Library Challenge #42

I'm playing along with the latest challenge over at The Library Craft Challenge blog where the current book inspiration is I'll Take Manhattan by Judith Krantz.

Google Image Result for

Would you believe that I've never read a Judith Krantz novel???  I must do something to remedy that.  If anyone has a favorite, please let me know!  (My current reads are The Huntess by Kate Quinn [audio] and The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell by Robert Dugoni [ebook] )

My card this week has a similar feel as my last Library Challenge card in that I did a Distress Inked background with a single figure.  

The focal stamp is one from Penny Black called Birthday Balloons.  I masked off several of the balloons so I would have room enough for a beautiful night sky.  The die cut congrats sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.  (I thought Congrats seemed more fitting for this card than Happy Birthday. Perhaps the night sky?)  

I'm actually a bit under the weather with a sore throat and the start of a cold but I'm doing my best to fight it off with lots of zinc and vitamin C.  If it's a bit quiet here in blogland, you know why.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Your time is much appreciated.  

Hope to see you on the crafty side.....



  1. I haven't read a Judith Krantz novel since I was 14, so I can't really help you with recommendations. :D What a perfect take on the book cover!

  2. The colours go perfectly with the book cover! Love those red balloons.Thanks for joining The Library.

  3. Jules, congrats to YOU for taking on this gorgeous book cover - you nailed it!! Congrats is a perfect way to say "hurrah, you made it through another year!"
    Now go fight the battle and feel better SOON!
