Happy Friday everyone! There's nothing like waiting until the last minute to participate in a challenge, but that's what I did this week! Kim challenged everyone on the Squigglefly challenge blog to make a bookmark. I knew immediately which image I wanted to use, but I just didn't find time until last night to make mine!

I used the Avid Reader image from Squigglefly and colored it with Copic markers. I used a little chalk in the background and then matted it with a piece of brown card stock.
I printed out a back for the bookmark so it could be personalized
and sandwiched a loop of ribbon between.
A friend of mine lost her mother recently and I wanted to make her a card. This is what I came up with

The image is Roses by Angie Davis. It's colored with Copic markers and then lightly chalked with yellow around the image. The sentiment is from Unity. Very simple card, but I tend to keep Sympathy cards simple.
Did you see today's One A Day In May image? It's so Doggone Cute! I'm working on a card now with the Rose Fairy from yesterday that I hope to have ready to show you tomorrow! The One A Days are so much fun - every day a new image to inspire and play with!
