book Club is so cute, you might pass out!

If you love cats and books, you must get this set!
I used to read a lot when I was growing up, but since I came to the US, I've only read a few books because I read English SO SLOW! It's sad, but what can I do, language is not my strength! 
Anyway, here is my card...;-)

Grab a good book and a good cup of coffee, and just relax and enjoy yourself!

This cutie with glasses is my favorite!
This particular image reminds of the movie Never Ending Story for some reason... That movie was my absolute favorite when I was a kid, I don't know how many times I watched it! 
I water colored the kitty with Smoky Slate very lightly, then added some stripes. His glasses were colored with Bermuda Bay very very lightly.

"Our story is my favorite"
How sweet is that!?
I heat embossed the sentiment with Smoky Slate, water colored with Crisp Cantaloupe then die cut it with the biggest heart from the Darling Hearts Die Set. 

I thought it was kind of predictable to use this book page paper, but I couldn't help myself! *hee hee* 
My kitty's so cute with his cup of coffee and a big heart, this card really didn't need any embellishments! I think this one is going to my husband at work, it's been awhile since the last time I sent him a card ;-)
