Anything But A Card @ Tammy's Scrapin Corner

Good morning everyone!!! Happy Monday :)  Another weekend flies by!! This weekend, Kevin has been suffering with a toothache. And it is on a tooth that he got filled!!  I even took him to the dentist on Friday thinking we would solve it before the weekend, but no such luck. It was waking him during the night... you know that AWFUL pain you get in your mouth and there is just nothing you can do. I felt so bad for him! There was nothing I could do. I have been alternating Tylenol and Advil every four hours to try to help him. He slept for most of the day on Sunday. The dentist opens up at 8:00 am and he will be there first thing! Other than that, I have been working on some items. I am loving decorating the inside of the cards. My next feat is to make envelopes for everything! I really need to do that LOL

So, on to our challenge #55.. this week we have an 'Anything But A Card' challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner. I decided to make some bookmarks. My very favorite bookmarks are magnetized bookmarks, so that is exactly what I did. Here are my bookmarks:

I really had fun making these and this was first attempt at a bookmark. I used the AWESOME image from SKDigis - Gus the Bookworm. I used sentiments from Sentimental Susan. I used all scraps for my paper. I loved all these school papers, so it was fun to bring out these scraps :)  I inked the edge of each sentiment. Kevin went out and bought me these small magnetic sheets that I was able to use for the magnets in the middle. These type of bookmarks are hard to find and they have always been my favorite! What better way to get them than to make them yourselves!! LOL I love it! They are cute too :) I colored the image with Copic.


    I hope you all have a wonderful week!!  Hopefully Kevin will be feeling better and the weather will warm up a bit. I'm ready to plant my tomatoes!! LOL Have a good one everyone!!

    Oh! Have you all watched "The Bible"? That is what I've been watching for the past five Sundays. It has really been so well done.  Okay.. off to work :)
