Fairy Bookmark

I needed a bookmark!  I have just started reading books for the book award we run - so much fun!  But I needed a bookmark - can't believe I have lost EVERY SINGLE ONE!  I know that I leave them in books I return to the library, so lets hope that someone else is enjoying using them!

I have to say a quick thankyou to Vicki (Scrap Junkie) who sent me over this image - saw it on her blog and just loved it so I asked her where it came from and she sent me a bunch of different fairies - all from colouring pages I think!

But isn't she beautiful?

This picture doesn't do the twinkly bits any justice at all (as ever)....there is mock stitching around the whole thing too!  Well, I guess if I tell you then you can peer closer (or not, as the fancy takes you!).  )h, and I thought the paper looked a little plain, so I got my sakura glazes out onto it!

I think that I can just about sneak this in for Sir Stampalot's Challenge which was to use a punch!  Honest....look at the bottom....yes, its tiny, but its there!!!  Ooooo - wonder if I can also claim the corner punch??????

thanks for looking

Hi Ruthie, couldn't find an email address just to let you know how I dried the lavender. I did mean to hang it upside down but in the event it dried out lying flat in the laundry. Wonderful scent when you walk in there. Took 2-3 weeks then the blossom just broke free and popped them in the little bags. Hope you are keeping well! Take CareX:)

Hi Ruthie

Your bookmark is great and I can imagine the sparke even if your picture did not show it.

Thank you for sharing with us at Stampalot Challenge this month and good luck.
