*Mistery Numero Tre*

* All picture can be enlarged by clikking on each*
 ~~* Hello wonderful friends and peeps :o)
My stamping friend Gael (mamadwawa) is the hostess for the new, fun round of mistery.
She sent us all beautiful stamped images of a young girl intent in reading
a book and one of a lil kitten too {Think Big, from Artful Inkables}
I strongly suspect it is in honour of her own Princess's ( aka daughter Alafair)
passion for books and her loving furry,cuddly friends too...n'est pas Gael?? *wink*
The due date of the swap also coincides with Alafair's Birthday, so I am sending
her very *HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES* across the miles,even if I'm a bit early :o)

*For further details about this 'Mistery Swap'please check this link :

I absolutly LOVE this image and had so much fun coloring it with chalks -one of my favorite medium- For these card I wanted to somehow capture a lil scenery in a flowery meadow...
Well,the blue backround was too much ...'blue'
for my liking, so I added striped designer paper that combined with a flowery d/p bottom (although most gets hidden by the cut out images and embellishments)...
Nonetheless, I  still like the obtained results Cards turned out bright and cheerful, and I hope that YOU,my friendly followers ,like it as well....
Unfortunatly my camera has been acting out quite funny lately...It seems that sometimes it works still fine but other time it PMesses too!! LOL

Card Stock: SU- Rich Razzleberry;Marina Mist;Certainly Celery
Designer Paper: by Ink Boutique 'Always In Bloom' -Mini Papers

Accessories: fancy scissors by Provo Crafts,Corner punch, sm. Butterfly punch, stickles, dimentionals, fabric flowers,  metal flower brads, Brocade Blue grosgrain ribbon by SU.

Lastly...I used the last image  to make  a card for my oldest granddaughter imminent Birthday.
She too ADORES reading...such a smart little girl she is!! Last October her school wanted her tested - she's in kindergarten- resulting that she was ,then , already reading at grade FIVE level,with word conprehension vocabulary at beginning of grade SIX!! Am I boasting?? OF COURSE!! ...And gladly too! Miss Mari (short for Mariangela) will turn six soon....she's a sweet,cute,bubbly brunette that loves the color purple ,going barefoot ,and has a black cat name Xena. Besides her love of reading (especially chapters books) , she also loves to write stories and to craft too...Mari also reads in italian and is presently taking italian lessons weekly as well as her tap lessons....

I better stop here!! and Yes...she also tends to be quite the diva, and is such a social butterfly too!
We'll be in trouble for sure!! LOL~~~
