Hitting the Books with CCB!

Hola Chicas! It's Sunday! It was beautiful out today in Southern California. Yesterday was a different story. It was so gloomy and humid. It rained a little on Friday too. It reminded me so much of October I broke out my Halloween stamps. The current Amuse Challenge #5 is called "Hitting the Books". You are to create a card based on a book and since I wanted to make 2 cards I went with 3x3 ones. The first one is based on The Devil Wears Prada. Meryl Streep had white hair in the movie, so I decided not to color in her hair. The second card is based on the book Wicked. I loved the play too! Ok, honestly I only saw the movie and the play but hey they were originally books. LOL! The Wicked card is also for the Creatively Cute Bloggers Challenge #7. The challenge required you to basically stamp direct to paper with no more than 2 embellishments. This card was so easy to make. Well chicas I hope you had a wonderful weekend and I will see you soon with a little pic of my Saturday adventure. Gotta finish my card before I post it. Thanks for visiting!
