Once Upon a Time...

...there was a nine year old girl who loved to read so much that she seemed to have been able to actually "jump" into it as if she were in a movie.

This card is for you, Madelynn. Keep reading. It broadens your horizons, brightens your outlook, and brings you great joy and I hope that never changes. I love you!

Love,
Mom :)P.S. Be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm's blog today for another Farm Fresh Friday challenge where you just might find this card, too! Have a great weekend, everyone!

O.K.

So I won't even tell you how much I hate all the Brown!!!! Even though you know I want too!!! The reason I will not tell you that is because this card is a wonderful card and for a perfect reason!!! Love this and it makes me crave for Twinkling Tuesdays so we can interact with sweet Madelynn again!!!! I love the Castle because it makes you think she is jumping into that image she is reading about and love the brackets that look like book typeing!!!

Wonderful job on this girl!!!

What a great blog post to your daughter!!! Mine is also a lover of reading. I just love to watch her wrap herself up in a good book. Has your daughter read the Ally Finkle Books yet? Mine is waiting for the fourth one to come out in September!! She loved all of them. Oh and great card by the way!!! HUGS!!
