Here's my project following the 
5th Monday Theme...

I had fun making these for the Book Club
committee down in FL. I didn't put much
effort into coloring them with my Copic
markers so it was a simple one color per
bookmark. I used Lawn Fawn's For You, Deer
stamps and die cuts to make these fun
little gifts. I just added some matching
twines and threads to complete the 
projects. Super simple. I did make the 
bookmarks out of a cardboard scrap I had.
At least they are a bit more sturdy.

PIP Challenge 2341

 The challenge this week is sponsored 
by PIP Challenges
and they will be giving away a 
$10 Gift Certificate from Sweet n Sassy

Here's my card:
I used MFT stamps and a random window
die cut. I colored the images with my
Copics. I made the card for my grandson,
LJ, just because. He and his Momma love
critters and I thought this would make
them both smile. I raised up some of 
the images for a bit of dimension. I had
originally meant to raise up the white
framing but...forgot...so...I adjusted. lol.

PIP Challenge 2340

 The challenge this week is sponsored by
The prize will be a 
$10 Gift Certificate from 


Here is my project for the challenge...
This was made for a friend's birthday. 
Since I spend 3 months every winter in
Florida I am often drawn to the sea 
stamps etc. So, I colored the gull friends 
with Copics. The background was a digital
paper. I just cut a piece of brown cardstock
for the mound. I raise up the images with
some pop dots and stamped my sentiment.
I'm sorry to say I made this card in
the spring and can't remember everything
I used. I'm still recouping from a nasty
cold and don't have much energy as of yet.
Soooo, I used this image. Stay well and
enjoy the upcoming challenge and week!
