A Wizard Bookmark

Hi everyone, Cathie here with another masculine make. 
My son is very fond of a certain wizard child that a lot of the kids are into, and after finding a book that he was really interested in reading he promptly asked for a book mark. After finding the perfect image that seemed to inspired by a certain wizard, I got to work and this is what I created.

Thinking of you.


Hi there.... well the month is almost over.   Just a couple more days to enter our "Anything Goes for August" challenge.

Today I have a Thinking of You card using the lovely Flower Power stamp and Die from Elizabeth Crafts


I stamped my flower and the centre onto some Canson XL Watercolour paper and used my Zig Clear Clean markers and a blender pen to colour.   Once it dried, I cut it out with the matching dies.  The background was made by masking off  the edges of another piece of watercolour paper.  I then sponged on some Oxide inks (Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Worn Lipstick), flicked on some water and some gold CTMH sparkle pen dots.   My sentiment is from Hero Arts and has been clear embossed over black ink.

You can join our challenge HERE..

A Sled for You

I know it's only September and too soon for sledding, but I thought this would make some boy happy, maybe some older boy whose birthday was near winter and he received the key to the car.  Maybe?   Whichever, I thought a blue and yellow card was the combo for me.



I die-cut the sled parts and used floss for the reins for the sled.  I've pulled apart twine so it would fit in the holes too.  Whatever you decide to use, use something, because there is a greater impact and enjoyment of the finished sled with some kind of reins.

Supplies:
Elizabeth Craft Designs Sled at Dies R Us
Elizabeth Craft Designs Steampunk Charms at Dies R Us
Little B Handwritten (for you dies)
Paper for Key from backing in package
Vagabond die cut machine

Tea and Macaroons Thank You




I thought this set was so cute.  I love the macaroons all stacked up and tied with a ribbon.  I had a lot of fun playing with this set.  I just drew lines across the bottom third of the card and used the lines as if it were a table, sitting with two cups of tea with a snack.  I hope you enjoy this unique set.




A close-up of the macaroons shows some creamy white filling for the macaroon.  I wouldn't eat this creamy filling though.  It's Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss - Simply White. But it's wonderful to see and looks like it is real filling.
