You can always read me...

Hello, hello!

I'm playing with another new Dreamerland cutie from the summer release today. This one is called Good Reading Companion and it features this darling girl in her summer dress reading away the afternoon with her four legged friend. I really love the unique perspective on this image, like you the viewer are standing behind them looking down, you just don't see that a lot. Rather than coloring in a full scene and trying to transition from the grass up into other elements I decided to grab some pretty papers from October Afternoon that tied into the whole reading theme of the card instead. I like how the book print paper looks like it could be the page she is currently reading and of course I pulled my inspiration for her dress from the little bit of pretty floral paper that I used as well. I can't tell you how much I wish I could trade places with her and just while away the hours with a good historical romance novel right about now, LOL! Alas, the busy days keeping rolling on... oh well at least I can still make time for my coloring. ;)
