Challenge Wins

My Crafty Friends

Wednesday 25 May 2011


Good Morning everyone,

I have not been posting for the last week, I was busy working on a card that I will be showing you on Friday for the new CMM Challenge, but today I can already share a little side project I made as well. It's a bookmark for my husband, we will celebrate our first anniversary next week and since this is traditionally a paper anniversary, I thought I would give him a little home made gift along that theme. I am actually pretty happy with the way it turned out, I'd never done it before but this one was SOOOOO easy! There's a little candle holder behind it to prop it up for the picture, the bookmark itself is the tag.

Materials used:
* Orange card stock from my stash to strenghten it and the greens gems, both from my stash.
* Silver peeloff letters
* Baker's twine and green ribbon from Making Memories (Trims cool)
* Green tag from K&Company Hopskotch Girl Tag Pad
* Brown tag from SEI Christmas Mint chiplets

Funny how you can use things that are meant to use for certain cards in other ways that work as well! Girly paper en Christmas Chipboard for a male project, who would have thunk it ;)

I've left the back completely plain, I didn't want to inflict any more bling on him, he has to use it in public places after all :) It's simple, but I still like it.

Well, that's it from me for today, I will be back on Friday with my card.  I will be trying a little blofsurfing later on!
