Spot the Difference ~ My Favorites!

Hello friends and Happy Sunday!

The weather here is absolutely GORGEOUS! 
 Sunny, breezy, tropical, salt in the air ....  just perfect!  
Although I'm not one to enjoy the heat, the breezy temps are quite lovely!
I wish I could send you all some of my sunshine ♥

 This is my second installment of my new blog series:
Spot the Difference!
The premise is simple:
Take all the leftover crafty scraps or 'didn't-use-it-changed-my-mind'
pieces and create something with it!
These pieces were left from the holidays ~
intended originally to be Christmas cards :)

Two of my favorite things, 
aside from family and friends, of course .......
And books!
 If I had to chose between one of the two?
Well, I'd still be standing in front of both! 

 I wouldn't do anything for a Klondike bar ...
but I'd do some pretty sketchy stuff for a Starbucks!
Just sayin' !


 I used Stamp Anniething for this round ~
these cute little stamps remind me of dolls.
And I love that they are right here in Florida - with me!
 I've used Kelly book (of COURSE!!)
and Felicity hello.
The sentiments are from different stamp sets of mine ~
Technique Tuesday (coffee) and My Favorite Things (reading).

 Felicity was also colored yesterday
 for the 9th day of coloring for The Daily Marker!
(Kelly was previously colored -

 I added her to this card I just made for the series)

 Can you SPOT the DIFFERENCE? :)

This was another fun installment of this series
and I'm having a fun time!
Now, it's time to snuggle with a 'Bux and a stack of borrowed library books!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
