Hannah's 9th Birthday Card

The challenge this week at Pollycraft is to use Green, Purple and 1 Other...how could I resist this lol...these are my favourite colours :)  And seeing as how my granddaughter, Hannah, has a purple theme in her bedroom, I thought I'd make her birthday card...ready for the end of next month. How organized is that for someone who seems to be always running late these days!! Wonders will never cease :)

I made her a bookmark to go with the card...here they are:


Hannah loves to read...and I've been into making bookmarks recently...so I thought she might like a special bookmark, made just for her from Nanny :)  This card was inspired by Paula's card for challenge #65 at Pollycraft.  I absolutely LOVE her card and asked if she minded me casing it. I would have liked to COPY it completely as I think it's perfect in every way...but I didn't think that was really the best thing to do when I wanted to enter this in the challenge this week :)  Maybe for another birthday somewhere along the line I'll do a copied rendition of Paula's beautiful card!

Here's a closer look at the inside and images:

I made an acetate pocket to hold the bookmark in the card:

 This brings back some lovely childhood memories for me...lying in the grass, reading. I was an avid bookworm in my younger days...sadly life is too busy these days to indulge very often :(  When I get my nose into a book, nothing else happens and I lose all sense of what's going on around me!! My hubby has been known to hide my books on occasion over the years, just so he can get a few words out of me lol...you'd think he'd like the peace and quiet :)

Thanks for looking...have a wonderful day :)
