A Muse Lounge Challenge #5

First off... I LOVE THE HEAT! The temperature here has been hovering around 30 Celsius this week and it's fabulous. One small rant... I wish people here were happy with the weather. Everyone complains about the weather here and we have the best weather in Canada. I love it cause of days like today (we need more of them) and cause we don't have to shovel a lot of snow in the winter. I do understand people don't do well in the heat, so my apologies to those people. Ok... I'm done. Bring on the heat!!!!Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

On to the challenge...thanks Jennie... to be inspired by a book. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net My favourite book of late is the Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón and I was inspired by it's cover (see left). I have to thank my friend Alex (who I met on an airplane home from London last year) for sending it to me from Australia. This is a fabulous book and I highly recommend it. Here's my card - took the colours, added some distressing and the pattern on the background. I apologize for the quality of the photo. Took it in the dying light of yesterday and I sent it to someone today so can't take another!

I'm still working on my class descriptions for July and will post them soon. Hope everyone is having a great week. Take care.. Glenda
