Hand Stamped Sentiments - gift ideas

Good Morning Stampers!

Before I share my card for today I wanted to share with you another sneak peek of the other project I created for the Stampin' Fun and Friends Sweet Spring session.  The fun begins on February 1 so if you have not signed up you still have time.  You will not be disappointed as these ladies are very talented.  Here is my second sneak peek.

I have to admit this challenge had me thinking.  I had no idea what I was going to do.  Then it hit me that I owed one of my retirement village ladies some of these as she gave away hers she made as gifts and needed some more.  I then knew what I was going to do.

These are really cute butterfly bookmarks.  They are easy to make also.  I used chipboard and attached my paper using one of our glue sticks.  When it was dry I used the butterfly die to cut out the 2 butterflies.  All I had to do then was use the crop-a-dile and punch my holes.  I threaded the ribbon through and tied a knot.  I v-cut the ends of the ribbon.  I added some dew drops with Crystal Effects and it was done.  Here is what 1 of them looked like.

Hope you enjoyed my gift and will head on over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to see what the other ladies came up with.  I am sure you will love their creations.

Thanks for looking and have a Terrific Tuesday!
