Books/Literature card

Hi friends, hope your Saturday is going well so far!
Very wet and grey here today, so I am in my craft
 room doing 'stuff' ;)


Over at 'Less is More' it's 'One layer card' week,
oh my...still worries me a tad! and with the
 theme of......
 
 
Books/Literature


I was pleased to remember I had some old book
stamps a kind friend once sent me yonks ago.
 Happy days!

I stamped and coloured very lightly so not
to take away too much from the lovely sentiment.
That also came with the stamp set and I just love
 it!


Anyhoo come and take a quick look and see what 
you think. I was tempted to add something  else,
but left it as it is....less is more after all ;)
 
Sorry I am late commenting this week,but I am
 on it now!


Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned !



ps. I have made almost all of my Xmas cards now,
just a few special ones to finish yet. All inserts done
and written in, just got to address them now.....and
relax ;)

I love this Viv, such a fab design having the sentiment over the books so they become a background leaving the focus on that awesome sentiment! (I agree with it 100%!) Lovely soft colouring too. Thanks for playing along at Less is More :)
