FINALLY FRIDAY CHALLENGE @ TWOPEAS

The Finally Friday challenge this week was to create a card that has a removable bookmark...what a cool idea!! Wish I would have thought of it!! I guess that's why we have galleries like at twopeasinabucket.com...for inspiration and creative sharing! I also used one of Kimber's older card sketches for inspiration:


Anyways, here is my card for the week's challenge:



For the bookmark...there are two magnets (one on either side of the bookmark) so that it folds around your book pages and "clicks" together....so cute!

UNITY STAMP FWF FRIDAY & KOM SKETCH CHALLENGE

I created this card for the March KOM Sketch Challenge at Unity Stamp Co.


I used my March KOM stamp set that just arrived!! This time around I wanted to make a more masculine card...definately more challenging for me. I am happy with all the fun stars and the grey and yellow color palette.

    1. Thanks, you're so sweet. The bookmark is made like a little card and then on the inside there are two magnets one on each card "flap"....that way when you wrap it around the pages it sticks together.....click on the Finally Friday link and there is a video it you want to watch the full thing...that's where I learned it from. Have a wonderful day:)
