Bookmark Making Contest!

One of my awesome prize sponsors is Sandra Caldwell.  She and I are having a contest this month to create a Bookmark using this adorable stamp, a stamp she designed just for me!! WOO HOO. This stamp will be on sale at her store for the next three days (Feb 3, 4, 5th).  You can get it for half price!  Then, please make a bookmark and enter the contest.  After the 5th  you are still welcome to jump right in and play but you will have to get the stamp for full price to play.  This adorable image is called Bearly a Headache.  I can't wait to see everyone's cards.  There will be multiple prizes selected from the players!! (also, still comment as there will be prizes among those players too)

Here's my sample bookmark.  It was super hard for me to keep it perfectly flat so that it could be used as a bookmark.  I just love adding embellishments.  Keep in mind, it's a bookmark!

I can't wait to see what you all will make!  My image has the number 6, for 6 years seizure free. The teddy that she sells will be blank on the shirt. see it HERE.

(Also, be sure and leave a comment today as there will be blog candy drawn as well from the comments).  Did you sign up Feb 1?  Be sure and go back and leave a comment there (CLICK HERE).   Have you seen the winner list?  it's been updated!! CLICK HERE

Such a cute image! I don't usually do cutesy animals, but this one is special. My bookmark will have to have the comment "Please don't let me fall again when you open the book." LOL, I am forever picking bookmarks up off the floor. I like to laminate the bookmarks I make so they last longer, so no embellishments on mine either.

A really great character and a fab bookmark. It really is difficult to make flat bookmarks when use to doing lots of layering and embelishing, but a good exercise in crafting differently.

Lovely bookmark!

This is such a cute stamp. I also live the sentiments with it. Very cute bookmark. I know its hard to make any project flat once you start making everything 3-D with embellies. You did a great job. I commented on all your posts so far as well as the winners list. Hope I can get the chance to make a cute book mark too. Hugs...
