Not a Card

The challenge over on All Things Sugar Nellie this week is anything but a card.  In the past I have made these magnetic bookmarks and my daughter keeps asking me to make one for her friend Sam who is even more of a bookaholic than she is and that is hard to believe as my daughter is on first name terms with all the Manchester and Tameside librarians and has permanently got something either on order or waiting to be collected lol.  We can't go shopping without being dragged into bookshops and whenever we are on holiday she somehow manages to find all the little old fashioned shops.




I have used this cute 'Cheddar' image coloured with Promarkers and the papers are a free download from Zoe Pearn 'My Little Sunshine'.  The flowers are punched and gems added to the centres.  I have also punched the magnet flowers out of the little magnetic picture frames you can buy in Poundworld.  These are great for stopping the bookmark from falling out of the book like most bookmarks do.
