Some Boomarks to Share~

 Hello dear friends. I thought I would share three bookmarks that I made up the other day. The first one I made with a pretty "aubergine" (egg plant) colored ribbon and a couple of vintage earrings.
 This one is made with a Paper Whimsy image. I think this little girl is so cute and I liked this quote-"a book is a garden carried in the pocket".
 This bookmark I made for my hubby. He said I always make my bookmarks too feminine and asked me if I could make him one that wasn't so foo-foo. Well, I tried. He will use this one for his bible-so what better quote than this?
 I used vintage buttons and a rusty heart. Don't you love this ribbon netting? It's from Flights of Fancy. I tried to capture the coppery shimmer to it in the photo.
This is also from Flights of Fancy-I love the beading in the center of the flowers.

What have you been up to? I've been working in my craft room where it's warm and toasty, since it's been snowing outside! Not that much though. More rain than snow. I hope you are all doing well and are getting to do something fun. I would love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Warm hugs,

Hello Sonya
I hope you are feeling nice and settled into your studio by now! It looks like you have been quite busy creating already now that you are set up and those book marks look so sweet. I hope hubby doesn't think his is too "foo foo" - love the expression.
I can see him and my DH both watching that weather channel together. It must be a man thing.
Have a lovely weekend dear friend,
Warm hugs,

Gorgeous bookmarks, all three of them. I like the idea of the ribbon one, so simple, yet so elegant and beautiful with those sparklies.
Isn't it lovely to be tucked up inside, all warm and cosy, when the weather is horrid?
