January 2013: First Duel of the New Year!




Hello Everyone....
it's been SOOOO long since I was able to post!!!
(and, even as I write this. I am not that sure that I'll be succesful ...my fingers are double crossed!...)
**Note: this post sat as a 'draft' until today...**

I am starting off the year with a duel...yup...the DARLINGS monthly duel :o)
This month, our DAZZLER's darling hostess is Terry aka my sweet WPS.
She sent us a wonderful kit accompanied by a great ,fun, reading theme that
she and LJ (the DIVA's hostess) came up with!! Love, love, love it!!♥
Both hostesses asked both teams who our favorite author is,
or what our favorite book is and why...

The kit from Terry included the following items:
Image: MFT Who's That Girl - "Well Read"
Paper - Basic Grey DP "Study Hall" - I only had one sheet, I never buy just one sheet of any paper, but I only had one sheet to split for everyone, DCWV brown solid, Fancy Pants DP "Frigid"
Accessories: CTMH Baker's Twine - Neutral Assortment brown, Buttons - Dress It Up - Lone Stars, Nailheads Metal stickers - Mark Richards from Hobby Lobby, Ribbon - brown from my stash

*** All I added was Old Olive c/s for my base card and some vanilla c/s.
Tecnique: sponging and fussy cutting. ***

 
      
My favorite books
are the ones that keep you turning page after page like a frenzy...lol...
I love reading about good murder investigation to mysteries//mafia to lawyers// medical examiner to romance...etc... I like pretty much everything that can keep me totally absorbed . Currently, I am reading Patricia Cornwell (Dr/Scarpetta's series) and John Sandford (Eyes of Prey)...A third book is kept in my DH truck (reading time for me for when we go places) titled  'Persuaders' by Lee Child

I loveeeee readinggggg, anytime, anyplace at any hour...just like the girl in the image above, I can bury my head in a book and surface only if necessary!...lol!♥

   ♥   Thanks for stopping by....

Wonderful coloring on the couch, Sweet P! I like how it looks like a wall of books behind her too. The inside is fun with the cutout books - love the book titles, that is a great detail!
