The Wonder of Books

I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday.

My card today is for my sister, Tina, who is the Manager of a library in Hampshire. It has just finished a re-furb and will be re-opening on Thursday. This card is to let her know that we are thinking about her and hoping it all goes well.

I didn't just want to put 'good luck' on the card. I thought about what her job was and how important libraries and books are and I came up with the sentiments on the card because books........not only help us to improve our memory, they inspire us and allow us to dream!

I am entering this into the challenge this week at Cas-ual Fridays which is based on 'opposites attract'-using opposite colours on the colour wheel:

My cousin Lynn has just been chosen to be one of their DT from May, so this post is a congrats for her too!

The bright, spring colours I have used also make my card suitable for the challenge this week at Rogue Redhead designs (spring fashion colours) and the 'brights' challenge at One Stitch in Time

Well I am off for a relaxing evening as this week we are continuing with our community allotment project and tomorrow sees me filling boxes with compost and then Tuesday we have a gardening training session. I need this as I have never planted seeds before and have no idea what I am doing. Although I now have bright green gardening gloves........well I don't want to ruin my nails!!

Hope you have a good week x
