Finally finished my bookmark for the swap (my first)!!

Over on the Crafts Beautiful forum there is a bookmark swap going on and the deadline is the 18th March for them to be in. I know I have made mine early but with the other card order to start on and my daughters birthday card to finish I thought I better pull my finger out and get it done.

So here is a little sneaky peek at what I have made!

Now I must have done something right as even hubby likes it - if he doesnt like something I have made, he lets me know.

So I am pleased with the way it came out and I hope whoever gets it is also happy with it. So hopefully this will be in the post tomorrow and be on its way to Jules.

If you are wondering whats has happened to the photos, well I had a little play with the contrast and colour on them and I really like the way they have turned out.


Well I hope I have finished with the 1st order.

I got up this morning thinking - I will not let this 'MALE' card thing beat me - so I thought - straight forward design using my computer - no fuss - no scratching head trying to think up anything and here it is ta da!!!!

I used Laines Day and Garamond fonts and then I cut out the exclamation mark and added a brad for the spot.

Have to say in truth I was probably being lazy and just wanted to get this first order done and out of the way. And this was the quickest design to do! Sorry the pics are a bit rubbish - and I have just taken them in daylight!!! - think i will stick to taking photos of them at night.

The card I used came from my LCS and it was my last bit - so me thinks some 'crafty' shopping will be called for on Saturday - you know, just to stock up on a few things. LOL!
