Purple Tulip Bookmark

Hi all! Man, things are busy around here this week. Yikes!



I haven't had any stamping time yesterday or today, but here's a bookmark I made for my daughter a few weeks ago. After I made that New Moon-inspired corner bookmark (HERE's the post), she asked if I could make one for her. She wanted it to be similar to the one I made for myself with the Flourishes tulip but she wanted hers in shades of purple and ivory. Here's what I came up with. These things are SOOOO quick and fun to make....I'm thinking everyone in my family may be getting one for Christmas!

Beate's tutorial for making them can be found HERE.

Okay, that's it for me today. I have a bunch of work to get back to.......{sigh}. See ya!
