From one Jackie to another Jackie

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs.

I will be at work tonight then I have a whole week off Yayyyyyyyyyyy. I always have  my birthday week off, and I will be starting it tomorrow by joining my crafting friends for a day of crafting, chinwagging, laughing and best of all, retail therapy :o)

On to my card for today, which I made to give to my work friend Jackie. Like me, she loves her Kindle, unlike me she is a party animal, hence the inside :o)

For the front, I took a photograph of my own Kindle, then opened it in PSP7 to feather it and blur the book I was reading at the time. Don't want to get pulled up for publishing part of someone else's writing LOL. It was a paranormal romance!
I added the text using Smarty Pants font.
The bookworm is an Elizabeth O Dulemba image, coloured with Wink of Stella pens (not the brushes), then I fussy cut it out and raised it with sticky foam pads.
Computer generated sentiment also raised on foam pads.

I created the insert in my very old Greeting Card Factory, using their own images. I wish I could be a fly on the wall when she opens it :o)

She'll love it Jackie... you've personalised it perfectly! You're so clever to be able to do that.. if people ask me for a card for someone who likes mountain climbing and motorbikes or whatever, I say NO!!! LOL!

Happy Birthday, Jackie. I wish you a lovely birthday week - I'm hope you have planned a fun time for yourself :)

Love the card you've designed for your book-loving friend. The little bookworm is perfect - Elizabeth O Dulemba creates great images for readers.
