A gift for Hannah


Here's a little something I made for Zoe's friend Hannah. I'm ok to show this now as she received it this morning. Hope you like it sweetie! I know i've used this stamp quite recently but she is one of my favourite Tilda's from the Summer club kit. The book mark is made from Tim Holtz Grungeboard and is great for these types of projects. It's tough but flexible and really easy to stain. I stained mine using VersaMagic in Purple Hydrangea. Image coloured with Primacolor pencils with Sansodor and paper stumps to blend. To finish off - lots of ribbons and fibres. They didn't photo too well on the white and the pale pink spotty ribbon has blended into the background!

Hope you all have a great weekend. We are off to my Mum's on Sunday to Cornwall for a little break. Pop back and visit on Tuesday as my challenge card is on Auto post.

Keep your fingers crossed also that the weather is nice as we are hoping to take the kids to the beach.

Hugs,

Hi Nikki,

were back, and I finally can use my computer. The lap-top had a very slow connection and it took ages to download a page.

Great bookmarker. Love the the colors you've used for this one. And that little Tilda is so very cute.

I'm sure Hannah will like it.

Have a great weekend
xoxo Karin

What a great idea, Nikki, and a beautiful bookmark! I can see that Hannah was pleased, and I'm not surprised, the colours are just perfect for her (or other girls) I think.

Hope you're having a great weekend, my friend!
Hugs, Hanne:)

Hey Nikki....this is very cute. I love the fibers on the top. I'm going to have to take a look at your "new SU catalogue" and see how it's different from ours. I thought of you this past week at convention when they mentioned the UK as part of our huge family. Hope you're having fun with all your stuff!!!
Hugs, Joan
