Read, Eat, Sleep

Hello.
This month I am guest designing for Clearly Besotted again. Lucky me, right?? :)
Today I am sharing the first of my sneaks at the new stamp and die sets, and it's all about the cute Bookworm Additions mini set with coordinating die.
Ok, I confess, I google imaged bookworms. Yes, I know they are fictional creations, but I wanted to see what colour they were supposed to be. (I like to get things right - ex-teacher syndrome.) And it seemed that green was the norm. So, I spent a good hour or so trying to create a green card. And I failed spectacularly.
So, I went with pink. Worms are pink, right???? Well, my bookworm is not only pink, but dotty and glittery too. Yay! The 'read, eat, sleep' message comes from the Bookworm Additions set too, then I added a birthday message from the fun Laugh Out Loud set that was released last month

But this card has a surprise. The little clothespin holds the tag in place, but once it's removed, it becomes a bookmark. I stamped the sentiment again underneath so the card still looks the same when the bookmark has been removed.

That's all for today. I'll be back tomorrow with my second sneak… see you then.

Love this immensely! What a darling little worm (how often does that get said? But it's true in the case of your little crawler) and the bookmark is a gem!
