The card by Kasia looks so lovely..My favorite all time book has to be "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini! :)

Diana Fernandez said...

Such cute inspiration today! My favorite book of all time is gone with the wind! I love the romance of it!

Samantha Mann said...

What amazing cards, of course! Love both featured sets!! It's so hard to pick a fav book of all time!!! Harry potter, hunger games, the wheel of time! But if you're looking for a quick, easy read that's just plain fun, I suggest such a pretty fat. hilarious!!

Really like the new sets.
Fav all time book - tough one. But just got back from a short trip where I read all the Hunger Games - it had me reverted to the spot! Thanks for the chance

Mary Pat Siehl said...

oh i am so loving all this inspiration and this stamp set is awesome -

Pam said...

This spotted kitty is the cutest!! Fav book of all time? I'm not much of a book reader. If the story doesn't interest me in the first few pages, I quit reading. But, I very much enjoyed reading Dances with Wolves. Read the book first, then watched the movie!

Kris B said...

My favorite book of all time is the Bible. I always find help when I read it! Right now I am reading the Hunger Game books.

snappy scrappy said...

Super cute!! My fav book would have to be "Here and Now" by Alice Hoffman. Lee-Ann :)

Chris D. said...

Super cute card! My favorite book? That would have to be The Eight by Katherine Neville. Love how it spans centuries but everyone is linked! Thanks for the chance to win!

Jamie said...

I love this set! I also love reading and have hundreds of favorite books!! So instead of a favorite book I will give you a couple favorite authors:). Nicholas Sparks and Nora Roberts are a few of my favorite, I have never been disappointed with one of their books.

kim.scrapper said...

Very sweet set and card. Hmmmm, favorite book of all time, now that is difficult. I wouln't say it was my favorite but it was certainly a good one and very insightful, "The Shack". Thanks for the chance to win, hugz

The paper pieced cat looks unique!

Kaylee Snyder said...

Love that kitty card. My cat is a calico and so the spots on the kitty in the card seems extra adorable. (Plus, I love the blue.) My fav book? So hard to pick just one, but I am addicted to Harry Potter.

Jennifer Scull said...

what a cute set of stamps!

my fave book is easy - it's the book set "Piercing the Darkness" and "This Present Darkness" by Frank Peretti. absolutely wonderful and I never tire of reading them over & over again. great question! :)

cm said...

Kasia's card is adorable - love the 'patterned' kitty - sort of a 'quirky calico.' As for books, I'm all about mysteries. Two authors are on my radar. First is the Inspector Gamache series (8 so far, the 9th coming in August) by Louise Penny. She creates such an intriguing 'sense of place' that I find myself immersed in Three Pines, the fictional village that houses most of her 'crimes,' by the end of the first page! Second on my list is the new series by C.C. Benison, featuring Father Tom Christmas, a recently widowed pastor, dealing with crimes in his village. Twelve Drummers Drumming and Eleven Pipers Piping are delightful (you can see where he's heading with titles like these!). If you're seeking some escape from 'reality' these authors have the goods! Thank you for asking such a neat question; the comments from others helps me to create a reading list, too!

Diana said...

What a cute card by Kasia!
As for favorite book, I'd have to say it's "The Art of Exceptional Living" by Jim Rohn. It's an audio book which I like a lot because I can always listen to it when doing chores at home :P

Esther said...

What an adorable spotted cat :)

There are so many books I love, I guess Gone With The Wind would be tops but I really enjoyed The Davinci Code, Jurrasic Park, The Hunger Games to name a few.

Geri said...

You ABSOLUTELY have to read the Outlander series (Diana Gabaldon)!!! You will fall in love with Mr. Jamie Fraser and will not want to stop reading until you get to Book 8, which has just been released in the UK and scheduled for release in US & Canada in a few months.

Tracy said...

Adorable card! I love all of the Nicholas Sparks books!

Kailash said...

My favorite book is "A fine balance" by Rohinton Mistry, about how our daily lives can intersect!!! It was amazing to read and so well written!!

Rebecca Wagner said...

My favorite book is the Bible, although I read anything and everything on my Kindle. I just love books.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

This one is easy..... The Stand by Stephen King.

Barb said...

I could read "To Kill A Mockingbird" everyday and never tire of it. I've read it 23 times so far since turning 15!

Mary-Anne V said...

Very cute card. Love the kiddie stamps in the prize set.

Indy said...

Adorable card! Love this new kitty set! As for my favorite book of all time, it would have to be "Jane Eyre" or any book by Jane Austen. Hope you find a good book to read soon!

