Tuesday Taggers bookmark week

The brief this week was to make a bookmark and the option of a matching card. Meghan's Friend Lucy is 14 today and is a huge lover of books so this seemed perfect. She is also a lover of Chocolate in a huge way so the Yummy parcel contains a cadburys caramel bar.
the Yummy stamp is from stampin up card and ribbon from stash and the cutsie quirky little girl a stamp I bought from the Craft Emporium coloured with promarkers. The scalloped edges are done with the scalloped edge border punch from stampin up and the letters are a papermania alphabet stamp set. the flower on the bookmark was a freebie stamp last year from The craft stamper magazine of which I am a huge fan!

Well Im out all day today invigilating the 11+ exams at the local Grammer school with a huge team of other invigilaters. Its an interesting process although not what I wanted for my own children but there will be more than 200 boys and 200 girls at another venue sitting the practice test tomorrow all from out of the catchment area so its a popular choice for many in this area.

From my point of view its an extra bonus which helps pay for the craft retreat In November at Malham - That way i never feel guilty for spending the money as Iwork extra for it!

hope its not too blustery where ever you are today :0)


  1. Lovely colour combo. How much fun is this, I am sure your Daughters friend will not want to open this loved wrap bar ( then again :))

  2. Great work Janet - really "yummy".
    Enjoy your invigilating - I used to find it sooo boring - but the thought of extra stash will keep you going I'm sure!
