Reading Mae

I can't turn down a good reading image and this one is no exception - this is the new Reading Mae from Some Odd Girl and you have to check out everyone's projects at the SOG Blog!!  She's a cutie and fun to color and I can never have too many bookworm cards for teachers. I think this one is by far the most favorite of the release - but check out all the images and decided for yourself.  :D

In addition to using Reading Mae, I was able to sneak in another ticket sentiment from Whimsy Stamps - I have a whole bunch punched out from the coordinating diecut and so it's easy to grab one and add to a project.  Lately I've been stocking up on diecut shapes in craft paper and they've been great embellishments.  Plus it saves from getting out the diecutter and putting it away on projects that I need to finish quickly.

Growing up, there was a saying on the wall of my home which said "Use it up, wear it out,  make it do or do without."  Come to find out my Mom loathed the saying but it still sticks with me today... so when I reached for my orange flowers that I've been "saving for that right project" I decided it was time to use them up.  LOL  I guess I can apply that to all my stashes.  He he he

Thanks for coming by and I hope you've enjoyed my project for today - I hope it has inspired you to make something, color something or even read something!  :D
