The Tale of Peter Rabbit








Hello everyone !! I would like to play with Joan's Gardens Tag Challenge. She always has some great creations to show and I really like to buy from her store, because I order, and it is here in no time. I bought this Crafting CD-Rom and rubber stamps from Crafter's Companion quite a while ago. The Peter Rabbit rubber stamp came unmountable and so I fixed that. I stamped the image twice for each tag/bookmark and colored him with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I then cut him out three times and using dimensionals put him on top of the other one. I used Papertrey Ink's bookmark die. The cardstock came from Crafter's Companion. I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the top of the bookmark and a flower for the bottom. The silver tassel came from Hobby Lobby. This was just a fun little project to work on.




I hope you have all been enjoying your weekend. I know I have! Yesterday my sister and I did our usual grocery shopping. I came home and when I came home I went blog browsing. My very favorite paper crafting artist is Jerri Kay Jimenez at A Touch of Grace. She is probably everyone's favorite artist. Anyhoo, she made some beautiful flowers using Spellbinder's Dies and I decided that I would try to make them myself. I had fun playing until one of my dearest friends and I went to see the movie "Water for Elephants." (Great movie and book by the way).




These photos are just hopeless. Again because I took the pics at night...but, you get the drift. Somehow I lost my siggy...Here's hoping I can post my "Jerri Card" next time. Have a great week all and thank you for the visit and for your sweet comments!!!

Velta, your bookmarks are gorgeous!

When I take pictures, I always take them in daylight in front of a window. I never use flash and try to take pictures of the project standing upright, with a few products that I used standing next to it.

Big cyber hugs!

Sorry I've been absent in the blog world. I have been crazy busy with end-of-the-year school stuff. Every time I attempt to create or do my blog hopping, something comes up.
