Easy day!

Since it's Mother's day (and my DH's birthday) I figured I'd take a crafting break. A little one. :) I thought I'd just share a quick and cute little project I made for a couple of customers. The first bookmark I made using the "Forest Friends" stamp set. The second is "Crazy for Cupcakes"; both from SU. They were sooo easy to make. Here's the quick instructions for the "Friend" bookmark:

1. I punched two circles from chocolate chip cardstock and adhered them back to back on the top of the ribbon.

2. I then punched the little owl out with a smaller circle punch and attached it to one side of the larger circle.

3. The tree was done in the same way except that I rounded the corners with a punch.

See? Easy as can be. I think these make cute little gifts for just about anyone. My sister has already put in a request for a Twilight themed bookmark. :)

One of God's greatest gifts in this world is to love and be loved by a child. A small reflection of the amazing love God has for us. Happy Mother's day to all you wonderful mama's out there!
