Pretty Wednesday Bookmark

German Phrase of the Day: Tun Sie mögen lesen? = Do you like to read? I do...and Julia has been making me LOTS of bookmarks lately, so it was fun to make a bookmark myself for a change.

Charmaine challenged us all to make a Bookmark a few weeks ago, so when I went upstairs this morning before heading to my doctor's appointment (long story...but looks like I'm in for another 2 day stint at a German hospital.) I decided I could make the bookmark for my mom (yes, I'll have to make a second so one can go to mom, and the other can get mailed to Prettie Mama!

Since it's for my mom, I thought this Lexie stamp would be perfect. I used some gorgeous paper that Christie sent me a month or 2 ago. The printed paper is from Webster's Pages and the solid is some Bazzill textured cardstock. I made the photo corners with my paper trimmer since I still don't have a working photo corner punch, and Lexie was stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black ink onto watercolor paper, and then colored with an aquapainter and watercolor wonder crayons.

To make the scalloped bit on the top, I just inserted the cardstock into my Marvy Scalloped Oval punch. Worked like a charm! Then, I used my slot punch to make the hole for my ribbon. The good thing is, my mom loved it! I promise to get yours in the mail soon Christie!! :-)
