Moving Along Without A Card!

Good Morning Blogland, I have been a really bad blogger these last few weeks, what with two holidays and several bank holidays where we are busy at work, but I really do promise to sort myself out and get to visit you all much more in the next few days and to actually try to post something that is NOT a DT project!

It is however Thursday again which does mean DT time for me already this week over at
and this week my gorgeous teamie Pami has chosen
Anything But A Card
This challenge gives me shivers! I only know how to make cards!

We are sponsored this week by
and they have donated this super prize to the winner
Pop over to the main challenge blog for all the details and to see what my lovely team mates have made for your inspiration.
I have wanted to try and make a bookmark since Lisa showed me one she had made and this was my opportunity - I was amazed how simple but effective this was and now I'm pleased to say I don't only know how to make cards - I can make bookmarks too!
I'm sorry the photo is a bit blurry I didn't have time to retake it before I went on my fortnightly 90 mile trip to take my Mum to Sainsburys! I do get breakfast in bed there though so to me the 180 miles round trip is worth it!
This lovely little girl is now adorning the corner of my new Jackie Collins novel where I can look at my beloved Tilda at the same time as I read my book!

I would like to enter her into the following challenges
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
Totally Tilda - Tilda in Red, White & Blue
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Crafts And Me - Stamp Something

Thank you for stopping by today and to those that do for commenting
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie x

This is stunning Laurie, I adore this image and she looks great on the bookmark, hee hee Tilda and Jackie Collins don't seem to match, She will be letting go of the anchor to cover her eyes at the saucy bits. Hope you have a safe trip to Mums x Love Hazelxo

Hi Laurie, Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog!

Ooh I do love this bookmark! Love the image of nautical Tilda and it's coloured so beautifully! I hope Tilda doesn't read the text though!! the corruption of Tilda! tee hee!! Seriously - it's really great design and I love it!!
I always do cards too! and I want to do other stuff - think I might try and make some bookmarks - they would make nice pressies for Christmas!!!! my mum is always losing her bookmark, so she would be glad of extra one!

Take care
Hugs Sue xxx
