It's been too long since my last post...



and I forgot to take a picture of my Hip Hop Thursday prize pack that arrived on MONDAY! Can you say SUPER FAST!  I did however take a picture of my daughter using some bubble wrap from the package as a scarf! :)

So here was my project for the day.  What is it you ask, it's a bookmark. When I saw these posted on SCS, I knew I wanted to try making them. I believe I saw some that Tanis, Paper Princess at Play, had made and they inspired me.  This one is for my mom, who I'm pretty sure doesn't read my blog. (If you do, sorry to ruin the surprise) It probably would have taken less time if I knew what I wanted to do or what I wanted on it, but all I knew was that I wanted to play with my new Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine paper and Unity stamps.  I ended up choosing my August KOTM and having fun with that.  I did a little paper piecing on the trailer with the little red hearts and though that the window could use some glitter.  
The stitching is hand done and the last thing I decided to do, next time it will be the first.  (For those of you who know me, I still haven't used my sewing machine!!! I really need to stop being afraid of it, or maybe it's the fact that I would have to set it up to use it) There will be more bookmarks to share later on this week, although I'm having a hard time stamping and sharing right now because I will be giving away Christmas secrets.  Oh well, if you don't want to see what you are getting, DON'T LOOK! ;)