Meghan said...

You are the master of the square card Arielle! The Kid and Caboodle set is my all-time favourite set from the Alley Way Stamps! My favourite book is always the one I'm reading which is currently the Black Box by Michael Connelly.

Kim Heggins said...

Adorable card...I love to read so it is really hard to have just one favorite. I am a preschool teacher and my favorite book to read to them is "If you give a mouse a cookie" by Laura Numeroff.

Shannon J said...

I am having so much fun with your giveaway questions! My favourite book I would say is Eat, Pray, Love. It just resonated with me at the right time in my life. But if you're looking to take your mind off of life, I would recommend a Sophie Kinsella or Emily Giffin book - very easy, light reads, and entertaining!

FrancineB said...

If you haven't read them yet, the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich are awesome and funny!! I read the first 10 in a week.

Another favorite is Julia Garwood's Knight in Shining Armour. Fabulous!

Sandy said...

Love that cute kitty. Asking me which book I love best is like asking me which family member I love best! But the two I loved most of the books that I read in 2012 were "The Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet" and "The Fault in Our Stars." Both are wonderfully written stories of young love with characters you would actually like to meet.

Edwina said...

I love the cute cards. My favorite is the one using lighter than air.
My favorite book is The Lonesome Gods. It is by Louis L'Amour. It is a western. Someone who likes mystery and fantasy would like it too. It reads easy and keeps your attention. Edwina Brown

osirisandloki said...

Heidi Brawley said...

AWE love the DT creations!!! My fave book series is the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. Booke 1 is called One for the Money. They are just hilarious and fun to read. Stephanie's Grandma is a hoot!!! I highly recommend them if you haven't read any of them yet.
hugs,Heidi

I shared to my facebook wall!!!

Sharla said...

Darling cards! Love that hot air balloon!!

My favorite book? I have way too many to pick one. I love Harry Potter and Hunger Games, and anything Lord of the Rings style.

Amy Kolling said...

My favorite book has to be The Notebook. Just the perfect love story!

Amy Kolling said...

I tweeted about today's giveaway! I'd love to win this super cute set!

Karenladd said...

Love these adorable cards...that kitty makes me laugh! My favorite book of all time is The Kite Runner. My daughter had to read it for a college class and she loaned it to me. Had no idea what it was about and it as amazing and so touching.

Suze said...

My eyesight doesn't enable me to read as I used to but I do enjoy a mystery. My favourite author would have to be John Creasey - not sure you can still get his books. Now, though all I manage is a craft magazine!

Moosisk said...

I can't say if I have one favorite but I have favorite authors. I love Beverly Lewis and Nicholas Sparks. I do remember reading "Gone With the Wind" in high school and it was definite long but memorable. Thanks for another chance to win. :D

Kimberly Clark said...

ohhh favorite book... oh that is hard I read everything. I flip flop between genre sometimes it is an easy read smut book, or a science fiction... or murder mystery... ohhhh all depends - but the first author that came to mind was JRR toilkien and then the Stehanie Plume mystery series by Janet Evaanovich

oh love the cards

jengd said...

Favorite book? No idea. Favorite author... probably Guy Gavriel Kay. I can read and reread his stuff over and over.

Cheryl Bux said...

Another cute stamp set! I LOVE to read! My taste is very eclectic and it would be hard to pick an "all time" favourite. My current fav book is Defiance by C.J. Redwine - strong lead female character and it's a series - the next book comes out in a few months; anything by Stephen King is a good read; loved the entire Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling; Historical romance novels by Dorothy Garlock are good and I loved the SciFi novel "Rissa Kerguelen" by F.M. Busby.

{Chrissie} said...

I can't pick a favorite book, but my favorite series is Harry Potter (and the Sookie Stackhouse novels)!

Thanks for the chance to win!!!

I shared this on my Facebook page!

Leeann said...

I hope I'm not too late.

My favorite book is the Princess Bride. Yes, I've seen the movie so many times I can recite it but there's something about the book that adds more to the imagination. I'm so glad I was able to share it with my daughter who enjoyed it as well.

Leeann said...

Your blinkie is still on my blog.

My Favorite book off all time is Alice in wonderland i know its an oldie but such a goodie the main reason I love it so much is when I was you my great Auntie used too watch/look after me a fair bit and she would read it to me at night. Somthing that I will do for my daughter the book is so old she got it given to her in 1927 by her teach for Dux of the school. Its so old but such a great book :)
