Addison and I have started reading Charlotte's Web each night before bed. We're only reading one chapter a night, so we need something to mark our place. I made this bookmark for her tonight using the Twinkle Toes stamp set and paper from the Uptown Girl collection. I "colored" in the ballerina with Pink, Black Diamond and StarDust stickles. The fiber is Basic Grey and the bling is from Heidi Swapp. I think she'll just love it!

It's been over a month since I've found time to play with one of Beate's weekend sketches. I've been waiting anxiously to use my new Sweet Skunks stamps and I love the colors in A Little Whimsy paper collection. The sentiment is from the Ordinary Greetings set. The picture is a little dark, but I'm so happy with how this turned out. I've already cut the cardstock and paper to make three more of these! (The fact that I'm already late on sending a few birthday cards might have been a small factor in that decision too). Now I'm just waiting for naptime to stamp off a few more of these adorable skunks and pull out my Prismacolor pencils and OMS. :)
A Wittle Bug was the perfect stamp set to use for my dd's 6th birthday Thank You cards. I used to computer to print the thank you note inside the card with blanks for her to fill in the person's name, gift and her signature. Once she had done her part, I used these adorable stamps and some of my favorite old paper scraps from Gin-X, KI Memories, and Doodlebug to decorate the card fronts. Simple, but perfect for her friends!
