How was your Easter? Ours was wonderful, I will be back with pics to share in a day or two...
But for now I have some book marks to share .
I have a special friend that is invited to the Walk To Emasus every year to speak, and she loves to give away gifts. This is the second year she asked me to make bookmarks to go with the Bibles she is giving away...After the very long winter here her only request was to use these verses again and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE use pastels maybe we can get Spring to break out here : )
I enjoyed making these ~ such happy colors ~ and I was able to use up some of my stash. the inserts are corner rounded and edged in ink to match the back piece ,,,the scripture is computer generated ( with help from my oldest grand daughter ~ thanks Ali girl ) the cross is a favorite little stamp I have ... The ribbon work was decided and done by my youngest daughter, she knows ribbon is not my best technique lol I corner rounded the bottoms of the back pieces, the top was too snug of a fit with the ribbon in place...
A valuable lesson learned : )
And a close up
Some of you heard me wishing~ very loudly ~ that I had not waited until the last two days to make these ~ Yes I knew for a month or two * sigh .
So there was just a few time consuming steps, since I made 60 of these : )
I was not complaining, well other than my back hurting from bending over the cutter and snapping the metal guide on that cutter too lol
But I love doing these for Miss Amy, I feel blessed to know her and honored to do any thing for her
So now we wait to see if it worked ~ So far we have much sun shine and nice temps ...
maybe I should have made them sooner ???
I hope to upload Easter pics to share, we have my grandsons birthday party tonight and a 50 th Anniversary celebration to attend tomorrow
My Krista is doing the cake : ) I cannot wait to see that
So grab a glass of tea, and check in in a day or two...
As always, thanks for Stopping by ,
Smile and Enjoy your day
