The Roses Challenge .....Connie's Bookmark

Hello,

It's very quite in blogland........I think all my American friends are relaxing after Thanksgiving festivities and Black Friday shopping!  Did you have a great time and did you bag any bargains??

We seem to have sales all year round these days I remember when it used to be January only, in the UK that is. I've stood in cues and been pushed and shoved by crazy women snatching anything in site........not anymore...... I like to think about what I'm buying these days and lets face it the Internet has changed how we shop too.


It's the last Sunday of the month so that means it's time for The Roses challenge and this month Connie asked us to make a bookmark.   I've seen these pretty corner bookmarks around the blogs and thought it was about time I tried one.  So here it is.....


I used one of the stamps from Annabelle Stamps Santa's Star along with another Annabelle Stamp for the sentiment. As these are clear stamps you can bend them slightly which is what I did for the sentiment.
I've added some sewing some white ric rac and tied a bow in seam binding.  It works too ......think I might add one of these for each of the craft girls this year.

Thanks Connie, I loved making this corner bookmark and can't wait to see what the girls came up with.  You can check them all by following the links in the side bar.  But remember here in Australia we're a day ahead!!!!



I've been busy in any spare time this week end  making my Christmas cards and I've  almost got enough but I have to admit to making batch made cards.  I'll share some with you soon.

Thanks to all those girls on Facebook I sent the 'Getting To Know You' tag too. You know chain mail letters and awards are not really me! However.......it's been great reading some of the answers given and I do feel I know you better . I've had some laughs too, so thanks girls for taking the time.

Walshie and I are off to watch the Soccer this afternoon........hope the rain holds off it's looking very cloudy out there!

See you soon......
