Bookmark Friday!

Hi y'all!
I live in VA, what do you expect ;)

So happy you are here today on this lovely Friday!

I made a card for Friends With Flair
Friday Fun!
Today's Friday Fun challenge is once again from Christi.
She challenged us to make a bookmark.

So I made a card and a matching bookmark for you today.

The stamp I used is one of my favorite Itty Bitty's called:
A Thing of Beauty
The paper I used is Cosmo Cricket Upcycle,
and so is that chipboard sentiment.

I made my paper clip bookmark using the SCS tutorial HERE
and the ruffled ribbon tutorial is HERE.

PLEASE check out what the fab Friday girls made today!

Hope you like my card and bookmark!

Please check out my blog candy, it's a GOOD one!

Have a GREAT day!

Be Still Hip Hop

 {check out my new blog celebration blog candy}

Hello my lovely friends!
How happy are you that it's Thursday???
One, because tomorrow is Friday and then it's Saturday, woot, woot!
and Two because it's Hip Hop!
and Three because I have a new home, what do ya think???
I hope you like it :)

I made 2 super simple cards for you today.
They both use my favorite technique, paper piecing.
I tried to color them...oh my...what a disaster, LOL!

Maybe I should show you....

Yeah, that's for real, HA!
I tried with colored pencils (I didn't even know I had!)
Copics, SU! inks and my blender pen
SU! ink and an aquapainter...
I used a paintbrush...
and went straight back to PAPER PIECING!
Nope, coloring is so not me!
still love me?

I did make 2 cards using my simple technique,

both of them using BE STILL

The paper I used is:
My Minds Eye - Hattie

Make sure to head yourself on over to Shemaine's blog next!
