My Happy Place

I am a lover of books!  
Since I was a little girl, my happiest memories are of visiting our public library, choosing a pile of books, then curling up to read away the afternoon.  
As a second grade teacher, my greatest pleasure comes from sharing books with my students and watching them develop a love of reading.  So I guess that is what inspired this card.

   I combined stamps from two Paper Smooches sets, Smarty Pants and Get Outta Town.  I stamped a bunch of books, colored them with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut them out so that I could stack them up.  I also used alcohol markers in shades of gray to create a shadow to ground the stacks.  

It is a simple design, but it makes me happy!!

I'm entering this in the SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge for this week.  I really enjoy seeing what others create.  Be sure to check it out!

Have a great day!
