March is Women’s History Month, and to commemorate women’s achievements Raise the Bar Challenge #8 is to use an image that includes a book. I thought I was out on this one until I remembered a stamp I have had since back in the day when I thought rubber stamps were decorative and looked cute in a shadow box hanging on one of my dining room walls. From Uptown Rubber Stamps, “Wilson … Love Sonnets” is/was part of The Boyd’s Collection. While most of my stamps from 15-plus years ago are long gone, I haven’t had the heart to part with Wilson and one other stamp from the Boyd’s Collection.
Speaking of old, I didn’t realize the ribbon I was using was from the retired Twilight Ribbon Rounds collection until after the fact. Thankfully, it coordinates with the Indian Corn Blue paper I used on my card. The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and mounted to the card with foam tape.

All things considered, today was a fine day. I was just a little tired. It seems, once again, I didn’t want the weekend to end with sleep eluding me until somewhere between 3 and 4 am. Do I need therapy or what? LOL. Anyway, I’ll be attempting to make up/catch up tonight.
I hope your day was awesome. With that, I’m off to clean up my corner and maybe get a little jumpstart on tomorrow’s card. Take care, friends. Later…
