Bugging you...

Olo!

I finished A Storm of Swords last night and I have to say that it was my favorite book of the series so far. They have all been amazing but whoa, there was just so much to take in with this one. I've had comments asking about the Songs of Ice and Fire series and they are adult fantasy novels that I promise will transport you to another time and place. If you love the Lord of the Rings trilogy then these books will be right up your alley.
I'm already a couple of chapters into A Feast for Crows and it should be interesting. It looks like there are quite a few new characters being introduced as we are taken into new parts of the Seven Kingdoms that so far have only been mentioned in the previous novels but not really explored. Yep, I'm being sucked right back in again! LOL

Now onto my card... I found this little Pure Innocence Ladybug already colored up and cut out while straightening my desk, and since I was in a time crunch again she made this one super quick. The little ladybug rub-ons where also on my desk and since they are part of the October Afternoon Cherry Hill line that got me to pulling out the matching papers from my scrap bags and just going to town with it all. I know that they are older and I can't really think of an October Afternoon line that I haven't been crazy about but I gotta say that Cherry Hill still remains in my top 3 lines that they have ever made. Love.

Ok, I'm hoping that today is just as sunny and beautiful as yesterday was so that I can get out there and soak it all in... with plenty of sunscreen I assure you! ;)

Later gators!

wonderful card Amy. Love all the colours and that's one sweet bug :).

Love fantasy books myself and will have to give your recommendation a try but would like to trow the name David Eddings to you. Brillant fantasy writer and you'd love them.

Have a wonderful day and send some sun my way. It's raining here A LOT lol.

Hugs, Mette
