Jellypark new releases and latest challenge - About a book

Hello, hello, hello and a huge Happy Friday one and all.
It's challenge time again over at the jellypark friends challenge blog and the theme this time round is "about a book" so we would love to see projects with books on them, book titles in them or someone enjoying a good read.
Both new release images are very much in keeping with this wonderful theme, I love reading as does my hubby and fortunately our love of books has rubbed off on both children.
When I saw the new releases I couldn't decide which one to use so I made a card from each.
First up is this very cute little fella who looks completely engrossed in what he is reading.

I used one of my background papers that I created for another project and then coloured the little fella with promarkers, I made a library card and holder on the computer and printed them out. I loved those little brown envelopes when I was a child. I used to make them all the time when I was little so my sister and I could pretend to be librarians lol, the modern plastic cards just don't have the same impact :o)

Craft-room Challenge - in the library
Next up is this beauty.

Doesn't she look so relaxed, I wonder what she is reading?
 I created a card base from some lovely patterned linen card I had in my stash (which I found when I was doing up the craft room, bonus lol). The image has been coloured with promarkers, I went for a nice bright yellow, not just because it's my favourite colour but the sun was actually out when I sat down to colour in. I found the quote online and thought it was quite appropriate. I used some little wooden flowers to embellish.

That's it from me for now I really hope to see some of your gorgeous book related projects over on the challenge blog.

Happy Crafting.
