For the Girl who just Loves to Read

My DD just loves to read, in fact I thought I'd never have to say this as a parent but I actually have to tell her off for reading too much! i.e. when she should be eating at the dinner table!  We never thought we'd give in and buy her a kindle but we caved this Christmas!  Especially after a I found an app to borrow eBooks from the library and some free from Amazon!

But I wanted to remind her to read actual books as well so I appliquéd this deign onto the cover!  The little girl reading image is a digital stamp designed by KennyK and is available here.  For those of you who don't know, digital stamps are used by card makers.  If you want to use them for another purpose (i.e. appliqué) you will need to request permission from the designer as their terms normally specify what they can be used for and appliqué wasn't listed.  They were happy for me to make it though!  Thanks Elena!

I used all her favourite colours when choosing fabrics.  And wanted to create the picture of a girl reading in the garden / park etc as she also loves being outside (when it's warm!). Safe to say the kindle was a hit!
