Hello bloggers!! I hope you are having a great day - don't you just love weekends - I hope you are getting some time to 'play with paper'....there is nothing more relaxing than that for me! I have been playing around with a number of projects but unfortunately cannot show you them at this time!! But I can show you one of the bookmarks I am making. I have had some requests from neighbours to make some, so this is the first of a number.
When some of my neighbours knew I made cards they asked if they could see them, so I took them up the street last weekend and sold some, I had a great week and sold 37 cards, which makes me happy. It still amazes me that people would actually want to buy something I make!!
I used a stamp set I had been given my my dear friend and SU Demo Ann, it had not seen ink until this bookmark. I have seen a lot of creations made with it and decided to get moving - it is perfect for this bookmark.
On the back I used another SU Set, a Sale-a-bration set from last year - it is perfect for the back - I am thinking of making more of these as they would be very popular in the boutiques I sell my cards....they are also very quick and easy.
I added the Martha Stewart Picket Fence Punch along the bottom (thank you Pat!!) with a piece of gingham ribbon. Simple and sweet - these are great for that little something you want to pop in a card for someone you are thinking of, or even Mothers's Day, which is coming up here in May.
I am hoping to have more of these to show you soon and also a project I am working on for my DD1 who has a birthday coming up - it is always a challenge to make something she will like, as she is not a papercrafter and 'hand made' does not hold too much appeal for her - but I am determined to make somethng she will like - I won last time with the journal...I am hoping for another 'win!' I like her to have something from the heart!!
