Love Reading

My nephew showed a picture on facebook of his son reading on the way to school in the car, and mentioned how much he loves to read, so I decided to go with that theme for my great nephews  birthday card.


Isn't this little bear too cute, he fell asleep reading :)  That is me when I go to read anymore, maybe that is why I don't read books so much anymore, they can even be real exciting books it doesn't matter it just puts me to sleep.

Stampablities -- Bedtime story stamp, colored w/markers
Carta bella -- Alphabet Junction paper
Memory Box -- Stitched circle layers die
Spellbinders -- Lg. classic inverted scalloped circles die
Martha Stewart -- zig zag punch
sentiment sticker

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie

Yes, your bear is too, too cute, Connie, as is your sweet card. Reading in bed late at night does tend to send one to Noddy Land rather quickly. =)

This is just too cute ...

I know what you mean about reading, it can be too relaxing and you fall asleep, which sometimes is good!

Sending my good wishes for the coming new week - don't they go quickly!

All the best Jan

Awwww, exceptionally adorable and sounds perfect for your great-nephew! Once I sit down in the evening I have a hard time staying awake, whether it's reading or watching TV. The day just wears me out! Love to read, though.

Super cute card Connie. Love the sweet image and the inverted scallop circle. I have that set, but haven't used it for ages.
