Butterfly Bookmark

Hi guys!! It's FRIDAY!! Woo hoo!! and i have a very busy weekend planned! Firstly it's my sisters birthday tomorrow, so i'm looking forward to celebrating it with her!! It is also my last weekend in the UK before i disappear off to Tanzania for a whole month!!! Now don't worry, i have been very, very busy scheduling lots of projects ( i think you will still be getting a daily post!!!) so please make sure you visit and leave me lots of comments, so it all feels worthwhile!!

All though my Tanzania trip is going to be a very busy one i'm hoping i'll get some down time and get some reading done! and so i thought i'd make myself a little bookmark to take with me. Here it is:

This bookmark started life as a strip of 'Bashful Blue' card, next layer is 'Marina Mist' and the top layer is a strip of 'DSP' from the 'Elegant Soiree' collection. The topper is a 'Bashful Blue' 'Scallop Circle', a '1-3/8" Circle' punched from 'Marina Mist' and finally a '1-1/4" Circle' of 'DSP'. I have stamped  a butterfly from the Level 1 stampset: 'Punch Potpourri', punched him out using the 'Butterfly Punch', placed some 'Basic Pearls' down the centre of the butterfly!

A very quick make and it's lovely to be able to take something a little crafty with me to Africa! I think i'm going to miss my crafting whilst i'm away. But i think i will get my crafting fix - some jewellery making with a Masai tribe and also making some elephant dung paper!!

Please keep checking back on this blog regularly to see all my crafty creations!!  and check back tomorrow especially as i have a very cute little card to share with you, i made it ages ago for my sisters birthday and have been keeping it a secret for ages!!
