Skater Ian Card and Book Review: Best Friends Forever

I have owned this cute little Ian ever since he came out...it's been so long I honestly don't even remember. Guy cards aren't really my thing, so that's why my Ians don't see that much love.

Peggy made this really cute card, oh I mean "cool" card, with him and I was determined to finally ink up this cute little guy! I also used Club Anya and Friends Sketch #9.

Paper: Basic Grey Eerie
Stamps: The Greeting Farm
Nestabilities, Twine, PTI Buttons, American Crafts Brads, and Copics


I feel like I haven't read for fun in years. The other night when I desperately wanted to craft, I had a headache and just couldn't concentrate. So I decided to read this book that I received in the mail weeks ago.

It's a story about how 2 girls became best friends. One had a loving family, but was fat. And the other came from a divorced family, yet turned out pretty and popular. They stopped being friends their senior year and now it's the night of their high school reunion. The pretty girl hits a guy from their class with her car and goes to her long lost best friend for help.



This book isn't as good as Goodnight Nobody, the only other Jennifer Weiner book I have read. I think I liked that book better because it has more suspense and mystery to it than this one. But if you want an easy, quick read to lighten your day, this is a good read.

Have a great Tuesday! Can't wait to see Idol! Brent loves Ellen, but I miss Paula.

  5. Your card is super cute as well. I love the twine and the papers you used.

    The book sounds interesting and one I might enjoy. Can you believe I've only read 1 book for pleasure in the last 5 years?

    I do miss Paula as well on Idol but I really like Ellen. Her comments crack me up.

  17. great card! I'm always amazed at how talented you are, *sigh*. I am finishing up a fun read that John got me for Vday. Most of the time I like to craft and creat during "me time", but sometimes a book is just better. :)

  21. Oh I love your card. I too have a hard time making cards for men/boys! You did a great job!

    I've been wondering about Jennifer Weiner's books. So you recommend Goodnight Nobody rather than Best Friend Forever? Did I tell you I read Twenties Girl? I liked it alot! IT was close to the Shopaholic series type feel. KWIM? LOL!
