Dare I say it.... another Bookmark to share

Oh WELL, alrighty then... why not share another Bookmark with you all ?  They are proving to be quite popular and they may just inspire you to make some of your own for those lovely bookworm friends and family of yours.  This time I have used the lovely Tilda with Rubber Boots, which has been collecting dust in her CD case.... I'm sure she's happy to grace the pages of my blog once more, after such a long absence... hehe

I've used Martha Stewart's Pop Up Butterflies border punch, which sadly has also not been used for a while and I quite like the effect of this little scene.

I just placed an order for 2 little Magnolia stamps from the new Christmas Collection (sadly that is all my budget allows at this time, as the shipping fees are so costly to our country), but I really wanted the new Magnolia Christmas Magazine too, so I forfeited purchasing another stamp in favour of the Mag... Can't wait for it to arrive!

It may look as if I've only been making Bookmarks, but I assure you I've also been catching up on my DT commitments, which you'll be seeing in the next few days.  Look out for my card on Saturday on the Totally Gorjuss blog.  I've used a Penny Black stamp which was so covered in dust from misuse, that I hardly recognised it (hehe... you know I'm only joking right?)  Seriously though... sometimes I think 'oh darn, wish I could get rid of these old stamps', but it was really nice using it again after such a long time.

Well enough chit-chat from me... don't want to bore you.  Hope you're having fun whatever you're doing.  Tomorrow is Friday... YAY!!!!   hugs Sharon x

I love this bookmark. I really need to learn how to make these. I could use them for my own books! That Tilda stamp is so cute. I love her in the rubber boots. :)

Hiya sweetie. My goodness, you are cooking up a storm with these gorgeous bookmarks. I just love looking at them as they are so wonderfully cute. The images are just perfect to make these classy little items. No wonder they are popular. Gorgeous colours too, and you should use that fabulous border more often, it finishes it off perfectly. Love it. Happy crafting.
Love Sandra xxx

Good Morning

Another WOW to you, this is absolutely stunning, I love the colours as well as the stamp. Thank you for sharing. Your colouring is so inspiring; I hope that one day (not too far off in the future, I hope) that I will be able to colour as well as you.

The saying does go “practice makes perfect". Be sure, I will be practicing.

Have a awesome weekend.
