This week's at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog, the challenge was a sketch to follow. No problem there, but what image? I decided to use the Color Throwdown Challenge colors with the sketch from this challenge, and those colors just screamed relaxing with a good book. When I first discovered digi images, one of the few places that had them was Squigglefly. I purchased several images, not realizing that they were drawn by different artists. Much to my delight Avid Reader turned out to be a Cheryl Alger(our own dear Sassy Cheryl) design, and of course just the thing for my challenge card. Papers were from my Sam's Club purchase of many years ago, and the flowers are made using a tutorial that was in Magnolia Magazine. My little reader is colored with Copics, and the little blue embellies are Bella's Baubles. The sentiment is a paraphrase of the following quote by Charles W. Eliot, "Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors; and the most patient of teachers." As long as I've got a book, I've got a friend.
Thanks for stopping by and I love hearing from you. Who are your favorite authors? Now I'm off to read my new Nora Roberts book The Search.
