Book Friends

Hello.  Welcome.  Well, it seems the sun I ordered has been seriously misplaced so maybe a little craft is the order of the day.  Oh goody :-)  There was a little sun early this morning and I checked around the veg patches and found these

A very nice selection of summer squash.  OK, so that one at the back is a little bit big!!  LOL  What to do, what to do

Chocolate and courgette muffin with cream cheese butter cream.  Yummy. 

Whilst waiting to sample the results I thought I'd make an ATC for the Wicked Wednesday challenge.  This week it's back to school.  That always makes me think books so........

I cut my ATC using Sizzix ATC and Corners die, coloured with DI Scattered Straw, Chipped Sapphire and Broken China and spritzed.  I stamped the book stamp from PaperArtsy, masked and stamped the pile of books from Katzelkraft.  It did have ex libris at the top but I masked that out.  Edged with black archival.  The pile of books look clearer in the real but for some reason the camera wanted to make that darker splodge really dark so I have had to play a bit with it.  The colours are a bit more intense on the ATC
