My project this month for the Bugaboo Crafty Challenge is a Bookmark. Here in the U.S.A., we will be celebrating our Independence on the 4th of July next month and this image hits the spot.  She’s called, “Stella Calendar Month July USA.” I also really liked the sentiment that went with it. LOL.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used a Gold Prisma Pencil. I’m not sure who makes the pattern paper that I used, as I have had it for ages and didn’t find a name on the back. It’s from a 12×12 single sheet of paper so maybe it’s from Joanns or Michaels.

I also used small magnets so the Bookmark will hold securely to the page.  I’ve had several fall out of my book lately and it’s very frustrating to try and find my place again. I think this will solve that problem.

I hope you’ll come and join us and good luck with winning something. Also – don’t forget to check out the Bugaboo Store for their weekly sales and Friday Freebie.


Merry Christmas…2016

Merry Christmas everyone.  The year has gone by in a flash and I’m way behind in making my cards.  It seems funny to be out shopping and hear Christmas Music and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet!  Things sure are different from when I was a child.

This card was made using the #4 Sketch on the Crafting Circle Monthly, “Just For Fun,” Challenge Blog run by our own MsWipz. Come and join us, you’ll enjoy it.

The beautiful pattern paper came with a British Magazine, but I can’t remember which one.  It really is lovely.  The green and red are scraps and the Gold Paper is from My Favorite Things.

The sentiment is a Stampabilities Stamp from Hobby Lobby and the small Poinsettia is a die-cut from Simon Says.  It’s the perfect size for cards.

That’s it…thanks for stopping by and having a look-see.
