Today I am sharing a bookmark I made for my DD who just happens to love owls and reading. I was inspired by the Boo Tag in T!m Holtz's gallery and I distressed a large blank tag with T!m's fabulous distress inks, couldn't live without them!! Then I stamped the adorable little owl at the bottom and the cloud, moon and bats. Chipboard letters and a little ribbon add the finishing touches and it was done in no time, better yet she loved it.
While I was still in crafty mode I made this tag for my MIL who has a birthday this month. She'll be 84 years young but shhhh because I have let the cat out of the bag :-) so guess it's a good thing they do not have internet (hee hee). She enjoys reading as well so I suspect it will be put to good use as a bookmark. Fall colors are her favorite so I chose this palette and went to work distressing. I used the Playful Journey stamp set by T!m and two of his masks to create some depth. The "b" is for Bobbie, which is her name, and I especially love the sentiment. Hope she likes it :-)
That's all for today, have fun crafting wherever you are!
