Hey everyone!! Welcome back to day FOUR of our NOVEMBER Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks!  All of our brand new CLEAR stamp sets will be released on Saturday night!! 
The totally adorable stamp set that we're previewing today is from artist Cheryl Grant and it's called HAPPINESS IS READING! It features our favourite kids, Lulu and Lucas plus their furry friends, settling in for some reading time with a good book! The set also includes five coordinating sentiments!

I hope you can come hang at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY! The fun begins at 6pm EST and we'll be celebrating the new stamp sets with fun and prizes!

I think this is my favourite set from the sneak peeks this month!  I love to read and I have a seven year old grandson who reads as much as I do if not more!!  We're both sci-fi nerds!  I made this card with a removable bookmark.  I think he is going to love it!
The designer papers I used are from the Fancy Pants - Making Waves paper pad. Here again, I used the La-La-Land stitched circle die for the image.  The background is a label die by Spellbinder.  I created the tassel using embroidery floss.  The brads are by Doodlebug.
