It is my turn for another Inspiration Post for Ching-Chou Kuik. I have wanted to create a book shaped card for years; as I am a book lover. CTMH has a new Cricut You Are Here Cartridge that just came out August 1st; which has all of these die cuts; including the book die cut. The only thing on this card that isn't from that cartridge; of course, is the sweet Ching-Chou Kuik "Lil Bookworm Fairy".
This is the smallest image I have ever colored. I had to make the card 8 inches long; so that I could add this sweet image. I had to reduce the image to 2.25 inches, so that it would fit on the book page of the card. In case you can't read it: it says Travel The World (inside the globe) and This Way To Fun below that. I love that books can take you anywhere you want to go and they are so much fun! The book die is a bright pink; in case you can't tell. LOL!
I created this card for my granddaughter, Abigail; who will be 18 yrs old in August, a junior in high school. She is a writer and has written 3 books so far. She has started her 3rd book of one trilogy and writing a 2nd book for the other trilogy. She is a fabulous writer and we are hoping to get her published. I love all 3 of her books and can't wait to read the new ones. I am so very proud of her. She is an amazing young lady. I hope this will encourage her to continue her love of writing; which I never did.
