I am away on holiday on Sunday for 3 weeks so have not had much time for crafting this week. My bookmark had become a bit cloth eared, so thought I had better make another one & by sheer fluke, found A Spoonful Of Sugar had a challenge to make a bookmark, so heres my very quick effort as time is short. The image is from Digital Ink Co which has now closed, coloured with Prisma pencils & Sansador. Mounted onto card from stash & a flower, also from stash. Sentiment made on Word. Very quick & easy & I now have a new bookmark to take away with me.
