Tune in Tuesday (TNT)

Every Tuesday The Angel Company will we be featuring a designer with a specific theme, project or idea.  This Tues it is my good friend Holly Mays featuring flowers!  She has a lot of beautiful cards designed with all different kinds of flower types .... punched, stamped, 3D etc.  Go take a look HERE.

I do not know why but I am really into bookmark cards.  OK .... maybe I know why .... if I do a lot of detail coloring on an image I would like to know it can be used for a while and not just tossed after the greeting is read.  So with bookmark cards ... it is like giving a gift with the greeting that the recipient can keep.  OK ... there I said it.  So I made quite a few different bookmark cards to sell at my craft show this weekend at St Pasquals. 



This one uses the set 'Sunshine' and I colored with Copic markers.  I been stamping a message on the back of the bookmarks also but I guess I forgot to take a picture of this one. Here you can see the bookmark off the center belly band.  The bookmark was made to slide over the pages of a book. The background is a Sizzix Texture Embossing folder and the printed paper is Emma from TAC.


Here is a close up of the flower.  I used G0000 around the sunflower to help it pop and you can see it a little in this image.

I am working hard this week getting ready for my show.  Maybe I will show you a few more items I will have for sale this week.  Working on some cute notebooks right now.  Stop in and see me on Saturday if you can.
