Gingersnap challenge - Read

Reading is one of my favourite hobbies and I have thousands of books (to go with the thousands of rubber stamps, lol) and I have been meaning to enter this Gingersnap challenge "READ"  since it was launched - nothing like leaving it to the last minute, it closes tomorrow!

Just a simple tag - inks are stormy sky and rusty hinge DI's, the alphabet script (fresh from its appearance in its drawer on WOYWW!) is also stormy sky, and the 20's style lady is by Oyster Stamps, coloured with watercolour pencils.

Got another couple of challenges I want to get done too, so I may be back sooner than you think.



Oh, and the Big Shot is in the building!  It arrived at the office yesterday afternoon, in a BIG box (as those of you with one will know) and then I had to carry it home on the bus -  by the time I dragged myself up my road (I have a 15 minute walk from the bus stop) my arms were aching big style.

Once I unpacked it of course, I realised if I'd opened the box at work, I could have used the ever so handy carry handle..............!!!!!!!!!!  'nuff said!

All I need now is some dies (tattered florals on order, yippee!) so I can use it for something other than my cuttlebug embossing folders!
