Hello friends... it's midweek...yay!!!! In just over a month, I go on leave...woohoooo! I've been doing some shop..ping and am anxiously awaiting my purchases from overseas. Nice Christmas prezzies from Me to Me... ;)
OK, so here we go with another 2 bookmarks I was asked to make and this evening before leaving the office, I was asked to make another one for a friend.... Can you please make me one, she asked, the holidays are almost here and I plan to read a lot you know !! hahaha Now how can one say No to that !
I am really not complaining as it keeps me out of mischief and I'm doing something I love to do... It's giving me the opportunity to try new styles, so I really hope the people who ordered these (and YOU my lovely bloggy friends) are happy with the new designs.
Just loved using Willow writing Recipies again. Haven't used her in while! She really is a beautiful stamp by Elisabeth Bell. You can purchase her from Whiff of Joy.
And here's another Elisabeth Bell image, called Flower Power. You can purchase her from Susanna's Custom Art and Design. Another one that hasn't seen the light of day for quite some time. These EB girlies are very popular with my small circle of bookmark addicts! (smile)
OK and now for a final pic of the back of each bookmark.
Thanks so much for popping by my blog today. As always, I'd love for you to leave a comment as it really makes this blogging all the more worthwhile. Just knowing that someone took the time to pop by is so very special.
Before I go, I must just share this cute little story... It just goes to show that if you're not a crafter, you really have no idea how much work is involved in putting these cards/bookmarks/projects, which we love to do, together. A colleague bought one of my cards for her Granny and when she returned the box of cards which she'd chosen hers from, she said "Your cards are so beautiful, do you print those pictures from the internet? " Uhhh, helloooo....that stopped me in my tracks a bit. My initial reaction was "Hell NO!", but then I realised, how the heck is she supposed to know when she's not a crafter. To her it's just a pretty card with a nicely coloured picture. Then I went on to explain that the images are stamps which you ink and stamp, then colour with VERY EXPENSIVE copic pens. Everything is imported from overseas... blah blah blah, you know the drill. Then the eyes widened as I heard the penny drop and I could see a hint of respect shine through her beautiful eyes. It must be hard work then, she said... bless her! hahaha, now isn't that a lovely story! I am sure you have plenty of your own, feel free to share.
Now I really have taken up enough of your time... I am going to bed... sleep tight. Happy crafting, hugs Sharon x
