World Cardmaking Day!

Happy WCD to all crafty cardmakers! Just want to give you a heads up that Ellen Hutson is having a sale, which ends today, and hosting challenges in the CLASSroom throughout the day which you can enter to win great prizes. Be sure to check out what is going on over at Ellen Hutson LLC for more info.

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!
