World Literacy Month

One of my favorite challenge groups is the Challenge Your Stash group on SCS, under the capable and organized leadership of my friend Barb. The idea is we can't shop for anything when making our monthly challenge card (which we post on the 28th of each month). 

We take turns choosing the theme. This month it was Kelly's turn... and today is her birthday, too, so let's all wish her a Happy Birthday...

Happy HAPPY Birthday, Kelly!

In honor of World Literacy Month, Kelly asked us to make a card based on any book or book character. After much consideration (and a perusal of my stamps - since we can't buy anything), I finally decided to go with one of the books that Brock loved as a child. In fact, he still sometimes pulls it off the shelf and reads it - If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Stamp: High Hopes Mouse Tales stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers

Papers: Cougar 110# White and SU Real Red CS and DP from my scrap file

Dies: MFT Stitched Mod Rectangle and MFT Stitched Rectangle

Embellishments: Paper Studio Mini Brads

Oh, shoot! It is the 28th! I'm glad I stopped by! I've gotta make my CYS card! My favorite thing about "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" is the illustrations. My boys and I just love to gaze at the pictures--especially the page where he is coloring with his crayons! You really rocked this challenge, Jeanette

Aw, what a fun stamp to match the book - my kids have that on the shelf, still - passed on to Alice! Lovely coloring of your very studious mouse!

How fun and sweet- and a perfect image for the challenge. I was so busy finishing VSN that I did not get to CYS!

I always used that fun book for one of my writing assignments each year in fourth grade!! Such a cute card!!

This stamp is perfect for your challenge. Great matching of book to stamp. My son has fond memories of books that I used to read to him.
