Teacher is a special word :)

Wow, it's been almost a week since I posted a card, well, finally today I have something to show you. :)
It's not a card, but a bookmark which I made for my sister. It's quite simple, no embellishments at all (except a ribbon), but it's how my sister likes it. :)
I'm also entering a couple of challenges with it:
Timbroscrapmania which has the theme -"No cards"
Cute Card Thursday with the theme - "Anything but Square"

I really like this cute C.C Designs little bookworm image called "School Wormy " stamp and the moment I saw it I knew I simply must have it, especially because of the sentiments that go with it, there are three and I've used two of them on this bookmark. My sister is a teacher, she teaches English at a high school :), so the sentiment "Teacher is a special word" was just perfect for the bookmark I wanted to make her and the other sentiment "Read", well, speaks for itself. I used two MME - "Bloom and Grow" papers (well two little pieces, actually) and stamped the images and the sentiments on them. The ribbon and the rope are from stash.

I added some colour to the image with a watercolour pencil and used my Sekura gelly roll pen for the glasses and the "Teacher" word (I'm afraid it doesn't show in the photos).

This is the other side of the bookmark, where I used another sentiment and another piece of paper.

And now, check out the photo bellow:

You may wonder now where I bought the stamps I used for my bookmark, well they came, just like the stamps from the photo above, from JayJay's flohmarkt. That's right! Beside this little set, I also bought a Rachelle Anne Miller stamp and a 25 sentiment red rubber plate and another nice sentiment. I always have an impression that I'm short with sentiments, but I'm not actually, well at least now, definitely. And the lovely JayJay also included another RAM stamp for me and the most amazing card, wow what a fabulous colouring and detail, how very nice of her and the stamps are new, by the way. Thanks so much JayJay!
So check out the fabulous JayJay's flohmarkt, I'm sure you'll find something interesting there. :)

Anyway, the long awaited summer weather finally arrived in our area, in its all glory, I must say... it's been over 30C in the last couple of days and it's about 35C right now, it's just TOO HOT!!

Also, have you seen that High Hopes stamps are having a new release by Dustin Pike and they are having a blog hop, too, on Monday, June 14th!! To read all about it go here.

I hope you all have a lovely Saturday afternoon, thank you for stopping by!


  1. Super little bookmark the bookworm and the gingham ribbon...sweet :) Donna x

  2. Odličan je!!!
    I još ako se tvojoj sestri sviđa onda je pun pogodak!!!
    I žigovi su ti preslatki!
    Jedva čekam da vidim radove koje će krasiti.
    I nema na čemu-drago mi je što te Michaelle izvukla.
    Kako teško nam je teško doći do materijala,moram priznati da bi mi bilo žao da je dobio netko tko već sve to ima i doma.
    Ma stvarno si zaslužila!
