Lexi's Creations - Challenge #38 - Anything but a CARD!

Morning everyone!! I've been working away like a trooper over the weekend, I want this dissertation finished THIS WEEKEND so I have time to revise for my three exams and plan my last ever 2000 word assignment. I have a simple little bookmark to share with you today, which is perfect for a child.

Thank you to everyone who joined in with our RIBBON - BUT NO KNOT OR BOW challenge last fortnight. It was great to see the creative use of ribbon! :) Congratulations to the Winner #59 Jennifer and GD #83 Sande.

The challenge this fortnight over at Lexi's Creations is 'ANYTHING BUT A CARD'. We want to see a project which doesn't involve a greeting card. I have chosen to make an oh so addictive bookmark. The tutorial can be found over on the SCS forum, HERE is the link.

I have used Georgina Giraffe for this cute little bookmark - I have gone along with a 'children' theme, which is a bit unusal for me, but I couldn't resist this little cutie. Perfect for a little bookmark, and these little bookmarks make the perfect gifts for friends and family.

They are addictive to make, and although I haven't added patterned paper to this one, they are great for using up your scraps. You can make them any size you like, but I tend to stick to 4" square.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:
× Anita be Stampin' - Anything Goes
× A Spoonful of Sugar - All Creatures Great and Small
× DDH - Stitches

Thanks for stopping by today. Head on over to Lexi's Creations and get some inspiration from the talented design team, and then show us your projects, I can't wait to see what you all come up with! xo
