Books and Bedhead

Hi Everyone!  I just returned from a trip with my wonderful husband to the beautiful city of Chicago, Illinois.  We did lots of sightseeing, ate great food and both gained a few pounds...LOL.  We also went to two Giants vs Cubs baseball games...our team lost 1 and won 1!  Go Giants!!!!  We only used Chicago's public transportation which I was a little afraid of to begin with.  We usually always rent a car when we travel but my husband decided we didn't need one this time and he was right!  Their subway train system, they call the L, the buses and the taxi's were super easy to use.  The hotel was fabulous...we stayed in a beautiful suite at the Water Tower which is the same place that Oprah Winfrey owns the top two floors and there is a huge shopping mall under it!!!  We had such a wonderful time there!!!  We will definitely visit that great city again!

Anyway... today I have a new card to show you.  I finished it before we left so I would have something to post when I returned.  I bought a new digital from Saturated Canary (see sidebar favorites).  She is so cute...I do a lot of reading in bed before going to sleep at night.  I'm always leaning back on my favorite pillow so I really could relate to the photo (I'm not that cute though...LOL).  I made this card using the Sweet Threads paper pad from Basic Grey.  I really love all the beautiful colors!

Here it is...I sure hope you like it!
