CCEE2101 - Life Changes

 Happy New Year, everyone (just a little late)!  Lynn McAuley is the hostess for this month's CCEE Stampers' challenges.  The new year usually means New Year's Resolutions.  For today's challenge, Lynn would like for our cards to feature something that you could add to or subtract from your life to improve the quality of your physical or mental health.  This can be tongue-in-cheek or the real deal.

I love to read but don't find enough time to just sit down and do it.  My card reflects this desire.  I've used several different dies on this card.  The front has a book shelf full of books from Elizabeth Craft Designs and the sentiment die from Karen Burniston.

The inside has a little surprise pop-up (the Karen Burniston Bitty Ball Pop-Up die) as well as an old Spellbinders Label Seven die, with the alphabet letters from Honey Bee Stamps.  I don't know if you can see the book lying there or read the text on the background and on the Bitty Ball, but I am a big Lord of the Rings fan.

And this little video shows how the ball pops up upon opening the card.

Check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see how the rest of the team said they could improve their lives this year.
