Something I have never done...

until today is rip a page out of a book!!! I know, such a goody, goody!! But since today's ways to use it challenge was to use text on our projects...I just HAD too! The things we do for our hobbies!!!

So here is my card with "text"...images by DRS Designs...




My first thought when I saw this challenge was to use this sentiment (G032) by DRS...but...I didn't have it with me today. So, my next thought was to check some of my old paperbacks and sure enough, the first one I picked up had a chapter excerpt from an upcoming book...Yea! Rip, stick, trim and it was on the front of my card!!!

I chose to use of the mugs from the newly released coffee trio (K747) stamp by DRS. I love the stamp image itself, but I also like to use each mug separately depending on the type of card I am making. I made a card last week with just the latte mug. Sooo, rather than ink up the mug I want with markers (and chance making a mess!) I purchase two pieces of unmounted rubber, keep one in tact and cut each mug out of the other one! since the unmounted rubber is much cheaper, it's much more cost effective!

Here is a shot of the inside using one of the newly released retirement sentiments (G910)...



I added some jewels to match the color of the mug on the card front and added a paper ribbon tag from a pack I found on clearance at Walmart last week!

Thanks for checking in...tomorrow ArtfulINKables is having a blog hop to celebrate a new release. Hope you can join us!

See you soon...

OMGosh, that's cool! Love what you did with your "text" even if you did have to rip it out of a book!

Great card, Cathy!! I love the way you did the text! I think ripping out the coming attraction was OK :)
