Every moment has its pleasures and its hope (Mansfield Park)

Hello bloggers! Adina here with ANOTHER Sassy creation (I know, these images, ROCK, right?)... 

WELL, if you landed here at my blog, you may have noticed the title of my blog is "According to Jane Austen." That would be because she is my #1 favorite author to teach, read, and study. And it's ironic because I'm SOOO not into sappy love stories in real life. But when I escape into a book, I just love the sarcasm, wit, and eventual happy ending afforded by a good Austen title...

I haven't read them all though, which makes me sad. :) But I'm getting there! And I read Pride and Prejudice EVERY year since I teach it to my British Literature class in the Spring. So that does help me get my fix... :)

And thus, my Elizabeth Laura Bennett tribute below... :) Lindsay over at Sassy Studios created this BEAUTIFUL rendition of our Pride and Prejudice heroine, and as soon as I saw her my heart kinda got happy. :) 
Here she is colored very much like Kiera Knightly, hair wise at least, but I'm thinking of inking her up again sometime soon with lighter browns to her hair... But I digress... :)

This card was created for the Anything Goes challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty being sponsored by Sassy Studios this week. I am also submitting Ms. Bennett to:
