Books are the best !!

Good Morning, friends!

Growing up in a military family,
and moving around so much,
books, and my year-older-than-me brother, 
quickly became my best friends :)
As soon as we'd move to a new military base,
I would hop on my little bike and find my way to the library!

Flash forward 40 years, and I still love books!
I love to rummage through bookstores, old bookseller shops
and visit the library at least 2 times in the week ♥

I found a new stamp company recently called Stamp Anniething
and love, love, LOVE their stamps ♥
I literally squealed when my envelope arrived!

For this round of the 3 Musketeers stamping group,
I chose to work with this cutie because ......
wait for it ......

Her name is Kelly - book!
How. perfect. is. that!!!

I colored her with my prismacolor markers,
and found a book related sentiment that I had in my stamp drawer ..
I thought it went together nicely!
A few enamel dots and bright papers and 
this card came together effortlessly thanks to cutie Kelly :)

This is also my 9th card in The 30 Day Coloring Challenge.
And what does a friend do when she finds a stamp company she loves?
She stamps with friends, of course!
Both Barb and Jeanette have created equally adorable cards - 
and even bought some stamps, too!
And the best part is they are right here in South Florida with me!

And here we are ...#3Mstrong 

 I hope today you find a chance to do whatever makes you happy,
be it reading, coloring, sharing happiness!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
