Today my DD Allison picked up her Bible (the purple one) and said “ Mom I LOVE this Bible.” I looked at the cover and thought hmmmmmm I could SO make her a bookmark to match her Bible. Then my Youngest DD Amy said, “what about mine?” And I thought …..Why not? Here is what I came up with! I don’t have a supply list for you. The CS is all CTMH except that bright neon pink color which was from a DCWV stack. The ribbon is all CTMH, as are the brads. The flowers I picked up at Hobby Lobby as well as the Crucifix stamp. The little Dew Drop in the center is part of a surprise RAK I received from Kari…THANKS!!!
I thought I would also post a few pics on how I do my faux stitching as quite a few people have asked about it.
I am not one of those people with elegant long pretty nails :0(
and that’s ink on my finger :0)
Make sure you have your paper on the reverse side of the versa mat or on some of that foam ‘stuff’ which I have used here. Use a fair bit of pressure. Any holes that don’t go all the way through you can use a paper piercer on. I find that the holes these little bug thingies make look more like a sewing machine.
That’s a Sakura White Gelly Roll pen
OK you try holding a camera in your right hand and a pen in your left when you are right handed ha ha.
OK that’s all there is . OHHH and if you have stayed with me thus far…Here is Amy’s card for her challenge.
She even second generationed the little heart by the ‘missing you’ on purpose (“I want it lighter Mom!”) The owl is colored like her LPS owl . This is for her Dad as he is gone so much lately. So far we have 5 cards entered in her challenge and she is SO thrilled! Don’t forget we are extended to Sat midday….if anyone wants to take part and needs more time please let me know!
Well if you have stuck with me until the end of this post THANKS!
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
