The Library Challenge #49 Anthology

The Note: The book everyone's talking about by [Folbigg, Zoë]




I may have mentioned I had one more card for The Library Challenge's Anthology - why not get those Valentine's started?  Here was my inspiration... 





I used a very old, much loved set from MFT, called London Mouse, to help me pull my card together.  I've added this book to my reading list - I'm totally intrigued to know what those 'three life-changing sentences' are!


My 'love note' is a tiny little thing which made hand-drawing those little figures into the vehicles even more challenging - but oh so fun!  The word note is stamped with a very old set called Sketchy Letters, from Mama Elephant - I still love them!
 Thanks for stopping by today... hope your Christmas was everything you hoped for!

I had never heard of this challenge and I saw your post on IG and LOVED your snowman inspired card...so I too started one with a red vehicle! You'll have to wait and see...and now I have a book cover AND your card to be inspired by! :) This is so adorable!

You have a stamp for everything, Michele. But knowing you have them and how to use them is the key to your genius.

This is fantastic, Michele! I'm amazed by the fact that you find the perfect stamps from your stash for the challenge and by how you arrange the design of the book cover for your card. Great job of hand-drawing the little cute figures!

How wonderful! This was one of my favourite book covers and you've done an amazing job, right down to the little figures in the vehicle. I must admit though, that I didn't love the book when I read it...but lots of people do, so maybe you'll be one of them!Thanks for joining The Library.
