A Gift for you

Hi Peeps,
We've had no more snow as yet but gosh it's freezing, I've got my heating on and it's still cold lol,

Made this bookmark as a little extra for my mum for Christmas, she loves to read and so I thought she will like this, well hopefully anyway!

As you can see I've made it that it sits on the front of the book, so I could add layers and embellies and the ribbon with a heart charm is used for the marker,

This is another gorgeous Tilda from the new collection, I'm loving these, coloured with Distress inks, the edge has a Adirondack pearl dabber used on it, and I've added some to the butterflies too,
the flowers are Prima, butterflies Martha Stewart, buttons, pearls and twine stash, I've used three sizes of labels Nesties,
The background is painted with DI's too but I've gone for a subtle look,
As you can see the third nestie has been used for the sentiment, this I've kept fairly plain so it would rest  flat against the book,

Magnolia Down Under: A Gift For You,

Were supposed to be going food shopping this afternoon, as it gives more snow maybe for tomorrow and the village hadn't had a food delivery since Saturday, so we struggled to find just the basics, oh the Joys!
I will be back later in the week with my Christmas wishes, so bye for now,

LOVE THIS lIZ! I am nuts about book marks, I bet I have at least a dozen of them! And this Tilda is sooo sweet, I', sure your Mum loved it too! Funny, just yesterday I bought some beads and ribbons, etc. and am going to try a new craft with them - making book marks! We must have ESP! Hope you had a wonderful holiday and I send lots of good wishes for a very Happy New Year! Luv n' hugs, J:)

Hi Liz,

I love this idea for a bookmark - it doesn't have to be flat and you can really embellish it to your hearts content!!

Beautiful :)

Fran said...

Oh, this is very cute and what a great idea making the Tilda part sit outside so you can embellish (cutting back on embellishment is always the hardest part of bookmarks) :) Thankyou for playing along with us this week at MDUC!!
