Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Christi challenged the Prettie Girls to create a bookmark. My favorite type of bookmark has always been the kind with the magnets on the inside so that it "hugs" the page you where you left off. I used the Simply Special set from Paper Pretties for my bookmark. I cut the bookmark using my Scallop Circle Nestabilities. I colored the image using an ink pad and blender pen. I though the ribbon gave it a soft, feminine touch.


Make sure you stop to see the bookmarks the rest of the Prettie Girls have created:


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Simply Special (Paper Pretties); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Certainly Celery (SU); Paper- Certainly Celery (SU), white (Georgia-Pacific); Accessories- blender pen, Scallop Circle and Plain Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), ribbon (Darice), magnets

Sometimes I think I live under a rock...I've never heard of or seen the magnet-type bookmarks...but I'm LOVIN' the idea. This is SOOOOO cute. The colors are SOOO fresh and springy.
